Job Description

Registered Veterinary Nurse – Natterjacks Vets – Poole, Dorset

** NO OOH! **

Fancy a role with no OOH on the beautiful South England coast? Come and work with us at Natterjacks! We are looking for a Registered Veterinary Nurse to join our RCVS accredited Poole practice. You will be working in a genuinely friendly practice in picturesque Dorset, minutes from the sea. Our growing small animal practice has all the mod cons and toys including an in-house CT scanner. Both of our sites in Poole and Bournemouth are close to the beach, with easy access to all that the Jurassic coast, Dorset countryside and the New Forest have to offer.

So, why Natterjacks?

Well apart from having the chance to live in one of the most gorgeous parts of the UK, the most important factor in joining us at Natterjacks is to be part of our team; we have an exceptionally lovely bunch of vets, nurses, and support staff who get on like a house on fire (in a good way) and have a great time together both in and out of work. We have a variety of experience levels, backgrounds and interests, making us a dynamic team to work within. There are (many) nights out, a practice paddleboarding group, umpteen potential dog walking friends to be made, young families, runners, board gamers, photographers, cyclists, music enthusiasts and festival goers etc. Whatever wonderful talents you want to bring to the Natterjacks family will be welcomed with open arms! 

What our team have to say:

“I always feel supported with everything in my job and am so greatful for the opportunity that natterjack has given me. I am so proud to be able to tell people where I work and happy to be where I am, I couldn’t think of a better place to be. Being surrounded by people who are so kind and lovely to each other and the relationships between the nurses/ vets/ receptionists/ Ana’s are really close and no looking down on each other which I did have at a previous practice.  Always feel happy coming to work and never a day when I don’t go home with a story to tell and no complaints to make about natterjack at all” – Lauren

“What can I say about working at Natterjacks? It started by me being given a chance, despite no experience and being in my senior years, trying to get into veterinary for decades. For this I’m truly grateful and feel so lucky. The team at Natterjacks are amazing, talented and so kind. We are an actual family. Now… I’m a second year student, loving my job and my training and thank my lucky stars every day that Natterjacks believed in me and encourage me to grow and thrive. This is a wonderful place to work” – Jenny

“The whole team are so happy and caring – everyone has been so friendly, welcoming, helpful and patient since I joined them” – Viv
