Embark on a fulfilling journey with our client’s prestigious veterinary practice with over a century of dedication to excellence in animal care. Located in the heart of Cambridgeshire, the practice is seeking a Veterinary Surgeon to become an integral part of their compassionate and skilled team. This is a chance to contribute to work within a supportive environment that places an equally high value on work-life balance and professional growth.

The practice itself boasts state-of-the-art facilities, including a newly unveiled wing with advanced operating theatres and a serene cat ward. The practice is equipped with cutting-edge diagnostic tools such as digital radiography, ultrasound with cardiac probe and doppler, video-endoscopy, and multi-parameter anaesthetic monitoring. They also have a bespoke rehabilitation centre on site featuring hydrotherapy and K-Laser, which is managed by adept physiotherapists, enhancing the comprehensive care provided.

The role offers a four-day workweek working nine-hour shifts, ensuring ample time for personal pursuits.

The practice team is not just a workforce but a family, with many long-standing members. The practice values wellbeing and enjoys community engagement through local events and charity fundraisers. Social gatherings, from summer festivities to the renowned Christmas party, are a testament to the vibrant culture cultivated within.
