Veterinary Surgeon – Meridian Veterinary Practice – Peacehaven, East Sussex

Are you a small animal Veterinary Surgeon looking for the next stage in your career? Are you enthusiastic about your job, and give your all to each and every one of the pets in your care? If so, then we have the position for you!

We are currently looking for a full- or part-time experienced Veterinary Surgeon to join our friendly team, providing the best service to clients and their furry friends. We also understand the frustration that can arise from feeling like you’ve reached a stagnant point in your work position, which is why we’re happy to say that we have career progression opportunities to work toward becoming a Senior Vet, if desired.

We’re set in the town of Peacehaven, with its charming chalk cliffs and quaint local pubs, and only six miles away from Brighton city centre, giving you a range of things to do and explore in your downtime.

What we’re looking for:

  • A willingness to develop both clinical and non-clinical skills to enable delivery of superb patient care
  • The ability to effectively communicate with both colleagues and clients
  • Hold an appropriate Veterinary Surgeon qualification, and be currently registered with the RCVS

What does the rota look like?

The position is 3-4 days a week, with an excellent rota, including 1:4 Saturdays 8am-4pm, and no OOH, providing a great work-life balance.

What our team has to say:

Meridian is a fantastic team environment with incredible, supportive nurses. It is a corporate-owned practice but still maintains the feel and day-to-day running of a good community independent. It has all the fantastic benefits for an employee of the big corporates, yet somehow manages to retain the personal things that staff really appreciate. 

Oh, and we never miss cake on staff birthdays!  

–  Dr. K. Stafford BVMS MRCVS

Meridian is such a positive and warm environment; I’ve only been part of the team for 6 weeks so far, but the whole team have really taken me under their wing and made me feel welcome! The practice manager is very hands on and supportive to everyone in the team, which is very encouraging. The work-life balance is great, and I feel very valued here. Every individual truly cares about each patient and client that comes through the door, which is what I feel this industry is all about! I feel very proud to be part of Meridian; I can see myself being here for a really long time.

What we can offer in return:

  • Health Shield cash plan
  • Generous CPD allowance
  • RCVS and VDS fees covered, plus 2 other membership subscriptions
  • Company pension
  • 6.6 weeks holiday, including Bank Holidays, as well as the opportunity to buy and sell holiday
