Our client has a boutique village practice with strong links to the local community, and a supportive client base. They are now looking for a Full Time Registered Veterinary Nurse to join them.

The practice is on the picturesque South Coast, with great transport links to lots of cities including Chichester, Winchester, and London, but lots of beaches, forests, and hills nearby for outdoorsy types. 

They have a modern renovated building with two consultation rooms, prep and theatre, digital x-ray including dental x-ray, a new ultrasound, full Idexx lab and a 'quiet room` with sofas for longer consultations such as Class IV laser therapy or euthanasia’s. The dog and cat wards are separate for patient care and they have an incubator and Bair Hugger for post operative use. The emphasis is on gold standard client care whilst ensuring happy staff with a good work/life balance.  They have a team of 3 veterinary surgeons, with 4 RVNs, 1 SVN and 2 VCAs. The reception is staffed by 3 experienced team members who assist the practice manager with many aspects of client care and administration. One of the vets has a surgical certificate and they are all keen to help their RVNs excel in their own interests within their careers: one of the nurses has just completed an ECC certificate.

You will be covering all aspects of this vital job, including consultations, operating, lab work, supporting the student nurses and VCAs, Schedule 3 work, laser therapy and more. There is the possibility for progression into a Head Nurse position for the right candidate.  They are looking for a qualified, registered RVN with at least 3 years’ experience for this role; someone who is comfortable working in a collaborative team and happy to carry out consultations, anaesthetics, clinics etc. Someone who is keen to progress quickly to a Head Nurse role would be desirable.

The client is open to being flexible in terms of days and shift patterns and can offer up to 40 hours a week. Saturday mornings on a rota system (usually around 1:5) is the only weekend work, and the OOH is covered by Vetsnow. Salary up to £30,000 depending on experience.
