Job Details

Due to wonderful baby boom and some of our talented RVNs taking some time out to travel, we are looking for an RVN with some experience to join us here at Lanes Vets.

We are a very progressive, flexible and forward-thinking practice and are in a great position to offer the right candidate an excellent opportunity to grow in a supportive environment

Our team are everything to us and everybody matters! Our health and well-being team ensure all sensible suggestions to make our work-life better, are always considered. We even run regular stress assessments to check in with you and have the fantastic duo of Julie and Jackie, our off-site counsellors ready to step in if you need them at any time. Supporting this initiative is the wonderful Tilly who travels round the branches every other month to offer you a massage in the work-place. That’s right – a massage. At work. Just pop your name on the list and your work shift will be adjusted that day for your spot.


Here is what Oliva Brankin, one of our fabulous RVNs, has to say about working with us…’I started to work at Lanes vets as a newly qualified RVN about 18 months ago, the other nurses took me under the wing and helped boost my confidence. Whilst being at Lanes I have been able to broaden my nursing knowledge with an exciting case load and lot of CPD opportunities!’.

Basically, what we are trying to say is that Lanes Vets is the "mutts nuts" (and Lord knows we've removed enough!).

Enough about us, what about the job?

All our branches are fully equipped to a very high standard and we are committed to providing exceptional care for our patients and clients as well as our team. Work-life balance is a priority, so we have designed a very civilised weekend rota.  However, if you’d like to get involved in more of the weekend hospital shifts (which are paid at a higher rate) there are always extra shifts up for grabs!

We are looking for a team player who wants to get involved with all aspects of nursing. There is scope to take a hold of and run with nurse clinics if you would like, as well as plenty of opportunity to get involved with our visiting referral surgeons in orthopaedics, cardiology and soft-tissue surgery  If you are interested in further study, we have the perfect case load to be able support certificates in anaesthesia, ECC and advanced nursing. Ideally we’d like for you to be able to take on some Clinical Coach responsibilities and you would be assigned specific afternoons with your student and be rota’d on with them regularly.


Our current full-time RVNs work a 37.5 hour week and we are more than happy to chat about how you would like this to look – do you prefer 4 slightly longer days with one day off per week? Or do 5 shorter days’ work better for you? We are open to discussing everything!

We are offering a salary starting at £18,000 - £26,000 plus additional benefits of:

  • Professional membership fees paid for
  • Generous CPD allowance – certificates are encouraged, supported and fully funded
  • Company sick pay, pension and generous staff discount
  • Your birthday off
  • Lots of social events, brilliant work colleagues and plenty of cake!

We are situated south of Lancaster, on the edge of the Trough of Bowland and are only 30 minutes from the Lake District and one hour from both Manchester and Liverpool so there is plenty to explore and do whether you prefer the peace of the Lakes or the bustle of the city.

We are always looking for ways to become more sustainable and have just set up our ‘green team’ for investors in the environment, who are busy planting lots of wildlife friendly plants at the practices and making sure we recycle everything we can. The hospital and one branch already have solar panels installed and our uniforms are made from plastic bottles!

One thing you don’t ever have to worry about at Lanes is our sociable side...we are forever getting together and notoriously throw the best Christmas parties ever. If last years ‘Lanes Fest’ (where we all camped and had a festival in one of the directors gardens!) wasn’t enough, we are getting ready for this years ‘Lanes Olympics’ – egg and spoon race anyone?

We are forever getting involved in the community and spend lots of time fundraising for charities such as Blue Sky Stroke Association and Sue Ryder. We have even begun a trip around the world…we set up a Strava running group with the aim of each of us running so many miles, which together add up to the distance around the world! On the 4th August we will have a stationary bike set up in one of the practices so everyone can do 20 minutes each to help us finish our goal together!

If you fancy joining our super talented and really social team, please don’t hesitate to get in touch for an informal chat, or click the apply button now!
