Our veterinary nursing team is a key part of our veterinary care team in our companion animal practice. Working in all of our three well equipped surgeries our nurses run their own clinics, care for our hospitalised patients and assist with all surgical and medical procedures. The team doesn’t just consist of qualified veterinary nurses. We also employ student veterinary nurses, animal care assistants, kennel assistants and often a career begins when someone volunteers for us as a kennel assistant after school.

We are an RCVS registered training practice and are proud that many of our nurse trainees have gone on to now hold senior nursing positions in the practice. Many will also have started out as kennel assistants (part time) or animal care assistants (full time). These positions allow potential student nurse candidates the opportunity to gain important experience, as we usually only consider applicants who have gained some practical animal handling experience, or who have achieved an animal care qualification at college, to become student veterinary nurses. If you are interested in training to become a veterinary nurse the most current information regarding the training and qualifications available is on the RCVS website at http://findavet.rcvs.org.uk/veterinary-careers/i-want-to-be-a-veterinary...
If you are already working as a Qualified Veterinary Nurse and seeking your next role we welcome speculative applications, and will contact you when we have a suitable vacancy.
