Permanent Registered Veterinary Nurse - Northwich

We are currently working with an RCVS accredited small animal practice in Northwich, Cheshire, that due to the practice expanding are looking for full-time Registered Veterinary Nurses to join them on a permanent basis.

The Practice:

Our client is an independent small animal practice across two sites. Their flagship Hospital is an independent RCVS accredited small animal hospital, nurse training practice, and gold cat-friendly clinic which strives to provide the highest standards of first opinion care for patients and clients. They are proud to provide their own 24hr emergency service.

They have ten vets with Advanced Practitioners in Anaesthesia, ECC, and Medicine and are fully supported by an experienced and dedicated front-of-house team. they also have visiting Specialist vets in Orthopaedics, Soft Tissue Surgery, Cardiology, and Diagnostic imaging. This allows them to provide a fantastic standard of care to all patients and the opportunity to care for interesting and challenging cases.

Their fantastic nursing team of 9 RVNs and 3 SVNs is led by a DipAVN and includes ECC certificate holders. They are integral to the practice and are valued as such with CPD and further study is supported and encouraged. 

They have a very friendly and inclusive team right across the practice with vets, nurses, and reception staff all supporting each other - they are looking for the right candidates to maintain and enhance this.

The Role and Candidate:

They are looking for at least two RVN's to add to their growing practice team. The right candidates will truly care for patients, be good team players and be enthusiastic, proactive, and motivated to provide a high-quality first opinion service to patients and clients. The nursing team is involved in all aspects of the practice, including the provision of 24 hours on-site inpatient care. The feeling of a good job done well and seeing that really poorly inpatient get better and go home makes it worthwhile.

The nursing rota is being updated and refined for their growing team, with extensive consultation within the practice. They anticipate a 4-day working week (shifts a combination of 8-5, 10-7, or 11-8), shared weekends (8-8 with days off in lieu) plus a week of overnight care (7:30 pm-8:30 am) with a week off following. The shifts are shared across the sites to maintain their 'one team' approach.
