Thank you for your interest in working for the Orchard Veterinary Centre.

Locum vet required

We are a long-established and progressive independent practice working from three sites in the West Midlands. We have the usual facilities, including ultrasound and digital x-ray. Our main centre has just reopened in new state-of-the-art, fully air-conditioned, cat-friendly premises with four consulting rooms, two operating theatres and a hydrotherapy unit.

There are six other vets, some certificated, and thirteen RVNs and trainee nurses. Our workforce enjoys exceptional team relationships and contentment, which results in very low staff turnover. We have developed excellent client relationships and this, with our unique health scheme, results in very satisfied clients.

We are seeking a friendly locum for two or three days per week, initially for a few weeks or months, starting at the end of June. There is no on-call or Sunday/Bank Holiday work. You will need to be compassionate and enthusiastic with high ethical standards and good clinical, surgical and communication skills. Of course you will be expected to fit in with all the new biosecure working methods.

You are invited to explore this website and visit our lively Facebook page to learn more about us or, for more information, phone Wendy on 0121-544 0404.or email
