Make your weekends work at Vets Now

Whether you are working a second job or looking to get more ECC experience, this is a great opportunity to further your own knowledge and work with a team who are passionate about progressing the world of emergency and critical care.

As a roving Vet Surgeon, you will thrive within an ever-changing environment spending your time across 3 different emergency clinics in the Kent area, giving you exposure to a diverse range of cases that you simply won’t see in general practice. The clinics you will cover in this position will include our Gillingham, Ashford and Herne Bay clinics.

Working out-of-hours doesn’t mean working all hours

This weekend roving role will involve working day shifts across the various clinics. Working alternate weekends, the shift times would typically cover (with some backshifts available):

  • Saturday: 12pm – 7.30pm
  • Sunday: 8.30am – 7.30pm
  • Plus a fair share of bank holidays

Develop your skills with an interesting caseload

With such a varied caseload, emergency Vets will be continually challenged medically and surgically. This is an opportunity for an individual that likes to work in a larger team whilst being supported with a strong mentoring and development ethos.
