Veterinary Surgeon (Medicine) – Wanstead Veterinary Hospital, East London

Our fantastic colleague Ryan is heading back to Australia, so we’re now on the lookout for a veterinary surgeon with a strong interest in small animal medicine to join the friendly team at our RCVS accredited veterinary hospital in Wanstead, East London.

We provide an excellent first opinion, emergency, critical care, and referral service to our clients and local network of 20 branches and work to the highest clinical standards. As a result, the successful candidate will have the opportunity to treat a wide range of patients and conditions. There is great diagnostic support with a new CT scanner, a diploma holder in imaging providing our CT and ultrasound service, a commercial laboratory, a strong medical team, and experienced surgeons routinely conducting advanced orthopaedic, soft tissue, and minimally invasive surgery all available on site.

The position would be most suitable for an experienced medic who enjoys the challenge of complex medical cases but is also confident in performing all aspects of 1st opinion veterinary medicine. A medicine certificate holder or someone nearing completion of their certificate would be ideal. The successful candidate will be capable of mature decision making whilst working in a busy hospital environment and will share our philosophy of practicing to the highest clinical standards and providing excellent client care. You would have the opportunity to work alongside other Certificate holders and Diplomates in a range of specialisms. There would be minimal OOH duties and no night work.

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 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 generous shopping & leisure discounts and our employee assistance programme. We may also be able to assist with accommodation if needed.

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 as our numerous 4 and 5-star employee reviews on Indeed!

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.
