We have an amazing opportunity for a Veterinary Nurse who is comfortable working with cats and dogs and would like to also develop or showcase their skillset with exotics and wildlife, with a passionate like-minded team!
In this role, you will be the key nurse for our cat and dog clients and you will also be caring for a variety of exotic animals and wildlife species. If you do not have previous experience with exotics, all you need is an interest in learning and we will help you develop your skillset further! Of course, any previous experience would be beneficial – but the key is to have an interest in the field. In addition, the role will cover reception on a rotating basis, to assist our dedicated client relations while our head receptionist is on maternity leave. This will give you the opportunity to interact with our clients in a different setting. The role is a full-time position, working 40 hours per week. Our clinic is open 7 days, so there will be rotating weekend shifts, but these will be approximately 3-4 days per month.
