A wonderful opportunity has arisen for a Veterinary Surgeon to join a well-established, multi-site, primary care and mid-tier referral practice in the historical city of Leicester. The practices are RCVS accredited and are all self-sufficient and fully-equipped.

You will be joining a friendly and enthusiastic, large team of vets across the sites. There is also an experienced nursing team (including two surgical diploma holders) & a wonderful client care team.

This role involves a predominantly clinical focus with operating and consulting at one of their branches. As the lead of the site, you will be responsible for the line management of the vet team, coaching and mentoring, rota management and involved in business plans to further their success.
They are keen to support certificates where they can for personal and business development. They also understand the need to be flexible with working hours, and are open to discussing the ideal role for you. They welcome full and part-time applications.

The team enjoys socialising events outside of work when possible. It is fair to say that they all get on well as a team and enjoy their working days together. They have a real team spirit, and any new associates will be warmly welcomed.

The practices are well equipped with digital x-ray, quality ultrasound, dental equipment, in house labs, dedicated operating theatres, and carry out all standard primary care procedures daily.

The Tier 3 RCVS-accredited Hospital has all this plus; CT machine, video endoscopy, ASIF kit, TPLO/TTA/Tightrope, arthroscopy, Phacoemulsification and advanced ophthalmology equipment, dedicated 24 hour nursing and vet teams, and much more.
