PDSA is a special organisation that provides expert veterinary care for people across the UK who otherwise would not be able to afford to treat their pets. What we do really matters!

Our approach is unique as we combine pragmatism with a strong client care focus to deliver good clinical outcomes – we focus on measuring our impact rather than targets.

Your wellbeing at work is critical and we work hard to provide a supportive and engaging environment. You will have access to all the expert advice and resources you need to set you up for success in your new role.

About you

We are looking for qualified vet nurses who are up for a challenge and can adapt to the wide variety of cases seen at PDSA. Confidence in communicating with a wide range of colleagues and clients is essential as is a willingness to share your skills and lead by example. Specifically, you will be involved in consultations, in-patient care, dispensing medications and assisting in theatre including schedule 3 surgery.

Your passion will drive you to champion the charity, promote client contributions and always keep an eye on resources suggesting efficiencies wherever possible. We really do listen.

The work is fast-paced and challenging so we want you to have the work life balance that suits your needs as well as enabling us to deliver an outstanding service. Ask us about flexible options!
