Job description


Veterinary Surgeon - West Mount Vets

Practice Site:
  • WMV (Halifax)

Our practice covers the whole of Halifax, the Calder Valley, Huddersfield and surrounding areas. We are proud to be able to offer high quality and up-to-date facilities at our surgeries. The main hospital site is in Halifax but we have locations in Mytholmroyd, Paddock, Todmorden and West Vale. 

Minimum 2 years experienced Vet required. We can also accommodate a New Grad Vet. 

If you are looking for an amazing learning environment, friendly, supportive team with flexible working options, you will get it all here at Westmount Vets! Absolutely amazing team of Vets, Nurses and Support staff. Main hospital is based at Halifax with branch practices in Todmorden, Mytholmroyd, West Vale and Paddock.  Extremely commutable area, the M62 connects you to Huddersfield, Braford, Peak District and an hour to Manchester! Also offering great public transport links. Close to Leeds Bradford International Airport and Manchester Airport.

We provide our own Emergency cover here therefore our rota working from our main hospital in Halifax works 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Therefore as a Vet, you will work with a varied and busy caseload including emergency cases.

You really do get the chance to be the Vet you trained to be at Westmount! Although working sole charge is a must, you will be supported by a qualified Nurse and Receptionist. Due to the sole charge nature of this post (when on OOH cover) we require a candidate to have at least 2 years' experience, ideally with having at least 6 months within a UK practice setting.

We have these interest in our Veterinary Team: Cardiology, Radiology, Ultrasound, Microscopy, Small Animal Medicine, Dentals and Soft Tissue Surgery.

We have excellent practice standards, great facilities to work within, and all the necessary equipment available to treat our small animal patients in an Emergency situation. You can opt to work days / nights / weekends on a rota basis. Rota patterns can be discussed with Helen our Clinical Director. New Grad candidates are always welcome! You are not left working sole charge until after your initial 6 months (or until you feel comfortable!)

We offer attractive salary and benefits including:

  • Company Bonus scheme.
  • CPD fully encouraged and funded
  • Assistance with further education / certificates
  • RCVS membership and VDS cover paid.
  • Company pension scheme.
  • Company Share saver scheme.
  • Perk Box offering a range of discounts
  • Employee Assistance Programme
