They strive for the best patient and animal care with a huge amount of knowledge in their broad-based team including Farm, Equine, SA, Poultry and Pig vets. In addition to a varied medical and surgical caseload, there will be ample opportunities for the successful candidate to develop their clinical interests in areas such dairy fertility, herd and flock health planning and advanced breeding.

The Practice

The main Parklands Cookstown and Dungannon surgeries are purpose built and designed buildings allowing us to provide the most optimal environment for examining, treating and nursing.

Parklands have an opening in their farm team, we are a large and friendly team with a young bias, Covid permitting we enjoy CPD events together with team building activities, barbeques, festive dinners and nights out! Anyone requiring a mentor/clinical coach (vet GDP) will have one named for them

Based in the bustling of Cookstown which is located in the heart of Northern Ireland. It is the perfect place to sample food, drink and traditional Irish hospitality. Being centrally located means that Cookstown is accessible from all parts of Northern Ireland, it being just 48 miles from Belfast. It has all the amenities and facilities you would expect, and yet it is still within easy reach of some stunning natural scenery. The dramatic Sperrin Mountains loom over the town, whilst the Drum Manor Forest Parkland and the spectacular waters of Lough Neagh are just a short drive away.

This is a great chance to be involved in an independent practice surrounded by a motivated supportive team helping you to do the work you are trained to do.
