Permanent Consulting Registered Veterinary Nurse - Greater Manchester

We are currently working with a well-established, growing and highly rated RCVS accredited veterinary practice based in the Greater Manchester area. They are currently experiencing an exciting period of growth and development, and as result, they have a fantastic new opportunity available for a confident and proactive Registered Veterinary Nurse to join their team as a Consult Nurse. This role will be predominantly focused on consultations, implementing, and then leading nurse clinics, alongside closely working with the HVN to drive the continued development of the nurses within the team. 

The Practice:

This practice has 2 branches and a team of 5 vets, 5 RVNs, 1 SVN plus support teamwork across each clinic. The branches are well kitted out with great facilities including 4 consult rooms, cat ward, dog ward, operating theatre, digital x-ray, dental x-ray, ultrasound, and access to an endoscope and veterinary equipment to treat orthopaedic patients.

The Role:

It will be a full-time role with a share of Saturday mornings (37.5 hours per week). They are a flexible working practice, as their teams' work-life balance and wellbeing is always a top priority, so if this is of interest they’d love to discuss the specifics further with you. 

If you love the consulting side of nursing and are looking for an opportunity to lead and make real, valued change within a brilliant team – this could be the perfect role for you.

The Candidate:

This is a new role, introduced due to continued growth and therefore it’s important that the successful candidate has the following skills/attributes:

  • RCVS registered 
  • Competent and confident with Schedule 3 under vet direction 
  • Great communication skills 
  • The organisation skills and proactive nature to drive, lead and coordinate nurse clinics 
  • Demonstratable experience with nurse consults, and therefore confident with all aspects of general consultations 
  • Experience in designing and implementing Nurse Clinics in a previous practice will be advantageous but not essential 
  • Quality; the desire to provide a high standard of nurse consultations, to the pets under our care 
  • Integrity; working with the clinical team to drive the strong practice principles that the group adheres to, in an honest manner 
  • Responsibility; for learning and teaching, with the confidence and desire to bring the team together, with the HVN, to regularly upskill and develop 
  • Growth; to expand and progress the current nursing services provided by the clinic 

Salary: Up to £26,000 Dependent on skills and experience (FTE)

Benefits: They have many stand-out benefits available, as an example, their leave benefits are listed below (not just a generous annual leave allowance – paid donation days, wellbeing days, CPD days, paternity leave, birthday off, and more!). Did they mention work-life balance is top of their agenda?

  • Increasing holiday based on length of service 
  • Five fully paid days to volunteer for a charity of your choice 
  • Focus on employee wellbeing with fully paid wellbeing days issued 
  • 3 days paid CPD leave with a £600 CPD allowance per annum, alongside the opportunity for fully funded certificates. 
  • Up to four days PETernity leave, for when that new furry member joins your family 
  • Birthday day off 
  • Enhanced family-friendly policies, including maternity/paternity/adoption/share parental and surrogacy pay 
  • Your pets can benefit from their Complete Wellness Plan too. Up to 3 pets are free on their wellness plan (free consults, vaccinations, flea, worm, and more)
