Our popular Uxbridge practice is going through an exciting time, giving us the opportunity to create a rota designed especially for the vet who would love a rewarding, satisfying career but also a home life too and a chance to take advantage of the wonderful city of London!

The role includes either a Monday or Friday off every week plus one early finish and one late start every week. Three of the days you will be working with a second vet but will be sole charge on the 4th day and on some Saturday mornings, however, you will be fully supported by our RCVS accredited Tier 3 hospital in Northolt. There is no overnight work. We would love you to support our hospital colleagues on a 1:8 Sunday daytime rota only and some Saturday afternoons between 2-5pm. The Mandeville hospital has fantastic facilities including a state-of-the-art CT, excellent ultrasound, scopes, an array of specialists and provides a great place to develop your ECC skills and experience a busy hospital environment.

Veterinary Surgeons (Float) – Greater London, flexible role

See the job vacancy page here

Love the variety and flexibility of locuming but not the paperwork or lack of benefits? We have the perfect role for you in our forward-thinking independent family-run veterinary practice. We are looking for experienced veterinary surgeons to join our team and float in either West London, East London, or SW London. We don’t expect people to cover huge areas, and you will work closely with the locum coordinator teams to work out which clinics are accessible to you.

This is a very flexible position and would suit full or part-time work and allows much more flexibility than a set clinic role. For example, we have had vets who have combined the float role with volunteering abroad. We’re happy to talk to you about rotas that would work for your individual needs. This is also a role that could also work as a short-term contract, allowing you to use London as a base when travel reopens and combine other interests.

The role allows you to experience different environments from RCVS accredited hospitals with an array of specialists to multi vet and small sole charge clinics. So why join the team instead of locuming? We can provide job security, a regular fixed monthly income which can be supplemented if you would like to do extra shifts; fantastic hospital experience and you can plan your weekends well in advance. No filling in tax returns and you don’t have to worry about IR35 or having to set up a limited or an umbrella company.

There is a competitive salary, dependent on experience. In addition, we offer a £2000 and 5-day CPD allowance. We see CPD as an investment in the individual and the practice and is 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!)
  • Cycle to work scheme
  • Great colleague pet discount scheme
  • Membership Scheme Allowance up to £350 per annum
  • Colleague Introduction incentive of £1500
  • Accommodation is available if needed in some of our regions

If you enjoy variety in your role, this two-clinic role could be ideal for you! Working four days a week, you divide your time between our Putney and Fulham practices.

There is no night work or on-call.

It would be great to find a colleague who fits into our practice culture and values: putting pets and their owners at the heart of every decision. Someone who enjoys being a great GP supported by fantastic colleagues, but also relishes having a satisfying life outside of work, enjoying the West London riverside lifestyle, or the hustle and bustle of fantastic shopping and dining venues nearby.

Salary is in the region of £45,000 – £60,000 depending on experience (pro-rata for part-time roles) and we have a great benefits package including:

  • £2000 allowance and 5 days CPD annually.

Supportive employer
I enjoyed working for Goddards for 6 years and am sad to have to leave due to relocation. I liked working with the supportive team, lovely clients, and interesting and varied case load. Management were accommodating to my flexible working request. Good back up to branches from 24-hour hospital so I never felt isolated knowing that friendly help and advice was only a phone-call or email away. Excellent CPD and benefits package.

Great company to work for
I have worked for the company for 5 years and they are great for supporting career progression. The standards of practice are very high and the caseload is great.

Supportive team, great work/life balance
I have been working at Goddard Veterinary Group full-time for more than a year. Pros: There is a great supportive nature throughout the company, allowing us to grow and achieve things professionally and personally. Cons: Wish I had joined them sooner!

Fantastic Company to work for
Friendly, supportive, flexible, Goddards have always been there for me to celebrate the good times (qualifying as a Veterinary Nurse which they put me through my training for) and supporting/listening to me through the difficult times (whether personal or work related). Extensive, up to date equipment to provide gold standard care for all animals and a very well put together team of Vets, Nurses and VCA's to care for the animals. Everyone works as a team, everyone has a voice and can help make changes/improvements if required. I have never felt so at home whilst at work. I have not closed the door to Goddards, for now, I need to change jobs for my own reasons, I hope to be back to Goddards one day. Fair pay, flexible hours (always consider individuals needs) and everyone treated as an equal. Good holiday, great benefits scheme, provide training and good CPD allowance.

Fantastic supportive practice
I worked at Goddard Veterinary Group full-time for more than a year Pros: Whilst I have worked for many of the groups/independent practices in and around Essex/London, I have never worked with a practice of such high standard. Goddard pride themselves in 5 star care and I can say that every patient that was cared for whilst I was working with them got that care. The standards and protocols are great, each branch works between themselves, but still lives up to the high standard. The practices are very busy and have a varied caseload. The vets that I worked with were super supportive - they listen and value your opinion. Everyone I met was welcoming and lovely. I hope to return soon (I added a human baby to my fur baby gang.) Keep up the good work guys! Cons: Non that I can think of.
