About the Team
Our nursing team have a variety of interests and experience including exotics (our head nurse has an exotics certificate), wound management, anaesthesia and nutrition. We like to support learning, development and CPD.
One of our vets has a PGCert in surgery, one provides acupuncture, another is doing his ophthalmology certificate, and our vets have a wide range of experience from our recent new graduate addition to over 20 years’ experience! We are innovative, caring and listen to our team.
We are a cohesive and supportive team - whether brainstorming on how we can help a patient, celebrating our successes or understanding when things are tough. We value and listen to the opinions and experience of all our team members. Our clinical meetings allow everyone to have an input and we act on what we discuss.
We like to involve ourselves in the local community and have taken part in mud runs to raise funds for a local mental health unit and Vetlife. We also visit local schools and one of the directors is a STEM ambassador helping promote the sciences and supporting schools and community groups. We are a host practice for Pet Blood Bank.
We are looking for a qualified RVN who has empathy with clients and their pets and a desire to use their nursing skills. The ability to communicate effectively with both clients and staff is vital. We value teamwork and appreciate staff taking part in case discussion and contributing ideas to improve our practice.
We want someone who enjoys talking to clients and who can provide clear, sympathetic and useful advice when needed.
We need a nurse who can work effectively both in a team and on their own initiative. We love and value experience but can also support and guide a newly qualified nurse.
