We’re currently looking for a Veterinary Surgeon to come and join our friendly and supportive team. We would also consider long-term locum positions on a zero-hours contract.

We are proud that we’ve created a family within our team, with regular work gatherings – the occasional pizza lunch, and the best Christmas party for miles! We’re encouraging and supportive of our colleagues, developing their careers and knowledge, and we’re a training centre for nurses, too. We currently have some well-established Vets, including a surgical certificate holder, and we would encourage any members of the team to take on their chosen certificate.

We are located in Clacton-on-Sea, an Essex coastal town, with just a 90-minute commute to the vibrant city of London. For the right person, we can offer very comfortable accommodation with sea views and a vehicle, if required. We have great ties to our communities, who help to make this a very special place to work.

We have a well-equipped, well-established practice, with another small branch 20 minutes away. Our practice is equipped with digital x-ray, ultrasound (at both sites), large operating facilities, and separate, large, cat and dog wards. We have an excellent team with 5 Vets, RVNs, and practice support employees. Our RVNs run regular nurse clinics and assist the Vets with Schedule 3 procedures.

Working Pattern:

  • 4/5-day week, and we are open to other flexible working patterns.
  • 1 in 3 Saturdays, closing at 12.30pm.
  • No OOH.

What We Are Offering:

  • An appealing salary in order to reflect your skills (£40-£55k).
  • A generous CPD allowance to enable you to advance in a subject of your choice.
  • Health Shield Cash Plan.
  • Cycle to work scheme.
  • RCVS/VDS fees paid.
  • 25 days holidays, plus Bank Holidays.
