Birmingham, England, United Kingdom


Vet Nurse/RVN

Sep 15

The Role

We are looking for a caring and enthusiastic night owl to join our team. You will work 1 week of days, 1 week of nights, and then a week off.

On your night week, you will work alongside the night vet to triage calls, assist the vet with any emergencies and care for inpatients in the hospital. We provide OOH cover for 7 branches. During your day week, you will be involved in all aspects of nursing, including, theatre, lab, inpatients, and consultations

About Us

We are very lucky that we are only a short drive from Birmingham city centre, but also some beautiful rural areas such as the Clent hills and Kinver Edge. Luckily we have lots to offer our patients, with an onsite CT scanner and access to an MRI scanner when needed. We have K-laser, ultrasound, dental x-ray, endoscopy, digital x-ray and a full complement of support staff to allow our nurses to be very hands-on within their role.

We have vets that hold certificates in Imaging, Surgery, Cardiology and Medicine and nurses that have certificates in ECC, Feline medicine, Exotics and zoo animals. We actively encourage continual development and will support you with further qualifications.

We have 26 vets, 25 RVNs, 7 SVNs, 12 Vet auxiliaries, 16 receptionists, and a fantastic administrative team. We work closely with a lot of local charities to ensure the animals in their care get the medical attention that they need.

The Candidate

We are seeking a confident and competent RVN that enjoys working as part of a large and dynamic team- ideally with a particular interest in night work or a certificate in ECC.
