Veterinary Surgeon

Veterinary Surgeon Ashton-under-Lyne, Greater Manchester Medivet 24 Hour Ashton Part Time, Permanent

The role

Calling all night owls!

We are very excited to announce that following professional feedback and an evaluation of our needs we are looking to expand our Manchester out-of-hours team based at one of our 24-hour centres (Medivet Ashton 24hr) in this region. This role has been designed from the ground up to offer a flexible, well remunerated package ideal for a prospective night vet looking to make the most of a family friendly work-life balance.

We are looking to recruit a motivated, enthusiastic night vet working on an annualised rota of 3 nights on followed by 25 nights off. The other 25 nights are already covered with experienced vets.

This role involves sole charge work working exclusively nights and will be suited for someone who ideally has at least 2 years of in-practice experience. Experience working OOH is also obviously desirable! Our day teams appreciate good communication and handover skills to ensure your patients are receiving the best quality care after you’ve left the building. It goes without saying that we are looking for caring, committed professionals who take pride in providing exceptional care to our clients – taking your pets to an emergency appointment is scary, and a calm, reassuring manner goes a long way!

This role is intended to be flexible enough to let you maintain a steady working pattern with the option to develop further.

Salary and Benefits

  • Competitive salary
  • CPD Allowance 
  • RCVS, BVA and VDS fees paid
  • Support for certificate work if desired

Please do not hesitate to email for further enquiries.


Ashton 24hr is a 5-6 vet practice with plans to grow in the future and is supported by an experienced and capable team with strong links to neighbouring in-region referral units meaning that your cases will be well looked after following the end of your shifts. For support during your night shifts you will have the assistance of an experienced night RVN as well as a twilight PCA for the busier early parts of your shift.


Ashton 24 Hour is a lovely site located on the eastern side of Manchester in Mossley. The practice is very well equipped with all usual mod cons (digital x-ray, ultrasound, flexible and rigid endoscopy, video otoscopy, full in-house labs, etc).
