Update: June 2019 RVN vacancy filled.
We are delighted to announce that we are looking for a new Veterinary Nurse to join our team at Shetland Vets. You can find the details about the Veterinary Nurse position and please do not hesitate to get in touch to discuss this further.
As of 2018, we are fully staffed with Vets. But things can change!
We are always keen to hear from Vets who may be interested in working in Shetland in the future, either on a permanent or Locum basis.
Please send an e-mail, with your CV, to firstname.lastname@example.org
The Shetland landscape is very beautiful and wild and there is plenty of scope for various outdoor activities – walking, bird-watching, sailing, kayaking etc. Most sports and hobbies are well represented with clubs here, and people are generally friendly and welcoming.
The community here is fairly prosperous, mainly due to the presence of the oil industry. The schools are excellent and well-resourced and there are several leisure centres with swimming pools and gyms. Unemployment is very low compared to the national average which means there would be employment opportunities for an accompanying partner or spouse.
The Shetland.org website has more information about living and working in Shetland.
