Total package up to £56,000 DOE
Working one in two weekends? Yes, but it is still the most rewarding job in the industry
Let’s be honest, working overnight, weekends and bank holidays as an emergency Vet is challenging. We balance this in Aberdeen by having a diverse and varied caseload that will test your clinical and surgical skills. It is an extremely exciting role at Aberdeen…you’re saving the lives of pets every single day.
Delivering high standards
The Aberdeen veterinary team are motivated by driving clinical excellence and providing pet care at a time when it is needed most. Being a full time Vet Surgeon at Aberdeen will involve triage, emergency and lifesaving treatment. No two shifts are ever the same. If you’re looking for routine operations and daytime hours, this isn’t the job for you.
Together we save pets’ lives
In Aberdeen, the clinic is fully complimented by our nursing and clinical support teams. 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 is sharing best practice or seeking advice on a particularly complex case, you will never be alone at Vets Now.
Great place to work
We don’t ask you to work nights and weekends without making it beneficial for you. Recognising hard work is important to us. Our employees are our greatest asset which is why we offer a first class benefits and rewards package that could include - 6.6 weeks annual leave, pension contributions, professional membership, free holiday accommodation in Arran, 50% discounted staff pet care, death in service of two times annual salary, membership of employee wellbeing programme, company sick pay scheme, company maternity, paternity and adoption pay scheme and your birthday as a day off.

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.
The local area
The city is mixed with quaint old pubs alongside newer nightlife with a fantastic selection of restaurants and worldwide cuisine. There is something for everyone in Aberdeen. With easy access to ski slopes in winter and breath-taking walking areas for summer. There is also a good choice of schools and a great variety of out-of-school clubs around the city.
We are looking for MRCVS registered Veterinary Surgeons to relish the diverse caseload that ECC naturally brings, especially during busy nights and weekends. This role would be ideal for a Veterinary Surgeon who can think on their feet and thrive in an adrenaline-fuelled emergency environment but also fully utilise their time during quieter spells. The shift pattern will involve working an average of eleven shifts a month, mix of day and nights (13.5 hour long night shifts), and will feature one out of two weekends. However, we are open to discussing weekend and shift frequency for the right candidate.
