Surgery Information / Job Description

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a veterinary surgeon to join our fun, friendly, cake loving team at Derby Kingsway!

We’re seeking an enthusiastic, confident veterinary surgeon to join our friendly team on a full-time basis. We are expanding the team so this would be ideal for a new or recent graduate as there will be plenty of support and time for a gradual introduction to duties! As a minimum requirement weekends will be on a 1 in 3 rota but no OOH.

There will be sole charge duties but this can be delayed until we are confident they can be handled.

Person Specification

Our modern surgery has been designed to industry leading standards, with state of the art equipment and in-house laboratory facilities.

We are a Rabbit Friendly Practice and a silver standard ICC Cat Friendly Clinic, working regularly with Cats Protection.

She leads a supportive team of 1 other vet, 4 nurses and 3 client care advisors.

The ideal candidate to join our professional team will have good general small animal medical skills as well as a good knowledge of working up cases and ideally some surgical skill but a willingness to learn is key.

You will be part of a team dedicated to providing superb standards of client and animal care. We have a varied client base including plenty of insured pets.

We are a successful small animal practice close to the A38 with good transport links to Nottingham, Burton and the Peak District.


As you would expect from the market leader in small animal veterinary care, we offer :

  • Excellent career opportunities and development due to our varied case load
  • Competitive salary commensurate with experience
  • Contributory pension scheme
  • Generous CPD and funding of certificates for the right candidate
  • Paid memberships (RCVS, VDS)
  • Exclusive company discounts and rewards
  • If you share our passion for delivering outstanding pet healthcare and great customer service and would like to join our team, we would love to hear from you.

    We are an equal opportunities employer
