New Graduate Veterinary Surgeon

We’re expanding! …. So what makes us different to all the other 100s of adverts out there? I hear you saying!

We want people to be part of our story…

We’ve had Vets with us for many years and others that have joined us more recently, and we are looking to recruit again! Why? Because we know we can offer a supportive and flexible environment for a new grad vet or a Vet that is at the beginning of their career.

One of our Vets joined us 2 years ago, tired, disgruntled and wanting out of the profession. They were and still are a great Vet and we saw an opportunity to make her love the profession she joined and give her some of the things back she had lost in his previous role…

We gave her the work life balance she craved ( yes even as a Vet in a busy practice ) No OOH, a varied case load, a training and development plan, modern facilities and a caring, friendly team to work with who are always there to help each other. Yes, the job is stressful at times but what job isn’t? But we create a place to excel, feel appreciated and respected, and to be supported to do the job you trained to do.

We pull together as a team and we get through the tough days, no infighting just a strong team who want to do the best for patient and practice.

  1. reward people for their hard work and as such we are in a position to recruit a new SA Vet. You will receive the same opportunities as all of our Vets, experienced or not, the same working environment,  the same great team to work with and everything that goes with it. Obviously, the salary will be slightly less as you are not a Head Vet just yet…

Based in Livingston on the outskirts of Edinburgh and Glasgow, with great facilities, great nightlife and culture and a great international network of transportation. These are just added extras to how awesome we are, as we know life is just as important as work!

A caring, kind, emphatic person is more important to us than your experience. I don’t want to go on too much as you might be reading this on a rare break, but if you feel you are our next Vet then we would love to hear from you…
