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).

  • Great colleague pet discount scheme
  • Membership Scheme Allowance up to £350 per annum
  • Colleague Introduction incentive of £1500

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.
Former Employee - Nov 2020

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!
Current Employee - Nov 2020

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.
Former Employee - Dec 2020
*Credit Indeed
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.
