Job Details

Exciting new opportunity for 2022. We are seeking an RVN, to join our team and support our two vets in this small, friendly, practice in Highbury, North London which is an ISFM accredited Cat Friendly Clinic.  This role is an ideal next career step for an RVN looking to take on their first senior role (fully supported by CPD), looking after a small team, and coaching an experienced SVN, or for an existing Senior RVN looking for a new role with a good work-life balance.

We are positioned in an attractive area near Islington adjacent to Canonbury overground station. You’ll be working alongside an experienced and compassionate team who have a passion for building strong bonds with their clients in a London ‘village’ environment. Next year is going to see further financial investment into our branch and you would be involved right from the start with our exciting plans.

The role is an average of 33 hours per week and a day off every Wednesday. weekend cover is 1:4 Saturday afternoons only, with no nights or on-call as this service is provided by our Wanstead Hospital.  If you enjoy establishing strong relationships with colleagues, clients, and patients and have an enthusiasm for first opinion care and providing great advice to clients who see us as trusted advisers, this is the role for you. If you believe that life is better with pets, then our practice culture and the Highbury branch could be just right for you.

We offer an excellent benefits package including increasing holiday allowance based on length of service, enrolment on to our Simply Health Cashback Plan which provides cashback/refunds on many routine medical costs such as dental care, physiotherapy, optician, chiropractor fees, and other medical needs, plus generous shopping and leisure discounts, fully funded CPD and paid for BVNA and RCVS registration fees.

Goddard Veterinary Group has 44 branches, 3 hospitals, and our own nursing college.
