Experienced Veterinary Surgeon
Our practice is expanding and so is our team! Our brand-new state of the art practice is now fully up and running and we are seeking to hire an experienced and passionate vet to join our friendly team. This role will be based at our Broughton Astley and Lutterworth branches. Our opening hours are Monday to Friday 8.30am until 6.30pm and Saturday mornings (1 in 5 rota) 8.30am until 12.30pm.
Broughton Veterinary Group is a well-established and respected veterinary practice dedicated to providing exceptional care to pets in our community. Our branches in Lutterworth, Broughton Astley and Leicester are fully equipped with the latest technology and equipment ensuring our team have the tools they need to deliver the highest quality medical and surgical service.

Twenty minute consultations as standard ensures our vets have time to build relationships with clients and spend time performing through examinations. Regular breaks are allocated throughout the day so there is time to call back clients, discuss cases with colleagues and make sure you have a full hour lunch break and leave work on time! We are passionate about providing excellent care in a low stress, positive environment, ensuring our colleagues all have a good work/life balance.
We have a range of expertise including certificate holders and specialist surgeons/ ultrasonographers who regularly visit to help with more challenging cases and improve the skills of our team.
