The Role

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Veterinary Surgeon to join Eastbourne Vets, Seaside. All our Vets work on a 4-day week rota with a requirement for 1 and 4 weekends and no on call. On a typical day, you will start the morning consults at 09:00. The appointments can be very varied ranging from admitting animals that are coming in for surgery or investigations, to routine appointments like Vaccinations or if animals are unwell. After the morning consults, the Vet will support the Nurses to prepare the animals that are in for surgical procedures and complete the surgery. After lunch, the afternoons and evenings will be back to consulting and discharging the surgical patients and any inpatients well enough to go home. During the afternoon the Vet will have free time to phone clients and complete paperwork.


Salary for the role is up to £55,000 per annum depending on experience.
