Registered Veterinary Nurse required at Easipetcare, Chatham

Job Description

The Role

An exciting opportunity has become available for a Registered Veterinary Nurse to join us at Easipetcare, Chatham!
Our Registered Veterinary Nurses are the absolute back bone of our practice, and generally have a hand in most areas day to day which include; carrying out schedule 3 procedures (subject to appropriate training), anaesthesia monitoring, scrubbing in, looking after our inpatient care, carrying out various types of nurse clinics, completing laboratory duties and much more!

Our Registered Veterinary Nurses need to ensure that patient care meets the required high standard that we expect from our nursing team. There will also be some reception duties such as: taking telephone calls/inpatient enquiries, stock control and ordering and unpacking orders.

However, in return, we love to provide the opportunity to become a clinical coach in the future. You will be supporting the Head Nurse in the supervision/training of our Student Veterinary Nurses & Animal Nursing Assistants when on shift and maintaining the highest level of cleanliness throughout the practice by upholding the practice’ infection control procedures.

We try to keep things interesting/varied here at Easipetcare, so our Registered Veterinary Nurses typically work 40 hours per week across 5 days, consisting of either an early shift (8:00 am to 4.30 pm) or a late (11:00 am to 7.30 pm). Our Nurses also work their fair share of Saturday shifts on a rota basis, and in turn receive time off the following week. However, there may be a degree of flexibility for the right candidate. No out of hours as that is looked after by our local Vets Now clinic!


Salary up to £27,000 per annum depending on experience
