Exciting opportunity for a full-time Head Registered Veterinary Nurse at Kings Veterinary Centre

Having outgrown our current premises in Melton Mowbray, we are moving to a brand-new purpose-built veterinary hospital and are seeking an experienced Head RVN to drive the business forward, bringing new ideas and motivation to the current close-knit team. This role will suit a confident RVN who is enthusiastic, forward-thinking and highly motivated 

We are fortunate to have a team of experienced vets, RVN’s, and dedicated support staff all of whom share our passion for providing high standards of veterinary care. A number of our RVNs are certificate holders; we actively encourage and fund these. In addition to a generous personal CPD allowance, we hold regular in-house CPD days for the whole team to continually improve and advance our standards. The whole team has access to Vetstream. 

As you would expect, our practices are well-equipped including multi-parameter monitoring, digital x-ray, ultrasound, in-house biochemistry and haematology machines. 

Our full-time nurses work 4 days a week on an 8am - 6pm or 8:30am - 6:30pm shift pattern with paid lunch breaks. Rotating between inpatient, theatre and consulting roles throughout the week, nurses can get involved in a varied caseload of small animals.

Currently seeking hospital status through the RCVS Practice Standards Scheme, we pride ourselves on providing our own out-of-hours service to our clients. With dedicated night nurses, there are no nights on call in this role. However, participation in our 1:5 Saturday and Sunday day rota (though currently 1:7), along with an equal share of bank holidays is expected. 

If you would like to be part of a friendly team, with people who understand the importance of good work/life balance, we would really love to hear from you. 

  • £30-£34k per annum
  • Paid lunch breaks 
  • 6 weeks holiday including bank holidays 
  • 4 day week
  • Pension scheme 
  • RCVS fees paid 
  • Full access to Vetstream
  • CPD and VN certificates funded and encouraged 
  • Generous staff discount scheme for your pets
