An independent small animal practice near Haverfordwest in south Wales are recruiting a permanent full time Registered Veterinary Nurse to join their team. Surrounded by stunning beaches and countryside, they are a rural practice who prides themselves on a first class small animal service, practising excellent medicine with great clients.
The practice are passionate about training and development, and have nurses with BSAVA Merit Awards and working towards higher qualifications. Being a distance from the nearest referral centre means they manage most of their own cases, from cardiology to orthopaedics, and medical work-ups, ensuring an exciting and varied array of cases. The RVNs and SVNs at the practice share all types of work between them, from anaesthetics, in-patient nursing, surgical nursing, consulting, lab work, weight management, rehabilitation and puppy socials.
They believe in allowing the team to develop their interests. The role would be 37.5 hours weekly, with generous CPD and holiday allowances. The hours vary through the week, with a mixture of early starts (8am), later finishes (7pm) and half days off. Nurses do cover the OOH on rota, so would need to live within 20 minutes of the Haverfordwest surgery. The team consists of a great mix of experienced and more recently qualified nurses.
The successful candidate would have an interest in a variety of nursing and would be able to nurse in-patients as well as surgical cases. They would enjoy explaining and discussing patients with their owners, and support practice health schemes and preventative health. They would enjoy working as part of a varied team, and supporting their colleagues. A sense of humour and an enjoyment of all forms of snacks is preferable but not essential.
