Veterinary Surgeon - Thirsk, North Yorkshire - Full Time

Thirsk, North Yorkshire

Job Description:

We have two exciting opportunities for a new graduate or a Veterinary Surgeon with a couple years’ experience to work at the famous Skeldale Veterinary Centre in North Yorkshire, which was originally the James Herriot practice and now on TV as the Yorkshire Vet!

The mixed animal position will have a varied caseload as the mixed practice is 75% small animal, 15% large animal and 10% equine. The other opportunity within Skeldale will involve working purely on small animals. This is a brilliant opportunity to work in a supportive environment with an established team of vets who will be able to train and support you.

This purpose-built practice is on the edge of the beautiful Yorkshire Moors with good road links to the A1M and only two hours and thirty minutes away from London by train. Skeldale Veterinary Centre is fully equipped with an in-house laboratory, dental suite, newly renovated surgical theatre and much more!

The ideal candidate will either be a new graduate or have a couple of years’ experience and a driver’s licence. Good communication skills are a must, alongside confidence and a can-do approach.

We offer a competitive salary package including vehicle and accommodation options plus CPD encouraged and generously funded.
