The Role

We are looking for a Registered Veterinary Nurse to join our passionate team. This is a permanent full time (40 hours per week) position. Shifts are either 8.30 to 16.00 or 12.00 to 19.30 Monday to Friday with 1 in 2 Saturday mornings (8.45am to 12.45) and no OOH. We are looking for someone who wants to hit the ground running in our practice and develop their career further. 

About Us

We are a busy practice with a diverse case load and a 100% small animal focus based in South London close to good transport links. We have grown by looking after our clients, their pets and supporting our colleagues. The practice is an RVN training practice with 4 highly experienced vets, 3 RVNs (you would be one of them) and support staff. Our vacancy has arisen due to an internal promotion. The surgery houses all the usual equipment, digital x-ray (including dental), ultrasound, in house blood machines, multi parameter monitoring equipment, and more.

Our team is led by the Clinical Director with three other vets and 3 RVN roles. Our support staff include a VCA, auxiliary and student nurses and a receptionist. Two of our vets are currently studying Post Graduate Certificates in Surgery and Internal Medicine. We are very well known in the local community having been a part of the community for the past 21 years.

Applicant Requirements

We are looking for a Registered Veterinary Nurse ideally with experience but we will accept applications from confident newly qualified nurses.
