Veterinary Nurse



Job description

We are looking for a Head Nurse for a new exciting opportunity in the London region. This is a role for an ambitious and energetic leader who can remain calm in a fast-paced environment. Ideally, candidates need at least 3 years experience as an RVN in a busy practice, as well as an ability to lead and motivate a large team.

The practice is a spacious, purpose-built, well equipped clinic with 6 vets, 9 nurses and VCAs, 4 receptionists, a Clinical Director and a Centre Director to lead from the front, and help the right candidate develop in their career.

The major difference is that the Head Nurse doesn't manage reception as the practice has a Customer Care Manager, which is great for the future Head Nurse who will be able to focus on delivering gold standard patient care.


The Person

The Head Nurse would be part of the Centre Leadership team and would participate in meetings and join the Clinical Director, Client Care Manager and me in setting the forward strategy for the centre.

Due to the complexity of the walk-in model, the Head Nurse needs to be agile and solution focused, and I would expect them to be able to give examples of how they have demonstrated these skills in the past. We also need them to be fantastic clinically so they can develop and inspire their team.
