Job Description

The Role

We are looking for a Registered Veterinary Nurse who will be based primarily at our Bicester hospital. As part of our 12-nurse team, you will be part of a fast-growing practice that strives to deliver excellence in customer service as well as gold standard veterinary care. Working four days a week and one in six weekends, you will share the operating, consulting, and in-patient roles. Operating is performed daily in our very well-equipped RCVS Small Animal Hospital as are our nurse consultations. Digital x-ray, Idexx diagnostic machines, dental suite and modern anaesthetic monitoring equipment which combined with our client based-ethos makes our Bicester surgery a very satisfying and rewarding place in which to work. CPD is funded and encouraged including further qualifications. Hart Vets takes the well-being of our team very seriously with Well-Being Champions available to ensure that we listen to our team at every level. Out-of-hours care is provided by our own out-of-hours service where our dedicated night nurses look after their charges around the clock throughout the night.

About Us

Caring for pets since 1993, Hart Vets is a family run veterinary practice with modern surgeries in Bicester and Waddesdon. Our surgeries have been designed to provide the highest quality of care using the latest technology for diagnosis and treatment. Hart Vets is dedicated to providing quality health care with compassion. We like our patients to see the same vet whenever possible. We care for your pets the same way we would want our own pets to be cared for. We have on-site parking available for clients at both our Bicester Veterinary Hospital and our Waddesdon surgery, with disabled access to our waiting rooms and consulting areas. Our surgeries are air-conditioned and we have separate dog and cat areas so that our patient environment remains calm. Unlike most veterinary practices, we have a nurse awake caring for our patients at our Bicester Veterinary Hospital throughout the night, as well as having a vet on call. Our dedicated night nurses ensure that our patients receive the same high standard of care at night as they do during the day, every day of the year. We are the only veterinary practice in the area that employs dedicated night nurses to work throughout the night caring for our patients. Hart Vets Bicester is a Silver Standard ISFM accredited Cat Clinic.

Applicant Requirements

The successful candidate will be a dynamic veterinary nurse who wants to make a difference to the clients and pets for whom they care. Wanting to go that extra mile in customer care in an environment where you can really get to know your clients. We are looking for an organised, enthusiastic, motivated individual who will slot into our team from day one. Someone who strives for excellence, wants to contribute to the very fabric of the practice and sees their long-term future with Hart Vets We encourage further study including certificates in your chosen discipline and will endeavour to support the successful candidate as much as we can in achieving that goal. As a training practice, ideally, our new colleague will want to pass on the benefit of their knowledge and experience to others. We want to provide a comprehensive service to our loyal clients and help bond new ones to our surgeries. Ideally as happy in the consult room as they are in theatre, the successful applicant should thrive in that environment.
