Veterinary Nurse - Small Animal Wing
Department of Veterinary Medicine, West Cambridge Site
Salary - £22,659.00 to £26,243.00 (pro rata for 0.96 FTE) + 15% Shift Allowance.
We have an exciting opportunity for a Registered Veterinary Nurse to join our expanding nursing team at the Queens Veterinary School Hospital.
The referral hospital is a very fast-paced environment which requires you to be adaptable with the ability to work well under pressure.
The role will be to provide nursing to an excellent standard in the Small Animal Wing.
The small animal wing consists of four dog, two cat, critical care and isolation wards housing an average of 15-25 patients during the overnight period.
Due to increasing caseloads in the hospital, we are looking for nurses who can cover 24/7 working on a 7-week generous and attractive rotating shift pattern, covering core, early, late, night shifts and time off. This will also include weekend working.
The role in Small Animal inpatients will include surgical, medical and critical care nursing (training can be given in critical care procedures). Cleaning, hygiene and administration duties linked to inpatient care will form a reasonable percentage of the time. This is a varied role where no two days are the same, so we are seeking individuals with a passion for nursing, with the ability to communicate with all levels of staff, students and clients. The ability to work on your own initiative with minimal supervision is essential.
In return, we offer an encouraging and nurturing environment and have a dedicated team of clinicians and nurses who are committed to providing the best care for our patients.
Once an offer of employment has been accepted, the successful candidate will be required to undergo a health assessment.
Closing date: 7 October 2019
Interviews will be held: 23 October 2019
