Veterinary Surgeon Job Description.

East Sussex Wildlife Rescue & Ambulance Service (WRAS) has a new and exciting Veterinary Surgeon role becoming available to join our team of staff and volunteers based in the centre of East Sussex. You will need to be efficient, strong, confident, kind and must be passionate about wildlife welfare from pigeons to peregrines and from dormice to deer. You will be working alongside dedicated staff and volunteers who form our veterinary supervised Care Team, Rescuers and Care Assistants. We are looking for someone who is forward thinking, open minded, a team builder, good at working with volunteers, encouraging and enthusiastic to help expand our charity and its ability to help the wildlife of East Sussex.

Who we are:

East Sussex WRAS is a Registered Charity No 1108880, which has been established for 25 years. We are registered with the RCVS as a veterinary practice for over 10 years and have been slowly expanding our veterinary capability to the point that we now required a part time veterinary surgeon on site.

What we do:

WRAS is East Sussex’s primary dedicated 24 hour wildlife rescue service. Our mission is to rescue, care for and rehabilitate, displaced, injured, lost or abandoned wildlife and to prevent unnecessary suffering, returning them to their home range wherever possible.

Our vision is to be the leading provider of veterinary care and treatment to all wildlife animals across East Sussex.

We operate several volunteer driven veterinary ambulances who collect wildlife casualties and take them to our hospital for assessment by our Care Team who are supervised and trained by a small team of consultant Vets.  We have digital x-ray and an ultrasound machine we would like to expand our veterinary capabilities. Are you the person to help us do that?

What we can offer you:

A positive supportive environment, working within our lay staff and consultant vets.

Varied and interesting caseload including emergencies and critical cases.

Involvement in exciting future plans to build a new veterinary hospital and facilities.

Flexible Hours – 18 hours a week.

Salary based on experience.

Statutory Pension.

Pro Rata paid membership of RCVS, VDS and BSAVA.

Relevant CPD courses paid for.
