Job opportunity for Veterinary Surgeon

Join our experienced medical team in Dundee

100% small animal practice

New graduate friendly

CPD funded

Join our friendly, family-run, 100% small animal practice. We are looking for an enthusiastic full-time veterinary surgeon who relates well with clients and pets. As a training practice we are always looking for dynamic individuals while encouraging all staff to develop and follow the latest changes in skills and techniques.

We currently have 2 vets but are looking to expand to three vets to provide the best service for our growing client base. Our vets are well supported by one full-time veterinary nurse, 2 part-time veterinary nurses and one full-time animal care assistant as well as full and part-time receptionists.

We are a well-equipped general practice, with digital radiography, ultra-sound and new in-house biochemistry and haematology analysers. Duties would include both consultations and surgery with some out of hours work. Due to sharing on-call cover with another local practice the OOH rota will be 1 in 6, equally shared between our three vets with nursing support available when required. Time off will also be equally shared between the three vets equating to an average working week of just over 4 days. In addition to this we offer a full 5 weeks annual leave plus 4 days public holidays.

The practice is situated in the university city of Dundee, on the east coast of Scotland and close to the lovely countryside of Angus and the hills of the Angus Glens; an ideal place for someone who likes the outdoors, with activities such as walking, hillwalking, mountaineering, skiing, fishing, cycling, water sports and wildlife interests all within easy reach. Golfing is also well provided for, with St Andrews and Carnoustie being very close by and Edinburgh about an hour away by car.

We enjoy excellent working relationships between all staff with help and support always on hand. We pride ourselves on the trust placed in our practice by our customers and always strive to maintain and enhance this relationship.
