About the Role

As a qualified Veterinarian you already have a pretty good idea as to the day-to-day requirements of being a great member of the dynamic team behind any great clinic.

  • Interesting caseload (no nail clips here!)
  • Emergency medicine and critical care – previous experience not essential
  • Well-equipped practice with full in-house lab, digital x-ray, ultrasound, CT scanner and multi parameter monitoring equipment

This role is flexible for the right candidate – part-time, full-time, support role, permanent or semi-permanent locum shifts. We are happy to discuss how to make the role work for you.

What’s on Offer?
