Veterinary Surgeon Job – Coventry
Total package value up to £55,000 DOE
Working nights and 1:2 weekends? Yes, but it’s still the most rewarding 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 Coventry you will be exposed to cases you simply wouldn’t experience in general practice.
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.
What's in it for you?
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 includes:
- 6.6 weeks annual leave
- Pension contributions
- Professional membership fee's
- Free holiday accommodation in Arran
- 50% discounted staff pet care plan
- Death in service of twice your annual salary
- Membership of employee wellbeing programme
- Company sick pay scheme
- Company maternity, paternity and adoption pay scheme
- 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.
We are looking for an MRCVS Veterinary Surgeon to relish the diverse caseload that ECC naturally brings, especially during busy nights and weekends. You will work a rota of weeknights and 1:2 weekend pattern, never working more than three shifts in a row. We are open to discussing different rota patterns for the right candidate. If you’re looking for routine operations and daytime hours, this isn’t the job for you.
At Vets Now we are passionate about training and the ongoing development of our employees. If this vacancy is of interest and you feel you would benefit from a supported route in to our business then one of the options below may be perfect for you.
Cutting Edge: 10 week supported route into a full time role with Vets Now for those looking to start their career in ECC.
AdvantEdge: 2 week programme for experienced, talented Vets that will fast track them into a successful emergency role.
