We are currently recruiting for a permanent RVN to run a busy branch practice based just south of Todmorden, West Yorkshire, on a full-time basis.

The Practice:
This is a busy branch practice which supports the main hospital site in Halifax. They opened this branch in January 2012 and was opened with the purpose of allowing the existing farm and equine clients who were living on the outskirts of Halifax to access a more local practice. This particular branch is busy and expanding offering consultations and surgery appointments as well as MRI and CT scanning facilities. Nurses are also very much utilised at this branch and they offer nurse clinics too.

The Role:
In this role, you will be the most senior RVN at the practice and the hours will be working 40 hours per week on a rota basis. Normally you will work 08:00-16:00, although you may be required to work 11:00-19:00 when required and you will be notified of this change with notice.

There are no OOH with this role and the weekend rota will be working 1:8 Saturday mornings and this is 09:00-14:00.

Our client is happy to consider all levels of experience for this role, should you show the confidence to run the branch. The duties for this role would be to run the nursing team as well as stock control, inpatient care, surgical ops, rota and sick cover. The client is more than happy to support and train in aspects that you may not be confident with.

The salary would start at around £18,500 for a newly qualified RVN but this is negotiable for those with experience and who can demonstrate extra capabilities. CPD is negotiable depending on the benefit to the practice and all RCVS and professional fees are paid.
