The Role 
We are currently looking for an enthusiastic and adaptable veterinary surgeon to join our friendly team here at Strathspey Vets. We would require you to work with all species; our large animal work is majority beef cattle and sheep, and you will have regular consulting and operating sessions working with our small animal patients. The majority of our equine work is first opinion. As a member of our full-time veterinary team, you will be required to work a 1 in 4 on call rota – this includes one night a week and every fourth weekend. Generous time off is given following on-call shifts and you will always have a 4-day week plus time off in lieu following a weekend on call. There are always two vets on call which provides good support.  
About Us 
We are a truly mixed practice with a rough ratio of 60:40 small to large animal work and the occasional equine call. Located in the Cairngorm National Park, there is ample opportunity to enjoy the beautiful surroundings. Many of our staff pursue a wide range of outdoor activities including hiking, skiing, kayaking, and biking.  
We work across two modern practices and our small animal facilities are supported by an amazing team of RVNs, SVNs and VCAs. We have a wide range of experience within our clinical team, and everyone is confident in supporting each other.
