Full or Part Time Veterinary Surgeon


We are a growing, independent eight-vet, small animal veterinary hospital based five minutes from the city of Lincolnís cathedral. We need another full time or two part-time vets to enable us to support our growing client base and ensure our team can continue to give the level of service they want to give.

Our purpose-built, well-equipped premises allows us to support our high and varied caseload. The right candidate for this job will work alongside two directors who are still very much a part of the clinical team, as well as investing time and energy in supporting their staff. We encourage and support CPD - Carolyn already holds her PG Cert SAS, Elizabeth is doing her Medicine Certificate, Susana has her PG Cert Emergency Medicine and Surgery and is now doing her Advanced Practitioner in Emergency Medicine and Critical Care, Miri has her MSc in Clinical Animal Behaviour and our newest recruit Hannah has started her GP in Exotics.

They are surrounded by thirteen highly motivated capable nurses (eleven qualified and two SVNís), eight experienced supportive receptionists and two patient care-driven kennel assistants. We strive to give our clients the best service we can whilst ensuring we have a happy and fulfilled team. Our full-time vets work a four-day week plus a share of Saturday mornings. We use Vets Now for general OOH so our rota is one night per week and a one in six or seven weekends on-call for inpatients only. Any of our vets would be happy to chat with anyone who wants to know more about working at VH.

A generous package awaits the right candidate:

- £29-45K + (depending on experience plus bonus)

- BUPA healthcare, pension, income protection

- RCVS/BVA fees paid

- Very generous CPD allowance.


We have regular practice meetings, regular one-to-ones, cake days, social and team-building events, a staff room with a fully equipped kitchen and coffee machine for lunch and coffee breaks, a Facebook group to post work and non-work news, a recognition board to say thanks to each other, and last-but-not-least Secret Santa and a Christmas party!

In the first instance, please call Katy the Practice Manager on 01522 708317 ( Monday- Friday) or email your CV and a covering letter to katy.hockham@vhvets.co.uk
