Veterinary Surgeon – Hampstead Garden Suburb

About us

Medivet Hampstead Garden Suburb is led by two Branch Partners, Jeremy and Sarah, who between them have been there over 20 years and have a strong bonded client base, who are very invested in their pets and giving them a high standard of care.

We are a practice who pride ourselves on our genuinely friendly, supportive and collaborative team and there is always someone to ask for advice or lend a helping hand. Both have certificates in Medicine, with Jeremy’s interest lying in complex and chronic medical cases and Sarah doing a lot of the advanced soft tissue surgeries, alongside enjoying the client relationships with our regular patients.

Like many practices we have grown over the last two years and are seeking an extra vet to make sure everyone has a comfortable and manageable work load whilst also being able to accommodate the volume of demand from our patients – both in quantity and quality. It is very important to us that we have the time and ability to give great quality care, and as part of this we run 20 minute consults as standard.

Alongside the Branch Partners, we have another full time Surgical Vet and we are recruiting for this position to bring us up to 4 vets. We have 5.5 nurses (including 3 RVNS) and 3.5 receptionists.

We also work closely with our large 24 hour hospital in Hendon which is 10 minutes down the road which is our OOH provider and where all our inpatients are hospitalised and more complex surgeries/imaging (CT and MRI) are carried out.

We are seeking a Veterinary Surgeon to join our amazing 12 strong team at Hampstead Garden Suburb!

This role works to a 4-day week with 1:3 half or 1:6 full weekends. The hours are 9am-7pm with an hour lunch break.

We can also consider part-time hours, please get in touch to discuss further.

Our Hampstead Garden Suburb practice has a great atmosphere and a strong culture of empathy, growth and collaboration.

We’re seeking a like-minded vet who enjoys a synergetic approach with enthusiasm for offering a great service, building on the clinics local reputation and playing a crucial part within the team to add to our continued success!
