Job Details

We have an unmissable opportunity for a registered veterinary nurse to join our growing team in Portishead Vets for Pets.

In addition to a rewarding role in a superb location, you can also expect to receive:
  • Competitive Salary up to £35k depending on experience.
  • Contributory pension scheme
  • Paid holiday of 28 days, rising to 33 days after 2 years of service
  • Extra day off for your birthday
  • Paid professional memberships.
  • Dedicated CPD allowance and time off
  • Free car parking
  • Cycle to work scheme
  • Colleague reward hub - exclusive offers and discounts online and on the high street, including 20% off at Pets at Home, Vets4Pets and the Groom Room

This is a full or part time role, we can be flexible to work with you! We want to ensure our colleagues get an excellent work/life balance and so we have no OOH, no on calls and only require weekend cover for holidays which works out as 1 in 6 or 1 in 8.

You will have a good experience of veterinary nursing, excellent customer service and communication skills, be an effective team player and able to use your own initiative when required. The key to your success will be your ability to embrace all aspects of the role, delivering excellent patient and client care.

No two days are the same at our practice so you should enjoy the variety the role will bring. You will not necessarily need to have experience with the broad range of cases seen in the practice but would need to be a fast learner who is keen to get involved in all parts of the job. We support any team members who are interested in developing their skills.

You’ll be supported by our strong team of 3 vets, 2 nurses, 5 receptionists, practice manager and a deputy practice manager. They are led by Partner and vet, Nikolay Radev who graduated in 2006 at Trakia University in Bulgaria. He has gained experience with large animals in Finland before working with pigs in Minnesota for 2 years, and the UK for a further 18 months. More recently Nikolay began working with small animals in 2009 and then became Partner of Portishead Vets4Pets, building a fantastic reputation within the local community.

Our well-equipped surgery is purpose built to industry leading standards and you’ll get use of our x-ray, dental x-ray, multi-parameter, capnograph, v-gels, ultrasound, latest blood machines and DNA testing. We see a good variety of cases with a split of 40% dogs, 35% cats, 25% exotics, and a large amount of our loyal client base are insured.

We’re based on the busy Wyndham Retail Park in Portishead, just minutes away from Junction 19 on the M5, and Bristol and its airport within easy commute. If you like to spend your free time outdoors, Portishead is a pretty, coastal town, with plenty of walks and its own beach with nearby lighthouse!

We want our colleagues to be as diverse as our clients. Our teams are inclusive and celebrate difference so if you meet our role requirements, we’d love to hear from you.

Location: BS20 7BX

Pets just see people. They aren’t biased and they don’t discriminate. We take our inspiration from pets, and we value and respect difference in all its forms. Our aim is to reflect the diversity of the communities we operate in, and every colleague can help us achieve this. We encourage our people to be themselves so even if your skills and experience don’t perfectly align, if you think you can make a unique contribution through your values and behaviours, we want to hear from you!
