We are looking for a permanent veterinary surgeon to join a practice near Leeds on a 7 Night on and 7 Night off rota. This is a large multi vet practice in the lovely countryside of Yorkshire and is also a training practice. There is an element of sole charge involved in the role, so it is important that the vet is confident in this area. The night vet would complement a team of 10 vets and 14 nurses in total. The practice comes with all the modern facilities and equipment as one would expect and boasts a variety of cases. Their practice will also be opening a new hospital next year with state-of-the-art equipment. This role would suit a vet wishing to complete a certificate or perhaps and certificate holding vet due to the nature of the cases that they see -  so this is an excellent opportunity for a vet to expand on their skill set and knowledge.

  • Monday to Friday: 7 nights on 7 nights off
  • Weekends: Yes
  • Sole charge: Some
