Our client value their whole team and strive to provide both a good work life balance and real job satisfaction. 

They are offering a 1:8 rota (one weekend in eight, one week night every other week) with a half day either side of a week night on call, a half day either side of a weekend on call, a set day off each week and the Friday after a weekend on call off too.

This allows them to provide a fantastic standard of care to all of their patients and the opportunity to care for interesting and challenging cases.

Their fantastic nursing team of 9 RVNs and 3 SVNs is led by a DipAVN and includes ECC certificate holders. They are integral to the practice. They have a very friendly and inclusive team right across the practice with vets, nurses and reception staff all supporting each other - they are looking for the right person to maintain and enhance this.
