We are a privately owned, client friendly mixed practice in Nottinghamshire with 3 fully functioning surgeries and two branch practices.
We require an additional vet for our mixed team due to expansion of the team and to allow a better work life balance.
The position would be suitable for any mixed vet with experience however recent graduates would be considered. The position can have a bias to a single discipline but the paired, mixed on call is non-negotiable.
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 alongside a newly developed in house microbiology lab.
For the large animal side we have ultrasound for both farm and equine, mobile digital x-ray, hand and power tools for dentals as well as a very nice equine endoscope, gastroscope and dental scope. We have in house biochemistry and haematology for horses, microbiology with some PM facility and daily collections for all other large animal lab samples.
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.
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 currently cover all of our own out of hours work, the on call is currently paired to cover both small and large animal calls. The pairings are set to balance experience and interest so could easily include a vet with a weighted interest.
The current rota is 1 in 6 with an additional 1 in 12 Saturday mornings. Additional consulting hours are run from our Newark branch over the weekend to help reduce the out of hours work load, this is run on a separate rota of small animal vets.
We currently give a day and a half off after a weekend on call, the Wednesday before a Saturday morning session and every 12th Thursday off to try to keep a work life balance, with this new position we will be able to increase the time off after a weekend. We plan to give almost 3 days off following the weekend (pop in Monday morning to hand over with the aim of finishing by 10.30am with Tuesday and Wednesday off) and change the day off for the 1 in 12 Saturday morning to be the Friday after that weekend, giving 1 in 12 long weekends.
We also arrange multiple 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 and can include; house, car, phones, broadband, society membership and VDS cover.
