We are looking for a Registered Veterinary Nurse to join us! The role will include general veterinary nursing duties. Our qualified nurses run their own nurse clinics, perform schedule 3 procedures and also train students. We offer an excellent rota, a mix of 8:00am – 4:00pm and 11:00am – 7:00pm shifts. 6 in 12 Saturday mornings and no night, weekend or bank holiday duties because these are covered by Vets Now. Competitive salary based on experience and will be discussed at interview.
The ideal person will be friendly, enthusiastic, motivated, hardworking and fit well into our current team of 12 vet nurses, 2 student nurses, 3 animal nursing assistants, 7 vets and 7 receptionists and a chance to work alongside our Orthopaedic Specialist. Our nurses are always encouraged to learn new skills, we offer generous CPD allowance and full support. Excellent equipment including flexible and rigid endoscope, digital x-ray and CT scanner.
