Here at Lloyd & Cowan we are pleased to be working with a practice who are looking for a dedicated Registered Veterinary Nurse to join their amazing team. Their Nurses are rota'd to set shifts per day including ops nurse, inpatient nurse, consulting nurse and floating nurse.

Rota patterns that work for you:

Their flexible approach to rota patterns and working hours offers a balance that truly flexes with you and your lifestyle no matter what stage you are in your career.

They have some nurses that work 4 long days and some that work 4.5 days slightly shorter a week so they can be slightly flexible with this. The opening hours are from 8.00am-7.30pm. There will be 1 in 6 weekends which are currently from 8.30am-5pm. There are no out of hours but inpatient duties (one per nurse per week) for any emergencies that come in late. They are then usually transferred to their OOH provider when stable to do so.


Oundle is a beautiful rural town in Northamptonshire with excellent transport links within the neighbouring city of Peterborough. While so close to the convenience of the city, Oundle promotes a beautiful countryside lifestyle with many lovely little coffee shops, boutiques etc.

The practice:

This surgery is a lovely small animal practice with great equipment and facilities including Xray, ultrasound, multiparameter, ECG, inhouse lab machines. It is part of a 5-site group (Sampson Park) so there is a brilliant opportunity for learning.

Currently they have 6/7 Veterinary Surgeons, 5 Registered Veterinary Nurses, 2 Veterinary Care Assistants and a full Reception team. They take part in local events such as dog shows and they pride themselves in focussing on wellbeing and team engagement.
