Senior Veterinary Surgeon   23 October 2016

We are looking for a full time exotics/small animal vet to join our friendly and enthusiastic team. IDEAL CANDIDATE The ideal candidate will have experience with exotics and preferably hold further exotic qualifications. The caseload, facilities and clinical freedom would suit an advanced practitioner/ certificate/ MSc holder, but equally we would like to hear from vets with some experience who would like to be supported in their pursuit of a ZooMed certificate. Four previous vets have achieved certificates at the practice. Referrals and the range of cases provides a great daily challenge, but applicants without experience in a referral setting or across all taxa shouldn't be discouraged from applying as plenty of support is available a passion for exotics is the most important thing! Equally those having spent time away from cat and dog medicine can be provided support on this side too. We would like candidates to be integral to our practice and involvement in referral expansion, CPD provision/advice to referring vets, social media, written articles for owners and veterinary press and case reports /clinical research all actively encouraged. Good clinical freedom and case management/ continuity, although being a small practice our clients are well versed in seeing other vets, so not too cliquey! Candidates should have great client communication skills and so excellent written and spoken English is essential. A full driving license is required. Small animal OV panels would be preferable. OUR PRACTICE We are a proudly independent practice with a 75% Exotics 25% Cat and Dog caseload which is shared equally between vets. Exotics comprise of mainly exotic pets, with a good balance of avian, reptile and small mammal plus limited amphibian and ornamental fish. First opinion and referral. Some involvement with zoological collections. Two vets, becoming three. Head vet and principal is RCVS Specialist and as such we are London's only exotics specialist private practice. 3.5 nursing assistants and part time RVN plus receptionists. Good facilities digital radiography, colour Doppler ultrasound, rigid endoscopy, Doppler monitoring, ventilator, capnography, pulse ox, iso/sevo, mono/ bipolar radiosurgery, surgical magnification, surgical suction, hemoclips, nebulisation. 14 hospitalisation vivaria, separate small herbivore hospitalisation from carnivores, parrot boarding cages. East Sheen is a great outer London location with excellent links into central London (Waterloo 25 mins by train) but also is a leafy suburb next to Richmond Park and close to the M3/M4 for easy access out of London. Generally lovely clients who are dedicated owners looking for quality care and keen to work up with good proportion insured. Exotics clients travel from across London and the Home counties. We strive for a boutique, personal service to the local cats and dogs to differentiate us from the corporates. HOURS Four day working week. 1 in 2 Saturday mornings. In-patient checks (Saturday evening and Sunday morning and evening) 1 in 2 (moving to 1 in 3) weekends with time off in the week in-lieu. OOH we use an emergency clinic so you would not need to attend cases, but OOH provider may require infrequent telephone advice. PACKAGE Salary commensurate with experience. VDS cover provided. CPD 1000/5 days per annum. Any questions and applications by email to Matthew Fiddes MRCVS on cjhallvets@talktalk.net (Please email as the application link is not supported by all browsers)
