We are working with a client in Harrow, West London that is looking to recruit a full-time Registered Veterinary Nurse to join them in a permanent Head Nurse role.

This practice is a two Vet branch with a nursing team made up of the Head Nurse (that's you!) with three Student Nurses and a PCA/CCA. They are a strong, tight-knit, and welcoming team.
The practice is based in an affluent area and has undergone a recent refurb. The team sees a varied caseload so this role would suit someone who has experience in a diverse role. This role feeds into a 24-hr hospital for all out-of-hours care.

You’ll also be proactive in maintaining your own professional and clinical skills, carry out accurate and timely reporting and explore ways that the practice can further develop its standards.
As an RCVS Registered Veterinary Nurse, you’ll already have good knowledge of how a dynamic, practice runs efficiently and effectively. Sharing our clients' values of being trustworthy, caring and progressive, you’ll also take the initiative in patient welfare and have caring, thoughtful communication skills.
