Vet Surgeon

Location: Sheffield  |  South Yorkshire  |  England
Sector: Vets
Consultant: Amy Coughlan
Job Reference: 35953
Salary: £40000 - £40000
Job Status: Permanent / Full Time

Seven Animal Health is looking for a Veterinary Surgeon to work as a permanent member of staff within an established and popular small-animal veterinary practice in Sheffield, on the edge of the Peak district.

What you will get from the client:

· The ability to work up your own clinical cases with all the essential diagnostic tools, in an environment that encourages case discussion amongst the 8 vets in the practice.

· Experience with a spectrum of cases, with the support of other experienced colleagues available 24/7, including a certificate holder. We provide our own OOH cover, shared among all staff. However overnight on-call starts at 9pm, by which time most patients needing urgent attention have already been seen, so this is rarely onerous.

· Salary package from £40,000 depending on experience (including the usual perks of CPD, professional memberships, RCVS and VDS subscription etc) for a 40 hour week.

· Friendly, helpful staff. (All our nursing staff are qualified RVNs or nurses in training and we are a VN training practice – so there is a lot of support in both clinical and non-clinical areas).

· A 1 in 6 rota for bank holidays and weekend work with time off in lieu.

· An atmosphere of continued learning with regular clinical club meetings and in house CPD, most recently including microscopy and haematology provided by Idexx staff.

· Climbing, cycling, walking and great Peak District Pubs are all on our doorstep.

What they’re looking for:

· Your ability to empathise and communicate with clients and other staff is most important.

· Good consulting technique and manner.

· Excellent technical veterinary skills in all aspects of surgery and medicine are an added bonus.

Applicant Requirements:

  • Qualifications: A degree in Veterinary Nursing.
  • Compliance: Registered with the RCVS.
  • Travel: Clean UK driving license with the ability to commute to and from work independently.


  • CPD Allowance of £1,500 per annum and 5 days CPD paid leave.
  • 30 days annual leave.
  • RCVS and VDS fees paid
  • 50% discounted staff pet care plan.
