Full-Time RVN Required for Maternity cover starting November 2017
We are looking for a RVN to join our friendly team for a period of approximately 9 months from November covering maternity leave. You will be working 38 hours a week with no OOH and some Saturday mornings (8am - 12 noon).
We are an independent small animal, single vet practice with two branches within Milton Keynes. Our main practice in Stantonbury Fields is purpose built with 3 consult rooms, separate cat and dog kennels, prep room, operating theatre and x-ray room. We have a fully equipped lab, digital radiography, ultrasound and dental equipment. In addition we have recently purchased an MLS Class 4 Laser. Our branch practice at Oxley Park offers consultations only with all procedures being referred to Stantonbury Fields. Our nurses run a range of nursing clinics at both branches including Laser Therapy as well as the more usual Weight, Dental, Flea/Worm, Adolescent & Senior clinics.
You would be part of a team consisting of 2.5 RVN's and 2 SVN's. As we are a training practice you would need to be happy to help support and train our student nurses but a clinical coach qualification is not essential. The role will involve all aspects of nursing care as well as reception work. Nurses currently work a combination of the following shift patterns 8-7, 8-5, 9-6, 10-7, 8-2 or 1-7 each week. The rota can be negotiated to allow for prior commitments but will include at least one day a week sole charge at our branch in Oxley Park.
