Exciting times at Uxbridge! We have created a new RVN role to support our continuing growth. This is a long-established, busy practice, in a vibrant area of London. We are well known in the local community and are proud of the standards of care that we offer to our very loyal clients. It is a fast-paced practice; with modern ways of thinking, and open to new ideas. We are a welcoming, supportive and friendly team with positive energy.
This role could suit a new graduate or someone with a little experience, as you would be well supported by the excellent nursing team. We would love someone to join the team who is a great communicator and has a passion for working with a broad range of cases from routine to emergency. No two days are ever the same! You would have the opportunity to manage your own nurse consults to support the vet team. There is also the opportunity for you to develop your clinical coaching skills as training can be provided by our own nurse training college. The role is 40 hours per week including 1:3 Saturday mornings. There is no routine on-calls, nights, or OOH’s but we do ask you to do one bank holiday a year at the hospital, time off in lieu is given for this shift. Working alongside 2 vets, a very experienced RVN, an SVN, VCA, and receptionist, the successful candidate will be involved in all aspects of nursing care. The practice has digital and dental x-ray and in-house blood machines.
We offer excellent pay and a very supportive working environment. Our industry-leading benefits package includes increasing holiday allowance, enrolment on to our Simplyhealth Cashback Plan which provides cashback on many routine medical costs such as dental care, physiotherapy, opticians, chiropractor fees, etc. and an employee assistance programme, plus generous shopping and leisure discounts, fully funded CPD and paid BVNA and RCVS registration fees! Transport links are good; the practice is close to the town centre and Uxbridge is well served by the Metropolitan/ Piccadilly tube lines and is close to the M40 and M25.
Goddard Veterinary Group is a family-run practice and was started in 1952 by Arthur Goddard. His son Philip took over the reins in the late ’90s and remains the practice principal. 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 please take a few minutes to look at as our numerous 4 and 5-star employee reviews on Indeed!
