We are continuously aiming to provide the highest standards of medical and surgical care for our patients within a caring and compassionate environment.
Our team consists of over 60 Registered Veterinary Nurses (RVN) and 31 recognised specialists in surgery, internal medicine, ophthalmology, oncology, neurology, cardiology, dentistry, diagnostic imaging and anaesthesia.
Your role and responsibilities
We require a full-time RVN to join our day nursing team as a rotational nurse. Shifts run between 7.30am to 8.30pm Monday to Friday, with weekend duties once every 6 weeks on a 40 hour/week basis.
We have a team of night nurses, so there will be no regular night shifts. Referral experience is not essential as full training is given within a comprehensive induction programme.
As our services continue to expand, we have exciting opportunities available for RVNs. Nursing Pathways, our innovative new nursing structure, places an emphasis on individualised career progression opportunities, whilst maintaining and developing your veterinary nursing skills.
This is an opportunity not to be missed for friendly, enthusiastic nurses wishing to develop their career.
