New or Recent Vet Graduate - Somerset


Competitive Salary


Somerset, South West

Job Type


Full Description

This Practice is mature and established, and enjoys a highly varied caseload encompassing all areas of small animal veterinary work.   The surgery was purpose built in 2008 and is equipped to enable you to do your job to the best of your ability; combined with the veterinary team’s expertise they are able to undertake both medical and surgical cases in-house to an advanced level.  For the successful applicant, this position will provide both breadth and depth of case exposure, working in a supportive environment.  The veterinary team are highly experienced, enjoy working to high standards, and are all keen to engage with coaching a new graduate.  They have also invested heavily in building and developing a great support team, so you will be surrounded by highly competent qualified nurses, impressive student nurses, and a friendly, professional, team of receptionists.

They deliberately choose not to subscribe to the rigid framework of a prescribed “new grad scheme”;  their tried and tested flexible approach to your development means that you will work closely with the  Practice Manager and Clinical Director to design a development journey that is individual to you and your needs, with the emphasis on you becoming a knowledgeable, competent, and confident vet, who enjoys great job satisfaction.

In additional to effective clinical and pastoral support, your benefits package will include payment of your professional fees, CPD, and a great range of discounts and rewards you’d expect from working in a Practice associated with a bigger group.  They also believe a sensible work:life balance is critical to your development and success.  As a full time vet, you will be working c.35 hours per week in the surgery which will include 1-in-3 weekends, plus only very light on-call duties of 1 week night every 3 weeks (following a period of development).  

The successful candidate for this position will be a new graduate with a confident, positive approach to starting their veterinary career.  They will recognise the unique value of this opportunity - especially in the current climate, and will be keen to grasp the chance to work with a team who want to dedicate their time and resources to their new colleague’s development.
