Part Time Veterinary Surgeon Jobs – Southampton

Total package up to £60,000 DOE pro rata

Working weekends? Yes, but it’s still the best job in the industry

Let’s be honest, working as an out-of-hours emergency vet is challenging. With unsociable hours and a diverse range of cases, a career in emergency and critical care will test your clinical and surgical skills. Yet with unpredictability comes opportunity.

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 a 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. In our Southampton clinic, you will be fully supported by our Principal Vet Surgeon, expert nurses and the non-clinical team and won’t be required to work sole charge.

Great place to work

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 could include 6.6 weeks annual leave, pension contributions, professional membership, free holiday accommodation in Arran, 50% discounted staff pet care, death in service of two times annual salary, membership of employee wellbeing programme, company sick pay scheme, company maternity, paternity and adoption pay scheme and 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. 

Your Opportunity

Southampton is a busy and successful clinic, and deals with both private and PDSA clients. If you relish the diverse caseload that ECC naturally brings with the added support of another vet, we’d like to hear from you.

The hours we have available would sit perfectly with another job. The rota pattern will include working a share of weekend days and a share of bank holidays on a rolling rota basis. We are open to discuss different rota patterns for the right candidate.
