Lincoln South Vets4Pets – Registered Veterinary Nurse
Name: The Pets at Home Vet Group
Address: Isambard House Fire Fly Ave, Swindon, SN2 2EH
Job location: Lincolnshire | East Midlands
Position: Full time
Surgery Information / Job Description
We are looking for an enthusiastic and passionate veterinary nurse to become part of our experienced and supportive team. Read on to see if this role sounds like a great fit for you.
It is more important to us to find someone who shares our values and standards than who fits into a set 40 hour a week rota (and so we are open to applications for full or part-time candidates). We work hard to create an environment where everyone can perform at their best. We have high expectations of patient and client care but also expect the same levels of care to be directed towards each other. We all know that no day is the same in veterinary practice although having a full lunch break and leaving on time are the “norm” for all members of the team; we structure our working days to facilitate this (and any overtime is paid for if this doesn’t happen).
We think it is important that everyone has a voice and contributes in all aspects of life at the practice, so we aim for daily huddles where the whole team can get together and raise any concerns and/or share information. We feel it works well for us as we’re able to address and respond to any queries promptly.
By joining us you will have the opportunity to use your nursing skills to their full potential, taking and processing blood samples, placing catheters, taking x-rays, monitoring anaesthetics and carrying out nurse clinics (including second vaccinations, weight management clinics and pre- and post-operative checks).
Our Out of Hours is covered by Vets Now and so there are no night duties. We are open on a Saturday and Sunday and you would be part of the weekend rota, although, we currently have a nurse who covers 3 out of 4, so you’d only be required to work about 1 weekend in every 2 or 3 months realistically. However, we do ask that you are happy to work 1 in 4 weekends if required.
Vets4Pets in Lincoln is based in a busy Pets at Home store. The bright, air-conditioned surgery is purpose built and well equipped, including digital radiography, dental radiography, ultrasound, ECG, blood pressure monitors, tonometer, electrocautery, orthopaedic kit, in house lab and separate cat/dog/isolation kennels.
Overall our team comprises 16 colleagues and clinically, we have a strong, experienced blend of part and full time vets (6) nurses (6) and support staff (1 veterinary care assistant and 3 receptionists).
We can offer you:
• A supportive and friendly working environment
• Career development opportunities
• Competitive salary
• CPD allowance of £500 per annum for full time and 15 hours paid attendance
• Contributory Pension Scheme
• Free onsite parking
• Professional memberships paid
• Exclusive company discounts and rewards - including 20% off at Pets at Home, The Groom Room and the Vet Group
