Large animal vet required

Exciting opportunity for a full time, permanent vet to join our keen and enthusiastic team.

Tethera is a proudly independent, progressive farm and equine practice in the Eden Valley, just off the A66 and 25mins off the M6 at Penrith. Close to the Lake District and Yorkshire dales we are fortunate to live and work in a beautiful part of the Country.

Although experience would be advantageous, enthusiastic new graduates are welcome to apply.

  • Good mix of dairy, beef and sheep with plenty of routine work as well as lots of calving and lambing.
  • All the equipment you would expect- easi-scan ultrasound scanners, X-ray machine, bull and tup fertility testing equipment, Total-vet, in house lab for mastitis samples and worm and fluke counts etc.
  • TB testing shared equally between all vets and our locum TB tester. Export work is also shared out between all vets.
  • Regular farmer meetings on a variety of topics.
  • Small amount of first opinion equine work.

We are really proud of our team at Tethera- we all have individual areas of interest and value the ability to muck in and work as a team. Any prospective candidates will be encouraged to speak to as many of our team members as possible to help you get an idea of what we are about and if we are the right fit for the next step in your career.

As Tethera grows we continue to look for ways to develop the services we offer which has recently included youngstock services and OPA scanning of sheep. We are always open to new ideas and are hoping to find a keen forward-thinking vet to join us. The role could be mainly farm or involve more equine work, depending on your preference. Holding OV panels for exports would be an advantage but is not essential.

Exciting bit:

  • 4-day week, 8.30-5 (maintaining a good work: life balance is really important to the practice- we all have various hobbies that we pursue outside of work and this is encouraged).
  • 5 weeks holiday plus share of bank holidays.
  • CPD funded and encouraged- Recently we have had vets working towards certificates and the Diploma in Bovine Reproduction.
  • You would be joining our team of 6 full time vets who have a broad range of experience. There is always someone to ask, full back up provided out of hours initially if required, we all learn from each other and encourage clinical discussions in work- it is very much a team sport.

Boring bit:

  • Rota- 1 in 6 on call weeknights and weekends.
  • Friendly vet and reception team.
  • Options to develop areas of interest.
  • Salary commensurate with experience.
  • RCVS, VDS and either BCVA or BEVA membership paid for.
  • Car can be provided if needed.
