We are excited to be representing this client as they have a fantastic opportunity available in their independent veterinary hospital in Bedford.

They have been established for over 60 years and are very well known in this county town, with a loyal client base, providing 1st and 2nd opinion care to small animals and exotics. In addition to the hospital there are two satellite clinics, each a short drive from the main hospital site.

They are currently recruiting for a new graduate veterinary surgeon, or junior clinician to join their team of 12 veterinary surgeons, including Advanced Practitioners and certificate holders in cardio, imaging and medicine plus 15 veterinary nurses, and support staff. As you would expect from working in a hospital environment, there is an exciting caseload and an ability to work cases through as they provide their own OOH. They are very well equipped, as you would expect a modern purpose built hospital to be, with digital and dental x-ray, brand new and state of the art echo and ultrasound, endoscopy, separate wards for different species, isolation ward, in house laboratory and on site hydro/physio aquatic treadmill, just for starters!

For the junior clinicians they have a comprehensive graduate support programme with four of the senior vets appointed as VetGDP advisors. Mentoring, guidance and reassurance combined with a comprehensive induction assists all their new recruits with a seamless introduction to the team, and provides all the tools needed to give you the confidence in your ability and skills as a new graduate veterinary surgeon. You will gain invaluable experience in all the aspects of the job including ECC, medicine, diagnostics, surgery, client interaction and customer service, giving you the best first experience into the world of veterinary medicine!

Benefits include:

- Private Medical Insurance

This is a amazing opportunity for a new graduate or junior veterinary surgeon to gain more skills and confidence within such a supportive team and fantastic environment. They can offer sponsorship to overseas candidates and are in a enviable position of being an hour from central London on the train and half an hour from Luton airport. Stanstead, Gatwick and Heathrow airports within easy reach also.
