We are a fiercely independent, client friendly practice in Nottinghamshire with 4 fully functioning surgeries and two branch practices. We are continuing to expand our small animal staff levels this year to help manage an ever increasing work load across all sites. We would love a candidate who can hit the ground running, but we can comfortably accomodate a vet early in their career in need of guidance. the position can involve a mix of medicine and surgery or can be pure medicine focussed if preffered.
We intend to expand our Newark site into a full hospital in the next 9-12 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 yet 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 based from our Newark surgery, worked on a 1 in 5 rota with time back the following week. Small animal only out of hours work will become available over time but with no mandatory uptake, purely optional.
The position can be full or part time with the working week negotiable. The weekend consulting is staffed with a minimum of 2 small animal vets with back up from the on call staff when needed, but no routine surgery booked. This staffing level will increase as the team increases but we don’t intend to increase the weekend burden on each team member (unless desirable to that individual).
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 have prided ourselves on team ethic for a long time but working through covid has made us even more proud of the attitude and efforts throughout the practice, this is something we aim to prioritise as we continue to grow.
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 like to be progressive in our approach to medicine and as such have a very good range of diagnostic equipment and will continue invest in equipment that will be utilised and beneficial to the practice.
For the small animal side we have; digital x-ray with separate 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.
We encourage relevant CPD with a focus on areas of personal improvement and interest. CPD and study for certificates is welcomed and funded as part of your CPD allowance.
We also hope to get back to arranging optional cpd evenings at local pubs with great food to keep you up to date with new products, the days of squeezing in lunch and learns are gone!
Generous package based on experience.
We are also looking for a mixed vet as a seperate position.
