Work for us

As of 2018, we are fully staffed with Vets and Registered Vet Nurses. But things can change! 

We are always keen to hear from Vets or Nurses 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 office@shetlandvets.co.uk


About Shetland

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.
