The Role
Here at Pool Farm Vets we are looking for a Registered Veterinary Nurse to work on a part-time temporary contract basis with the possibility of that becoming permanent. The ideal candidate would be able to aid us in the day-to-day smooth running of our practice. You will be able to place catheters, take blood, run the laboratory tests, monitor anaesthetics, obtain radiographic images and complete other schedule 3 procedures. Our nurses are given the opportunity to regularly scrub into orthopaedic, laparoscopic and soft tissue surgeries. You will also be involved in admitting and discharging day patients, alongside nurse clinics.
The rota will include working 30 hours per week which can be flexible between 3 and 5 days. There will be 1 in 3 Saturday morning consultations. We do not expect our nurses to do out of hours although there is the opportunity to be involved in the hospitalisation rota if wanted. VetsNow cover our out-of-hours emergencies.
The salary for this role is up to £30,000 FTE depending on experience.
About Us
The practice is based in the beautiful rural village of Betley on the Cheshire/Staffordshire/Shropshire border.
Our facilities include an in-house Idexx lab, endoscopes, laparoscopic equipment, floating radiography table, infusion and drip pumps, air-conditioning throughout the surgery, and multi-parameter monitors including capnography for each anaesthesia station, blood gas monitors and separate isolation units to name but a few.
We have a lovely team made up of 6 Veterinary Surgeons, 4 Registered Veterinary Nurses, 2 Student Veterinary Nurses and 3 friendly Support Team Members. Two of our Vets are certificate holders, so medicine and surgery are practiced to a very high standard. We are a very close-knit team and now restrictions have eased we are starting to re-instate pub Friday to give us time together outside of work.
Each year we help to run the pet show at the village show and we are heavily involved with the running of the show - which is a lovely day out!
