Veterinary Surgeon

Job Type: Full-time Location: Lewes, East Sussex

The Role

We are looking for an enthusiastic small animal Veterinary Surgeon to join our friendly and highly supportive team. The position is a 4.5 day week, with weekends and out of hours duties equally shared (approx 1 in 5 weekdays and 1 in 4 weekends). Time in Lieu for out of hours duties during the week ensures a good work life balance.  Cliffe Veterinary Group is a large mixed practice with dedicated small animal, farm & equine departments. The position would be primarily with our small animal team but there may be a mixed role for the right candidate. You will be based primarily at Lewes, with occasional days at our branch surgeries at Ringmer & Woodingdean.  CPD is encouraged and funded with additional study time offered for those working towards certificates.

About Us

We are a progressive, well equipped (TTA, ASIF, laparoscopy, digital radiography, endoscopy, ultrasound/doppler etc.) RCVS accredited practice with a varied surgical and medical caseload. We have a full time laboratory technician who will run a very large range of diagnostics “in house” to provide an exceptional level of care for our patients.

We are located in the vibrant, historic market town of Lewes, just 10 miles from Brighton. Our small animal team comprises of 8 vets, 11 nurses and support staff. We are a friendly team of a variety of ages, with several of us having been here for many years! This is an opportunity to live in a beautiful area in the South Downs with great transport links to London and Gatwick.

Applicant Requirements

We are seeking motivated, enthusiastic applicants to join our team. Recent graduates or more experienced vets considered, with flexibility for the role to be adapted to your level of experience. Recent graduates are encouraged and very well supported throughout their progression by certificate holders with a wealth of training experience.
