About the Job

Vet Surgeon

Up to £65,000 DOE pro rata plus benefits

A work life extraordinary with Vets Now Canterbury

Working as an emergency Vet can be challenging. The caseload is diverse and the hours can be unsociable. Yet with unpredictability comes opportunity. Working as an emergency Vet Surgeon will expose you to a diverse range of cases that you simply won’t see in general practice – perfect for learning and career development.

1:2 weekend rotation and no more than three nights in a row

We are looking for a Vet that relishes the diverse caseload you see in Emergency and Critical Care to complete the team. We recognise a work/life balance is of the upmost importance and this opportunity provides great scope for clinical excellence and career development with adequate time off-shift. The rota pattern will involve 1:2 weekends, a mix of weekday nights and a fair share of bank holidays. We will consider part time hours for the right candidate.

Out of hours doesn’t necessarily mean out of reach

The Canterbury clinic is staffed with a supportive team and features state of the art equipment. The team thrives on a diverse private caseload and will double up at the weekends to provide emergency care at a time when it’s needed most.

Great place to work

  • 6.6 weeks annual leave
  • private medical insurance
  • comprehensive CPD allowance
