About the role

We are looking for an RVN to step into our maternity leave role working a 4 on and 8 off rota (with some additional night shifts to average out at 37 hours per week over 52 weeks).

The role involves working alongside the on-site veterinary surgeon to care for hospitalised patients and assisting with emergencies as they arise.

This role could be ideal for an RVN looking to dip their toe into the world of nights and ECC, without making a permanent commitment.

There is state of the art diagnostic support at Mandeville Hospital with a new CT scanner, a diploma holder in imaging providing our CT and ultrasound service, a strong medical team, and experienced surgeons routinely conducting advanced orthopaedic, soft tissue, and minimally invasive surgery.

Although this is maternity cover, we are loyal to our colleagues and would endeavour to find a permanent position within the group that would suit if you wished to stay on.
