Vet Surgeon (Maternity Role from February 2022) – Highbury, North London

If you are looking for a new and fresh start in 2022, this maternity cover position in our Highbury branch of Goddard Vet Group could be your ideal role.

You will be joining our network of Central London first opinion branches which are currently experiencing an increased number of patients and a widening caseload. Investment plans are currently being finalised so exciting times are ahead at Highbury.

The role is 3 days per week with a 1 in 3 Saturday rota. There is no night work or on-call. To provide a mix between branch and hospital work, with a great way to experience ECC work, we would also like you to join the Sunday rota (1:8) at our RCVS accredited tier 3 hospital in Wanstead.  We understand the need for a genuine work-life balance, so although there would be the option to work the occasional additional hours if you wish to, this would be your choice to make.

You will be a vet who can manage your time and prioritise well. Confidence in routine surgery and working up medical cases will be your passion. Our ideal candidate will enjoy working as part of a team with another part-time vet to share the workload with and have a proven ability to communicate effectively with clients, putting their pet’s health at the centre of every decision.

We are looking for someone who can fit into our practice culture and values who enjoys being a great GP supported by fantastic colleagues, but due to location in a London ‘village’ environment with proximity to fashionable Islington and East London, also relishes having a satisfying life outside of work.

In return, we can offer a salary of £45,000 – £55,000 (pro-rata for part-time roles) depending on experience. The Goddard Veterinary Group offers a minimum of £2000 CPD allowance and sees CPD as an investment into 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 amongst other services, plus a 24/7 employee assistance programme, generous shopping, and leisure discounts and a cycle to work scheme.
