Job Description

Our client is looking for a dedicated Registered Veterinary Nurse to join their team at Thrapston on a permanent basis! Their Nurses are rota’d to set shifts per day including ops nurse, inpatient nurse, consulting nurse, and floating nurse.

About the Role:

Their people are at the heart of everything that they do, that’s why they know that work-life balance is vital in supporting their people to be their best selves. Their flexible approach to rota patterns and working hours offers a balance that truly flexes with you and your lifestyle no matter what stage you are in your career.

They have some nurses that work 4 long days and some that work 4.5 days slightly shorter a week so they can be slightly flexible with this. The opening hours are from 8.00am-7.00pm. There will be 1 in 4 Saturdays morning which are currently from 8.30am-12.30pm. There are no out of hours.  They are happy to speak to both full and part-time candidates for this role.

About the Practice:

Thrapston is a beautiful market town in Northamptonshire with excellent transport links within the neighbouring city of Peterborough.
