About the Job

Backshift Second Vet Surgeon

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 from 1830 to 0030. There is no weekend commitment for this role which is a rarity in ECC. By working with another Vet during the clinics busiest hours you will have best of both worlds – exposure to a diverse caseload and the opportunity to share knowledge with another ECC Vet.

A career enhancing caseload

Our out of hours clinic in Colchester has an exciting and diverse caseload  – perfect for learning and development. Alongside the support of another Vet and our seasoned nursing team, you will have access to first class career development opportunities. From accredited ECC certification support to coaching and mentoring from your Senior Vet, you can take control of your career development from day one.

We look after you, so you can look after them

Recognising hard work is really important to us. Our employees are our greatest asset which is why we offer a first class benefits and rewards package that includes:

•  6.6 weeks pro rata annual leave

•  Your birthday as a paid day off

•  Private medical insurance
