Job Description

Our client is looking for an enthusiastic and dedicated Head Nurse to join their close-kit team at their Ealing branch. You will have plenty of support to allow you to thrive in this role working on a rotation between Ops, Consultations, and Inpatient Care. However, they are flexible and the position can be tailored to your interests, for example if you prefer consulting or ops and inpatient care or nurse clinics, they have the capacity to allow you to focus on any areas you wish to (that is if you don’t want the full mix of everything).

They are a Nurse training practice, and you will be working alongside 1 experienced Clinical Director, 2 Veterinary Surgeons, 2 Nurses, 1 Administrator, 2 Receptionists and 1 Practice Manager. They benefit from specialist surgeons regularly visiting the Practice to provide orthopaedic procedures and laparoscopy services and offer EMS placements for Vet Students.

About the Role:

They would welcome both full and part time applicants. Typically, their RVNs work full time, carrying out a 40-hour week over 4 or 5 days. However, they know that everyone has demands and priorities outside of their career and they want to make it brilliantly easy for you to strike the right balance therefore they can discuss and offer condensed hours / days that work for you. There are no weekends or OOH.

About the Practice:

Our client is a busy first opinion practice in the heart of a lovely neighbourhood. There is a beautiful park in front of the practice that offers a lovely place for summer lunches, they are also a short walk from the underground station served by the Piccadilly line, they are also very close to Ealing Broadway.

The practice is equipped with digital x-ray, ultrasound, large endoscope, rhinoscope, multiparameter, suction, electrocautery, microscope connected to the camera and an internal laboratory for routine diagnostics. They have 2 large consulting rooms and a very bright reception and the upstairs floor is dedicated to office duties. They have an excellent and loyal client base which they value their relationships with, they also support any charity initiative, and they often receive pets from Cats protection and other local charities.
