Independent practice seeking Veterinary Surgeon


Drake Vets is an independent RCVS accredited Small Animal Practice, in purpose-built premises located on the edge of Dartmoor, near Plymouth.

We have 3 RCVS GDP advisors, between them holding GP Certs in ophthalmology and surgery. A further 2 vets with interests in dentistry and cardiology.

We have a strong nursing team consisting of RVN’s, SVN’s and additional support staff

We are currently looking to recruit a full-time Veterinary Surgeon but will consider part time. At this stage we would prefer a candidate with some experience.  Later in the year we will be opening a new graduate position.

The role includes a dynamic mix of consultations and surgery. We encourage following through with your own cases (surgical and medical). The veterinary team are supportive and encourage clinical discussion and collaboration with complex cases.

We are proud to offer our clients and patients continuity of care by providing our own ‘out of hours’ service. The out of hours is generally quiet with on-site nursing staff covering nights, and weekend hospital cases.

4 day week

OOH is a 1:5 night and weekend rota with 2 days off for doing a weekend.

Remuneration is very competitive and dependent on experience- email for details.

If you would like to work in this beautiful part of the country, in a supportive friendly and fun practice with direct access on to Dartmoor, then get in touch.

If interested, please call us on 01822 854255 and ask for Karen Tyrrell or Chris Jones or email us at chris.drakevets@btconnect.com for further information or other contact information.
