Are you a Veterinary Surgeon looking for an exciting, flexible new role? If so, we may have the perfect opportunity for you at Newtownards Vets4Pets! Full time or part time applicants will be considered and the rota can be planned depending on what would work best for our new vet, taking into consideration any out of work commitments, childcare needs, caring responsibilities etc – if shorter days with later starts or earlier finishes than the average day in practice would be preferable this is an option, or if you would prefer to work longer days & have more full days off that could also be accommodated. We would also consider someone who is able to work longer hours during term time & shorter days during school holidays. Work life balance is very important to us & to try to ensure we all leave on time we finish routine appointments 45 minutes before the practice closes every day. We are closed from midday on Saturday, closed all day on Sunday & use Vets Now for OOHs.
We have established a lovely, loyal client-base and enjoy an interesting and varied caseload. You’ll be working in our bright, spacious, air-conditioned surgery, which is purpose built to industry leading standards with state of the art equipment.
The ideal vet to join us will have good surgical and medical skills, and be capable of working sole charge at times. You will be passionate about providing an excellent service and working as part of a highly-skilled team. You will also have the ability to work up cases to a high standard. If you prefer a mainly consulting role this can be accommodated & if you love surgery & orthopaedics we are well equipped with orthopaedic kit to enable a range of routine & emergency procedures including cruciate repairs, patella surgeries & fracture repairs although we know this is not everyone’s idea of a fun day at work! We are keen to support specific clinical areas of special interest with funded CPD.
Our offer to you:
• Excellent career development opportunities
• No OOH or Sunday working
• Contributory pension scheme
• Competitive salary based on experience
• Generous CPD allowance and plenty of support
• Paid memberships
• Exclusive company discounts & rewards
We are based in Newtownards town centre, with easy commuting options to Belfast by car or bus, and beautiful coastal walks nearby. For further information or to apply please contact us at email@example.com

With such highly sought after speakers as Adrian Boswood and Dan Brockman, how could it be anything but a success! A good turnout of vets from all over Northern Ireland came along to hear the two presentations. They also had the opportunity to take part in some practical human CPR training on the day too.
This event also saw the AVSPNI charity draw come to a close with Michael Woodside from Clare Vets winning the HeartSine defibrillator which was very kindly donated by HeartSine. All funds have been raised in aid of Northern Ireland Chest Heart and Stroke and the Freeman Heart and Lung Transplant Association.
