Veterinary Surgeon – Permanent/FTC (applications from new graduates welcome)

 Oakwood Vets are growing….and we are looking for more help! 

Would you like to join our super-supportive and ambitious small animal Vet team at an exciting period of expansion and improvements?

Oakwood Vets have an exciting opportunity for a full-time Veterinary Surgeon and applications are welcome from new graduates.  The role is permanent or can be a fixed term contract if preferred.

Our success has been achieved through dedication, conscientiousness, compassion, and teamwork, equally applied to patients, owners and fellow members of our team.

Located at the heart of the Waveney Valley in the beautiful South Norfolk countryside, Harleston is a vibrant market town full of historic buildings and with an array of cosy tearooms and individual speciality shops.

Only a half hour drive from the fine city of Norwich, and close to the glorious Suffolk coast and the vast forests of the Brecks, yet with quick and easy rail links to London and the world, we all think this is the best place in the country to live.

From our humble beginnings over a century ago as a traditional mixed practice, we have evolved into a 5 vet, RCVS accredited and nurse training small animal practice with all the toys facilities you would expect and a varied case load to develop your career.

Our client numbers are increasing in response to the excellent care we deliver, and we are looking to grow further over the coming years with building development underway to enlarge and improve our facilities.

Our ideal Vet would be friendly, have a collaborative and organised approach to client and patient care and a strong desire to help us make our practice the best that it can be. We are a friendly team where everyone’s contribution truly counts! Join the Oakwood Vet family where we want our team members to truly enjoy coming to work and thrive in a super supportive environment.

We have the skills within the team and a VetGDP mentor to help support and develop a newly graduated Vet but equally can provide challenging work for a more experienced colleague and have the resources available to support study for a certificate if desired. An interest in surgery would be helpful to support our current surgery certificate holder.

Package & benefits include; 

  •  Salary £35-45,000 (FTE) depending on experience.
  • RCVS, BVA, BSAVA & VDS fees paid.
  • CPD allowance, new graduate CPD scheme, study for a certificate would be supported.
  • Online learning platform with clinical & personal development content.
  • Holiday entitlement of 33 days (FTE).
  • Team discount & health scheme.
  • Workplace pension options.
  • An amazing team of nurses and receptionists to help and encourage you every day.
