We are working on behalf of an RCVS accredited mixed animal practice based in West Cheshire who is looking to recruit a permanent Registered Veterinary Nurse.

The Practice:

This mixed practice is at the heart of the community in rural Cheshire and has been operating for over 75 years. As well as covering their local area, they provide a service much further afield - onto the Wirral, North Wales, Crewe, Nantwich and into Shropshire. They pride themselves on their professional attitude, alongside a compassionate, friendly approach. Some of their services and facilities include:-

  • Extensive In-House Blood Testing
  • Urinanalysis
  • Dentals
  • Ultrasonography
  • Digital X-ray
  • Separate Dog and Cat and Wards
  • Home Visits by Appointment

The current team comprises of 6 Vets, 7 Nurses, 1 VCA and 7 Receptionists/Administrators who all aim to maintain the highest standards of care and professional performance.

The Role:

This is a full-time role working 37.5 hours per week between 08.00-19.00, rotating between shifts of 08.00-16.00, 08.00-16.30 and 10.00-19.00. After an induction period, the role will involve working 1 in 5 weekends which will include:-

Weekend 1

On call from Friday 19.00 to Monday 08.00

08.00-13.00 Saturday working at the practice

09.00-11.00 Sunday working at the practice

Weekend 2

08.00-13.00 Saturday working at the practice

The role may also include an element of Out of Hours weeknight shifts on a rota basis in the future.

Whilst the practice is mixed, this role will work predominantly within the small animal side of the business. Our client is offering a competitive salary and benefits package, subject to experience, including:-

  • Summer and Christmas bonus scheme
  • 28 days holiday including Bank Holidays - this will rise in line with service
  • Workplace pension scheme
  • Staff uniform
  • Staff pet discounts
  • Heathshield benefits (cashback for dental, optical and physio costs plus wellness services)
