Principal Veterinary Surgeon Job – Colchester

Flexible benefits package up to £65,000 per annum

Strive to be the best and reach the top of the veterinary profession

Working unsocial hours isn’t for everyone. The caseload range is so diverse that it requires a special breed of vet to meet the demands of the role.

Delivering high standards

The Colchester veterinary team are motivated by driving clinical excellence and providing pet care at a time when it’s needed most. Being a vet surgeon will involve triage, emergency and lifesaving treatment. No two shifts will ever be the same.

Our Principal Vets are at the forefront of delivering that vision, leading from the front in creating a culture of continuous improvement and shaping the future of the veterinary profession. 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.

You’ll never be alone at Vets Now

Our supportive UK network of emergency clinics and specialty hospitals work in collaboration to ensure that we can offer the best emergency and critical care in the country. Whether it’s sharing best practice or seeking advice on a particularly complex case, you will never be alone at Vets Now.

We are looking for a MRCVS registered veterinary surgeon to relish the diverse caseload that ECC naturally brings, especially during busy nights and weekends.
