Now Recruiting – Full Time Veterinary Surgeon (New Graduate Summer 2023)
We are pleased to announce an exciting opportunity for a new graduate veterinary surgeon to join St Vincents Veterinary Surgery in the summer 2023. We care for a wide range of companion animals in and around Wokingham and have an excellent reputation for our care and communication. Based in the heart of Berkshire, a stone’s throw from Windsor and central London, Wokingham is a vibrant town with excellent transport links, yet still surrounded by beautiful countryside.
We offer a fantastic working environment with a great team ethic in our independent veterinary practice owned and run by Nancy and Michael Morrow. Building on our proven track record as a training practice for RVNs we are now ready to offer a position to a new graduate vet to help and guide you as you develop your clinical skills. We are accredited by the Vetsure Graduate Friendly scheme and will be following their program to help you flourish and become a dedicated and valued member of our team.
During your first two weeks, there will be no clinical duties! We have an induction plan that focusses on helping you get to know our team, practice, and systems, ensuring you’re fully settled and comfortable before starting clinical work. Your induction will progress into a comprehensive first year development program supported by Michael Morrow MRCVS as your dedicated mentor. The program includes clear objectives with regular catch ups to share feedback, ideas and review ongoing support.
