We are a family friendly practice based in Ayrshire in the South west of Scotland and are looking for a registered veterinary nurse to join us, we would also love to hear from student nurses due to qualify this year.
We are passionate about our people and strongly believe in creating an honest and happy workplace where we can develop and grow professionally whilst having quality time outside work with our much loved families. We appreciate life in the veterinary world is very different now and we have embraced that and moved with the times, this is very evident in the way we do things our own way. If you would like to know more about us and why we are different, drop us an email or feel free to give us a call.
More about us
We are a five Vet and five Nurse team with eight support staff, we also have the luxury of a sister practice 15 minutes’ drive away with another two Vets and four Nurses – so a huge support network. Our team are genuinely lovely and very supportive, we treat each other like family and always have each other’s backs. We value each colleague’s ideas and opinions and welcome these regularly at our practice meetings, clinical catch ups and coffee chats.
Our nursing team specifically has a wealth of experience and we have the perfect environment for someone just starting out to someone with years already under their belt. Our nurse’s ideas and opinions are valued hugely within the team and they have great influence on the day to day running of the practice. Our communication is excellent and we appreciate how important this is to allow things to run smoothly and to create a happy team.
We also know each person is different and what inspires and motivates one person, doesn’t necessarily do the same for someone else, that’s why we tailor our packages and rotas to each individual colleague to make it personal. We believe in being flexible, understanding and compassionate and we pride ourselves on this. We truly have a wonderful team so finding the ‘right’ person is very important to us.
Jemma Curran Head Nurse
I’ve been with Vets4pets Ayr for almost 6 years now and I can honestly say I’ve enjoyed every challenge first option work has to offer. I’ve been able to grow as an RVN and implement many of my own ideas for better standards of patient care, I have also had the opportunity and to get to know our wonderful clients really well. The case load is a great combination of ECC, theatre nursing and client education in consultation. Every day is different and exciting, you really need to utilise all your RVN knowledge. I adore the team I work with as they are always so supportive and encouraging.
