The Role

We are looking for an Experienced Veterinary Surgeon to cover our new role of Out of Hours Nights Weekends & some Saturday mornings. This is a new opportunity looking to attract those vets who are potentially looking for something a little different. We are open to discussing this in more depth with potential applicants and hope that it may be of interest to someone looking to work OOH only.

We are a purpose built, small animal practice based in the centre of Yeovil, looking to expand due to demand in clients. Our friendly and supportive team consists of 3 full time Vets, 1 Head nurse, 1 full time Nurse and 1 part time nurse, 4 Reception staff and 1 cleaner. We have ample car parking for our team and clients plus there are 2 flats above the practice for overnight stay if required. We have excellent diagnostic equipment and good facilities. We are the only practice in a town able to offer laparoscopic spays and stem cell therapy for our patients. Our goal is to deliver excellent service for our clients and their pets. 

Applicant Requirements

We are seeking a Qualified Small Animal Veterinary Surgeon happy to take sole charge working nights either full or part time to support the practice in operating a 24 hour service.  We hope that this role may attract those looking to cover OOH only and in doing so, provide a more dynamic role for our current team.
