We are an Independent, RCVS Accredited small animal surgery with a reputation for outstanding clinical work and superior client care seeking an experienced and enthusiastic vet to join our growing practice.  The practice is situated in leafy Banstead, Surrey – a short distance from London to the North and Brighton to the South. Great outdoor opportunities – hiking, horse riding, water sports, cycling – and with time to pursue a hobby!

The successful candidate will join an excellent team of staff including an Internal Medicine specialist (ACVIM), surgery certificate holders, general practitioners and experienced RVNs, working in modern well-equipped facilities achieving high clinical standards.  Digital x-ray, ultrasound, laparoscopy, endoscopy, in-house lab, isolation ward, separate cat and dog waiting areas, consult rooms, prep rooms, theatres and wards – try not to get lost!

We are looking for an enthusiastic, compassionate and motivated vet who works well as part of a team.  Excellent communication skills are essential.  Ideally the candidate would have sufficient experience to be confident when consulting or performing basic soft-tissue surgery.
