Veterinary Surgeon - Maternity Cover

Mintlaw Vet Surgery

We are looking for an experienced Vet to join us for maternity cover. Full time or part time hours will be considered.

We offer a varied and exciting caseload with compliant clients, vets are always surprised how much our clients take advice forward. We have a fantastic support team that are very proactive in ensuring that the vet’s days run smoothly and we have really good support from our qualified RVNs.

For a small practice, we are well equipped a great box of toys including a really good ultrasound (training provided if needed). We also have endoscope and bronchoscope, K-laser (used every day in surgery), in house diagnostics Microscope, Idexx lab equipment, digital viewer for our x-rays and the usual anaesthetic equipment.

The majority of the bad weather doesn’t reach us from the prevailing westerly winds, it is a lot sunnier and drier than the west coast. There are lots of beautiful beaches to explore and help you relax.

We believe that good communication is fundamental to a fantastic team – frequent team meetings are built into the diary. Appointments are kept aside for ‘on the day’ use, and contingency built in to allow for the unexpected! We appreciate the importance of time away from work and have built a rota to give adequate time off – our whole team works hard to protect this.

We do our own on call, handled by an answering service, this is not a heavy workload with only occasional call outs to surgery. One in four weekends (working up to one in five).

Help can be provided, if needed, to find accommodation nearby but why not have a look on our website page and view a locals’ view of the area, you may want to move and stay here! There is scope for permanent position.

We offer a competitive salary, CPD is encouraged and funded, exclusive company discounts, reward schemes and career development.
