  • Veterinary Surgeon required

    An opportunity has arisen for a veterinary surgeon to join our team with an equine bias. As we continue to grow there will be huge potential for this role to evolve.
    The position can be equine only although the ability to do some fire brigade farm work would be very beneficial. TB testers are used to minimise the testing load on clinical vets.
    Our equine work consists of mostly leisure horses as well as hunters, competition and commercial yards. Work is generally ambulatory however, we do have a knock down box and stable for minor surgical procedures. Equipment includes in house lab, motorised dental kit, scanners, scope and digital x-ray. CPD and career progression encouraged.
    Our rota encourages a healthy life-work balance with time off after nights and weekends on call. We have the benefit of being based in the enviable geographical position of mid Cornwall making easy access to great beaches, moors, woods, surfing, sailing etc.
    For more information or to apply for the position please get in touch via email info@kernowfarmandequine.com or for an informal chat about the role call Alistair 07968 724117 or Ron 07779 250046
