Permanent Head Veterinary Nurse - Slough, Berkshire

We are working with a small animal veterinary practice in the Slough area of Berkshire that is looking for an experienced Registered Veterinary Nurse to join them as their Head Veterinary Nurse. This is a full-time permanent role.

The Practice:

Our client is a community of passionate veterinary professionals committed to providing truly exceptional care. They are set on building something extraordinary: creating the most forward-thinking and innovative place in the veterinary industry. Their mission to deliver progressive, around-the-clock care means their employees have the very best equipment and treatment options available, including in-house MRI machines and state-of-the-art operating theatres.

They provide ongoing support to their teams, both in practice and through a dedicated training centre. This empowers you to get the very best from the advanced equipment while being on your journey to veterinary excellence.

Although this is a sole vet practice there is a mobile Vet and Graduate Veterinary Surgeons who also visit the practice. You will be supported by a Student Veterinary Nurse and Practice Coordinator/SVN. The clinic feeds into a 24-hr hospital for all out-of-hours care. 

The Role and Candidate:

This is a full-time permanent role where you will be working 40 hours per week with weekends on a 1 in 6 rota, the shifts will be 8 hours between the practice hours.

You will be joining a professional, personable team where you’ll deliver exceptional care by going beyond consulting to listen and empathising, putting patients and clients first, always.

As well as your day-to-day duties within practice caring for your patients and clients, you will have the drive and ambition to develop the practice optimising the client and patient experience, promoting safety while training, developing, and leading the entire nursing team. 

You’ll also be proactive in maintaining your own professional and clinical skills, carry out accurate and timely reporting and explore ways that we can further develop our standards.    

As an RCVS Registered Veterinary Nurse, you’ll already have good knowledge of how a dynamic, practice runs efficiently and effectively. Sharing our values being trustworthy, caring, and progressive, you’ll also take the initiative in patient welfare and have caring, thoughtful communication skills. Just as important are the leadership skills essential to enabling your team to work as one and look ahead to see how they can be even better.
