We are working on behalf of a long-established, independent veterinary group, providing veterinary care throughout Wiltshire and Gloucestershire. Our client is looking to recruit a full-time, permanent Registered Veterinary Nurse to join its growing team of 12 Vets and 14 Nurses.

The Practice:

This modern practice has been established in the local area for more than 70 years and has a number of local branch surgeries and operating theatres nearby. Recently extended, their facilities include:

  • New prep and recovery area
  • Dental theatre
  • Diagnostic imaging suite
  • Glass-walled theatre
  • X-ray
  • Ultrasonography
  • ECG
  • Endoscopy
  • Laparoscopy
  • Bronchoscopy

The Role:

This is a permanent, full-time role, working 8-hour rolling shifts with 1 hour for lunch. Weekends will be on a rota of 1 in 10, working varied shifts of Saturday/Sunday 08.00-20.00, Sunday - Monday 20.00-08.00 and Saturday 08.30-12.00. Typical duties include theatre work, in-patient care and clinical care in consultations. There will be a small amount of branch work required so you should hold a valid driving licence and some sole charge whilst on nights so you should also be comfortable with this. In return, our client is offering a competitive salary and benefits package, subject to experience, including a CPD allowance of £500, pension and 20+ days holiday.

The Candidate:

 Ideally, you will have at least 1-year experience, however, our client will happily consider candidates with less experience if they have the right skills. You should have the ability to work well as part of a team, good communication skills and general nursing skills. The ideal candidate will be hardworking, friendly and have a good sense of humour.
