Abbey Veterinary Clinic, Arbroath
Angus, Angus, United Kingdom
We are looking for a confident Registered Veterinary Nurse to join our amazing team here at Abbey Veterinary Clinic, Arbroath. Our nurses carry out a range of duties to make sure the day runs as smoothly as possible. From setting up the theatre, phlebotomy, admitting/discharging patients, and to consulting, our nurses are the backbone of our clinical team. We look for nurses who are dedicated to providing the best care and want to make a difference to our clinic by contributing to our team meetings.
For the right candidate, we can be flexible on our working hours and patterns. Ideally, the shift pattern would be:
• Mon 9-1
• Tuesday 9-4:30
• Wednesday 8:30-5
• Thursday 9:30-6:30
• Friday 9-5
• Saturday 11-12:30 working 1 in 5
We are proud to be able to provide our own Out of Hours care to the surrounding area of Arbroath/Forfar. The pattern for covering this rota would be 1 week in 5, working the Saturday morning clinic in Arbroath.
This position will be primarily based in Arbroath; however, the candidate will be required to work in our Forfar clinic also.
Salary for the role is up to £25,000 depending on experience.
Abbey Veterinary Clinics is an established mixed practice based in Arbroath/Forfar. Being based in Angus means we are not far from some beautiful scenery, and great cafes in our towns that can provide a delicious lunch if you venture out. Our Arbroath clinic is newly renovated, with more renovations set to take place in the not-so-distant future. Our clinics boast digital x-ray machines, im3 dental machines, operating lights, and multi-parameters. Both clinics are fully operational, and we consult and operate daily from both sites. We provide our own Out of Hours service and our clients value that continuity of care.
About the Team and Culture
We are a smaller team that know each other well and like to have a good laugh at work while getting the job done. We are made up of 3 Vets, 4 Nurses, 1 SVN, 1 ACA, 4 Receptionists, 1 Administrator, 1 Practice Manager. A supportive and inclusive culture is what we all promote, and it can be felt within our working environment. We enjoy catching up with each other in work, and outside of work at our team-building events that usually involve food and drink! When you need a pick me up at work, we have a snack cupboard that gets filled up regularly for feasting while catching up with colleagues. We hope our new nurse can join us in our commitment to providing the best care, while looking for ways to make improvements to our working practices.
Our preferred candidate will have a can-do positive attitude, be RCVS registered, and confident in their abilities as a nurse.
