We are a 7-vet, independent, 100% ambulatory practice based in Biddulph Moor covering much of Staffordshire, Cheshire and Derbyshire, and are looking for a colleague with an interest in lameness to continue the expansion and development of the orthopaedic side of the practice.

Our clients encourage (and expect) cases to be worked up properly creating an invigorating clinical environment to work in. This is an excellent opportunity for the right candidate to continue their clinical development with a predominantly orthopaedic caseload.  Here is a brief day-in-the-life video of Stuart Pearson on the job: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uUZameSS6_A

  • Working hours: Flexible working patterns considered
  • 20 days annual leave plus bank holidays + birthday off (bank holidays shared on rota, Christmas rota discussed and shared fairly!)

  • CPD allowance and enthusiastic about further support towards additional qualifications 
  • Cloud-based diary & management system which minimises admin time
  • Practice vehicle, Private healthcare, Pension scheme + Employee benefits package
  • Paid subscriptions (VDS - professional indemnity insurance, BEVA, RCVS)
