Registered Veterinary Nurse

Permanent nights, Towcester, 7pm – 8am, average 36.75 hours per week

Towcester Veterinary Centre is a mixed veterinary practice located over 4 sites within and around the historic town of Towcester, Northamptonshire. We are an RCVS accredited, independent practice, with a friendly team who are dedicated to delivering great service with a personal touch.

Our Small Animal practice has attained Tier Three status and includes a hospital plus 2 smaller sites.  We are a Gold Standard Cat Friendly clinic, offering separate dog and cat waiting areas and ward facilities.  We have two surgery certificate holders and one medicine certificate holder and therefore have the opportunity to work cases up to the highest degree.  We offer laparoscopy, endoscopy, orthopaedic work and have an extensive in-house lab, ultrasound and digital x-ray equipment to support our treatment.  Our lab facilities include Milab/Vetscan and bacterial culture testing, and you will be trained to use this equipment.

We have a dedicated night nursing team who work at our main hospital site in Towcester, monitoring and caring for our inpatients through the night and assisting the duty vet with any emergencies arising out of hours.

Shifts are 7:00pm to 8:00am (including a 1 hour unpaid lunch break) to facilitate thorough and effective handovers to and from the day team, and the rolling work pattern averages 36.75 hours per week (full pattern available on request).

We hope to recruit a self-motivated and productive RVN who is confident with lone working and emergency medicine.

They will be passionate about animal care, organised and proactive to ensure they achieve the required tasks without close supervision.  Communication skills are also key, as well as enthusiasm and resilience – we work in a challenging but ultimately rewarding industry!  If you are ready for a change and have a confident and positive outlook, then we would like to hear from you…

Benefits include CPD allowance, RCVS fees paid and generous staff discount.

To be considered for this position please submit your CV plus a covering letter outlining why you are interested in joining our Practice, salary expectations and notice period to Sue Adams, HR Manager

We are committed to equality of opportunity for all and welcome applicants from diverse backgrounds.
