Looking for a better work-life balance? We’ve created a job-share role at our practice in Brixton, London for just that reason. We now have a great part-time role for an experienced veterinary surgeon, someone who would like to play an important part in a small team, growing this lovely clinic, and moving it into its next exciting phase with an established existing vet within the Goddard group.
Our Brixton clinic has a welcoming, friendly atmosphere, and a very loyal client base. It’s also in a vibrant and lively area with fantastic transport links, with easy access to Central London and green spaces.
The role is for two days a week (either Monday and Tuesday or Thursday and Friday) plus 1:4 Saturdays, but this could also be combined with a 3rd day on a Wednesday at our neighbouring Stockwell practice if you were looking for a 3-day role.
Our ideal candidate is a confident and accomplished veterinary surgeon with great people skills, with at least two years’ experience, and has a great track record of fostering strong relationships with their clients; someone who can fit into our practice culture and values and just enjoy being a great GP; someone who can manage their time, prioritise well and just enjoy getting the job done, but also relish having a life outside of work. The role is sole charge but is part of a local supportive network at Stockwell and Kennington but is also fully supported by our hospital in Wimbledon and we use an animal ambulance service to transport critical cases.
The salary is in the region of £50k-60k (pro-rata, as it’s a part-time role) and there is a generous CPD allowance. The Goddard Veterinary Group sees CPD as an investment in the individual, as well as for the practice, and is keen to support study for certificate qualifications. We have an excellent benefits package including increasing holiday allowance (up to 6 weeks!), BUPA private health insurance as well as cashback/refunds on many routine medical costs such as dental care, physiotherapy, optician, chiropody fees, etc. plus a 24/7 employee assistance programme, generous shopping, and leisure discounts and a cycle to work scheme.
Goddard Veterinary Group is a family-run practice and was started in 1952 by Arthur Goddard. His son Philip took over the reins in the late ’90s and remains the practice principal. We are now the largest family-run veterinary practice in the UK and have 44 branches, 3 hospitals, and our own nursing college. We have a great reputation for looking after our staff; over 20% of our team have been with us 10 years or more and please take a few minutes to look at our numerous 4 and 5-star employee reviews on Indeed!
