Full or Part Time Registered Veterinary Nurse - East Lothian


Julie Powell
Our client has a Small Animal veterinary practice based in East Lothian, with the main surgery and branch surgery situated close to each other. They are now looking for a Full or Part Time Registered veterinary Nurse to join the team.

Based in a great part of Scotland as East Lothian is predominantly rural; it has 40 miles of wild coastline where small, beautiful towns lie along the coast of the Firth of Forth. The coast has several headlands and bays, most notably Gosford Bay, Aberlady Bay, Gullane Point, and Torness Point. The practice is well placed and have great links to Edinburgh and Glasgow and a thriving community keen to take advantage of the practice services.

The growing team consists of 3 Veterinary Surgeons, 2 Registered Veterinary Nurses, 2 Animal Care Assistants, and 3 Receptionists across the two sites. The team works well together to provide an outstanding level of customer service and patient care. They are friendly and outgoing, teamwork is important to them, no matter what your role. Each member of the team brings something unique to the practice and enjoys working in a supportive and encouraging environment!

Every day is different and your caseload will include a real mix of first opinion work including orthopedics, dentistry, soft tissue surgery as well as medicine cases. You will share consults and surgery with the rest of the team and have the opportunity to develop your own cases in line with your interests – an interest in pain management or other skills would be advantageous but not essential.

The practice is keen to promote flexibility and your needs will be fully integrated into the working of the practice. They are open to accept both full/part-time applications and will consider any combination of shifts for the right candidate. There is a requirement to work 1:3 Saturday mornings between 9 am-12 pm and there is no out-of-hours work as this is covered by Vets Now.
