The future is here and we are looking to add to our core team of staff by recruiting a mobile, flexible and adaptable workforce to support our training practices and veterinary nurse students on placement throughout the UK.

This is a viable alternative to working set hours and is the ultimate in self-managed independent working. There is no cap on what you can earn other than your available time. You will be paid a monthly retainer for each student, clinical coach and training practice under your care and will be reimbursed mileage and expenses when you visit them or attend College training and standardisation days.

There is a service level that you will be expected to deliver but you are empowered to manage your own time, work and earning potential without committing yourself to a traditional working pattern.

You will be expected to regularly contact your allocated practices, clinical coaches and students. You will approve new training practices and carry out inspection and support visits. You will be the first contact for the practices and students. You will quality assure students practical skills assessments and provide ongoing support to clinical coaches.The role is a combination of home working and visits but it is your decision as to the when.

This role is for RVN sand MRCVS who have their own vehicle and should reasonably be able to commit to a minimum of 15 hours per week at times to suit you and our stakeholders. The role requires you to be a qualified Internal quality assurer (formerly known as Internal Verifier  D32  D33  D34  A1-A2) but if you do not hold the qualification then training will be provided.

We are looking to appoint Practice Support Officers in Scotland, North and South Wales, Northern Ireland, West Midlands, North East,South West, South, South East, London and the Home Counties at volumes of work that suit you.

If you would like to discuss this opportunity further please contact Shirley Gibbins (sgibbins@caw.ac.uk)or Frank Taylor (ftaylor@caw.ac.uk) to arrange an informal chat.
