Small Animal Veterinary Surgeon – Sidmouth, Devon – £50-70k

Kindness, openness, and support –three things that this practice has in abundance, and they are recruiting.
If you are stuck in a rut, thinking about your future, and looking for a new supportive home where you can develop look no further than here. Regular CPD is offered and encouraged, whilst certificates are fully supported.
Not only is it set in the beautiful county of Devon, it is a progressive independent with an experienced team of veterinary professionals, offering clinical freedom, and autonomy.
It is no secret that being a vet is hard work. You’re a vet, you know. The more cases you work on, the more adept you get. Developing through experience.  But it can be long and demanding hours, that can offer little work-life balance.
At this practice, they do not believe in working their vets ‘into the ground,’ that’s why they have scheduled breaks throughout the day and 20-minute consults as standard, to allow you to build relationships and give the best possible care you can to each patient.
 We will start with the person and fit the role around you whether you have one or ten years experience.  With a growing practice and a strong loyal client base that’s growing weekly, you will be involved right from the start.
The rota’s fair and sensible: 38-hour, 4-day week with a fixed day off. One weekend in four. When you are on the weekend rota you will cover Saturday morning consults in practice between 9 am – 1 pm, and the OOHs until 6:30 pm, as well as on-call Sunday 8:30 am – 6:30 pm, therefore the ability and confidence to do sole charge is a must.  
In the last PSS report they were commended on the level of care they took over all of their staff.  That’s the beauty of being independent, they are not in the cross hairs of corporate life, there are no clinical targets for vets, and no one telling you to do more lab work let’s face it the job is tough enough without adding additional stress.
Most importantly, you want to develop, you want to be part of a team working together towards a shared goal. You want to use the skills you have and develop the ones you are less experience in, you want to progress.
