TitleVeterinary Surgeons needed- Cardiff
Show in VetGradtick
Show in VetBosstick
CountySouth Glamorgan
As we start to move into a new normal we are now ready to restart our recruitment process!
Our brand new state of the art hospital is well on the way to recovery following severe flooding in Storm Dennis, with upstairs facilities open and our CT scanner back up and running as of today! As well as this, our branch practices are getting busier and busier,and we are now looking for 3 vets to join our team!
Valley Vets are looking for vets with a passion for outstanding first opinion care to join a team of 17 vets with wide clinical interests. We are a group that are constantly striving to provide the best possible care for their patients, their owners and our teams.
We have 5 sites in and around the Cardiff area. Our 24/7 hospital refurbishment is well underway and we hope to to be back to full capacity by the new year!
All of our sites are fully equipped with a wide range of modern therapies and technologies including ultrasound, digital x-ray, digital dental x-ray and access to shared radiosurgery units. This allows our branches to be fully self-sufficient to work up and treat their own cases with the 24/7 support of our hospital. The hospital provides state of the art facilities such as CT, endoscopy and endo-surgery (key-hole), orthopaedic and soft tissue surgery, exotics referrals, medical referrals, dedicated dog, cat, exotic and ICU wards and a physiotherapy department including hydrotherapy. We are also on track to launch a radioactive iodine unit in Spring 2021- the first of its kind in Wales!
We employ a full team of emergency / out of hours vets and nurses to cover those demanding night and weekend shifts. But, if the excitement of emergency work is your passion we can work with you to ‘opt in’ to cover some weekend day shifts as suits you!
The first role we have available is for an INTERNAL LOCUM position and is available immediately. It is a role with the variety of locum work but the stability and perks of permanent employment. We want to ensure our vet team are not overstretched and so the internal locum will allow us to cover vet holidays/CPD and occasional staff sickness.
The remaining roles will be available from September and are needed to initially cover maternity leave for some of our lovely vets! The roles would be permanent contracts, rather than fixed term as we are confident the practice will grow to a level to support the additional head count over the next 6-12 months.
Our vets work a 4 day week, with 2 in 6 Saturday mornings, shared equally between the vet team, although we would be very open to discuss other rota options, including a mix of weekday and weekend day work if desired. Our employees benefit from a work place pension, health benefit scheme, £1500 CPD and 5 days CPD. 23 days of bookable annual leave. RCVS/VDS fees paid as well as your choice of two professional subscriptions.
Why not contact us at to begin the next exciting phase in your career.
Salary would be dependent on experience/skill level but the internal locum role will attract a higher hourly rate due to the nature of movement involved in the job. Salary banding £32,000-£50,000.
£1000 relocation allowance available for candidates applying directly rather than via an agency.
