Jan has been with Broughton Vets for almost 8 years but is leaving to work in New Zealand!

We require a head nurse for a busy 8-vet mixed (small animal and farm) practice. We need an experienced RVN with good organisational skills and enthusiasm to lead our hard-working nursing team. Must be able to delegate and motivate to provide efficient nursing support within the practice.

Opportunities to clinical coach; develop nursing clinics; encourage others to build on their own skills and interests; and to include some schedule 3 procedures. There is also a chance to be involved in farm animal aspects for anyone interested.

A pivotal role liaising between the vets and nurses to ensure the smooth running of the practice. Excellent facilities and support from the veterinary team, including a deputy head nurse.

Hours are 38 hours per week with 28 days holiday (pro rata), plus a share of the Saturday morning rota (approx 1:5). Minimal OOH and no phone duties. Funded CPD and RCVS fees covered.
