My client, a small animal practice in West Hertfordshire are looking for a Registered Veterinary Nurse to join their team.
The practice do some exotics but the vast majority of patients are dogs, cats and small furries. Generally they have a fairly affluent client base but varies.
Their team is currently made up of 3 vets but works out about 2.5 full time, 3 registered nurses, two of whom have a great deal of experience, also 2 receptionists who basically job share the receptionist role and a Practice Manager.The premises are custom built and fully kitted up (except endoscope) and they have been going for about 10 years now.
The client are an independent practice and are proud of the way they do things, which is to a high standard, but on a very case by case basis – They want every client and animal to be considered and treated on their own merits.
