We are working with a small animal practice based near York, North Yorkshire that are looking for two Registered Veterinary Nurses to join their team. The roles are full-time, 37 hours per week on a permanent basis.

The Practice: 

The group is made up of 6 practices around York - you would be primarily based at the main site, but may need to do some branch work. The practice is a training centre and they have a great team of both qualified and non-qualified veterinary nurses. In total there are about 14 nurses across the practices including trainees.

The Role:

This role is full time, working 38 hours per week with a long day (8:00 am-7:00 pm), a short day (8:00 am-1:00 pm) and the remainder 8:00 am-4:00 pm. You get a half day off per week (afternoon). There are No Out of Hours or On Call requirements. 

On the weekend rota of 1:6 Saturday surgeries, you would also be required to cover for inpatient checks (if there was any requirement) which would require you to be on-call - it is very rare that you would get called out but there is a £90 on-call fee and then a further fee for actually being called out. Our client can offer a part-time position depending on the candidate.

The Candidate: 

A team member that is motivated in their profession and keen to develop. They should have good communication skills and be able to demonstrate empathy. It is important that they can integrate into the community and with the veterinary team. A good social life, personal hobbies and a keenness to settle in a new environment would be advantageous and must have a valid driving licence.
