We are looking for a fantastic Registered Veterinary Nurse to join our dynamic team at New Malden Vets. You will work 8-hour shifts across 40 hours per week. This will include 1:5 weekends but with no OOH.

About us

We are based in a lovely part of the world on the SW London/Surrey borders close to Wimbledon and Kingston-upon-Thames. There is a lovely high street a couple minutes walk from us, with shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs. Our location gives easy, fast access to London (25 minutes by train) and access out of London by car on the A3 if you want to head to the coast.

We strive for high standards of general practice and are lucky to have a wide range of equipment and services to offer. We have three (soon to be four consulting rooms), a dedicated prep room and theatre, a separate dental area as well as an x-ray, digital/dental ultrasound room, multiparameter anaesthetic monitors, bronchoscopy, and a full surgical kit. We have separate cat and dog waiting rooms and kennels which allows for minimal stress for all of our patients.

We aim to give every team member a great quality of life and learning/working experience feeling supported with an open, caring structure. We run a local dog show once yearly which is incredibly popular and much loved. Our culture is one of support and encouragement on every level to maintain our gold standard of care.
