4 month contract opportunity for an experienced, confident Veterinary Surgeon to join a beautiful, progressive practice in South London – Job ID: 3233

About this vacancy and our Client’s Veterinary Group

We are working with a wonderful small animal veterinary practice in South London who are seeking a confident, experienced and competent Vet to join their team on a fixed-term contract basis. Ideally the contract will be for about 4 months as a starting point, although there will be an opportunity to discuss extension or permanent employment further down the line, depending on the practice requirements at the time. You will be welcomed into a friendly existing team of 5 Vets at various stages in their career – you should be happy supporting and helping your colleagues without exception, whether you are offering guidance to a New Grad Vet or offering a second opinion to the Clinical Director on a complex case. The surgery is beautiful, purpose-built and spacious – featuring modern, state-of-the-art equipment.

Veterinary Duties

In addition to all routine consults and operations, which you should be well-versed and confident in, you will also be required to take an active interest in sharing your ideas in areas of business development. You will be working on a structured shift basis on a mixture of consults and operations, within a close-knit team network.


Our ideal candidate will have at least 18 months’ experience in practice, and there will be plenty of help and support available as needed. Sadly we cannot accept applications from new graduates at this time as the practice is in need of a vet who is confident managing consults and some routine surgeries independently.

• Structured shift patterns over a 4-day working week
