Aug 15


(Full or Part time)

Small animal and exotics purpose built independent family run practice Norfolk - We are looking for an additional qualified veterinary nurse to expand our fantastic team of RVNs!

Our purpose built 4 vet small animal and exotics practice opened 8 years ago and is continuing to grow so we are looking for an additional member for our nursing team. We are based minutes from the beach and surrounded by rural woodland with the city of Norwich just 25 mins away.

We are an Independent Small Animal and Exotics practice offering a full range of medical and surgical services including an onsite exotic pet referral service and CT scanning service. We also care for a couple of local zoo collections.

Our practice has 2 dedicated operating theatres, separate cat, dog and exotic pet waiting areas and wards, CT scanner, digital x-ray and dental xray, ultrasound, video endoscopy, laser therapy, bair hugger, multiparameter units, portable capnography and pulse oximetry, fluid pumps and air conditioning throughout. We get a huge variety of interesting surgical and medical cases and have loyal clients who enjoy attending our nurse clinics.

Our nursing team is supported by our ANA’s and Receptionists. We are proudly Accredited Gold standard Rabbit Friendly and Gold Cat Friendly as well as winners of the Burgess Rabbit Practice of the Year. No previous experience of exotics is required and we are able to offer full support in any areas where you are less confident. Our full time RVN role has a 39 hour week which includes a half day off each week and a full day off if on call at the weekend. Part time hours can be discussed for the right candidate. We have a very experienced team and would be happy to support a new graduate or an experienced RVN. A share in the out of hours rota is required but the vets take the phone calls and care for inpatients and we are hoping to transition to night teams in the future.
