Are you like others and feeling a bit flummoxed with the world? Things have got to get better, haven’t they? Indeed, they will… and they are at Hunt’s anyway! Move from Languishing to Flourishing!
We have an exciting opportunity for a Registered Veterinary Nurse or second year student soon to qualify, for our expanding team. We want someone who is looking to be able to make their mark and contribute to the smooth running of the clinics. Someone who wants to stretch their wings and grow with us. You will be supported in fulfilling your oath to animal care and welfare by contributing to the high practice standards and procedures already in place. You should be proficient in both surgical and medical nursing, work well as an individual but also be able to integrate well within the team, hardworking and reliable.
We are looking for a nurse to join us on a temporary maternity cover contract, and another to join us on a permanent basis, making this a great opportunity for those new to the role and those with a wealth of expeirence! Our existing Vet Nurse shift pattern consists of a 4-day week, working between the hours of 8am and 6.30pm, 9.5 hours per day. You will be required to work 1 in 4 Saturdays between the hours of 8am and 4pm, with a day off in lieu during the week. There is no OOH or bank holiday cover required with this role. Although this is a full-time opportunity, we will also consider part time applicants.
Up to £27,500.00 depending on experience.
Relocation allowance up to £5000
All three of our sites are just a short distance from the centre of Manchester for those of you that like the hustle and bustle of the city, but also just a short journey out to the beautiful Peak District National Park. Geographically, a perfect location to lay down roots! We are really lucky to be based in a fantastic location!
The main branch at Poynton is a purpose-built building and is lovely and airy. The Woodley branch is a converted house with the practice based on the ground floor so no up and down stairs with big dogs! The Cheadle branch is a stand-alone consulting only branch and extremely busy.
Hunt’s Veterinary Clinics first opened its doors in 1966 & although we were originally mixed practice, we converted our clinics to cover small animal only in November 1997 and we’ve been caring for small animals ever since. We are an RCVS accredited small animal practice. Each site is furnished to a high specification so that our high standards of care are uniform across all three sites.
We are a multi-site, small animal, first opinion practice who want an additional RVN or second year student soon to qualify, for our expanding team! Accommodation is also available and can be discussed further at interview stage.
You will be joining a very supportive team who are committed to staff wellbeing and animal welfare. This is really important to us and you will find yourself amongst people with strong team ethics and who like a good laugh too!
