Welcome to Arvonia Vets 

Small Animal Veterinary Surgeon- a fantastic opportunity to learn and grow in a supportive practice

We have a vacancy for a small animal vet to work across our two sites in Cheltenham. The practice is an independent that has been established for over 40 years and has sites in The Reddings and in Churchdown. Both sites are a few minutes from Junction 11 of the M5 for easy access.

Our team is relatively small and very friendly, we are about 3 to 4 full time equivalent vets. The main surgical facilities are at the Reddings site. In addition, the Churchdown site has been refurbished to a very high standard internally. There is an excellent team spirit at the practice where colleagues discuss cases and provide mutual support.

Having worked at Bristol University Vet School for 6 years, Richard Hillam has a passion to teach and develop his colleagues in the practice, he holds certificates in both Radiology and Surgery. 

Equipment includes an excellent range of laboratory and surgical equipment. Richard perfroms most surgical procedures including advanced cruciate repairs and more complex soft tissue surgery and enjoys teaching colleagues new procedures. In addition we have an excellent DR x-ray system and a high end ultrasound with cardiac probe and software. Patient monitoring equipment is of high quality with multi-parameter monitoring available. We have experienced RVN's supporting the veterinary team.

We use the Voyager/Vetspace/Merlin practice management system. We encourage CPD and would encourage any new member to work towards a certificate and we would support and fund that. Equally we would welcome a colleague with a certificate, medicine or cardiology would be preferred but any certificate would be welcome. 

Our appointments are all 15 minutes (or 30 minutes if needed). 

We have just rebranded and are all very enthusiastic to create a great work place with happy staff and a practice that we can be very proud of. Being independent, we encourage clinical freedom without targets and measures in place. 

There is no on call just 1 in 4 Saturdays, and we could accommodate part or full time. We can also provide accommodation in Cheltenham if needed. An excellent salary package is available.

We would encourage colleagues at any level of experience to apply, from recent graduate to certificate holder, and we embrace colleagues from around the globe in our welcoming and friendly practice.

If you would like to know more and have a chat please call or email, we would like to meet you!
