About the Job

Stoke– Vet Surgeon

Up to £70,000 DOE plus £10,000 recognition bonus, plus £5000 relocation allowance

Be part of a phenomenal team

A fantastic opportunity has arisen to join our professional team at our purpose built hospital based in Stoke. You will be working alongside a Senior team of Vets, Nurses, Animal Care assistants and receptionist within an amazing high-end facility. You will not be working sole charge, you will be working alongside at least one of our experienced Vets, at times even two, meaning you can share learning, and work on more complex cases together.

As well as the guidance of our vets on shift, you will also have the continued mentorship and support of not only our Senior Vets in the clinic but also our Clinical lead for the area.

This is an excellent opportunity for someone who thrives on ECC, working on a broad range of cases and appreciates the high volume of our cases.

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

At Vets Now we champion work/life balance and understand how important this is for our people. Working a fair share of weeknights, weekend days/nights and bank holidays, you will work an average of 3 shifts per week for a full-time 40 hours per week contract. Typically, our rota patterns incorporate an extended period off regularly so you can really maximise your personal time.

As with any role within Vets Now we appreciate that one size doesn’t fit all. Finding the right work/life balance for you is our priority, so we are happy to consider this role on part-time basis.

So, whether you’re studying for a certificate, looking to return to work, or just looking for a better work/life balance, we will work with you to find the role for you.

Delivering clinical excellence

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.
