Job Description

Are you looking to work somewhere with varied, interesting cases as part of a great team and in a fantastic location? We are looking for a vet to join us here at our 24-hour hospital.

We are lucky enough to have a brilliant team of vets with a variety of interests including surgery and medicine and sharing experience is at the heart of what we are about. The veterinary day team is ordinarily comprised of 5 vets, but we are looking to recruit for 6. We are also fortunate enough to be supported by a wonderful team of nurses, of whom many of the RVNs have finished or are carrying out certificates such as in anaesthesia and analgesia or medical and surgical nursing.

A full-time applicant would work a 39-hour week which equates to 4 full days a week and 1 in 6 weekends, but our night service is run by a separate team of dedicated vets and nurses. Bank Holiday work is shared throughout all vets in the region as well as the vets at the hospital. We see transferred patients for imaging, medicine, cardiology, and surgery as well as first opinion work. CPD and studies including undertaking certificates are encouraged and CPD allowance is accordingly flexible.

Our facilities include a CT scanner, visiting MRI, a range of rigid and flexible endoscopes, a 2022 purchased ultrasound scanner, digital radiography, incoming dental radiography, as well as multiparameter GA monitoring, electrocautery, tonometry, and hydrotherapy. Our in-house lab includes biochemistry and haematology, clotting times, blood gas analysis and lactate monitoring. We have an in-house microscope and an Imagist which enables us access to specialist analysis of cytology or faecal analysis within an hour. The hydrotherapy is run by a chartered physiotherapist, and we are visited by a roving sonographer who can provide Advanced Practitioner level cardiology scanning. We are also periodically visited by a specialist surgeon.

For those not local to the area, Shrewsbury and Shropshire are responsible for ‘capturing’ many vets who moved location for a job and never left! Shrewsbury is a historic, bustling market town with Tudor architecture whilst the Shropshire countryside is beautiful and a stone’s throw from Wales and under two hours’ drive from the Welsh Coast.

We can offer relocation allowances should you move more than 40 miles from your current home address. We can also support Certificates of Sponsorship for a Tier 2 (General) Visa if you meet the criteria.
