RVN – Ilford, East London

We are seeking a Registered Veterinary Nurse with some experience to join our small but perfectly formed team at our Ilford Clinic in East London. This is a lovely opportunity to become more involved in how the clinic runs and take your first steps into management of a small team. Elena, our fantastic, experienced vet, has a passion for exotics, so a shared interest in exotics would be brilliant but not essential! We are very much part of the local community at Ilford, and you can tell how much our clients value us, by all our lovely Google reviews!

We are a family-run practice that was started in 1952 by Arthur Goddard. We are now the largest family-run veterinary practice in the UK and have 44 branches, 3 hospitals, and our own nursing college. We have a great reputation for looking after our staff; over 20% of our team have been with us 10 years or more and we’re really proud of our many 5* colleague reviews on Indeed!

We would love the successful candidate to share your knowledge to develop others around you, and provide Clinical Coaching support for Carys, our fantastic VNA. We can provide in-house training to become a clinical coach through our own nurse training college. In addition, we would like you to use your skills for organising and planning, to ensure the smooth running of the branch. If you thrive on providing support to vets, clients, and your team, love your time both in theatre, and providing great pet care advice to clients, if you believe that life is better with pets, then our company culture will be ideal for you.

The role is full-time (40 hrs.) with some Saturdays (afternoons only, 2-5pm). There are no nights or OOH as these are provided by our Tier 3 RCVS accredited practice in Wanstead.

We offer an excellent benefits package including a fantastic colleague discount scheme, enrolment on to our Simplyhealth Cashback Plan which provides cashback on many routine medical costs such as dental care, physiotherapy, optician, chiropractor fees, and other medical needs, 24-hour employee helpline, cycle to work scheme, generous shopping and leisure discounts, fully funded CPD and paid for BVNA and RCVS registration fees.

If you are interested in this rewarding role and working with a well-established independent family-run business, and would like to know more, please call Fiona Stephens on 07507 694673 or apply now.
