Our client is a hospital status practice, home to a brand new CT scanner, dental suite, new and improved canine kennels, ISFM gold standard cat kennels, dedicated isolation facilities and four operating theatres. They are now looking for a Full Time RVN to join their team.

Within the hospital team they regularly perform ultrasonography, cardiology and orthopaedic surgeries.  The practices are based in the peaceful towns, just 15 minutes from the historic city of Norwich and less than an hour from some of the best beaches the UK has to offer.

Currently there are 34 Veterinary Surgeons, 41 Registered Veterinary Nurses, 5 Student Veterinary Nurses, 9 Animal Nursing Assistants and 30+ Support staff. Many of their Vets and Nurses are certificate holders in multiple disciplines. As part of their commitment to giving back, they support several charities. They are proud to run the Norwich division of StreetVet from their Veterinary Hospital, headed up by their super vet. StreetVet is a charity that provides essential veterinary care to the animals of those experiencing homelessness, for which many of the team volunteer. The team regularly fundraise with quiz and chips nights, with the most recent event in January raising over £2,000. They support Dogs Trust and regularly welcome their resident dogs to attend hydrotherapy sessions at the practice, and they take great satisfaction in knowing that they are making a positive difference in the lives of these animals.

Candidates will also work one day at week at a local branch practice nearby. This is a one-vet branch surgery offering personal and high-quality services including surgical procedures and an in-house laboratory. The practice is also home to a luxury veterinary-led cattery and an excellent hydrotherapy and physiotherapy service.

The Hospital is seeking a Registered Veterinary Nurse to expand their team as they enter the very exciting final stages of their hospital expansion. The role will be mostly based at hospital, with one day at the branch. They believe this really does offer the best of both worlds. The candidate will be able to utilise their clinical skills within the different areas of the hospital and enjoy getting to form strong bonds with clients and their pets in a branch practice environment.

The position will require a motivated, compassionate and driven Nurse to assist with anaesthesia, surgery and diagnostic processes. Duties will also include nurse consultations, laboratory work and inpatient care. An interest in orthopaedics would be derisable but not essential. This is a full-time role working 38.5 hours per week over 4 days. There are no out of hours. Salary is up to £31k pa DOE.
