The Role

Here at Adams Vets we are looking for a dedicated Veterinary Surgeon to join the team. The role involves a mixture of consulting and surgical time.

The working day is from 9:00am to 6:30pm with two scheduled gaps for catching up with admin. We offer our Vets the choice of working 4 full days (8.5 hours) with 1 weekday off or 3 full and 2 half days (4 hours). We value our teams’ work-life balance and understand how important it is to provide different options to suit individual needs. Our Vets currently work 1 in 3 Saturday mornings. Whilst we don’t offer an out-of-hours service, we occasionally accept stable overnight inpatients for intravenous fluid therapy.

The salary for this role is up to £45,000 depending on experience.

About Us

At Adams Vets, we work as one team split between our two branches, Fazakerley and Wavertree. Our Fazakerly Clinic is situated in North Liverpool with excellent transport links to the surrounding area and free parking on site. Our Wavertree clinic is situated in South Liverpool near lots of lovely restaurants, cafes, and bars (perfect for a staff night out).

Our clinics are equipped with radiography, ultrasonography, tonometry, microscopy, full laboratory, dedicated inpatient wards, operating theatres, and consulting rooms. Successful candidates will be offered the choice of splitting their time between both branches or working solely at our Fazakerley branch.

We are a close-knit team that prides ourselves in delivering excellent patient care. Between our 2 clinics we have 8 Veterinary Surgeons, 5 Registered Veterinary Nurses, 1 Student Veterinary Nurse, 3 Veterinary Care Assistants and 3 Receptionists. Our practice cat, Cham, is a much-loved part of our team and an excellent lunch break lap warmer. We work closely with local rescue centres and hold team events to raise money for charity. Most recently, we walked 1 million steps in 7 days to raise money for Vet Life!
