Fitzpatrick Referrals is calling all Registered Veterinary Nurses who are night owls to join its specialist veterinary orthopaedics and neurology practice in Eashing, Surrey.

We are looking for enthusiastic and compassionate individuals who have a particular interest in the provision of ward-based nursing care. The right candidate will join a team of nurses, veterinary care assistants and vets to deliver the high standard of care our patients deserve. Overnight, we have 2-3 nurses, 3 veterinary care assistants and a vet on site all dedicated to looking after our inpatients.

You will be a registered and experienced nurse who is forward-thinking, shows empathy and demonstrates exemplary teamwork. Previous experience in referral nursing would be beneficial, but we also encourage applications from registered veterinary nurses with post-qualification, first-opinion practice and/or ECC experience.

We have two part-time roles working 5 nights on, 9 nights off, Tuesday-Saturday every other week. Each shift is a 12-hour waking shift with a paid rest break. We provide full induction, mentoring and support to enhance your skills in advanced nursing care for our orthopaedic and neurological patients.

In return, we offer a pay scale based on post-qualification years of experience, RCVS registration, funded CPD, a company pension scheme, enhanced maternity/paternity, adoption leave and holiday, life assurance and an award-winning employee assistance programme.

We also offer referral nursing experience days for qualified RVNs to come and spend the day with us and find out what it is like to work in a busy, specialist referral practice. If this is something you would be interested in, please get in touch with us.

Early applications are encouraged and we reserve the right to close for applications before the closing date.
