Part Time Veterinary Nurse Job – Colchester

Total package up to £30,000 DOE pro rata

Stand out from the crowd and join the Vets Now family

Working part time offers a solution that overcomes the usual challenges of being an out-of-hours clinician. Our nurses can balance a career with a caring for a family, studying for an ECC certification or training for a marathon! We are a special breed at Vets Now and our people will always decide how our company develops and what path we take.

People are our core

We take pride and integrity in the work that we do and that’s why we are committed to investing in the career progression of our people. In return for your talent and commitment, we offer a CPD allowance of £750 per annum which can be allocated to various courses including enrolment on the accredited Certificate of Veterinary Nursing in Emergency and Critical Care. We also hold annual recognition awards and will cover VDS and RCVS fees.

You’ll never be alone at Vets Now

Our supportive UK 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. You will be fully supported in Colchester by our excellent Principal Nurse Manager, expert Vet Surgeons and the non-clinical team.

Make a difference and be the Vet Nurse you trained to be

We are at the forefront of emergency and critical care, making a real difference and saving the lives of pets each and every day. Working as an emergency vet nurse will expose you to a diverse range of cases that you simply won’t see in general practice.

Your Opportunity

Colchester is a very busy and successful clinic. We are looking for registered Veterinary Nurses to work two out of three Sundays and a share of bank holidays which includes Christmas and New Year. Weekend one will be 0800-1400, weekend two will be 1400-2200 and weekend three will be off.

If you relish the diverse caseload that ECC naturally brings, this job is for you.
