We have a fantastic opportunity for an experienced Registered Veterinary Nurse to join a specialist practice near Kendal in Cumbria on a permanent basis.

The Practice:

This specialist practice enjoys a very busy and varied caseload, including soft tissue surgery, physiotherapy, acupuncture, and orthopaedic services. The current team comprises of 6 Vets, 11 Nurses, and 2 SVNs. They have a purpose-built state of the art facilities with a friendly professional team that supports the surgeons - but more importantly, there are always extra cuddles for the patients and a welcoming cup of tea on arrival.

They currently see around 1000 newly referred cases per year and have seen over 6000 cases since the business was started in 2008. All of the cases have been referred to them by other veterinary practices that trust them to treat their clients' animals. They are frequently asked to assess and treat dogs and cats belonging to vets themselves.

They aim to make the referral process simple and effortless for both referring practices and clients. Prompt friendly advice when required - most importantly a voice at the end of the phone that can help.

The Role:

This is a full-time permanent position with the exact working pattern to be discussed at interview.

Our client sees this as a critical role in the provision of high standards of client and patient care. The purpose of this position is to work alongside all the nursing teams. Guidance, support, and coordination of qualified, training nursing staff and veterinary nursing assistants are important aspects of the role.

You will be working closely with other personnel at all times, which is essential in order to ensure the smooth running of the theatres. The high standards of patient care are to be maintained at all times, with all nursing staff being jointly responsible for effective stock control and rotation.

In return, our client is offering a competitive salary (DOE), 5 weeks annual leave + Bank holidays (pro-rata), CPD allowance, Pension, etc.

The Candidate:

Our client is looking for a skilled and enthusiastic Registered Veterinary Nurse to join their fantastic team.

You should have at least 1-2 years of experience and be a strong team player with good communication skills. You will be joining an experienced team so a can-do attitude and a desire to progress will be an advantage.
