Head Registered Veterinary Nurse

Job Description

The Role

The working pattern is a rolling 5 week rota over 5 days with a share of Saturdays (half day), which you would receive time back for. No out of hours. No Bank Holiday working.

You will support and manage both the nursing and front of house team, working closely with the Clinic Director to ensure successful management of the Practice. This is a 100% small animal Practice where nurses are fully utilised and additional Schedule 3 procedures are actively encouraged and supported. There is minimal sole charge for the Head Nurse as you are supported by a Site Operations Support Manager and a Central Support Team.

About Us

The team consists of 4 RVNs (from new grad up to 10 years qualified) and 1 3rd year student. 4 client care co-ordinators and 3.5 vets. The team and the Practice have huge potential for growth and development with the right person assisting the Clinic Director in driving the team forward.

Practices that truly look after their team members are hard to come by. That's where White Cross Vets stand out – Sunday Times Top 100 Company to Work for 6 years running!

Management experience is desirable but we welcome applications from individuals who have a desire to develop themselves and have proven experience of development and leadership of others. Confident and professional you will relate to our core principles of quality, integrity, responsibility, and growth, fitting seamlessly alongside our friendly practice teams as you work to provide a quality experience for pet owners and pets alike.

As a Disability Confident Employer we are keen to hear from candidates with disabilities and long term health conditions, and would be happy to discuss any reasonable adjustments needed during the recruitment process.
