Emergency Vet – Chester / Wirral

MiNight Vets is a leading out of hours service provider with a vacancy for a Veterinary Surgeon with a passion for Emergency Critical Care work. Based within our Chestergates Hospital in Chester, we are a well-equipped  RCVS ECC practice standards hospital and you will be working within a referral setting with a varied and exciting ECC caseload!

Although you will work sole charge on a 7 on 7 off rota, you will be supported by another Vet until 11 p.m., 2 qualified Nurses and a Kennel Assistant.

Chester is a busy, vibrant, historical city based in the North West of England. Close to the border of Wales, approximately 40 minutes' drive to Manchester & Liverpool Airports, Chester also offers fantastic transport links to London. The City has been voted by an American poll as Europe's 5th prettiest city!

Our premises have just had a major refurbishment and the practice can offer you a supportive environment in which to develop your skills alongside an onsite multi-disciplinary referral hospital. We also offer regular in house training on site delivered by one of our own Specialists.

Applicants will be fully qualified with at least 2 years of small animal experience. You will have an interest in emergency medicine and surgery.

This unique position offers an attractive flexible rolling rota which would cover nights, days, weekends and bank holidays in a shift pattern that gives substantial down time away from the practice. We would consider both full and part time applicants for this role.

Benefits include: up to 7 weeks holiday including Bank Holidays' (of equivalent time off if on a rolling rota basis), a competitive salary, full support given to anyone wanting to gain a certificate in ECC or CertAVP, professional membership fees paid including RCVS fees, access to a pension scheme and flexible benefits scheme offering a variety of staff discounts.
