Job Details

Registered Veterinary Nurse required at Crieff Vets, Perthshire.

The Role
We are looking for a Registered Veterinary Nurse to join our nursing team. Ideally, we would love you to be part of our operating day, including schedule 3 procedures if that floats your boat. We would also love you to be confident developing and growing our nurse consultation service. The role is open to development by the successful applicant to make it what you want and what the practice needs.
About Us
We are a small, friendly, community practice based in the lively market town of Crieff. Enjoying all the benefits that rural Perthshire has to offer; with stunning scenery and amazing outdoor activities on the doorstep, yet only a short journey to Perth or Stirling.

We are actively growing and changing the practice to expand the services we offer. We would value input on how we can improve what we do.

Crieff Vets is a close-knit team, with varied interests and hobbies. You would be working alongside 4 vets (some of whom job share), a part time RVN and 3 nursing assistants. Reception is covered by our dedicated reception team, so time answering the phones should be limited! We pride ourselves on offering a personal and friendly service to our clients and this is reflected throughout the practice.
Applicant requirements
We need you to be a RCVS Registered Veterinary Nurse with confidence and drive to grow and develop our practice. Experience isn't everything and we would be happy to welcome and support a newly qualified nurse who is looking for guidance and experience. Equally, if you're looking to spread your wings and take the next step in your career, this role will offer you scope to develop and push yourself further.

Crieff Vets is an independant practice, owned and run by Kirsty Dewar and Susan Waddell, who have worked together at the practice since 2003.
There has been a veterinary practice on the current site since 1903. This was originally based at Craigforth House and was predominantly a farm animal practice. The purpose built surgery was first opened in 1979 and refurbished and expanded in 1997. This expansion created improved facilities for the increasing number of small animal patients.
Crieff Vets was formerly known as Ashworth Veterinary Group. There had been a member of the Ashworth family at the helm from 1955-2011. Gordon was first in charge and was then followed by his son David who retired in April 2011. Kirsty and Susan joined the practice partnership in 2007 and changed the name to Crieff Vets following David Ashworth's retiral.
The practice is a 'mixed practice' dealing with small animals, farm animals and horses.
