NIGHT VETERINARY SURGEON required at The London Cat Clinic   £58K - £70k

We have a fantastic opportunity for a night Vet Surgeon to join The London Cat Clinic team. Working 7 nights on 14 nights off.

This rola allows a fantastic work life balance. Located in Bermondsey, London. 

About us

Our clinic is very definitely independent, purpose-built, and Gold Standard. We celebrated our 4th birthday in May 2021 and have nearly 4000 registered patients which brings an interesting and varied caseload, being a mixture of fun first opinion work, a significant number of interesting and challenging second opinions and increasing referral caseload. We have the only feline-specific ophthalmology service in the UK and have made a successful transition to providing 24/7 emergency and inpatient care to close the circle on high-level care we give our patients during the day.

As we expand our services and bring on new team members, our aspiration to be a centre of clinical excellence is well on-track. In the months and years ahead, the pressure will be on us to live up to our reputation and ensure a consistent and brilliant experience for cats and their carers, day or night, whether from a vet, a nurse or front-of-house colleague.
Critical to our success is the open, honest and transparent relationships we must have as a team –understand we are all different and celebrate this, support each other, bring past experiences and new ideas together in an impactful way. We must respect each other and the wonderful building in which we get to practice what we are passionate about every day.
We value all our team members equally and a core value is that the ‘whole is greater than the sum of its parts’. We expect you to feel the same!

About the role

We are looking for a Night Veterinary surgeon with at least 2 years post-qualification with experience in ECC and a keen interest in in feline medicine. The position is medicine and in-patient management heavy but as the position is ‘sole-charge’, your surgery skills should allow you to comfortably perform non-routine emergency procedures, such as C-sections, exploratory GI surgery, etc. You would expected to be comfortable with AFAST/TFAST/VPOCUS and if you knew your way around a cat’s abdomen, this would be great, but this part isn’t essential, and training can be provided. If you are studying towards a certificate or post-graduate qualification, the Clinic’s caseload will enhance any study or certification theory with practical exposure.

You will work closely with our day team to ensure our patients have continuous gold standard healthcare.
Work/life balance is ever more important in this changing world and so we are happy to offer 7 days on 14 days off, each day shift is 13 hrs and each weekend/bank holiday shift is 15hrs.

We have a wide range of equipment available to you at all times including:

 Flexible and rigid endoscopes/otoscopes
 Mini-lamparoscopy kit
 Digital X-ray/Dental x-ray
 Ultrasound with multi-frequency curvilinear, linear and phased array probes for abdominal and thoracic/cardiac imaging.
 Syringe drivers/pumps
 Oxygen tents/Bair huggers
 In-house Idexx Vet Station including coags


Our employees are our greatest asset which is why we offer an excellent range of benefits and rewards package that includes:

- Salary £58 - £68 (DOE)
- Discretionary performance bonus
- Joining a close-knit team
- 30 days holiday
- 5 days paid CPD leave
