We are looking for a Registered Veterinary Nurse to join our team! The role is manageably busy with a variety of first opinion cases, assisting vets to the maximum potential of experience as well as running Nurse Clinics. One of the many diagnostic tools available is the Laser, which is under the direct responsibility of a Registered Veterinary Nurse. The successful candidate will be sharing cases and workload with several colleagues who have been with the practice across many years between them, each with a diverse range of experience. The role will include using state of the art facilities within a new clinical suite which was built only 5 years ago.
This is a full-time position working 4/5 days per week plus 1 in 3 Saturday mornings. No OOH. Salary is DOE.
The original practice has been established for over 170 years and has kept up with the times. The Brantham building was new in 1999 and substantially extended in 2016. It is situated on the Suffolk Essex border, one mile from a main line station, which is one hour from London. It is a peaceful place to work and situated alongside Constable Country. Facilities have been upgraded to state of the art with the new Clinical Suite including ultrasound, endoscopy, laser, digital X-Ray developer, dental X-Ray, Idexx blood testing equipment, as well as the usual day to day diagnostic tools. The multi-parameter monitor is in regular use.
We have a team of 7 Nurses and traditionally 6 FTE Vets with excellent support staff.. They are all flexible and team players, with the common goal of both looking after the client's pets as well as helping and supporting each other. There is 1 Certificate Holder at Hadleigh, 9 miles away and the Clinical Director at that practice has extensive orthopaedic experience. An external Cardiologist visits at least monthly.
Highcliff Vets has taken part in local Shows and Charity events and will return to them once they re-open. There is mutual respect for all, the philosophy being that everyone’s role is equally important, each simply has different responsibilities.
We are looking for someone ideally with post qualification experience but equally suited to a nurse who has just qualified and wants a fresh start in a different practice. A background in first opinion small animal work is essential. You will be enthusiastic to learn more, take on responsibility and want to build on current knowledge
