We are looking for a friendly veterinary surgeon to join our team based in the market town of Epsom, Surrey. This growing practice turns 3 this year and continues to go from strength to strength!
What we can offer:
- Competitive salary
- 1 in 3 weekend rota
- Enhanced annual leave
- Birthday leave

The practice is ideally situated close to the town centre and within a 7 minute walk of Epsom train station and also offers free onsite parking. The practice offers a range of state of the art equipment including digital X-ray, ultrasound with Doppler, a growing orthopaedic kit and separate dog and cat wards and it is also a nurse training practice.
Our principle vet qualified as a veterinary surgeon 15 years ago in South Africa and is joined by a talented and supportive team of 3 RVNs (soon to be 4), 2 veterinary care assistants (one of whom will be starting their nurse training in April) and 2 receptionists. The team hold a variety of interests including surgery, exotics and anaesthesia.
The practice sees a wide variety of cases from puppies and kittens through to older patients needing X-rays, bloods and scans and orthopaedic and soft tissue surgery is carried out onsite. The practice run 15 minute consults as standard but 30 minute consults for puppy vaccinations and new clients.
The principle vet offers a supportive and progressive work environment and is hugely supportive of further learning opportunities for all of her team. The rota is structured to be as fair as possible and to ensure a great work/life balance.

You will need to be confident in all routine surgical and medical cases and you will also enjoy building strong relationships with patients, clients and the wider team. An interest in exotics or medicine would be ideal but not essential!
