Expanding veterinary surgery in Syston, Leicester

We are a privately owned INDEPENDENT mixed practice seeking an additional experienced small animal vet to work at our busy practice in Syston.

Currently seeking general practice status through the RCVS practice standards scheme, we anticipate further growth through the expansion of the building with 2 theatres, 5 consult rooms, imaging room, additional kennel space, larger cattery and prep.  

As you would expect, our 6 small animal practices are all fully equipped with an extensive range of diagnostic facilities including digital x-ray, ultrasound, biochemistry and haematology machines along with multi-parameter monitoring.

Our close-knit team of vets are down to earth, friendly and willing to share their wealth of expertise.  We are fortunate to have a large team of experienced, dedicated RVN’s and support staff, all of whom share our passion for providing high standards of veterinary care to our patients and their owners.

Certificates are encouraged as our clients would much prefer an increase in our internal expertise. 

We have 6 certificate holders across the business with an advanced practitioner in small animal medicine along with a surgical certificate holder based at the Uppingham site. Several of our RVN’s hold certificates too and our reception teams are all registered with the BVRA.

We offer a four-day week as a good work-life balance is essential to maintain the high demands of veterinary life. The diary is always adjusted to make way for important appointments, family events and emergencies.

We take pride in caring for our own patients out of hours on an equally shared rota, maximum of 1:5 though currently 1:7. Along with the Monday off after your on-call, the three-day weekend following this is popular among our team. Our experienced, dedicated night nurse team ensure we offer 24-hour on-site care, as well as taking the out of hours phone calls. 

We are members of the XLVets community, collaborating with other like-minded independent practices; sharing knowledge, ideas and skills. 

In addition to your personal CPD allowance we hold regular in-house clinical and leadership CPD events; including ultrasound, dental, positive appraisals to name a few.

If you have excellent communication skills, work to a very high standard, value clinical discretion, would like to be part of a forward-thinking independent practice and work with a great supportive team, then we would love to hear from you.

In addition to all the above we offer:

  • Generous salary commensurate with experience 
  • 4-day week 
  • RCVS fees and Full VDS cover paid
  • Certificates encouraged and fully funded
  • 5 weeks paid holiday
  • Bonus scheme
  • Pension
