VN Recruitment

Helen Roberts

Bristol, Bristol, United Kingdom

About this vacancy and our client

We are working with a highly reputable, independent veterinary group in Bristol who are seeking a motivated RVN to join their friendly team. If you dream of working within a challenging yet supportive RCVS-accredited practice, where you will see a diverse and varied caseload and truly progress your nursing career, we’d love to hear from you! The practice has excellent on-site diagnostic and surgical facilities, and is equipped to see a mixture of first opinion and referral cases. You’ll be welcomed into a close-knit, supportive team where you’ll be encouraged to pursue your special interests and continue your professional and personal development.

The Role

You will be tasked with a variety of nursing duties, including: theatre prep; assistance in theatre; monitoring general anaesthetics; inpatient care; assisting with emergencies, and nurse clinics to name a few. You’ll be working with a diverse first opinion and referral caseload – so whilst referral experience isn’t essential as full training will be provided, any prior experience you do have would be advantageous. This is a full time position with a 1:7 weekend on-call rota for emergencies and inpatient checks only, bar a short Saturday morning clinic, for which you will be compensated with overtime pay and time off in lieu.

Experience / Who we are looking for

• Referral experience would be a distinct advantage but is not essential as full training will be provided – however you should be keen to expand your skills in referral work as well as first opinion
• Confident in all general nursing duties within a first opinion practice
• Team-orientated
• Committed to providing gold standard care

Work Hours & Benefits
