We are working with an excellent small animal veterinary practice in Bristol, Avon that is looking for a Registered Veterinary Nurse to join them on a full-time permanent basis. This well-established surgery is looking for an experienced and confident RVN to join a fantastic and friendly team.

The Practice:

Our client is a leading independent veterinary group in Bristol and across the four surgeries, they have excellent facilities and up-to-date equipment so that they can provide comprehensive medical and surgical services.

They are equipped with separate sterile operating theatres with digital x-ray, on-site blood testing facilities along with a portable ultrasound machine, ECG and endoscopy. This means that, in most cases, pets can be treated quickly and effectively within the group. However, if referrals are necessary, they have excellent relationships with a range of referral specialists who are able to advise on the best option for patients.

The Role:

This is a permanent full-time position working 38 hours per work (part-time applications would also be considered) with a weekday shift pattern of:

  • One half-day 08:30-13:30.
  • Two days 08:30-18:30
  • Rest of the week 08:30-16:00/17:00

The weekend working pattern is one in four Saturdays and with no out of hours which ensures that you have a great work/life balance.

The Candidate:

Our client is looking to expand their friendly and experienced team that is valued and empowered by the practice to be the best they can be. They are looking for an RVN that is excited to develop within their role to the maximum. You will be a friendly and experienced RVN that enjoys working as part of a team but is also able to work under your own initiative. You will have good all-round nursing skills and be committed to providing a high standard of care and support to clients.
