January 2019: Amazing veterinary nurse needed!

We currently have an opportunity for a registered veterinary nurse to join our team. Our mission is to provide a welcoming and reassuring practice for our clients and patients whilst maintaining an excellent standard of care and service. We also aim to provide our team members with the clinical and emotional support needed to perform to the best of their ability at work.

We are an RCVS accredited practice and an approved veterinary nurse training practice with 3 clinical coaches. We believe it’s important to train future veterinary nurses and provide a supportive environment for this, working closely with local colleges to provide placements for degree vet nurses. Continuing professional development is encouraged for all team members.

Both of our practices are well-equipped; we have recently upgraded our ultrasound machine and have a Storz endoscopy tower allowing us to perform laparoscopic ovariectomies, laparoscopic biopsies, cystoscopy and rhinoscopy. We also have digital dental radiography, multi-parameter monitoring and digital x-ray.
