About the Job

Backshift Vet Surgeon via AdvantEdge ECC Programme

Up to £63,800 DOE pro rata plus benefits

A rare opportunity to work as a second Vet

Working as an emergency Vet Surgeon will expose you to a diverse range of cases that you simply won’t see in general practice.  Vets Now Colchester have a rare opportunity for a Vet Surgeon to work consistently alongside another Vet. At Vets Now, our Vets generally work sole charge – this is a great opportunity to share the caseload with another Vet and full support team.

The thrill of emergency and critical care without the weekend commitment

This role includes working an average of 30 hours per week Monday to Friday between 6.30pm and 12.30am. There is no weekend commitment for this role which is a rarity in ECC – ideal for your work / life balance. Working with another Vet during the clinics busiest hours will give you the best of both worlds – exposure to a diverse caseload and the opportunity to share knowledge with another ECC Vet. We can also offer a place on our AdvantEdge programme.

75 hours of free CPD designed by veterinary experts

The AdvantEdge programme contains at least 75 hours of free CPD designed and delivered by veterinary experts. The lectures and practical sessions take place at our Support Office in Dunfermline and is the perfect opportunity to build lasting relationships with other teams.

•  Abdo and Thoracic Radiology

•  Analgesia and CRI’s

•  Cardiac Emergencies

•  CPR Practical

•  Dyspnoea

•  Managing Shock

•  Neurological Emergencies

•  Toxicology
