Budget Vets, Bridgend
Brackla, Bridgend, United KingdomWe are looking for a caring and friendly Head Registered Veterinary Nurse who is happy to chat to clients and develop lasting relationships with them. The position is full time - a 4 day week and 1:4 Saturdays. Overtime is given back usually as TOIL. We are a training practice, and although there is no obligation to train SVNs, we would encourage and prefer that we stay as a TP. We would love you to continue the nurse consults that we are currently able to offer. A day in the Bridgend branch is a lovely one - a really nice pace with good clients and a broad range of work each day.
Budget Vets has gone through some exciting changes in the last few years, and the Bridgend branch itself has just had renovation of the reception area, theatre and prep. We are a friendly, welcoming team who strives to provide excellent care and communication to clients, whilst keeping costs manageable. We heavily encourage CPD and the progression of our staff. We have internal Idexx lab, digital radiography, separate cat and dog wards, and ultrasound scanner. We are also incredibly lucky to have lovely clients, who have stayed polite and patient throughout COVID The Bridgend branch is close to Cardiff, and has the great benefit of not only being on the M4, but also close to beautiful dog friendly beaches.
The successful applicant will be an RVN, ideally with experience. Management experience is not necessary, though if you were keen to develop this aspect of your skillset, the role would allow this. We would need someone who is happy to do nurse consults, and someone with a broad understanding of what is needed to keep things ticking over - CD book, laboratory maintenance etc. More than anything we want someone who is happy, caring and fun. Certificates would be fully funded and actively encouraged.
