Permanent Referral Registered Veterinary Nurse - Pulborough

Type: Small Animal

Location: Pulborough

Practice: Independent Practice - They are united by a true sense of belonging and purpose; a cultural and emotional significance beyond that of a standard veterinary group.

Facilities: They have excellent facilities, equipment, and team members to uphold their high clinical standards.

Exciting new 2-theatre hospital complete with new CT scanner and rehabilitation suite including an underwater treadmill.

Team: Their people are the driving force behind everything they’ve accomplished - They are looking for someone who

is inspired to join them on this journey, passionate about what they do and the difference they can make to

further, their cause and achieve the vision.


  • Based at their Storrington hospital you will work as a general hospital nurse covering a variety of roles and duties, but with a specialism in referral nursing.
  • This RVN will be the main nurse responsible for overseeing surgical procedures and scopes, whilst ensuring that SDVR procedures are properly planned and prepared.
  • They will liaise with the Lead Nurses to ensure that SDVR procedures have the required rooms, staff, and equipment assigned.
  • They will work closely with the Practice Manager to ensure clients coming in for procedures receive a premium, seamless service.
  • This RVN will be required to support surgeries such as patella luxation surgery, TPLO, fracture repair, BOAS surgery, laparoscopy, and ophthalmic surgery on a regular basis.
  • They should also be happy to integrate with our on-site CT scanner and rehabilitation services, including physiotherapy and underwater treadmill, to maximise patient outcomes.


  • RVNs typically work a 4-day week, totaling 40 hours.
  • Usually working a mixture of shifts (7.30 am-6.30 pm, 8 am-7 pm, and 8.30 am-7.30 pm).
  • Everyone contributes to the daytime weekend rota, bank holiday, and on-call rota; the on-call rota is very rarely used and only as a last resort, as they have otheir own night-teams and twilight RVNs on-site.


  • As they expand their team, they believe this is an exciting and engaging opportunity for the right candidate to use all their nursing skills and experience in a positive environment while becoming integral to the success and growth of the referral service at this early stage in its evolution.
  • As the practice grows and develops, there may be the potential for this role to evolve into a referral-only role in the future.

Salary: Competitive salary from £31,000-£34,000 p/a increasing with experience


  • 7 weeks’ holiday, including bank holidays
  • RCVS and VDS fees paid plus a subscription of your choice
  • £500 CPD allowance; certificates supported & funded above and beyond this
  • Occupational health including mental health support
  • Enhanced parental leave and flexible working policies
