Principal Nurse Manager Job – Ilford

Total package up to £34,000 DOE

Working nights and weekends? Yes, but it’s still the most rewarding job in the industry

Our Principal Nurse Managers are leaders. Not only do they support and nurture Registered Veterinary Nurses, they also manage the clinical support team of Animal Care Assistants and Receptionists. Managing rotas, health and safety procedures and debt management also fall into the remit of this job - the success of our Ilford clinic hinges on this pivotal role.

Delivering high standards in clinical excellence

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. We expect our Principal Nurse Managers to lead by example and continuously drive high clinical standards.

That’s why we never get complacent

In return for your talent and commitment, we offer a generous CPD allowance, with various courses on offer including enrolment on the accredited Certificate of Veterinary Nursing in Emergency and Critical Care. For those more experienced candidates, support is available to gain the VTS (ECC). We will also cover VDS and RCVS fees.

Out-of-hours doesn’t necessarily mean out-of-reach

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. In Ilford, you will be fully supported by our District Manager and expert vet surgeons. Whether it’s sharing best practice or seeking advice on a particularly complex case, you will never be alone at Vets Now.

Your Opportunity

The Ilford team deals with both PDSA and private cases – there’s no such thing as routine when it comes to ECC.
