Are you an RVN with the passion to make a better world of pets, alongside a skilled team of Nurses?

Here at Avonvale, Wellesbourne we have an excellent opportunity to welcome a Registered Veterinary Nurse to join our friendly and supportive team!

Your role and responsibilities

We are seeking a Registered Veterinary Nurse to join our talented and passionate nursing team within our Warwick hospital branch to help with maternity cover!

Due to our skilled team of Veterinary Surgeons holding various certificates, we see a vast array of cases and refer very few, meaning you will be exposed to a wide variety of procedures and advanced nursing techniques.

We pride ourselves in our full nurse utilisation, incorporating consults as well as schedule 3 etc. into your working day, providing our nurses with great job satisfaction. Our nursing team includes people with interests in a wide variety of areas including anaesthesia, ECC and behaviour, therefore, opening the opportunity for you to grow your skills and expertise alongside our experienced team. We are also supported by our wonderful Patient Care Assistants who work alongside our nurses to achieve the highest standards of care for our patients.

The position will include some out of hours work, and would suit a self-motivated RVN with their own transport who is keen to develop their skills. You can choose between nights or weekends.

In return we offer a competitive salary, relaxed 1:13 weekend or 1:10 nights rota, plus Saturday mornings 1:8 at branch dependent on requirements at the individual branches. Weekends and nights are based from the Warwick hospital.
