About the Job
Backshift Second Vet
Up to £30ph
Working out of hours doesnt mean working all hours
If you're looking for a rewarding career in a fast-paced but friendly environment then Vets Now is for you. Our ethos is simple – to give people and their pets the care and support they deserve, at the time they need it most and our Vet Surgeons are vital to delivering this ethos.
We are looking for a Vet Surgeon to work evenings and/or weekends alongside our fantastic team of Vets, Nurses and support staff in our Stoke clinic. This is an excellent opportunity for someone looking to step into Emergency and Critical Care but not ready to go sole charge, you will be on shift with another Vet Surgeon.
With such a diverse caseload, emergency Vets will be continually challenged medically and surgically. You will be supported and mentored in clinic by your Senior Vet and will have the opportunity to advance your career through development or studying towards a certificate if you chose to do so.
We have hours available between 19:00-00:00 Mon-Fri, 17:00-00:00 Saturday and 12:00-22:00 Sunday. If you are interested in picking up as little as 1 in 4 weekends or as many as 5 days per week, we can be fairly flexible with our rota patterns.
