Hook Norton Veterinary Group is an independent practice which offers dedicated small animal, equine & farm care across a wide geographical area. We currently have 3 branch surgeries located in Charlbury, Deddington & Moreton-in-Marsh. Our main tier-3 RCVS accredited Small Animal Hospital is based on the outskirts of Hook Norton, with excellent transport links nearby to London and Birmingham (only 1 hour away). All of our surgeries boast state of the art equipment allowing us to offer ‘Gold Standard’ veterinary care including CT, endoscopy and surgical suites. At HNVG we pride ourselves on our client retention and clinical decision making, rather than focusing solely on achieving rigid sales targets.

Job Role

We currently have an opportunity for an experienced and ambitious Small Animal Veterinary Surgeon to join our friendly and dedicated team. We allow complete clinical freedom to manage and work up cases, with support and training from experienced vets, should the need arise. Mentoring is offered via designated internal staff and external support through the XLVets mentoring scheme. We actively encourage medical/surgical development for all stages in your career.

The role requires work on site at our busy Hospital in Hook Norton and occasional sole charge at Branch, with realistic 15-minute consults. OOH inclusion is required based on one continuous week of nights and one weekend of days on a rotational basis. Currently this is very reasonable at less than 5 each per year.


The ideal candidate must have a minimum of 3-4 years of UK experience in a similar job role, hold a valid UK driving licence and be a team player with high clinical aspirations.


  • Competitive salary, commensurate with experience
  • 4-day week
  • Enhanced holiday entitlement
  • Generous CPD allowance
  • Private Health Care
  • Exclusive company discounts and OOH rewards
  • Comprehensive access to the XLVet community & resources
  • Full and unwavering support towards Certificates and career development
  • Free parking at all branches
  • Branded uniform

This is a great opportunity for a good work/life balance, providing the time to join in with our vibrant local community & enjoy the fabulous Cotswolds. We have great local facilities, schools and lots of cosy pubs!
