Small Animal Vet - Buchan Vets

Buchan Vets are recruiting!

Due to an expanding client base, we are looking for a small animal vet to join our rapidly growing practice.

With 14 full and part-time vets, these positions can be biased towards either small, large or equine interests and there is plenty of scope to develop personal passions. Support will be given to working towards certification.

Based in Aberdeenshire, we are ideally placed for outdoor pursuits including skiing, surfing, riding, golf and hill walking while only 40 minutes from Aberdeen, the oil capital of Europe.

We are a truly mixed practice with 4 centres, two of which are predominantly small animal, 1 mixed and one large/equine.  All are equipped to a high standard with all the usual toys.  Our team consists of mixed, farm, equine and small animal vets working over 4 branches. We have a great team of RVNs, student nurses and in house trained support staff who, along with an experienced reception team, provide an excellent support system to the vets.

The well-equipped large animal/equine branch has been totally refurbished and extended to cope with a rapidly growing and wide ranging caseload, (beef, commercial and pedigree sheep and some dairy) alongside 1st opinion equine with back-up from visiting specialists.  

Experience preferred but enthusiastic New Graduates considered. Finding the right person to share our goal of high standard animal care is the most important factor.
