The Vetcare Centres, Guernsey                                             www.vetcare.gg

Come and be part of our beautiful Island’s life.

Guernsey offers a safe, relaxed pace of life, giving you the chance to enjoy our award-winning beaches in a mild climate with fabulous west coast sunsets and stunning cliff views. Our quaint capital has many cafés and outstanding restaurants, with Jersey and France just a day trip away. Whether you enjoy cycling, walking, boating or want to participate in the wide range of activities in the arts or just prefer to enjoy family life there is something for everyone.

We are looking for an enthusiastic and motivated first opinion vet to join in our team of 4 vets and 10 nurses. A few years of experience is preferred but this could also suit a relatively new graduate.

We are a well-established 2 branch 99 % small animal veterinary practice aiming to provide excellence in all aspects of pet care.

We have a fantastic nursing team waiting for you and we’ll do our utmost to support your career progression while giving you a chance to integrate in our wonderful island community.

 

We offer a Competitive Salary (40 to 65 K) and we provide you with a car, paid membership (BVA/RCVS/VDS) as well as CPD allowance and Webinar Vet membership.

Our quiet OOH work is emergencies only with no need to stay at the surgery and with VN triage support. You will also get remuneration on each Call Out.

Although this is a full-time position, we would be happy to look at any part time opportunities.

 

If this lifestyle appeals to you, we would love to hear from you. This is a chance to be involved in a growing practice surrounded by a motivated supportive team helping you to do the work you are trained to do.
