The Role 

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Veterinary Surgeon to join our team here at Ivybank Vets! First- opinion GP role with mix of medical and surgical cases and time to work-up your cases. OOH is covered by our local Vets Now to give a good work-life balance.

About Us 

Well established 3 branch practice with bonded client base. Very friendly sociable, stable team, including an experienced nursing team to support you. Well-equipped for GP caseload (laboratory, digital x-ray, dental x-ray, ultrasound, dental equipment, MPMs etc). Ayrshire has great beaches and lovely countryside with excellent access to the facilities of Glasgow or the outdoor pursuits of Arran.

7-vet team of experienced GPs, 7-nurse, 2 ACAs plus reception/ support staff. Our clients and the health of their pets are our focus and we enjoy a friendly supportive team atmosphere with a reputation for dedication and high standards. Although COVID has cramped our style we are also well known for enjoying social events.

The Candidate

We are looking for someone who enjoys first opinion general practice but would be happy to encourage a candidate with a suitable interest. Development and training is supported and encouraged.
