Job Description

We are looking for an enthusiastic and passionate Veterinary Surgeon to join our wonderful team here at Brighouse. This role would suit a newly qualified or recent graduate due to the excellent support we can offer.

Vets4Pets Brighouse is a busy, growing practice that has been opened since late 2016. Caroline, our senior vet, became Practice Owner in May 2021 and is joined by a team of 2 other experienced vets, 3 RVNs, 2 SVNs, a VCA, 4 receptionists and our practice manager.

Caroline has a certificate in surgery and performs several advanced procedures – soft tissue and orthopaedics. She is also working towards a certificate in ophthalmology. We also investigate and treat the majority of our medical cases in-house to give our patients the very best level of care. This is what makes us unique – we provide a personal service to our clients as we are a small, close-knit team, but we can offer advanced procedures that many other small practices cannot.

Brighouse is a vibrant market town, located on the River Calder and within the Metropolitan Borough of Calderdale in West Yorkshire. Brighouse is conveniently placed just four miles east of Halifax and 12 miles south-west of Leeds city centre. A huge bonus to commuters living in Brighouse are the direct and indirect trains regularly running down to London and back.

What can we offer you?

  • A supportive working environment with a lovely, friendly team and a fantastic learning culture where we are continually striving to provide the very best level of care for our patients
  • The ability to work to gold standard utilising the in-house digital X-ray, IM3 dental X-ray, ultrasound, laboratory, surgical suite, class IV laser therapy machine, separate dog/cat/isolation wards
  • Excellent clinical support and career development, certificates supported and encouraged.
  • Good work-life balance
  • Competitive salary, minimum of £36k for a new graduate and then dependent on experience
  • Generous CPD, £1500 per annum
  • Paid memberships – RCVS, BSAVA, BVA, VDS
  • Company pension scheme, income protection and life insurance cover
  • Exclusive company discounts with Vets4Pets and Pets at Home
  • 5 weeks holiday and birthday off
  • No out of hours

What do we want from you?

  • This is a full time (40 hour) role, 4 day weekday rota (same day off every week), with a Saturday rota of 1 in 3
  • You should have good basic surgical and consulting skills
  • To have enthusiasm for learning and the passion and drive that we all do to provide excellent client and patient care by working cases up to gold standard
  • And most importantly to enjoy having fun in an amazing team despite what wonders this job can throw at us day to day!
