The Role

We are looking for a motivated Registered Veterinary Nurse to manage our dedicated, hardworking team of qualified and student nurses. Based at our RCVS accredited hospital in Skipton you would have some responsibility for managing and co-ordinating theatre, liaising with vets in order to prioritise procedures, delegating tasks within the nursing team.

We are looking for someone who is committed to providing high standards of care both for the pets and our clients. You must be extremely well organised and have lots of enthusiasm and energy to be able to lead, motivate and encourage the nursing team.

Other duties will include producing and managing the nurse rota, ensuring all shifts are covered for holiday's, developing student nurses, ensuring equipment is maintained and serviced as required, liaising with the stock team, co-ordinating visiting vet students.

There may be some later shifts required on the nursing rota to 7pm. We do provide our own OOH service so there may be a requirement to pick up some ad hoc cover for holidays or sickness but we anticipate this role to be carried out during the core working hours. The salary is dependent on experience.
