Are you looking for something a little bit better than just a job? Well we might have just the role for you..

We have an exciting opportunity for a Vet to join our two site small animal practice in Ipswich.

Our friendly and caring team is made up of seven vets, five qualified nurses and a full reception team are dedicated to providing a supportive and welcoming environment to new staff. We are lucky enough to have digital x-ray and ultrasound machine with a separate dental suite so you can have the freedom to work up your cases with the support if needed. If you are a forward thinking vet who likes working in a close team but also happy running sole charge we would love to hear from you!

Out of hours is run off site by MiNightVet due to this there is no requirements, giving you a great work life balance.

There will be a requirement for you to work across both our sites in Ipswich so having access to your own transport would be ideal.

Whether you are you looking for a busy developing town to live in or a sleepy seaside town to explore we are close to both, allowing you to make the most of your time off.

We asked one our team members what the enjoy about here '' I've loved working at Riversbrook for the last two years. The other vets are genuinely supportive and we all discuss cases together, have vet meetings once a month and share CPD. Every interest is encouraged, whether that's surgery or exotics.''

Great rates of pay and bonus scheme
Relocation package, including on site accommodation whilst settling into the area
RCVS & VDS fees paid 
CPD funded and encouraged 
5 weeks annual leave with the option to buy or sell up to two weeks leave
