Job Description

Due to one of our colleagues retiring we have an exciting opportunity for a Registered Veterinary Nurse to come and join our experienced team at Westgate Vets4Pets. We are located inside a busy Pets at Home Store and have an excellent relationship with the store colleagues.  Our positioning is close to motorway networks including the M1 and M62 and we are a 10 minute walk from Wakefield Westgate train station.

Our bright, air-conditioned surgery is purpose built to industry leading standards and is very well organized, with state of the art equipment including DR Digital Radiography, Ultrasound Machine, IDEXX Lasercyte and Catalyst One machines, Microscopy, Pulse Oximetry, Doppler Blood pressure and ECG.

 Fiona and Chris Coutts, the practice partners, are supported by a friendly and welcoming team of three Veterinary Surgeons, three Registered Veterinary Nurses, four receptionists and a Practice Manager.  We are also involved in the training of student nurses and the entire team is committed to providing the very best care and service to our patients and customers alike.

You will be a confident, enthusiastic Registered Veterinary Nurse with good all round general nursing skills.  We actively encourage you to use these skills to their full potential when working both with the surgical team and running our nurse consultations.  We are enthusiastic for you to further your current skills, with some examples of courses our current RVN’s have been involved in including further studies in exotics, canine behavior and feline medicine.

The role is full time and averages 40 hours a week which includes a shared weekend rota of 1 in 3 weekends.  We do not cover Out of Hours work as we have a local Out of Hours provider who covers these for us.  The shift pattern varies from week to week and includes time off during the weeks both before and after a weekend worked.

In return for your hard work, we can offer you:

  • A competitive salary dependent on experience, which is reviewed at least yearly.
  • Generous CPD (including funded Certificates)
  • Contributory pension scheme
  • Paid memberships (RCVS, BVNA, VDS)
  • Exclusive company and high street discounts and rewards
  • 20% discount with some of our partner companies, including Pets at Home

If you share our passion for delivering outstanding pet healthcare and great customer service then we would love to hear from you!  For more information please email or apply online at
