Job Status: Permanent / Full Time

Seven Animal Health is looking for a Veterinary Surgeon to work in a practice based in Northamptonshire. If you are looking for a new challenge then apply now.

The role:

As a Veterinary Surgeon you will be working with small-animals in a RCVS-accredited practice. You will need to set a high standard for the practice and provide excellent client satisfaction. You will work alongside veterinary surgeons and practice managers to provide the best possible care for animals, while educating pet owners about how they can manage and prevent further injuries and/or sickness.

Key Responsibilities:

  • To perform work with relative autonomy and seek advice from more senior staff when required. Once help has been sought, individuals should manage these cases wherever possible.
  • To be able to develop surgical skills in line with the practice ‘competency sheet’ – the sheet creates a reference point for both the type and length of procedures individuals should be undertake.
  • Being able to take an accurate recording of these procedures is required to enable progress to be tracked and targeted guidance to be given where required.
  • To be competent in taking blood samples and interpreting the subsequent results.  Interpretation of complex cases should be achieved through personal research creating a list of potential problems. The differentials should then be discussed with a more senior clinician resulting in an appropriate treatment plan being developed.
  • To be able to understand the context in which all the technical aspects of their role are practiced. All patients are the responsibility of an owner and thus communication with these individuals is paramount.
  • Pre-authorising work, keeping owners up to date with costs and their animal’s clinical progression are all essential elements of the job.
  • To be aware of the commercial impacts of their work and thus ensure that they are responsible for accurate billing.
  • To be accurate in note keeping in line with the suggested practice methods.
  • To take full responsibility for their CPD and all other mandatory requirements of their continued veterinary registration.

Applicant Requirements:

  • Qualifications: A degree in Veterinary Medicine.
  • Experience: New-graduate Veterinary Surgeons.
  • Compliance: Registered with the RCVS and proof to live and work in the UK.
  • Travel: Clean UK driving license with the ability to commute to and from work independently.
  • Hours: Full time, Permanent.
