Ophthalmology Veterinary Nurse

Job Description

About Us

Our Ophthalmologist Nurses are able to enjoy very hands-on nursing. There is a true opportunity to develop this role further and with CPD being actively encouraged within the business, progression is guaranteed.

The Role

The successful candidate will organise the ophthalmology department and team members throughout the day and liaise with other areas as required (theatre, wards, imaging). We’re not expecting applicants to be specialists in this area at the time of applying, so having an interest in ophthalmology is sufficient.

Generally working Monday to Friday from 8.30am to 6pm, there is minimal on call requirements. Weekend working would be 1/6 with lieu time allowed for the following week.

There will be opportunities to assist the ophthalmologists with surgical and non-surgical procedures, and time to provide one to one care to our very important patients.

We can offer assistance with relocation costs if relevant.

The ophthalmology team is a friendly dynamic team that comprises a nurse, an intern and four specialist ophthalmologists who see a large range of medical and surgical cases. The team is dedicated to outstanding patient care and are happy to share their knowledge.

While in the ophthalmology team you will be working with the theatre and in-patient care teams in our busy referral hospital as well as the wider team at the practice. There are plenty of occasions to work alongside the other dedicated veterinary professionals.

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.
