Our client who we are pleased to be working with are seeking a dedicated and ambitious Registered Veterinary Nurse to join their team on a full-time basis. This position involves rotation within their vibrant surgical referral hospital, covering surgery, anaesthesia, wards, imaging, and occasional night shifts. 

About them:

At the practice they handle a diverse range of intriguing orthopaedic cases, including complex fractures, total hip replacement, angular limb deformities, and advanced spinal and soft tissue surgeries. As part of their Specialist-led team, you will actively support all five of their surgeons, providing a unique opportunity to enhance your surgical and anaesthesia skills and knowledge under the guidance of true experts. 

With a team of skilled veterinary surgeons and support staff, they strive to create a compassionate and nurturing environment for both their patients and their owners. As a well-established practice, they are committed to continuous learning and professional development. They have 5 Surgeons (4 Specialists), 2 Residents, 4 Surgical Interns, 15 RVNs, 5 ACAs and 8 Support staff. 

Their nursing team upholds remarkably high clinical care standards for their patients, maintaining effective communication within the hospital team and with pet owners. They are seeking a registered veterinary nurse who aligns with this ethos of the entire team. 

Working Hours:

The existing schedule operates on a 13-week rotation, involving one week of night shifts followed by a full week off. The subsequent 11 weeks include rotating through the hospital on day shifts. Shift times fall between 07:00-15:00 or 12:00-20:00, covering a week at a time of each shift so you can find a routine and plan around work in advance. You may also asked to cover occasional twilight shifts (13:00-21:00) when our twilight nurse is on leave, but this cover is shared across the whole team. Additionally, there is a weekend daytime on-call rota on a 1:13 basis, with enhanced overtime compensation for any called-out instances.

In addition to a competitive salary from £31,000pa, you will benefit from:
