The Role

We have a fantastic opportunity for an experienced Veterinary Surgeon, with a medical bias, to take a lead position with our medical cases. Competence with ultrasound scanning is essential. Our caseload is varied, and no two days are the same. We are big on preventative healthcare, high standards of care, great customer service and client continuity. We want to make sure that you have time to follow up on cases and spend more time with your patients, so we run 15-minute consultations. NB since lockdown while clients not coming in the building, we are running 20-minute consultations. We are looking for someone to take on the responsibilities of the medical referrals and develop the skills of our up-and-coming veterinary graduates. 

• Working four-day week
• Some weekend work may be needed, this is negotiable
• No OOH
• Part time applications considered

About Us

We have an amazing team and lovely clients; we are also based in a fantastic location. We are only 15 minutes by train to central Leeds, yet woodland walks and the Yorkshire Dales on our doorstep. Work/life balance highly rated! We see a mixture of routine and preventative work, as well as interesting medical and surgical cases. We provide first opinion care to small animals but also some internal medicine referrals. We are proud to also work with a local hedgehog charity. 

Our teams are really friendly and welcoming. We all really support each other and enjoying our working days together, which is very important to us. Our fantastic team is made up of 5 Vet Surgeons, 4 RVN’s, VCA’s and Receptionists. We are all like-minded people with our own interests. We are keen to support your interests and career goals so please do speak to us about these!
