The hours are Mon - Fri at 40 hours but if you are looking for part time position, this can be certainly be discussed. The successful candidate will be joining a team of three other Nurses so shifts are shared out equally. Our team do their own rota so we are very flexible with appointments and needs out of work.

We are a small practice based in the market town of Grantham. Grantham is a thriving market town with plenty of shops, with our local city being that of the iconic Lincoln just a short drive away. Grantham also hosts a train station with direct links to London for those shopaholics out there.
We have all of the modern facilities including digital x-ray, in house lab and ultrasound.
We are a team of 8 Vets with 3 of those Vets based at Grantham, 2 at any one time. We have a team of 12 Registered Veterinary Nurses in the group with 1 RVN, 1 SVN and 1 VCA based in Grantham so always plenty of hands to help. Our Clinical Director holds a cardiology certificate with another Vet undergoing a soft tissue certificate and another about to start hers in ophthalmology.
We also pride ourselves at having an excellent team of support staff including receptionists, PM and admin staff.
The candidate will need to be a team player, helping the current team give the best service to our clients where customer service and animal care is of the most importance.
