Our client has a group of 56 practices including a RCVS accredited small animal hospital near Chelmsford and are looking for a RVN to join the team.

Three of these branches are ‘stand-alone’ with facilities to image and operate. The other two branches are ‘consulting only’ branches which feed into the main hospital. The hospital has a full in-house lab, separate isolation, cat and dog wards. There is an orthopaedic theatre, lots of surgical kit including laparoscopic equipment and various endoscopes. All x-ray machines are digital, three of the sites have an ultrasound machine. They are also proud to be an ISFM Cat Friendly Clinic as well as a RWAF Rabbit Friendly Clinic.

The main hospital is in walkable distance to a main line train station for easy access to London and is within driving distance to the East coast. There is a good mixture of surrounding countryside and town and they are only half an hour to Stanstead airport.

There is a fantastic, friendly team of Vets, Nurses, and Support Staff, that have a wide range of interests, and who provide support to each other whilst working within the busy clinics. Many of the clinical staff hold or are working towards further qualifications. The Nurses enjoy lots of responsibility within the practice, allowing the vets the time to concentrate on their clinical skills and client care. They are a training practice and like to be involved in supporting the next cohort of vets and nurses.

The group are well known in the area and are active in the community, and often sponsor local events. Although this a big team, they are close knit, with many members of staff having been with them for many, many years. They also like to let their hair down regularly with a good party or just by celebrating each other’s personal event.

The successful candidate would be responsible for conducting Nurse clinics at a local branch for maximum of 4 hours a session, 3 days a week per branch. The rest of the time will be spent at the main hospital conducting nurse clinics and maintaining clinical skills in the clinical areas such as theatre, X-ray, wards and lab etc. The rota will include working 40 hours per week over 5 days inclusive of a 1:7 Saturday morning rota. Main shifts are between 7:30am-7:30pm Monday to Friday working at the branches.

Salary is up to £30k pa depending on experience plus additional benefits.
