Lead Veterinary Surgeon

  • Job #787

Lead Veterinary Surgeon. Mansfield. £60k-80k per annum plus profit share.
You don’t want to be just an SA vet all your career, you are ambitious, want your own voice and a say in how things are run.
You are a caring vet with aspirations to lead and maybe own your practice in the future but can’t do that where you are. Not listened to, reluctant to change, you don’t want a job: you want a career, your own team, ownership maybe.
We know of an independent practice, opening its third branch, modern, with all the kit, where you can lead from the front, a team raring to go with the freedom to ‘do your own thing.’ A practice where patients come first rather than the bottom line.

Luckily this one is hiring.  Interested?

Based in Mansfield, Notts this independent practice is hiring for growth. With a reputation for value, the customer base is respectful and loyal, with an understanding of what you do, no angry customers here moaning about price increases!

They have managed to find the right balance of ambition to improve and grow, built the teams correctly, and not made profits their ultimate driver. This is a practice where everybody pulls together when there’s work and relaxes when it’s time. A strong team who wants the best for patient and practice.

You will be rolling up your sleeves from the start and getting stuck in. With full clinical freedom from Day One, leading a small team, you are free to run this as your own with the full support of the two experienced Directors to help guide and advise where necessary.

They are flexible on hours here but are ideally looking at a 4-day week, no OOH (unless you want to), and 1 in 3 Sat mornings.  They want you rested, refreshed, and at the best of your abilities when it is time to help.

So, what’s in it for you? £60k-£80k per annum with a bonus and profit share. VDS and RCVS paid for, subscriptions to the BVA, BSAVA, SPVS plus a generous CPD budget and opportunities for certificates. Holiday entitlement is 25 days plus BH’s and a day off for your birthday.
With shops and amenities near to the practice and a short drive to The Peak District with its stately homes and historic castles, world-class heritage sites, distilleries, and outdoor adventures what’s not to like?

So, what’s next?
Choosing a new practice is a big decision. You are looking for a leadership role, a step up, a practice that gives you the autonomy you need to thrive and develop but most of all a place where you can call home.
Send your CV, don’t worry if it’s not up to date. We can’t get the whole story in a job ad so ask any questions. I’ll answer honestly, no hard sell.
Help shape the future of this practice.

  • Job #786

Veterinary Surgeon. Chesterfield. £35k-£70k DOE
You didn’t become a vet to spend less time with patients, did you? But with production line consultations, increased paperwork, and targets creeping in, that’s how it feels.
You care deeply about your profession, want to be the best vet you can be, and marry up your beliefs with a practice that feels the same.
You are looking for a place that cares, where you own your cases, learn, add value, feel appreciated, spend quality time with patients, and see cases through.
Luckily there are still places like that, and this one is hiring.
Based near the pretty market town of Chesterfield this independent practice is hiring due to a vet moving to an ECC position after learning lots during her time at this clinic. With a reputation for value, the customer base is respectful and loyal with an understanding of what you do- no angry customers here moaning about price increases!
You will join a caring team that has struck the right balance of ambition to improve and grow, build the team carefully, and not make profits their ultimate driver. This is a practice where everybody pulls together when there’s work and relaxes when it’s time. A strong team who wants the best for patient and practice.
Expect a varied caseload here with a good mix of consults and surgery, owning your cases, and seeing them through. Ideally, they are looking for two year plus experienced vets but it’s an empathetic, caring person they are most interested in. With 8 vets, ranging from 4 months to 29 years qualified and with all that knowledge you are not short of people to help and learn from.
Full Time or Part Time- the management embrace flexible working. Most of the vets work a four-day week with one early finish and a 1/5 OOH rota and weekends. You will be paid extra for each patient seen with a Monday off post-weekend work.
So, what’s in it for you? £35k-£70k per annum, plus generous OOH fees. VDS and RCVS paid for and professional memberships. Holidays: 25 days plus BH’s and a day off for your birthday. CPD is actively encouraged and so is further learning, with an extensive CPD budget covering that to certificate level. Not forgetting the fully paid fabulous Christmas party, more about that at interview!
If you like the outdoors, The Peak District with its stately homes and historic castles, world-class heritage sites, distilleries, and outdoor adventures is only a short drive away. Or if it’s restaurants, shopping, and modern facilities you are after Chesterfield is on your doorstep with Sheffield and Nottingham nearby.
So, what’s next?
Choosing a new practice is a big decision. You are looking to work with a caring team who have the right values, a place where you can develop, add value, and give back to the profession you love.
Send your CV, don’t worry if it’s not up-to-date. We can’t get the whole story in a job ad so ask any questions. I’ll answer honestly, no hard sell.
Be a better more fulfilled vet.
