Equine Ambulatory Vet – Vectis Equine Vets

Isle of Wight Independent

Come to an equine practice with a difference – our catchment area is 23 miles x 12 miles, with an enthusiastic, happy team who enjoy working in a growing practice with great equipment and have time for life outside work. If that sounds too good to be true then come and visit us on the beautiful Isle of Wight to see what we do.

To start Feb/March 23 we are ideally we are looking for a full time vet (4 to 4.5 day week) but we value our staff and believe that the best care is given by vets that are happy in their work, so package can be tailored to suit individual’s needs and part time is a possibility if wanted.

100% equine in friendly, ambulatory, independent practice. Join a supportive team environment with a broad vet mixture of certificate holder, new graduates and recently graduated vets providing high quality care to patients, whilst ensuring an excellent work/life balance. Ambulatory but with our own stocks, hard trot up and ménage at local livery yard when required. Caseload is mainly pleasure horses and sport horses, with some FEI riders as well as over 120 donkeys at the IOW Donkey Sanctuary. .

We would love a vet with at least 2 years experience in clinical practice, but an enthusiastic recent graduate would also be welcome. The role would suit someone looking to work towards a certificate or a parent looking for a job that allows professional satisfaction as well as time at home with the family.
