My client is looking for a small animal vet to join their first opinion four vet practice in Leicestershire.
Teamwork is an essential skill here along with communication because they divide their time between two branches - they all like to make life as easy as possible because veterinary medicine is complicated enough as it is.
The nurses are supportive, knowledgeable and approachable, generally keeping the vets in line. The vets themselves have good grounding in general practice and broad experience, good client relations tend to come easy, they have a big range of clientele and adaptability is key.
They have the usual items needed for a practice to run - digital radiography, ultrasound, endoscopy as well as all the fiddly bits like otoscopes, opthalmoscopes, a tonopen and in house lab diagnostics. The rota is definitely survivable - 4.5 day week (three long days, a short day and a half day) with one in four Saturdays and their OOH is covered by Vets Now. There is flexibility week to week and they like to try and fit around any extracurricular activities you may have where possible.
A recent reshuffle due to retirement means they are needing someone keen, motivated and friendly to join the team. They are looking for a full time Vet, however, they would consider part time positions or the right new graduate.
