Weekend Jobs in Bradford


Weekend Veterinary Surgeon

About Us

People’s Dispensary for Sick Animals was founded to provide vet care for sick and injured pets. Now, over 100 years later and with 48 pet hospitals fully operational across the UK, we’re proud of the fact that we continue to provide expert care to those pets and people who need us most. What we do really matters!

Our approach is unique as we combine pragmatism with a strong client care focus to deliver good clinical outcomes for both people and pets – we focus on measuring our impact rather than targets. To achieve this balance effectively, support is key and there is always the opportunity to share complex cases and discuss treatments and outcomes with both highly experienced surgeons and those who are new to the profession.

About You

If you want to make a difference and join our amazing organization, you will be a qualified vet who enjoys working as part of a large and close-knit team providing consistent, quality clinical care. You will have strong people skills, be confident in communicating with a wide range of clients, and, of course, have a sense of humor. We also believe in developing talent across the full range of clinical practice so a willingness to share your skills and lead by example is essential.

Your passion for what we do will drive you to champion the charity and promote client contributions and always keep an eye on resources suggesting efficiencies wherever possible. We really do listen.

The work is fast-paced and challenging so we work hard to ensure that you have the work-life balance that suits your needs as well as enables us to deliver an outstanding service. Ask us about flexible options!
