We started as a single veterinary practice in East Dulwich 10 years ago and have now grown to have 3 practices, (2 smaller sites located in Crofton Park and Penge and our main hospital at East Dulwich). We currently have 17 Vets, 10 RVNs, 6 Veterinary care assistants/ students and 16 reception/ administration staff across our busy practices.
About the Team and Culture
We have grown our practice by focussing on looking after each other, then pets, then clients.
We are a close team who pride ourselves on providing excellent standards of care. For example, for every anaesthetic, we use the best drugs (only sevoflurane gas), and everything has an IV placed and gets fluids. We use a range of anaesthetic monitors, we manually chart, we supervise, we train, we record incidents, and we review our practice and process in a supportive way. We provide the safest care for our patients, which hopefully means the least stress for everyone.
You can also expect a friendly, welcoming, and open culture from top to bottom. We want humble, kind teammates, who enjoy their work, and can have a laugh! We are not perfect, and we want to continue to all learn, grow and be better. We value our employees, and you can expect support and continued education with on-the-job training, mentoring and lots of on-going (and often free!) CPD.
The successful candidate will be an experienced Registered Veterinary Nurse, but we are also open to newly qualified nurses. We are looking first and foremost for someone who “gets” what we are trying to achieve and can fit into our team culture and values. You will feel confident working in a busy, sometimes high-pressure environment and can manage your time and priorities. We want someone who can have a laugh (and sometimes a cry!) with the team.

• Increasing holiday based on length of service
