Sleeper by day, hero by night

Vets Now are seeking a Head Veterinary Nurse with a drive for clinical excellence and a passion for mentoring and developing a team. Dealing with both private and PDSA cases, you will experience a real diverse caseload and an opportunity to fully utilise your skillset- there’s no such thing as routine when it comes to Emergency and Critical Care.

A rolling rota pattern of 7 night shifts during a 3 week period ensures an excellent work/life balance.

Continual professional development

People are at the heart of what we do, that’s why we take a pioneering approach to people development. We have cemented our commitment to continuous development by heavily investing in CPD, ECC certification and coaching to give our staff the springboard they need to take their career to the next level.

Together we save pets’ lives

You will never be alone at Vets Now. The wider network of emergency clinics and specialty hospitals work in collaboration to ensure that we can offer the best emergency and critical care in the country. Whether it’s sharing best practice or seeking advice on a particularly complex case, you will never be alone at Vets Now.

Exceptional standards of client and pet care

Vets Now have revolutionised the way emergency veterinary care is provided. Since 2001, we have grown to become the UK’s leading provider of emergency and critical care, thanks in part to the dedication and clinical excellence of our clinic teams. Working as an out-of-hours emergency Head Nurse is challenging. The caseload is diverse and the hours can be unsociable. Yet with unpredictability comes opportunity.

What's in it for you?

Recognising hard work is really important to us. Our employees are our greatest asset which is why we offer a first class benefits and rewards package that includes:

  • 6.6 weeks annual leave
  • Pension contributions
  • Professional membership fee's
  • Free holiday accommodation in Arran
  • 50% discounted staff pet care plan
  • Death in service of twice your annual salary
  • Membership of employee wellbeing programme
  • Company sick pay scheme
  • Company maternity, paternity and adoption pay scheme
  • Your birthday as a day off! 

If you are a strong clinician that excels as an emergency Head Nurse and also takes real pride in mentoring and coaching others, we want to hear from you. Please contact David on 01383 841181 or email david.edment@vets-now.com
