Permanent Registered Veterinary Nurse, Brighton

Our client has a requirement for two registered veterinary nurses to join their small animal hospital in beautiful Brighton. They are proud of their excellent reputation, which is down to the fantastic and welcoming staff.

They have one maternity-cover vacancy for an all-rounder nurse who loves the variety of veterinary nursing and enjoys being involved in all aspects of patient care. The 2nd vacancy they have is for a surgically biased nurse to be one of their key theatre nurses and help maintain and improve their high clinical standards for surgical patients.

Role: Permanent Registered Veterinary Nurse

Type: Small Animal

Location: Brighton

Practice: Small Animal

Team: RCVS accredited practice with genuinely friendly, approachable managers and directors. Support overnight from a fantastic team of night RVNs and ANAs. Exposure to a wide range of equipment including CT, laparoscopy, and extensive in-house blood machines.


  • On-site Specialists and Advanced Practitioners in cardio-respiratory medicine, imaging, ECC, and endoscopy.
  • First Opinion, Hospital, ECC, and Referrals
  • Dedicated on-site night staff
  • Wide range of equipment including CT and Endoscopy

Hours: They understand some of the best RVNs need flexible working arrangements so they will consider applicants looking for both full-time and part-time roles. The full-time role would be 37.5 hours a week inclusive of a weekend rota shared fairly among the whole team: one full weekend and two half weekends in 14 with time off in lieu.

Bank holiday rota: There is also a requirement to work some Bank Holidays (including Christmas/Boxing Day/New Years Day) on a rota that is shared fairly by the team.

Skills/Exp: The right candidate will be friendly, motivated, and keen to work as part of a fairly large team. They would ideally like a nurse with some post-graduation experience, however, they would consider more recently-qualified nurses too, especially if they have had experience in a hospital environment during training.

Sole Charge: Some

Branch Work: No

Applicant Requirements: They value a high standard of patient and client care, are forward-thinking, and actively encourage and support their RVNs to pursue their passions and interests – they have nurses with advanced qualifications in all sorts of disciplines including anaesthesia, surgery, ECC, and feline medicine. They are a nurse training practice and encourage RVNs to consider becoming clinical coaches if they would like to.

Salary: Competitive salary £21,000 - £26,000 p/a based on experience and further qualifications
