Office Administrator Phone: 01422 433900 Email: [email protected]

As part of the original set up team for Bright Leaf in 2010 I have recently taken more of an administrative role in the business. I now audit and maintain accurate files for both candidates and clients and look after customer service and credit control.

Prior to Bright Leaf Recruitment I had extensive experience gained in Sales, Insurance, Customer Service and have worked for a large project management company. I also owned and ran another successful business which was sold in 2009 to provide the seed funding for Bright Leaf Recruitment.

Outside work I like to go walking with the family, eat out and I enjoy gardening.

 
 
 
 

All Julie's jobs...

 
Our client has a successful small animal first opinion practice near Fife. They are now looking for a full time Registered Veterinary Nurse to join them.

The practice is based in a beautiful area allowing an excellent quality of life, benefiting from beautiful beaches and charming coastal villages, with huge potential for water sports, cycling and walking. The local schools are excellent.

The practice benefits from being purpose-built, affording a very pleasant working environment with well-maintained facilities. They have well-equipped, spacious operating theatres with multiparameter capnography, BP and ECG; up to date imaging equipment, including dental radiography, DR x-ray, CT scanner and ultrasound. They have the use of in-house haematology, biochemistry and microscopy.

There is a friendly and supportive team of 6 vets, 8 nurses and 5 front of house staff. 2 of the surgeons are European specialists in their field of Small Animal Surgery, many of the other vets are certificate holders too. There are 2 ECC trained nurses as well as a certAVP nurse.

As the shifts allow for a varied rotation, your days are never dull. One day your role will be filled with providing excellent nursing skills to inpatients onwards, discharging referral patients and maintaining a high level of cleanliness throughout the kennel area. The next day you can be enhancing your role within the diagnostic imaging department with the CT scanner or DR x-ray or maybe you will be monitoring anaesthesia in the spacious theatres or getting the chance to be a surgical assistant. Then, for a week in the block you will get to throw yourself into the 1st opinion department, keeping your knowledge fresh and seeing something a bit different to the orthopaedic cases we see.

The nurses currently work a 5 day week, a 1 in 6 Saturday morning and a 1 in 6 weekend, they also receive a long weekend off in lieu of this.

Shift pattern is split between:
• 8am-5pm ward shift
• 9am-6pm referral consult shift
• 8am-5pm/ 10am-7pm referral surgical shift
• 8am-5pm / 9am-6pm 1st opinion shift or a 2pm-10pm late shift.
• No OOH.
