Want to work with us?

We have exciting opportunities to join our team.

With surgeries in Glusburn, Ilkley and Skipton you have the opportunity to join a passionate team of veterinary professionals from all walks of life. We are based on the edge of the beautiful Yorkshire Dales, within 30-45 minutes of Leeds by train and 30 minutes from Leeds Bradford International Airport!

What’s it like working for us?

Being part of our team means working amongst colleagues and friends who are likely to be from different backgrounds with different experiences but ultimately, when it comes to caring for our patients, we are the same.

Whilst every day is different, our team is established – with many of our team members working with us for several years. Each person brings with them a wealth of knowledge and a caring attitude so nothing is ever too much for someone if you need support.

We’re social; whether you like quiz nights, meals out, craft workshops or team games, there’s something social for any lifestyle.

It’s time for the next step in your career, take that step with Ashlands Vets.

Permanent Veterinary Surgeon

As a Veterinary Surgeon, you’ll complement our team of 15 Vets, 15 RVNs and a whole team of great support staff. You will grow your knowledge as you work alongside many skilled & supportive certificate holders (including certificates in medicine, surgery, dermatology and ECC). Our experienced team means that we can deal with surgical and medical cases in house allowing you to follow your own cases with clinical freedom and support.

We believe our patients deserve to have 24 hour care provided by the professionals their owners trust. This benefits you as our in-house OOH provision means you have continuity of cases (as well as some of those exciting emergencies!) We understand however the effect on-call has on work life balance, so we have made this low impact and very flexible. Our full-time vets currently work 4 day weeks (fixed day off) and 1 in 5 weekends. We are very happy to discuss flexible working.

We invest in our vets! As we grow our surgeries and move towards our brand new hospital (due Autumn 2024), we’re looking for veterinary surgeons keen to develop their skills with us and are happy to cater to your interests. We actively encourage and support study towards further qualifications.

Whether you’re still finding your feet or are more experienced, we’re looking for someone who loves being a vet and wants to join our super friendly welcoming team!

Salary scale: £34,000 – £60,000K (advanced scale for certificate holders)
