We are currently recruiting for a lovely privately owned practice based in the Windsor area of Berkshire. They are looking for a full time, permanent Registered Veterinary Nurse to join their hardworking team!

The Practice:

The practice is well equipped with an array of facilities and services to provide the highest standard of veterinary care possible. Their state-of-the-art facilities include; two operating theatres - one dedicated to soft tissue surgery and the other is specifically for orthopaedic surgery, dental equipment, in-house laboratory, imaging suite, ECG, Ultrasound, Ophthalmoscope and Tonopen and separate dog and cat wards. As well as treating first opinion cases they also take on second opinion and referral cases. 

They are a friendly and professional team of 7 veterinary surgeons, 10 nurses, and reception staff.

The Role and Candidate:

The nurses run on a generous rota which consists of a varied role between kennels, theatre, lab/clinics, one-night duty a week, and a weekend shift every 3-4 weekends. The day shifts vary from 08:00-17:00 to 09:30-18:30 and the night shifts start at 16:00 and end 10:00 the next day, the team looks after the inpatients, take calls and see emergencies.

The weekends run from 9.30 am to 9.30 am (24hours) Saturday and Sunday, and you will get a day back in lieu the following week for this.

Their nurses are very hands-on and our client supports them through additional courses once qualified, they have both quiet and busy days like most places but on average have a few inpatients and 5+ day procedures.

The Package:

The salary on offer is negotiable for the right candidate and the CPD allowance is too, dependent on the benefit to both practice and candidate.
