We are looking for a motivated and enthusiastic Night Veterinary Nurse to join our dedicated and supportive team. Working through the night, you will provide gold-standard care to our in-patients, take phone calls, offer advice and communicate with our own vets who are off site, but on call. Emergency surgery as necessary. Current rota is 7 nights on, 7 nights off however we are open to discuss other flexible options to suit you.
Based in the heart of the Oxfordshire countryside, Hart Vets is an ideal place to live and work, close to all amenities and only half an hour from London by train. Hart Vets is dedicated to providing quality health care with compassion. We like our patients to see the same vet whenever possible. We care for your pets the same way we would want our own pets to be cared for.
We have on-site parking available for clients at both our Bicester Veterinary Hospital and our Waddesdon Vet Surgery, with disabled access to our waiting rooms and consulting areas. Our surgeries are air-conditioned and we have separate dog and cat areas so that our patient environment remains calm. Unlike most veterinary practices, we have a nurse awake caring for our patients at our Bicester Veterinary Hospital every night, as well as having a vet on call. Our dedicated night nurses ensure that our patients receive the same high standard of care at night as they do during the day, every day of the year. We are the only veterinary practice in the area that employs dedicated night nurses to work throughout the night caring for our patients.
Most of our clients live locally in the Bicester – Aylesbury area, but many of our clients come from nearby towns and villages including Oxford, Kidlington, Thame, Brackley, Banbury, Buckingham, Winslow and Milton Keynes. Hart Vets is one of only approximately 150 veterinary practices in the country that have achieved the standard necessary to be accredited as a small animal veterinary hospital.
We have a wide range of equipment available to you at all times including:
• Philips iu22 Abdominal Ultrasound
• Philips ie33 Cardiac Ultrasound
• Range of digital endoscopy
• Multiparameter monitoring including capnography & blood pressure at all stations
• Full range of Idexx lab equipment
We have a team of 13 full time equivalent vets, 13 nurses and two dedicated night nurses. We have a culture or excellence at Hart Vets where nothing is too much trouble for our clients and their pets. Well-being is very much at the heart of our ethos and that extends to every single member of the team.
The ideal candidate will be compassionate, a good communicator, efficient, diligent and hard-working. You will possess leadership qualities, be capable and organised and be able to work sole charge.
