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 staffing levels to try and ensure a sensible workload. We have a bustling and friendly work place with a fantastic team attitude that we endeavour to prioritise.
We have a small animal position available, with no mandatory out of hours work but some daytime weekend work on a rota basis (1 in 5). The weekend days are compensated with 2 rota’d days off in the following week.
Working hours and workload balance are negotiable. Overnight on site small animal work will become available in the near future if anyone was looking to incorporate this into their working rota or work just nights but will not be mandatory.https://www.minstervet.com/nightvets
We have a great mix of experience with certificate holders, vets currently studying for certificates and several of us with 8-15 years experience who are happy with the shorter titles! We also have a very enthusiastic mixed team who cover the on call work currently with plans of 24 hour vet care at the Newark practice in the immediate future.
We are ideally looking for a candidate who can stand on their own two feet but no specific need for sole charge at a surgical site. We are also in a position to offer new or recent graduates a supportive start to their career whether this is small only or mixed.
As you should expect from any good employer we are looking for people to fit in to a friendly and helpful team dynamic, who can be an asset to the practice while progressing both personally and professionally while enjoying a team atmosphere.
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.
As a practice we like to be progressive in our approach to diagnostics and as such have a very good range of diagnostic equipment with an appetite for investing in equipment that will be utilised.
For the small animal side we have; digital x-ray with dental xray, digital endoscope/rhinoscope, ultrasound, ECG, suction, multiparameter monitors and recently upgraded Idexx lab equipment at all branches alongside an in house microbiology lab run through Southwell. We can perform in house orthopaedics including TPLO, have an in house cardiologist and a part time ophthalmologist and many other fantastic vets!
We currently cover all of our own out of hours work which is staffed by the mixed vets within the practice but intend to change this to 24 on site care in the immediate future, there is no mandatory uptake of this work. We run extended weekend consulting hours from our Newark branch on a 1 in 5 rota of small animal vets working together to cover the work required, but no routine surgery. We reward all weekend work with time off in the following week.
We encourage relevant CPD with a focus on areas of personal improvement and interest. We have a standard 5 days of CPD allowance and study for certificates is welcomed and funded as part of your CPD allowance.
We have retuned to booking optional CPD evenings at local pubs with great food to keep you up to date with new products, the days of trying to squeeze in lunch and learns are gone!
Generous package based on experience and role can include; house, car, phones, broadband, society membership and VDS cover.
