We are seeking a surgeon who has either completed a Surgery Certificate or is close to completing one, to take on a predominantly surgical role and operate at both at our Stone Lion and Mandeville Veterinary Hospitals. Both hospitals are busy RCVS accredited first-opinion centres, offering a 24 -hour service to their own clients, in addition to offering internal referral surgical support to the practice’s nearby branch surgeries. These hospitals are also able to offer the services of RCVS Specialists in Ophthalmology Imaging, Dermatology and Advanced Pet Dentistry. Both hospitals are well staffed with RVNs and CPD is encouraged and supported for all members of the team. Many of our nurses have either completed certificates or are working towards them. We successfully foster a friendly atmosphere in the group with which our newly recruited staff are always impressed.
We would welcome a colleague to join the team who wishes to utilise and further develop their surgical skills. The Mandeville Hospital has recently installed a CT scanner and in both hospitals an interesting and busy caseload is guaranteed. Our ideal candidate would be competent in both soft tissue and orthopaedic procedures, including the ability to perform fracture repairs and TPLO’s. No night work or on call is required.
In return we can offer an excellent and competitive salary including 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 benefit package including increasing holiday allowance (up to 6 weeks!), BUPA private health insurance as well as cash back / refunds on many routine medical costs such as dental care, physiotherapy, optician, chiropody fees etc, plus generous shopping and leisure discounts.
