Veterinary Surgeon Job – Canterbury (12 Month Maternity cover)
Salary package up to £62,000 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. With a Veterinary Surgeon role at Vets Now you will be exposed to cases you simply wouldn’t experience in general practice.
Delivering high standards.
The Canterbury 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. If you’re looking for routine operations and daytime hours, this isn’t the job for you. You will work between 12 – 15 shifts per month with a mix of weekday nights, weekend day and nights and bank holidays, working no more than three shifts in a row.
