Your role and responsibilities
We are seeking a Registered Veterinary Nurse (RVN) who is looking to increase our nurse consults. Join our amazing team and we will consider both full and part-time requirements. Full-time is 40 hours and Part-time ideally 2 days with one of those being a late shift (11 am – 8 pm) and the ability to cover on-call. Our days are based on 8 hours with a 1:5 weekend rota.
We would describe ourselves as a bonded team who regularly socialize together and have a collaborative culture across the whole practice. We believe in full nurse utilization which affords our nursing community the ability to get involved in all areas of practice life and empowers them to work towards their goals. We are passionate about you having your own responsibilities and support specialization allowing for the huge scope to progress in your chosen area.
The senior leadership team openly listens and takes on board the nursing team's ideas to develop and grow our team, services, and business. We operate an open-door policy and champion our team to support them in all areas that we possibly can.
Although we have an on-call rota, we look after our team covering these hours and give back this time so you can fully appreciate a work/life balance. For a weekend on-call, you will work the late shift on Friday (11 am – 8 pm) be on call overnight (accommodation on site if required), Saturday clinic 8:30 – 1:30 pm, and then on call through to Monday morning. After your weekend on-call, you will have the following Friday a small shift of 8 am – 11 am, and then the rest of Friday and the Weekend is your time. We also appreciate that some on-call shifts can be more arduous than others and if we can, will allow shorter hours to account for this on the following Monday.
