This is a diverse, social, and enthusiastic team of Nurses, Vets, and Support Colleagues (Including the practice Cat). They have surfers, hikers, tarot card readers, rugby players, house plant enthusiasts, and dungeons and dragons players to name but a few. They even have a few dancers who, bless them, try very hard to teach the other colleagues the Jerusalema dance which they carried out to mark the first anniversary of the Covid pandemic.

Many of them come from different walks of life, but it is this diversity that makes working at this practice such a pleasure. 

The team is made up of 24 RVNs, and a team of SVNs and ACAs. They all have different areas of interest and at this practice, they encourage their RVNs to do as much as possible, and you will be heavily involved in a huge variety of medical and surgical cases. 

Alongside this main hospital, our client have five branches across South Wales. They remain committed to excellent clinical care and extremely high standards, with a Silver Level Cat Friendly status from the ISFM and five separate Outstanding RCVS awards.

The practice is based in a large town nestled between the bright lights of Cardiff to the east and Swansea to the West, the rugged Brecon Beacons to the North and the award-winning beaches to the South. This area offers an abundance for you to do in your downtime away from work.

Our Client pride themselves on being a friendly and supportive team of incredible people, working out of a purpose-built hospital with all the mod-cons, for a company that imposes no commercial targets on any of their colleagues. All that they ask of their team is that they go to work and leave each day knowing that they have done their absolute best. 

There is a weekly rota that will give you ample opportunity to spend time in wards, labs, dispensary, theatre, on nurse consults etc.

You will be on a 4.5 day week, the weekend rota involves only 4 weekend days in 14 weeks with time back in lieu. 

You may want to consider taking part in the night rota which involves 7 nights with the following 4 days off for recovery. You would be in charge of the inpatients overnight alongside the duty Vet (Also on site), as well as any emergency cases that are admitted overnight. You will also have an auxiliary nurse to support you until 10pm.

Skills and Requirements: You must be a team player and also have the ability to work independently and strive for high standards. You must be a proactive individual and hold a UK Drivers License as some branch work may be necessary.
