The Bilton Veterinary Centre is looking for an additional Small-animal Veterinary Surgeon to join our team. This post would suit a vet with at least two year to three years’ experience. The ideal candidate would possess excellent communication skills, enjoy client interactivity and needs to be relish being part of a successful team.
We are the oldest practice in Rugby, having been formed over 75 years ago. Our staff turnover is very low with three of our five vets, and six of our eight qualified nurses having been with our practice for over 10 years. We think this says a lot about our practice ethos and atmosphere.
We enjoy a good a mixture of consulting, operating and case investigations, and you are free to work-up your own cases individually but with the support of our more experienced colleagues. We also actively encourage both client and case continuity allowing you to see things through from start to finish and to build up a good rapport and working relationship with clients.
Being a single site practice means you will always have support and advice when needed. We currently have a rota system that allows you to have two "short" days a week. On one day you start at 12.30pm and on another day you finish at 2.30pm and so this does allow for adequate time off. Our out-of-hours system is soon to be changing too...
We are planning to only do part-time on-call. This allows us look after our in-patients and see any emergencies in the early evening. After 10pm weekdays and after 1pm on Saturday we are aiming to use a local OOH provider. This is shared equally between all the vets.
Our practice is extremely well regarded in the local area. Our popular Facebook Page has over 3,000 followers now, as well as a current FIVE STAR Rating on Google and with VetHelpDirect - in fact, we were voted in the Top 25 Practices for both 2016 and 2017.
Bilton itself is right on the outskirts of Rugby, which is a large growing town with all the associated amenities. Whilst it is an urban area it is very close to the countryside as well as being within easy reach of the M1, M6, A14 and other other transport networks. London is less than an hour away by train, and there are good rail links to the rest of the county. In fact, Rugby was voted in the Top 20 Places to live in a recent BBC Survey
