Job Vacancy


www link Veterinary Surgeon

6-vet independent small animal practice with great support and nursing team in fantastic location. Full-time but job share or part-time considered.

We are an IFSM and RCVS accredited practice and nurse training centre, our nurses being trained by our own ‘home-grown’ qualified nurses. Our nursing team provide good support for both our inpatients and surgical cases as well as through their clinics (post op checks, puppy/kitten clinics, nail clips, anal glands and weight clinics). We are lucky to have good referral support as well as visiting surgical specialists. 

The practice is based in Sudbury, a lovely market town surrounded by beautiful countryside and villages but only 45mins from Stansted and 1 hour from Cambridge by car and 1hr 20mins from London by train. The water meadows across the road provide for great dog walking or a run at lunchtime and SUP/canoeing on days off and summer evenings.  Our branch surgery is in Great Yeldham, about 25mins away.    

We are looking for an enthusiastic vet with good communication skills to join and work as part of our friendly team at our Sudbury branch -/+ the Yeldham branch, depending on experience and confidence (we like to support our less experienced vets so they wouldn’t work at a branch in sole charge –not good for their development or the clients). We have a loyal client base and case continuity is encouraged to grow your own ‘following’. Experience preferred but full support will be given to a less experienced colleague to develop and grow. Particular interests, such as imaging or orthopaedic surgery, are welcomed or can be developed but the role would also suit an aspiring all round general practitioner interested in developing their skills and their relationship with our clients and their pets. 

-15 minute consults, though currently longer with Covid closed door policy.

-Usual kit that you would expect such as dental xray.

-One set operating day a week, but the opportunity to operate on other days too.

-1 day off a week  

-1 in 5 on-call rota, with less experienced vets supported by Richard and Simon 

-5 weeks holiday

-RCVS and VDS memberships funded

-Fully funded CPD and allocated time  

-Competitive salary, based on experience

-Full time position but would consider job share/part time.

To apply or for more details please email or phone Richard or Simon on 01787 372588 for an informal chat about the position.
