About the Job

Up to £85,000 DOE, Plus £10,000 Recognition Bonus, Plus £5000 Relocation allowance

Join us for a work life extraordinary

Our Stoke clinic is located within a purpose built Hospital, with fantastic facilities. To head up this outstanding team, we are seeking an experienced Veterinary Surgeon with a drive for clinical excellence and a passion for mentoring and developing others to join us as a Senior Vet Surgeon.

Together we save pets’ lives

Our Senior Vet Surgeons are leaders. They nurture and support emerging talent and help shape the careers of emergency clinicians. Coupled with a diverse range of cases, a Senior Vet Surgeon in Stoke will lead from the front in achieving high quality patient care, excellent client care and encourage a team work mentality.

Out-of-hours doesn’t mean ALL hours

Its a common misconception that working out-of-hours means you will be working all the time. Our Vets and Nurses find the opposite. Our shifts tend to be longer so you work fewer of them. Based on a full time role, the Senior Vet in Stoke will work an average of 40 hours per week, which is an average of 2-3 shifts per week.

Working a mix of weekday nights or backshifts and a fair share of weekends (either days,nights or backs) we will work with you to find the right work/life balance for you.

This role is advertised as full-time but we are happy to consider part-time.
