Veterinary Surgeon Job – Gateshead

Salary up to £60,000 DOE

Working nights and weekends? Yes, but it’s still the most rewarding job in the industry

We are at the forefront of emergency and critical care, making a real difference and saving the lives of pets each and every day. Working as an emergency vet surgeon will expose you to a diverse range of cases that you simply won’t see in general practice and we expect our vets to be at the top of their game.

Delivering high standards

Seeing approximately 4000 cases per year (private and PDSA), the Gateshead veterinary team are motivated by driving clinical excellence and providing exceptional pet care at a time when it’s needed most. The shifts are 15 hours in duration and the rota pattern will feature a mixture of weekend days, weekend nights and weekday nights (2:3 weekends). The role can be fulfilled on a part time basis.

Stand out from the crowd

Being an incredibly busy clinic, this job would be ideal for a vet who thrives in an adrenaline-fuelled emergency environment. You will be fully supported by an expert nursing team and coached by our district vet who will oversee your professional and career development.

Continuous professional development

We take pride and integrity in the work that we do and that’s why we are committed to investing in the career progression of our people. From accredited ECC certification support to clinical research studies we will support you in taking control of your own career development. RCVS and VDS fees are covered from day one.
