Do you love wards? Do you work well under pressure? Are you happy starting work slightly later and finishing a little later?

If so, we may have the role for you!

We are currently recruiting for a permanent late lead ward RVN to join a team focused, independent Tier 3 hospital near to Swindon. Our client prides themselves on promoting and encouraging a healthy work environment, whilst maintain a focus on work/life balance.

As the hospital is independently owned and managed all the partners (both vets and RVNs) have a very personal approach to how the hospital caters to clients and focus on working the correct way.

The current team consists with vets with interests in dentistry, surgery, feline, GP, ophthalmology, surgery, diagnostic imaging, and medicine to name a few. Many with (or working towards) certificates- this means you will always have a variety of cases.

The shift pattern is 1pm-10pm Monday to Friday with 1:7 Saturday and Sundays with the following Monday and Tuesday off.

The Lead nurse’s role also involves overseeing the discharges. Our client does have a discharge nurse, but the lead RVN takes responsibility for ensuring this shift goes smoothly and assists with any training or support.

The late vet consults until 8pm only see ‘true’ emergencies within their last hour of consulting. The lead ward late nurse will assist this vet should anything need any work ups with the late vet then leaving at 9.30pm. The VCA can also assist with the lead late nurse with bloods, fluids etc in between caring for the inpatients.

Our client is a host practice for vets now, with handover of inpatients to them at 6.30pm.

For more information, please do get in touch!

Key benefits:

  • Salary of £32,000 per annum.
  • CPD Budget of £1000 which is actively encouraged.
  • Holiday allowance 25 days per annum (excluding BH’s)
  • Working within an independent Tier 3 hospital.
  • A huge range of caseloads to become involved with.
