We are a privately owned, client friendly practice in Nottinghamshire with 4 fully functioning surgeries and two branch practices. We plan to expand our small animal staff levels this year to help manage an ever increasing work load across all sites. We intend to expand our Newark site into a full hospital in the next 9-18 months, this was delayed from last year due to covid. We have tried to keep as covid safe as possible throughout the pandemic and have not returned clients to the consulting room other than for specific circumstance. We plan to look at the safe return to clients in the building as and when this is needed and safe.
We have a small animal position available, with no out of hours work but some daytime weekend work on a 1 in 5 rota with time back the following week.
We are looking for a candidate who can stand on their own two feet from the off, but sole charge at a surgical branch is not necessarily required.
The position can be full or part time with the working week negotiable. There is no on call or out of hours work although there will be 1 in 5 weekend days to be worked on a rota basis from our Newark practice. In reward for the weekend work there days rota’d off in the following week. This work intends be a minimum of 2 small animal vets covering consults and the work that produces with back up from the on call staff when needed, but no routine surgery booked.
As you should expect from any good employer we are looking for someone to fit in to a friendly and helpful team dynamic, who can be an asset to the practice while progressing both personally and professionally.
We encourage clinical freedom and allow staff to find a role or niche they enjoy within the practice and all of our positions have the flexibility to adapt to areas of clinical interest and we expect roles to evolve over time.
We have a very good range of diagnostic equipment.
For the small animal side we have; digital x-ray with dental xray, digital endoscope/rhinoscope , ultrasound, ECG, suction, pulse ox and recently upgraded Idexx lab equipment at all of our 6 branches alongside a newly developed in house microbiology lab.
As a practice we like to be progressive in our approach to diagnostics so will invest in equipment that will be utilised and beneficial to the practice.
