The Role
Due to an increase in our surgical caseloads, we are looking for an additional Registered Veterinary Nurse to join our well-established nursing team of 6 nurses here at Bishopbriggs Vets, Glasgow.

Pay is competitive and commensurate with experience.
About Us

We are well-equipped with ultrasound, x-ray, dental facilities, multi-parameter monitoring equipment and lab facilities. Our Chryston branch practice is also ISFM silver accredited with separate dog and cat waiting rooms, kennels and a separate isolation room.

We have a great team of 6 Vet Nurses, 10 Veterinary Surgeons and a wonderful team of Receptionists. We believe communication is key to a happy working environment.
