Experienced Farm Vet Required

We are looking for an inquiring mind; a team-playing self-starter (but our experienced team is on hand to give you support!) who is keen to build great vet / farmer relationships with our clients. 
Depending on experience you will be carrying out routine visits, TB testing, Export Certification, herd and flock health plans and contribute to the OOH rota. We will provide you a with a vehicle and we have Easi-scan ultrasound scanners, bull fertility testing kit and a fully equipped lab for the hard-working new team member to use! 

We are keen to employ an experienced full-time vet (4.5 days, 38.5 hours per week), however we can discuss flexibility with the right candidate. Our OOH rota is equally shared - currently 1 in 7 week nights and weekends.

Avon Farm Vets is based near the picturesque village of Lacock, close to the market town of Chippenham, where there is a mainline train station and J17 of the M4. 

We are a small, dedicated farm team including seven vets, two TB Testers and a Vet Tech and four support staff. We have a wide variety of farm clients of all types, from smallholders to large commercial dairy herds.


The practice was created in October 2020 by the amalgamation of the farm departments of two long established mixed practices. We are already embedded into the rural community and are keen to build on this positive start. Are you up for rolling up your sleeves and getting really involved in driving our practice forward?

We will help you develop your veterinary skills and will support you in your career, PLUS As part of VetPartners we can offer a competitive salary rising with experience, a generous CPD of £1,750 over five days p/a, professional membership, 22.5 days holiday (plus Bank Holidays) and generous health and savings benefits.
