Job description


Veterinary Surgeon (Cardiology Bias) - Springfield Veterinary Group

Practice Site:
  • Springfield (Rotherham)

Springfield Veterinary Group is made up of eight branches, working together to provide a high level of care.  Our largest site is our Tier 3 accredited veterinary hospital based in Rotherham, Three other sites, Ecclesfield, Crystal Peaks and Richmond, are fully functional operating branches, able to house day patients comfortably.  The remaining branches, Mexborough, Wickersley, Chapeltown, and Gleadless, are single vet branches providing consultations only on-site. 

Experienced Veterinary Surgeon with Cardiology Bias

Due to a colleague moving into referral practice, an exciting opportunity has arisen to join our well established practice in South Yorkshire.  We are looking for somebody to take over an active referral caseload from our Cardiology Advanced Practitioner later this year.  An existing certificate holder would be ideal but we would also consider somebody part-way through a certificate with the right practical skill-set.

Based around a 24 hour tier 3 hospital in Rotherham, we have an additional 5 branches across Rotherham and Sheffield.  We currently have 5 Advanced Practitioners and take local referrals in surgery, medicine, cardiology and ophthalmology, as well as running an autonomous night service.  Our practice is friendly and forward thinking with an excellent supportive team.  We have 6 Outstanding RCVS awards which reflect our no-blame culture and genuine desire to offer the best for our patients.

The ideal candidate will have a passion for providing high-level care, and be happy working in both large and small teams.  Currently our cardiologist works a 3 day week, with a ratio of approximately 80% cardiology referrals to 20% first opinion work, however we are looking to continue growing the cardiology service.  For this reason, candidates looking for both full time (4 or 5 day week) and part-time roles would be considered.  Weekend daytime work is undertaken on a rota basis.

Career development is a priority at all levels; several of our vets are undertaking certificates, and our more qualified colleagues support and skill-share amongst the team.  Package includes RCVS and VDS cover, pension, SAYE scheme, industry leading maternity/paternity/adoption leave benefits, up to 7 weeks annual leave (with our buy and sell holiday scheme) Perkbox and much more.  Salary commensurate with experience.
