Posted on 29/06/2021

The Role 

Here at Darley House we have a fantastic opportunity for a Veterinary Surgeon to join our wonderful team. We value a pleasant working environment as much as clinical expertise. 

We now have the opportunity to expand to 4 Vets.

The rota: 
• We are open to full and part time applications 
• Full time roles are 4 day per week
• One in 4 Saturday mornings finishing at midday
• We use a dedicated out of hours service so there are no OOH duties 
• We do not work on Sundays or Bank Holidays
• When working each vet has a nurse partner so they work as a team     

About us 

Here at Darley House Vets our reputation is as a friendly and competent practice that has been in Farnworth for 70 years. We have many longstanding clients (and team members). We emphasis a pleasant working environment for both employees and clients . We have good facilities including an in house lab, a very good ultrasound machine with colour doppler , digital radiography etc. 
We are currently a team of 3 vets but are expanding to 4. We have 5 RVNs and a dedicated receptionist team.          
We have no specialists but there are many locally and we refer cases when appropriate. Many of our staff have been with us for many years.

Applicant Requirements 

We are looking for someone who will continue making the practice a pleasant working environment and this is just as important to us as clinical skills. If a new vet develops a particular interest that would be encouraged and we would support specialised CPD but there is no pressure to specialise.
