We are looking for a motivated and enthusiastic Registered Veterinary Nurse to join a friendly, independent practice situated in Tunbridge Wells, Kent.

The Practice: 

Established in the 1980s, our client is an independent 100% small animal practice who also occasionally take on patients from the local wildlife charity. The practice has been modernised and is fully equipped with modern diagnostic and surgical facilities including but not limited to blood pressure monitoring, X-Ray, ultrasound, ECG, in-house laboratory, dental equipment, hospitalisation facilities and an in-house pharmacy. The practice has on and off road parking and is close to a local park. 

You will be joining a team of 3 Vets - 2 Part-time, 1 Full-time, 1 Nurse and a receptionist. They work well as a team and continually update their knowledge and skills to provide the best service to their clients and patients

The Role: 

The position is flexible depending on your needs but will be up to 40 hours per week. The shifts are a mixture of 10:00-19:00, 8:30-16:00 or 9:30–15:30. The weekend rota is 1 in 3 Saturday mornings 8:30–12:00, with no out of hours. You will be required to participate in a mixture of general nursing and reception duties.
