This role is full time, permanent, with a 4-day week and 1 in 5 weekends (full days).  You will have the opportunity for flexibility in your hours and will have no sole working.  You will be based in a busy, first opinion hospital in the Greater Manchester area, where you will be joining a strong team of experienced veterinary surgeons and have the backing of a caring and proactive nursing team.  As you will never work sole charge, you will always have the benefit of the team beside you for case discussions and support.
