Veterinary Surgeon

Milan Veterinary Clinic, Douglas
Permanent, Full time

Posted on 18/06/2021

About Us

Milan Veterinary Practice is a well-established, mixed practice with 3 branches on the Isle of Man. Our main clinic is in Douglas, with branches in Castletown and Peel. We currently have 8 vets working here, and we have an excellent team of nurses and reception staff to help support us. As we are a mixed practice we have a range of skills, some of us are true mixed vets, others are 100% small animal. We have in house Idexx lab equipment, ultrasound and digital x-ray. 

The Isle of Man is a unique place and has lots to offer whatever your interests. There is plenty to see and do, from mountain biking and coastal walks, to lots of restaurants and pubs, a food & drink festival, agricultural shows and of course, the famous TT races.

The maximum rate of taxation is 20%, much lower than in the UK, and the IOM Government is currently offering a National Insurance Holiday for the first year of employment here.

Immigration arrangements on the Isle of Man are also different to other parts of the UK, which allow you to move here more quickly and at less expense.

We spend a lot of time working together and we endeavour to support one another. We also meet up outside of work for dog walks, meals and nights out!’

Applicant Requirements

As we focus on treating all patients in-house, without referring, you must be capable of all routine surgery, as well as advanced abdominal surgery and other soft tissue surgeries. Skills in medicine cases and ultrasound scanning would also be favourable.

An interest in teaching/leading junior vets would also be highly advantageous. You must be confident with sole charge and out of hours work as we provide our own on call to our clients. A valid UK driving license and RCVS membership are essential.
