Veterinary Surgeon

Job title: Veterinary Surgeon Location: Liverpool, Merseyside Practice: Medivet 24 Hour Alder Hours: Full Time Contract type: Permanent

The Role

We're excited to announce that due to growth at our 24 hour centre in Manchester we are recruiting for a further veterinary surgeon to help meet our patient care needs.

Ashton has historically been a leader in practising minimally invasive surgical techniques which continues today. We are looking to build on the strong surgical foundations of this practice with the addition of another certificate holder - a Medicine or ECC certificate would be ideal but we would be interested in hearing from any candidates who would like to be part of a highly motivated team with clinical freedom to develop their own interest and provide a very high standard of care to pets in the Manchester area.

We offer a 4 day week, with no OOH and the option of either 1:3 Saturdays or 1:6 full weekends on site.

The site is supported by its own highly experienced OOH team who work closely with the day time to ensure good handover and excellent patient care.

We are committed to providing work life balance for the team and we would be happy to consider flexible working or school hours friendly working arrangements.

  • Salary up to £66,000 per annum dependent on experience
  • CPD allowance with 3 days paid CPD leave

  • Access to Wellbeing support and EAP programme
  • Access to wide range of discounts for days out, high street and holidays.
  • 100% attendance bonus schemes

We can offer relocation allowances should you move more than 40 miles from your current home address.

We can also support Certificates of Sponsorship for a Tier 2 (General) Visa if you meet the criteria and are eligible to register as a veterinary surgeon with the RCVS upon arrival in the UK.
