FULL-TIME POSITION FOR RECENT GRADUATE, BERKSHIRE AND SURROUNDING COUNTIES
Exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic recent graduate wishing to pursue a career as an equine vet. We are a friendly, supportive, and progressive ambulatory veterinary practice, located on the edge of Windsor Great Park and within easy reach of London and major airports. The practice has a varied client-base from leisure riders to professional show jumpers, dressage riders and polo players
The successful applicant will be very well supported by the practice’s other vets and office staff. They will receive all the necessary guidance and support to be able to work independently within a relatively short period of time. Experience handling horses is essential.
The practice has a substantial pool of portable diagnostic and therapeutic equipment available to all the vets, including wireless DR, ultrasound, video endoscope, video gastroscope, focal shockwave, and motorised dental equipment. The opportunity will exist to work-up interesting cases, while being able to refer complex ones that need specialist treatment.
When ready, out-of-hours cover will be shared with the practice’s five other vets and an external out-of-hours provider, with days off in lieu of weekends on call. Typically, the successful applicant will be on-call no more than one weekday-night a fortnight and one weekend in eight, but will likely also have to help with polo match cover on additional weekends from mid-April to mid September. They will be fully supported by the practice’s other vets while on-call.
The package includes a competitive salary, generous CPD allowance, VDS cover, RCVS and BEVA memberships, workplace pension scheme, use of a well-equipped work vehicle, and an iPhone.
This is a great opportunity to be part of a very professional, friendly team and to help look after some great clients, many with high value competition horses.
