About the Job

Vet Surgeon  

Up to £62,000 DOE plus benefits

Develop your Emergency and Critical Care skills in a top profile clinic

Vets Now Colchester have an opportunity to shine of one of our top profile clinics, develop surgery and medical skills and work alternate weekends. We are offering a rota pattern that includes an average 40 hour week, 1:2 weekends, 12 hour nightshifts and a fair share of weekday nights and bank holidays.

Provide support and care at a time when it’s needed most

By sharing the rota with two other full time Vets, you can have the best of both worlds – working sole charge at times but being part of an established bigger team when busier. Weekends and bank holidays can be our busiest times and Colchester is staffed with additional vets, nurses and Animal Care Assistants on these days to provide extra support and care when emergency and critical care is needed the most.

Our employees are our greatest asset which is why we offer a first class benefits and rewards package that could include 6.6 weeks annual leave, private medical insurance, comprehensive CPD allowance, pension contributions, professional membership, 50% discounted staff pet care, death in service of two times annual salary, membership of employee wellbeing programme, company sick pay scheme, company maternity, paternity and adoption pay scheme and your birthday as a day off.

Celebrating success

As well as providing a competitive package of rewards and benefits, we also take pride in celebrating our successes. This includes hosting an annual awards ceremony for those who have exceeded expectations. Clinical staff are also encouraged to attend our annual ECC Congress, the largest in the UK, which features an array of internationally accredited speakers, delegates and exhibitors.
