Do you want to be part of a friendly, dynamic team with a feline medicine cert holder, visiting cardiologist and orthopaedic surgeon to learn from? We are looking for a dedicated and enthusiastic Veterinary Surgeon to join our team. We offer a 4 day week as standard. Out of hours Weeknights 1:5 consults until 7pm, then inpatient care only if the nursing team need help. Critical cases referred to Vets now for monitoring. We have a dedicated duty/inpatient vet each night allowing you to leave on time the rest of the week.
Weekends are Saturday am consults then on call until 5pm. Sunday on call only 8-5pm, Vets now outside these times. We offer a good mix of consults and theatre time.

Kingswood Vets is a well-established local practice in Woking, with 2 branches within a 15 minute drive. We moved to a new purpose built hospital premises in 2018. We have a really good mix of well insured clients wanting gold standard plus RSPCA and other charity work. All the usual toys including tonopen, surgical diathermy, digital dental x-ray. Plenty of time to work up cases with support available if needed.
As work life balance is important to us, Woking is full of things to do, we are surrounded by golf courses, country parks like Lightwater Country Park, RHS Garden Wisley, unspoilt scenic walks which includes Pyrford Lock, a theatre, galleries and The Living Planet Centre. We do still have great transport links though being around 30 minutes from London Centre on the train
