We are recruiting a permanent veterinary surgeon to join a growing team in Keighley. The practice can offer either full or part time hours which are negotiable and there is no ooh commitment. They offer a great work / life balance ensuring that the rota pattern means that the vet gets the same weekdays off each week and then the weekends are on a 1:4 rota basis. The weekend is a sole charge role so it is important that an experienced vet is confident in this area however there is back up support available if needed. The practice can also consider applications from new graduate vets as full support can be given with one to one coaching from the practice owner. The practice is in a beautiful area close to the Yorkshire dales and Skipton and boasts an excellent reputation in the area.
