Surgery Information / Job Description

Our great team are looking for a confident and enthusiastic Registered Veterinary Nurse to join us at Bedford Companion Care! 

This is a fantastic opportunity for you to join our friendly, busy and progressive practice. We are based inside a Pets at Home store on the busy Interchange Retail Park, giving us great exposure to new and varied clients. We have a high case load of exotics and small furries and are a rabbit and cat friendly practice. 

The surgery itself is bright and spacious, built to industry leading standards and has state of the art equipment including digital x-ray, ultrasound, Doppler BP, capnography and in house lab machine.

Person Specification

This role would suit an ambitious registered nurse with great communication skills, who is looking to work with a positive and supportive team.

You will be organised, enthusiastic and enjoy working as part of a team which includes 4 vets, 4 RVNs, 2 SVNs, 2 VCAs (weekends) and 4 CCAs. These roles play a key part within a small, friendly team so the ideal candidates will need to be adaptable, flexible and good team players. 

We are able to consider both full and part time applicants, 32-40 hours per week which can be negotiated, and will include weekends on a rota basis, but no OOHs encouraging the whole team to enjoy an excellent work/life balance.


We can offer you:
• A supportive and friendly working environment 
• Salary up to £26,400 (dependent on experience)
• Dedicated CPD allowance
• Contributory pension scheme
• Free on-site parking
