  • Graduate Farm Veterinary Surgeon at Sandstone Vet Group, Cheshire

    COME AND GROW WITH US! We are seeking a new or recent graduate to join our team of 10 clinical vets.
    Sandstone Vet Group is a farm-only vet practice which was formed in May 2020 – we have quickly grown to a strong team of 10 clinical vets. Situated in the heart of Cheshire dairy country and serving the surrounding counties and north Wales, we have ample opportunities to gain all kinds of experience from the practical to consultancy level data analysis. We have a strong focus on clinical excellence and client care, with nearly all of our team members holding or working towards a higher qualification.  Mentoring and supporting our less experienced team members is built into our way of working.
    For more information about us, have a look at www.sandstonevetgroup.co.uk and if you think you’d like to be part of our team then we would love to hear from you! For more information or to arrange a chat, please email hr@sandstonevetgroup.co.uk
    About Us
    Sandstone Vet Group was established in May 2020 by Owen Tunney and Emyr Rowlands, who sensed an opportunity for a new, independent, progressive farm animal vet practice in Cheshire. We are a team of 10 experienced clinical vets working alongside 4 TB testers and a knowledgeable support team.
    Almost all of our vets have a higher qualification, reflecting their particular area of interest. This means that they can not only offer high-level advice onto the farm, but younger members of the team can be mentored and enabled to provide an excellent service from the start.
    What We Do
    At Sandstone Vet Group, our commitment is to put our farmers at the very heart of our business – where they should be! We work with clients to establish their priorities and contribute our clinical, nutritional and business knowledge to regularly assess current farm performance and areas of focus. In a nut-shell, we will give you as much or as little input as you require.
    Situated in the dairy heartland of Cheshire, we have a strong focus on dairy farms, but we also have extensive experience working with sheep and beef enterprises; upland, lowland, pedigree and commercial.
