We are working with a well-established small animal practice in Wakefield, West Yorkshire that is looking to recruit an enthusiastic Registered Veterinary Nurse on a full-time permanent basis.

The Practice

Our client has been providing veterinary care to the pets of West Yorkshire for more than 60 years. Originally started as one practice in Wakefield they now have 5 branches supported by their main Hospital, the highest level of accreditation, from the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS). They are very excited to have plans underway for a new site in Wakefield, which will enable them to offer a greater provision of services, including more operating suites and on-site CT scanner. 

They are proud to have a strong community focus, sponsoring many local events and organisations. They have a large friendly team of Veterinary Surgeons, Registered Veterinary Nurses, Animal Nursing Assistants, and Support Teams.

The Role and Candidate

Our client is looking for a friendly and enthusiastic Registered Veterinary Nurse to join their team of 13 Vets, 15 RVN/ 8SVN/ 12 support staff on a full-time permanent basis. You will be based at the main hospital in Wakefield but you will be expected to do shifts across the branches as needed.

The working hours for the role are an average of 40 hours per week, with shifts ranging from 07:30-16:30 to 11:00-20:00. The weekend rota is 1 in every 4 weeks (on average) working either 08:00-17:00 or 11:00-20:00 shift. They have a dedicated night team so night cover is minimal and will only occur for holiday or sickness cover and will be shared across the team.

The Package:

In return for your hard work and commitment, our client is offering a competitive package that includes:

  • The salary is dependent on experience but starting circa £21,000 p/a
  • The holiday allowance is 4 weeks plus bank holidays.
  • Company pension,
  • Sick pay,
  • Healthcare scheme
  • Staff discounts.
