Package up to £57,000 DOE pro rata

Make a difference and save lives with Sunday and bank holiday shifts only

Working part time offers a solution that overcomes the usual challenges of being an out-of-hours vet surgeon. Our part time vets can balance a career with caring for a family, working around another job or studying for an emergency and critical care certification.

Supportive team

Colchester is a busy clinic and this role presents an ideal opportunity for someone looking to step into an ECC career knowing they will have the support of another vet working alongside them (not sole charge). This is a great way to learn from our experienced veterinary professionals.

Flexible hours

We are looking for registered veterinary surgeons to relish the diverse caseload that ECC naturally brings on a Sunday and bank holidays only. Flexibility is key with this role and we will work shift frequency around the ideal candidate. The rota pattern can vary between working every Sunday, alternate Sundays or two out of three Sundays, and will include bank holidays. A variety of shifts are available and will range from 0800 to 2200.

Career development

People are at the heart of what we do, that’s why we take a pioneering approach to people development. We have cemented our commitment to continuous development by heavily investing in CPD, ECC certification and coaching to give our staff the springboard they need to take their career to the next level.
