We are currently looking for an RVN to join our friendly team based across our two practices in Oswestry and Wrexham and are seeking someone who has a passion for animal welfare, is confident and appreciates the importance of client care. We would be willing to consider either full or part-time applicants.
We offer a competitive salary of up to £26,000 depending on experience.
Our main practice has hospital status, and as such we see a wide variety of interesting caseloads with a good mix of surgery and medicine. Our nurses carry out a variety of duties including anaesthesia, nurse consults, inpatient care, lab work, administration work and more, so we would welcome applicants who wish to focus more on their specific area of interest.
Our branch practice In Wrexham holds vet and nurse consultations, and we also escort pets to and from here using our pet ambulance to have surgery or hospitalisation in the main practice. Our nurses rotate between this practice in Wrexham and our Oswestry site, so the successful applicant will be required to have a Full UK driving license to enable them to drive practice vehicles.
As a fun, close-knit team of 12 veterinary surgeons, 7 registered veterinary nurses, 3 nursing students, 2 veterinary care assistants, 9 reception staff, plus a cleaner and a handyman, there is always an excellent support network available. We have also supported Mental Health Research UK since its inception, raising nearly £20,000 so far, and there is a great social side to the practice, with many out-of-work events being arranged on a regular basis for those who wish to attend.
There is a requirement to contribute towards our shared on-call rota, which will include one weekend in eight and one sleep-in shift per week. The sleep-in shifts are paid by the hour, and an additional bonus is provided if any nursing duties are completed out-of-hours. In addition to financial benefits for on-call, we also provide spacious, pet-friendly on-site accommodation, which includes a kitchen, bathroom, and several bedrooms which our nurses are encouraged to make homely.
Benefits - Subject to Pro Rata:
- 28 days annual leave including bank holidays
- 2 paid CPD days
- L&D opportunities through the IVC Evidensia Academy
- Enhanced family-friendly policies, including maternity/paternity/adoption/shared parental and surrogacy pay
