This is a great opportunity if you are a Head Nurse seeking a new challenge or an experienced RVN ready to take the next step in your career, as we can provide you with a supportive environment in our experienced team. You’ll be working alongside 4 vets, (once we are fully recruited) with the Clinical Lead Vet having over 15 years of experience, 1 SVN who qualifies this year, 2 VCA (1 due to start as SVN this year) and 5 Client Care Advisors.

We are a dynamic practice who aim to offer a very high standard of care for our patients across a wide range of cases and have a fully equipped practice with a wonderfully loyal client base.

  • Comply with all policies and procedures within the surgery, including Health and Safety Regulations
  • Calculate and administer medications and keeping accurate records
  • Assist the Veterinary Surgeon during surgical procedures
  • Clinical Coaching and support of student nurses (training not essential and will be provided) 

You will have a good experience of veterinary nursing with excellent customer service and communication skills. You should be an effective team player, have a systematic approach when making decisions and be able to carry out the role effectively with planning and organisation. You are friendly, down-to-earth, have a genuine interest in animal welfare and enjoy the variety provided by the clients and colleagues alike.
