If you are a veterinary surgeon looking for an exciting new role in Essex, close enough to nip into London or quickly drive out to the gorgeous east coast for a walk and have the flexibility in your working pattern to allows this, we have the perfect opportunity for you!

Our clients are a friendly Independent practice based in the north east of Essex, near the Essex/Suffolk border and just a short train ride from London city centre.  They are currently looking for a small animal vet to join their talented and supportive team.

This role is full-time, permanent, working 40 hours per week spread over a 4-day week, with 1 in 3 Saturday mornings (9am-12pm).  There are no out-of-hours as our clients practice work with and host an external OOH provider.  This means in-patients are taken care of on-site by the out of hours team, allowing for continued care of your patients/clients with minimal disruption and full transparency if they do need treatment out of hours.  The practice also has a flexible approach to the rota so can work with you to find the best rota pattern and keep that work life balance right.

The role offers a varied small animal caseload with some exotics and a mixture of consulting and operating, with every vet given a dedicated operating day each week.  If, however you prefer not to operate or are simply passionate about consultations and vet/client relations, a consult-only role would be considered.  

In taking on this role you would be joining a clinical team of 7 vets and 12 nurses, with strengths in surgery, cardiology, ultrasonography and exotics and as an additional benefit for your patients the practice has its own veterinary physiotherapist onsite.  The practice itself is well-established with excellent facilities including a surgical theatre, prep area, dental suite, x-ray room, flexible endoscopes, digital tonometer, class 4 laser and echocardiograph on top of the usual essentials.

You will find free parking onsite at the practice and bus stops just a few minute’s walk from the front door going in both directions for easy commuting too and from work.  The nearest train station is just under 30 minutes drive or bus journey south and provides a direct link into London city centre and London Stanstead airport for travel further afield.

Competitive salary of £32,000 to £65,000 depending on experience
Annual holiday of 25 days plus bank holidays
Annual CPD allowance, plus 5 days paid CPD leave and certificates encouraged and funded
No out-of-hours (host practice for an external OOH provider so our in-patients are taken care of on-site).
Private medical insurance
Professional membership fees paid
VISA sponsorship available for overseas candidates
