We have several posts available for omnicompetent, RCVS-registered veterinary surgeons with an enthusiasm for sharing their knowledge and experience with Veterinary undergraduates. We would consider candidates interested in both full-time and part-time employment.

Successful candidates will bring a strong understanding of first opinion veterinary practice across multiple species to complement existing staff in their ability to deliver high quality teaching and assessment across the veterinary programme. Their focus would be supporting theoretical and practical animal health and husbandry teaching across years one and two of the programme, and small group clinical skills teaching in years three and four. Support of practical assessment across all years of the programme, including delivery of OSCE assessments and final year oral assessments is expected.

Contribution to development of clinical skills, especially within the production animal and equine species would be encouraged to expand our existing extensive range of simulation models and support our existing team.

Enthusiasm and a willingness to work flexibly and to adapt to teaching creatively in a range of different contexts are essential, alongside excellent interpersonal and teamwork skills.

The University of Surrey, School of Veterinary Medicine follows a distributed model for final year teaching, and we are actively partnered with leading veterinary practices and local research institutes whose clinicians and scientists participate in teaching throughout the undergraduate curriculum. Successful candidates will join the Department of Veterinary Clinical Sciences and our supportive, multidisciplinary teaching team, who are dedicated to inspiring and equipping the next generation of veterinarians to engage with the challenges of the 21st Century.

The University offers an attractive salary package which includes support for CPD, a substantial holiday allowance, pension scheme and a 10% salary uplift for MRCVS-registered staff.
