The Role

Here at Eaton Veterinary Practice, we are looking for a Registered Veterinary Nurse to join our team. The nursing duties will include inpatient care, theatre, nurse consultations, and dispensary. There is occasionally some reception cover but most of the time, our Nurses can concentrate on being Nurses!

This is a full-time role working 36 hours per week over 4 days, including two 5.30 pm finishes and two 7.30 pm finishes plus 1 in 4 Saturdays. Saturdays usually finish around 3:00pm depending on whether any emergencies are admitted. There are no out of hours in this role.

The salary is up to £24,697 depending on experience.

About Us

The practice is located in a village setting on the outskirts of Norwich, a vibrant cultural city with easy access to the countryside and 30 minutes from some of the most beautiful beaches in the country. We have excellent links to the A47, A140, and A11 within 5 minutes of the practice.

The surgery itself is in a modern, purpose-built building with a spacious waiting area, good ventilation, four consultation rooms including a dedicated nurse consult room, theatre, and imaging room. We also have a preparation area that allows a good view of the cattery, with kennels also close by for easy monitoring.

We currently have 5 Veterinary Surgeons, 5 Registered Veterinary Nurses, 3 Student Veterinary Nurses, and 4 Receptionists. One of our Vets is a certificate holder in Small Animal Medicine, and we are keen to encourage and support further study across the practice. We would especially welcome a nurse with a keen interest in offering and developing nurse clinics.
