Looking for pastures new? We have an exciting opportunity for a third vet to join our expanding, independent farm practice in Shropshire!

Haywood Farm Vets is a new, independently owned farm practice, covering local farms in the beautiful Shropshire and Staffordshire countryside. Our vision is to deliver a bespoke, personal veterinary service to our clients and provide outstanding, modern veterinary care to their farms.

We have a diverse range of clients, farms and systems, but they all share a common attitude. they want to work closely with us, to monitor performance, collaborate, share knowledge and build expertise in their teams, Our clients see the value in our close working relationship.

As vets we recognise the importance of job satisfaction, career progression and a sustainable work-life balance; and we're creating a practice that puts our people and those priorities at its core. We are a team that collaborates, communicates and values our different skill sets. Our values and ethos are incredibly important to us and we need our expanding team to embrace that vision - but we are only at the beginning, so your ideas and aspirations can be an integral part of how HFV develops. We aim to attract, develop and keep the very best vets in our team.

As a new practice, we have taken time to reflect on what traditions we keep that bring value to us as vets (and as humans!), and what traditions we keep that bring value to our clients. This means we have embraced some important changes to the way we work to make being a farm vet an attractive, long term, sustainable career path that we're proud to be part of.

We promise not to become busy fools. And to remain independent. You won't be driving for hours between calls. No one works more than a 4 day week. We understand and value the benefits of flexible working, and that isn't just for parents. Our working day finishes early every day as standard. Our progressive and skilled client base ensures our day to day work is engaging and our on-call is quiet - and if you are called out their set-up is superb and they say thank you. There will always be someone at the end of the phone if you are stuck, and none of us are too proud to ask for help. Our TB work involves efficient TB testing with brews and bacon butties, and we treat TB as an infectious disease - the majority of our clients engaging fully in CHeCS accreditation or entry-level TB schemes. We embrace technology in making everything a bit more efficient, but we are not remote and make time for a pub lunch and a dog walk. We won't chase KPI's: we will simply trust you to work proactively in the clients' best interest. We will fully support your personal CPD plan. We want you to love being a vet with us, but to have time, opportunity and energy to live life too.
