We are looking for a Veterinary Surgeon to join us here at Reading and work alongside our highly experienced, dedicated team. Given our varied and diverse caseload, we can accommodate a Veterinary Surgeon with either a surgical or medical bias.

Fix or flex – work life balance that works for you

We would welcome both full and part time applicants. Typically, this position is full time over 5 days per week, working a combination of early shifts (8am-4.30pm) and late shifts (11am – 7.30pm), with 1:3 Saturdays and no OOH (when you work a Saturday, you gain a day in lieu). Our people are at the heart of everything that we do, that’s why we know that work-life balance is vital in supporting our people to be their best selves. Whether you are looking for hours around rush hour, a four-day week, or reduced working days/hours, we can fix or flex our patterns to suit you.
