The Role

We have a wonderful opportunity for an experienced Veterinary Surgeon to come and join our Mixed practice in Speyside. We can be flexible with various options to suit the right candidate. Ideally a full-time, mixed practice vet would be lovely, however we would be equally pleased to hear from someone keen to discuss a part time option with us (be that one or two days a week or perhaps one short stint a month). We could provide private accommodation for a locum looking for regular work (either through an agency or by joining us on a zero hours contract). · Salary 35-60k commensurate with experience and (more importantly) contribution to the practice.
We are a genuinely mixed practice, a candidate with a species preference could potentially be accommodated, however there would be a requirement to participate in a mixed out of hours rota (we always have two vets on call, with time off in lieu for full-time staff). We would be happy to discuss species preference and degree of out of hours commitment required. The exception to this could be someone with a particular interest in equine dentistry – we could discuss a part-time role for a purely Equine Vet with the OOH rota. We would love to hear from anyone with ideas as to how they could contribute to a mixed practice in a less ‘conventional’ way.

About Us

We are a friendly bunch with a range of experience, keen on case discussion and team support. Whilst we have a true mix of work (50% small animal, 30% large – though no dairy – and 20% equine), we encourage further development in specific areas of interest to provide a better service to our clients and maximise career satisfaction for our staff. For example we have an equine certificate holder and small animal surgeons who undertake a lot of our own orthopaedic work at our thriving dedicated small animal surgery. We are keen to invest in the right equipment to help us do our job to the best standard we can e.g. dental x-rays, cattle tipping crate and equine DR equipment. Everyone’s ideas and opinions on how to progress the practice are valued and we have regular Friday morning clinical chats to encourage open discussion.
