Careers At Southill


Full Time Veterinary Surgeon

A great opportunity has arisen to join our team as we say a sad goodbye to a treasured vet as he retires from the practice after 37 years with us! We hope our next team member will have experience as some sole charge may be required on occasion, and a surgical bias is a big plus!  However, if you would prefer some support for those few GDVs we see then help is always at hand.


  • Are an independent, nurse training practice with 4 branches on the South Somerset/Dorset/Wiltshire borders

  • Provide a good work/life balance with a 4 day week, fairly shared OOHs and 6pm finishes. Saturdays are morning consults only.

  • Offer a friendly, supportive environment, like to discuss our cases and have a collaborative approach to problem solving

  • Provide our own OOH to our own clients only

  • Have NO selling targets and our vets have complete clinical freedom and ability to work up their own cases

  • Have a visiting specialist orthopaedic service

  • Offer 5 weeks holiday including Bank Holidays (pro rata)

  • Support and encourage CPD in your areas of interest, including funding for certificates

  • Offer a fair wage dependant on experience and level of qualification

  • Strive to provide the best care for our patients and invest in our staff, equipment and facilities

  • Have exciting plans for the future – will you be a part of it?

If you are interested in who we are and what we have to offer, or would like to ask some questions then please contact us on or call 01963 33226 and ask to speak to Vicky or Bob. We look forward to hearing from you!
