Surgery Specialist

With exciting growth plans for the future and a mission to deliver the best small animal care in the northwest, NWVS is expanding and as such is looking for a Specialist Surgeon (soft tissue and/or orthopaedics) to join existing teams.

The successful candidates will join our friendly, proactive team of European and RCVS Specialists and will have plenty of scope to develop their own interests and clinical research.

As we’re growing, career development opportunities, such as Head of Service or developing our current residency programme further, abound. So if you are a Diplomate (RCVS/ACVS/ECVS) or residency trained, or have similar small animal skills and experience then we would love to hear from you.

Full or part time hours are available, as are job share and flexible working options to enable a good work/life balance.

Located in modern facilities Northwest Veterinary Specialists is an easy commute from Chester, Liverpool, North Wales and Manchester. Major road and train routes, as well as international airports, are within easy reach, as are beautiful national parks, forests and mountains.
