The Role

We are seeking a Veterinary Surgeon with experience to integrate within our friendly team. The role we have on offer can be full (4.5 days) or part time (3 days) plus 1:5 weekends, negotiable for the right candidate. We actively encourage further studies such as certificates and have the case load to support this.

We encourage in-house case work up with the support from visiting specialists when required, however we are also happy to refer cases when appropriate. Salary range £40,000 – £50,000 (FTE) depending on experience.
