VA157 – Full time Medic / ECC Veterinary Surgeon – Wanstead Hospital

Exciting times — be part of the change! We are looking for someone with an interest in both ECC and medicine who can augment our fabulous team. We are ideally looking for someone with either a medicine or ECC Certificate who wants to work in a busy hospital with a large and complex case load. The shift pattern is made up of 9am-7pm and 
12pm-10pm shifts, so you will have the opportunity to work with both our day and dedicated night team. The hospital sees an incredibly interesting and varied caseload; no day is the same. It’s a great environment and you will be part of our talented team of certificate holders and specialists. 

We’re here for all patients – Wanstead Veterinary Hospital provides an excellent first opinion, emergency, critical care, and referral service to our clients and local network of 20 branches and works to the highest clinical standards.
We’re proud of our state-of-the-art equipment — there is great diagnostic support, with a new CT scanner, a commercial laboratory, a strong medical team, and experienced surgeons routinely conducting advanced orthopaedic,soft tissue, and minimally invasive surgery all available on site.

We’re all about the team – the successful candidate will be a strong team player looking to expand their experience in a busy hospital environment and will share our philosophy of practicing to the highest clinical standards and providing excellent client care. You will have the opportunity to work alongside Certificate holders and Diplomates in a range of specialisms. 

We’ll look after you – there is a competitive salary which takes into account the late finishes. Our CPD allowance is generous with 5 days paid CPD per year (pro-rata for part-time roles). We see CPD as an investment in the individual as well as for the practice and are keen to support study for certificate qualifications. 

We have a great benefits package including: 
– Increasing holiday allowance (after working with us for 4 years you’ll have 6 weeks holiday plus bank holidays).
– BUPA private health insurance.
– Simply Health, which provides cashback/refunds on many routine medical costs such as dental care, physiotherapy, optician, chiropractic fees, and more.
– 24hr Employee Assistance Programme.
– Generous shopping/leisure discounts (never pay full price in all the major shops and cinemas again!)
– Up to £3000 relocation costs paid. 
– Cycle to work scheme.
– Great colleague pet discount scheme. 
– Membership Scheme Allowance up to £350 per annum. 
– Colleague Introduction incentive of £2500.

Wanstead offers a beautiful high street with a range of pubs, restaurants, and shops all within a short walking distance of the practice. Central London, Westfield, and Stratford are all easily accessible via the Central Line. Equally the countryside is easily accessible with Epping Forest on our doorstep.

In 2022 we are celebrating our 70th anniversary and have 44 branches, 3 hospitals and our own nurse training college. We value all of our colleagues and our forward-looking approach means we have introduced a Colleague Forum to listen to our peers’ views, as well as monthly Town Hall meetings, communicating real time updates, taking polls with live Q&A’s to ensure we’re making the right, collaborative decisions for our people. All our senior managers are Mental Health First Aid trained and we offer Wellness plans for all our new starters.
