Registered Veterinary Nurse required at White Cross Vets, Bloxwich

Job Description

The Role

Our wonderful practice in Bloxwich is growing and we are looking for a Registered Veterinary Nurse to join them on this exciting next step in their journey. The successful candidate will work just 37.5 hours a week over 5 days and a share of Saturdays (with TOIL given). Bloxwich is a flexible working practice though – so we are open to hearing from candidates looking for less than FT hours, or a more flexible rota, so we can discuss this further with you. There are no OOH requirements and we always make work-life balance a top priority at White Cross Vets.

The salary is up to £26,000 depending on experience.

About Us

Bloxwich is a growing practice with great facilities including 3 consult rooms, cat ward, dog ward, operating theatre, digital x-ray, dental x-ray, ultrasound and access to endoscope if needed. Working alongside our wonderful nurse team, we have 4 vets (soon to be 5), 3 of whom have been qualified from 4-9 years, and 1 new graduate who joined us this year on our academy programme.  We hold the ISFM silver award for cat care and the IVC Evidensia patient safety award. Many of our nursing team members have different passions, such as behaviour, wound management, and the clinical team love to share ideas and develop together.

One of the best parts of working at Bloxwich is the close-knit, enthusiastic team. We are all food lovers and have been known to demolish a tin of quality street within minutes. We love to bond over our shared love of food with regular meals out together, lunch and learns and snack-fuelled wellbeing afternoons. When not eating/laughing/working fabulously together – you’ll likely find us in an Alexa dance-off, practising our moves for the dancefloor at our upcoming expenses paid, annual company get together/night away in Manchester!

Applicant Requirements

We are looking for a highly motivated veterinary nurse who can thrive in our high-quality practice. You will relate to our core principles of quality, integrity, responsibility and growth, fitting seamlessly alongside our friendly practice teams as you work with the team to provide a quality experience for pet owners and pets alike.
