Full Time Small Animal Registered Veterinary Nurse near Bicester


Julie Powell
Our client is a RCVS Accredited Small Animal Hospital, which has been caring for pets since 1993. They are now looking for a Full Time Registered Veterinary Nurse to join the team.

The surgeries have been designed to provide the highest quality of care using the latest technology for diagnosis and treatment and they have purpose-built facilities across their sites, including Digital x-ray, Idexx diagnostic machines, dental suite, and modern anesthetic monitoring equipment. They have on-site parking available for clients at both sires, with disabled access to waiting rooms and consulting areas. The surgeries are air-conditioned, and they have separate dog and cat areas so that the patient environment remains calm. Many of the clients come from nearby towns and villages.

Between the two sites, there are 10 FTE vets; 18 Registered Veterinary Nurses, 2 Student Veterinary Nurses and 12 Support staff. The of our vets has a surgery certificate and one is working towards hers. The vets have a wide range of interests from surgery to dermatology and ECC. This is a very happy, supportive practice that takes well-being very seriously.

They are now looking for a dedicated RVN who put their patients at the heart of everything they do. You would be working alongside 12 experienced and professional nurses, as part of a fast-growing practice that strives to deliver excellence in customer service as well as gold standard veterinary care. The vets rely implicitly on the nurses to support them, often asking them to draw blood, take x-rays, and much more. They hold twice daily Clinical Rounds where nurse’s input is invaluable, giving the team excellent job satisfaction when they can help make decisions on their charges' care.

You will work 40 hours across 4 days per week, with 1:5/1:6 weekends, sharing operating, consulting, and inpatient duties.

The successful RVN will be a dynamic veterinary nurse who wants to make a difference, you will go the extra mile and service their loyal clients and bond new ones to the surgery.

You must be an organised, enthusiastic, motivated individual who will slot into the team from day one. You will strive for excellence and want to pass on the benefit of your knowledge to other staff members, they will happily support any further study/certificates in your chosen discipline. You will be as comfortable in the consulting room as in the theatre and thrive in both environments.
