Apply by: 28 April 2017
Department: Auxiliary, Oncology and Soft Tissue Service
Reports to: Head Nursing Auxiliary

Fitzpatrick Referrals Oncology and Soft Tissue is looking for an auxiliary to join its nursing team based at our veterinary hospital in Guildford, Surrey.

You will work with our dedicated team of surgeons, nurses and auxiliaries. No previous experience within referral practice is necessary, but experience in a veterinary or animal care role is preferred. You must be a committed person who will be dedicated to the care and welfare of our patients. Your ability to work independently, use initiative and communicate well within a team is of great importance, as well as a hard-working and eager nature.

As a key support role, the nursing auxiliary team works on a rotational basis in both theatres and wards. In theatres, the team helps to keep everything running as smoothly as possible. This involves helping veterinary nurses and surgeons prepare patients for surgery and looking after all equipment before, during and after surgery. In wards, the auxiliaries assist the nurses in the day to day care of our patients providing excellent care in a stress-free environment.

Fitzpatrick Referrals Oncology & Soft Tissue is a new state of the art animal hospital based on the edge of Guildford close to the beautiful Surrey countryside. It is the first of its kind in Europe and aims to change the way cancer is treated in companion animals.
