Reports to:         Nurse Manager

Job Summary:

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a passionate and enthusiastic qualified Registered Veterinary Nurse to join our vibrant Neurology Nursing Team working in a busy, purpose-built clinic that is fully equipped with the facilities commensurate with a flagship specialist veterinary centre. The position will involve all aspects of nursing care of inpatients.

Successful Candidate:

You will have excellent all-round nursing skills, with a passion and drive for delivering outstanding client and patient care. You will be a team player who enjoys working in a supportive working environment whilst also being able to use your initiative and challenge the status quo.  Referral nursing experience is not necessary as full training will be provided.

This is a ward based position that focuses on hands-on, exemplary nursing care based on the individual needs of each patient. The neurology nurse is highly involved with all aspects of nursing care of patients with varied neurological conditions, including traumatic brain injuries, inflammatory CNS conditions, seizures and spinal surgeries.

Although fast paced and busy, this is a very rewarding role.

For the period of maternity cover, this is a full time position, 40 hours per week between 6.30am-6.30pm Monday to Friday,  and a 1:5 weekend rota with compensated time off and paid overtime.
