Rotating Internships

Vets Now Referrals, Swindon

Swindon Hospital Job Opportunities

We are delighted to announce exciting new opportunities for Veterinary Surgeons at our multi-disciplinary Referral Hospital at Swindon. We are offering one 12 month rotating internship starting in Autumn 2016.

The internship programme is designed for highly motivated recent veterinary graduates who wish to expand their skills, knowledge and experience in all aspects of small animal practice.

The internship position is suitable as a foundation for those wishing to pursue specific discipline specialist training in the future (residency) or those wishing to increase their knowledge and experience for return to general practice.

Our rotating intern will work partly within our emergency-OOH team (OOH and some weekends) and partly alongside our referral specialists (Surgery, Medicine, Dermatology, and ECC).

Formal training is provided via a seminar series as well as access to Vets Now’s extensive internal on line training.

The internships are based on a 45 hour working week including weekend and OOHs on a rotational basis. Benefits include a CPD package, access to our directed training programme Moodle, VDS registration, well-being package, Contributory Pension and 5.6 weeks holiday entitlement including public holidays.

Applicants should be mature, focused, hardworking, and eager to learn and have excellent communication and interpersonal skills – a good command of spoken and written English is essential and would also be desirable that applicants provide evidence of competency in speaking English, as determined by a formal qualification in English (such as IELTS or TOEFL).

Applicants should also have strong academic references, good practical and time keeping skills and be able to work in a team and on their own. Membership of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons is essential. Applicants should also be eligible to work in the UK and have the appropriate Visa documents.

To apply please send a current CV and covering letter to laura.collings@vets-now.com.

Closing date is 11th September 2016.
