Part time Vet

Permanent Vet in South Yorkshire

01/07/2024 - OPEN
Part time Vet vacancy at an independent practice in Sheffield.

Competitive salary £40K-£69999.

2-3 days, no out-of-hours (unless you would like to) and one in two/three Saturday mornings sole charge. HOWEVER, for the right candidate, the role could be made full-time, in which case they will extend opening times in the evening to 7-8 o`clock and on Saturday until 4 in the afternoon.

The opening hours are Monday to Friday from 9am until 6pm with a dedicated lunch break and Saturday mornings 9am to 12pm.

The practice is an independent, family-run first opinion small animal practice on the edge of the Peak District.

They have a friendly and supportive team consisting of 4 vets, 4 nurses, 1 SVN alongside a reception team. They can call upon an external orthopaedic surgeon who operates on their cases, in-house. All vets have been with them since the beginning of their career and some even from before that, as work experience students.

As an independent practice, they embrace clinical freedom and encourage their team to pursue areas of interest rather than sales figure driven activities. They offer good clinical, diagnostic and treatment facilities including an in-house Idexx laboratory machine, digital radiography, ultrasonography, capnography and blood pressure monitoring and they do encourage you to work up your own cases but often discuss cases together too.

They are ideally looking for an enthusiastic, experienced vet, competent in all areas of surgery, however they are happy to consider candidates who are still building their skill set. An interest in small furries would be beneficial. Your work week will be a mix of surgical work in theatre, consults, case work up and client communication. They have 15-minute consults as standard but double time for complicated cases.

They also have a newly refurbished building 5 min walk up the road from the main practice, where they were looking to start a small furry/cat practcie or possibly a referral station which could be used by someone (looking to) specialise. But this is due to lack of vets not an option at present. Again the possibility is there.

OOH work is seen by an emergency clinic, however if the candidate is interested in emergency work and would like to take over the emergency work again in the future, they would be welcome to do so. And on days that they wish to have off, all they have to do is notify the emergency clinic and change the answerphone message ( no set fees etc charged by emergency clinic to them).

Benefits include No out-of-hours or bank holiday work (unless by own request), 5-week holiday entitlement plus bank holidays, Yearly pay review, Pension scheme, RCVS and VDS fees paid for.
