Your role and responsibilities
A typical day at Maven sees an interesting and varied caseload. There are a variety of 8-hour shifts to ensure nurses have the opportunity to rotate through their various disciplines. Our nurses are highly skilled and highly valued. They actively participate in daily rounds and monthly team meetings, all working towards improving patient care. They are able to utilise their skills in managing in-patients, Schedule 3 procedures, anaesthesia, surgery and consulting. They are encouraged and supported to follow their passions and drive their careers.
We are committed to training the next generation of nurses, and therefore, a Clinical Coach qualification would be advantageous, however, encouragement and training would be given to those without previous coaching experience.
To enable us to fully support our students, we are looking for an RVN with at least 1 year’s post qualification experience.
Sarah Brennan RVN:
"I have been at Maven for over 10 years, what makes me stay is the support I have always received from the practice, both management and the other teams. We really are one big family, and everyone gets on very well. We work to a high standard and our patients receive nothing but the best care. Both within and across the teams everyone is very much willing to help each other and enjoy sharing our experiences and learning along the way".
Laura Underwood VCA:
I joined Maven as I have always wanted to work with animals and Maven looked like a great place to work, after going to the website and having a nose around I was more sure I wanted to work here. I stay at Maven because we have a fantastic team and all of us work together and care about each other whether we are reception, nurses, VCAs, vets or management. Maven really encourages VCAs to keep learning even if we want to stay as a VCA and not move up to nursing, they really care about our input and how we can be utilised more for the smooth running of the practice.
