Job Type:       Veterinary Surgeon

Salary:            From £40,000+ pa DOE

Hours:            Full or part Time. No OOH’s

Location:        Redruth, Cornwall

Job ref:           601

Here at Vetfinders we are helping a practice find their next hire. They have a new opportunity for a proactive and enthusiastic Veterinary Surgeon to join their team.

If you are an individual who is committed to the growth and development of both yourself and your clients, then come and join this independent small animal practice in Redruth, Cornwall.


  • Opening hours: Monday – Friday: 8.30am – 6.30pm
  • Open 8:30-12:30 on Saturdays, closed on Sundays.
  • Out-of-hours are covered by an external emergency vet service

We have 15-minute consult times and our support team are wonderful in helping us to work up cases fully. We have a well-equipped laboratory which allows in house testing of T4, SDMA Cortisol, Bile Acids as well as the usual suspects, and we have recently added the brand new Sediview Machine to our arsenal, allowing quick and comprehensive urinalysis.

Our focus here is very much patient and client based, with profits being a benefit of good medicine rather than the driving force behind it. We encourage the formation of working relationships between our staff and clients and believe that it is important that we enjoy what we do.

I am looking at implementing a rota pattern that gives each vet a mix of later starts, earlier finishes and one full day off per week. The way it is set out can be tweaked according to each individual's needs and of course will change with things like holiday cover etc.

If you love being a vet, enjoy a bit of banter and would like to work with a team that genuinely has a good time at work then we'd love to hear from you.

This could suit a new grad, a minimum of 2 years’ experience preferred. There is no sole-charge.


  • RCVS
  • VDS Paid
  • CPD allowance

The Practice

The practice was formed in 2012 when the current owner decided to take on the challenge of owning her own surgery, she then purchased the well-established practice on North Street, Redruth, which is now called Redruth Veterinary Surgery.
