Export Official Veterinarian Strathaven 2024

Lock Applications for this job are now closed
DEADLINE 4th April 2024

Here at Avondale Veterinary Group, we are looking to recruit an Export Official Veterinarian to join our team.

If you are an Official Veterinarian, qualified in MRCVS we would love to hear from you! The role on offer is 100% export certification and you will be based at a large seafood logistics hub with a few other contracts exporting products of animal origin.

The shift pattern is 40 hours per week across 5 days. Weekend cover is required on a 1:3 basis, but scheduled days off are given in the same week.

A unique opportunity

The successful candidate will join Avondale Vet Group, a 23-vet mixed practice with an OV team of 5. The practice is based in a small, friendly community with plenty of opportunities outside of work. You will primarily work at a logistics hub with the export team.

About you

Full support and training in the practicalities of certification will be given. This role would suit a dedicated vet looking to develop themselves and their skills with the support of an exceptional team.
