Small Animal Registered Veterinary Nurse
Full time including 1 weekend in 6
Towcester Veterinary Centre is a mixed veterinary practice located over 4 sites within and around the historic town of Towcester, Northamptonshire. We are an RCVS accredited, independent practice, with a friendly team who are dedicated to delivering great service with a personal touch.
Our Small Animal practice has attained Tier Three status and includes a hospital plus 2 smaller sites. We are a Gold Standard Cat Friendly clinic, offering separate dog and cat waiting areas and ward facilities. We have two surgery certificate holders and one medicine certificate holder and therefore have the opportunity to work cases up to the highest degree. We offer laparoscopy, endoscopy, orthopaedic work and have an extensive in-house lab, ultrasound and digital x-ray equipment to support our treatment. Our lab facilities include Milab/Vetscan and bacterial culture testing, and you will be trained to use this equipment. We offer nurse clinics including weight and nutritional advice, puppy and kitten checks, socialisation visits and puppy parties, and you will be involved in all of these (when restrictions allow).
We hope to recruit a self-motivated and committed RVN who is confident with the responsibilities of the role and able to contribute effectively to our existing team. They will be passionate about animal care, organised and proactive to ensure they achieve the required tasks without close supervision. Communication skills are also key, as well as enthusiasm and resilience - we work in a challenging but ultimately rewarding industry!
This position could suit a recently qualified or a more experienced nurse. If you are ready for a change and have a confident and positive outlook, then we would like to hear from you!
