General Nurse

Job Description

The Role

This position possibly has the most variety of all our hospital nurse roles as it requires wards to be covered in addition the theatre/prep area. This role would suit a confident person who likes to be part of an extended team, ensuring all our animals get the optimum care available. No two days are the same so flexibility and a positive approach are essential. There will be some requirement to work twilight shifts plus 1 weekend in 6 (but lieu time will be given the following week). Whilst primarily first opinion based in theatre/prep you will have the opportunity to work with a diverse range of first opinion and referral cases in wards which is a key bonus of this role.

What we do ask for is enthusiasm, an excellent work ethic, team spirit and a passion for clinical excellence.
