Registered Veterinary Nurse

Registered Veterinary Nurse 
Vine Tree Vets 
Salary up to £35,000 depending on experience

The role will include all aspects of nursing within a small animal clinic. Ranging from stock management to patient care. 
We are looking for a nurse to work a 40-hour week with a mixture of shifts covering the clinic opening hours of 8.30 am to 7 pm and a contribution to Saturday mornings with time back in the week to maintain a 40-hour week. No out-of-hours coverage is required. 

Why Join Us? 

Vine Tree opened its doors in the Wye Valley in 2015 as an independent, family-run practice in a newly refurbished pub (the beer cellar still exists but is sadly booze-less!!). Our collaboration with IVC in 2017 has seen our business and team grow exponentially. 
While having all the mod cons you would expect in a modern small animal practice (including digital and dental x-ray, endoscopy, bronchoscopy, ultrasound and an in-house laboratory). Our fantastic nurses play a large role in the practice and provide consults for our longstanding clients, you can guarantee you will be valued at Vine Tree Vets. 

Vine Tree is so much more than its equipment and the building we operate in. Firstly, and most importantly, we are a family. Every practice thinks they have a great team (and no doubt they do!) but our team is truly something special; comprised of 4 vets, 5 nursing staff, 3 client care assistants and our lovely practice manager (whose main job is keeping the cupboards well stocked with biscuits, homemade cake and fruit!).
