Veterinary Surgeon Job – Senior Veterinary Surgeon Job – Coventry

Total package up to £60,000 DOE

Working nights and 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. As a Senior Vet at Vets Now you will be exposed to cases you simply wouldn’t experience in general practice.

Are you ready to lead the next generation?

Our Senior Vet Surgeons are leaders. They nurture and support emerging talent and help shape the careers of future generations. Vets Now are committed to investing in the career progression of our people and we expect our senior vets to be ambitious in their own journey too. Whether you want to take on advanced learning with an ECC certification or participate in clinical research that will shape the veterinary profession, Vets Now will support you.

Out-of-hours doesn’t necessarily mean out-of-reach

You will be based at our Coventry clinic and be fully supported by our nursing experts and non-clinical team. The wider 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. Coventry clinic will offer a varied caseload of PDSA and private patients.

Delivering high standards

The Coventry veterinary team are motivated by driving clinical excellence and providing pet care at a time when it’s needed most. Being a Senior Vet Surgeon will involve triage, emergency and lifesaving treatment. If you’re looking for routine operations and daytime hours, this isn’t the job for you.

Your Opportunity

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