Senior Equine Veterinary Surgeon


1 days left

Onley Nr Rugby, Warwickshire


Full time, Permanent

Situated in the beautiful Warwickshire countryside, the Onley clinic of Towcester Equine Vets is based within Onley Grounds Equestrian Complex, one of the country’s leading equestrian venues.  Our senior vet is relocating! So, we are looking for an experienced vet wanting the challenge of leading the development of our Onley team (3 vets, 1 nurse, 2 support staff) and the services we offer from this site.  We are an RCVS accredited, independent (mixed) practice, with a friendly team who are dedicated to delivering great service with a personal touch.

Although Onley-based, you will also work as part of the wider equine team – our Equine site in Towcester offers full hospitalisation facilities and reproductive services (with indoor stallion collection facility), with a further 8 vets, 2 interns, nursing and support teams based there.  We have purpose-built treatment rooms; surgical theatre; in-house laboratory; endoscopy; gastroscopy; shockwave and laser capability.  Our accounting process is supported by the Eclipse system which enables vets to view all notes, diary, and bill via mobile phone whilst on ambulatory calls.  We encourage a collaborative approach and provide support to all members of our team, no matter how long since they have been qualified!

We treat a varied mix of leisure and competition horses, and the high orthopaedic and first opinion caseload offers interesting and varied clinical work.  Your weekly duties will include orthopaedic and poor performance investigations/diagnostic procedures, routine healthcare, and emergency work.  Our equine vets work a 4-day week including 1 night on call, plus 1 weekend in 4 as part of an on-call team, however, we are happy to discuss more flexible working arrangements as required.  Candidates who have a particular interest in dentistry and/or reproductive work will have the opportunity to explore these areas further and help develop the range of services offered to the clients offered in the northern half of our catchment area.

We pride ourselves on the relationships we build with our clients, and so effective communication is key, along with professionalism, a good work ethic and strong time management skills.  You must feel comfortable working flexibly and adapting to changing priorities as they occur with a can-do attitude, and ideally a sense of humour!

The successful applicant will have a degree in veterinary surgery and membership of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons, plus the right to work in the UK.  Ideally, our new Vet will have gained several years’ clinical experience working within an equine practice, perhaps including some supervisory or leadership roles.

We will offer a competitive salary as part of the remuneration package – benefits include Private Healthcare, generous CPD allowance, RCVS fees paid and staff discount.  A vehicle is not supplied but mileage is paid.

To be considered for this role please submit your CV plus a covering letter outlining why you are interested in joining our Practice, salary expectations and notice period to Sue Adams, HR Manager

We are committed to equality of opportunity for all and welcome applicants from diverse backgrounds.
