Experienced Farm Vet
We are searching for a forward thinking, enthusiastic, experienced farm vet to join our client’s friendly team in Chelmsford.
The team consists of six 100% farm vets and two administrative assistants. We are ambulatory, but work out of a lovely office, (with fields behind for exercising the office dogs).
The practice recently won the small practice SPVS and RCVS Mind Matters Veterinary Wellbeing Award.
The work is among the most varied a farm job can be – you would see everything from commercial dairy, beef, sheep, pigs, poultry and camelids, to smaller-scale, hobby farming, multi-species open farms and pet farm animals. We do our own TB testing (LRA), product and animal export work, and where possible, are supportive of further education e.g. certificates. We do routine fertility work, health planning and plenty of individual animal work, with a high surgical caseload. If you are interested in teaching and veterinary education, we also take on farm rotation students from the University of Surrey.
1:5 rota, which will alter with an expanding team. A weekend on call entitles you to a day in lieu, and the practice rewards second on call with a day working from home.
Chelmsford is great for going out, shopping, dining out and cinema, you’re never far from a good country pub, we’re close to great beaches (many dog friendly year-round), and Essex is a hub for watersports and biking (Olympic facilities, don’t you know!). Fast access to London, and it’s not far from the stunning Suffolk Coast for a bit of time out. Essex has just about everything; it’s a fantastic place to live and work.
Many employee benefits such as:
- 5 days CPD annually and £1000 CPD budget
- Pension Scheme
- Employee Reward Scheme
- VDS cover
- RCVS fees paid
- RCVS library membership
- BCVA + 1 other professional subscription
- Company Car, Phone, Laptop
- Health Insurance
- Competitive Holiday allowance
Salary is commensurate with experience. There is scope within this role to develop your career in many different ways, so if you’re looking to work in a progressive environment with supportive colleagues who value a team ethic, please contact us for further details or send your CV and covering letter.
