Weekend Day Vet Surgeon

Highly competitive salary and benefits package.

Work only 2 weekend shifts a month with no night shift? At Vets Now Gillingham you can.

Working as an out-of-hours Vet Surgeon isn’t for the faint hearted. The unpredictable caseload is diverse and the unsocial hours can be challenging. Yet, Vets Now Gillingham are offering new, sustainable and unique rota patterns with weekend day work only. You can work only 2 weekends a month, no night shifts and only 4 bank holiday shifts per year. Meaning you can enjoy the thrill of ECC without working the 15 hour night shifts.

What's in it for you?

Recognising hard work is really important to us. Our employees are our greatest asset which is why we offer a first class benefits and rewards package that includes:

  • 6.6 weeks annual leave pro rata
  • Pension contributions
  • Professional membership fee's
  • Free holiday accommodation in Arran
  • 50% discounted staff pet care plan
  • Death in service of twice your annual salary
  • Membership of employee wellbeing programme
  • Company sick pay scheme
  • Company maternity, paternity and adoption pay scheme
  • Your birthday as a day off

As well as providing a competitive package of rewards and benefits, we also take pride in celebrating our successes. This includes hosting an annual awards ceremony for those who have exceeded expectations. Clinical staff are also encouraged to attend our annual ECC Congress, the largest in the UK, which features an array of internationally accredited speakers, delegates and exhibitors.  

People are our core.

Working part time offers a solution that overcomes the usual challenges of being an out-of-hours clinician. Our Vets can balance a career with caring for a family, studying for an ECC certification or training for a marathon! We are a special breed at Vets Now and our people will always decide how our company develops and what path we take. We are open to discussing different rota patterns for the right candidate.

Diverse and exciting caseload.

So let’s review…part time hours, no nightshifts, long breaks between shifts, exciting caseload and working with the best and supportive clinicians in the industry.
