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

It take a certain calibre of vet nurse to thrive in the challenging world of emergency and critical care. The unsocial hours aren’t for everyone and the unpredictable caseload can be difficult to navigate. However, it’s exciting and incredibly rewarding…you’re saving lives every single day.

Career Development

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 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.

Supportive network

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.

Unique and exciting caseload

The established and experienced veterinary team in Reading are motivated by driving clinical excellence and providing pet care at a time when it’s needed most. They deal with a busy private caseload and are looking for a MRCVS registered veterinary nurse to relish the diverse caseload that ECC naturally brings, especially during busy nights and weekends.

The rota pattern involves working two out of three weekends and an average of 12-15 shifts a month. Shifts will be a mixture of weekday nights, weekend days, weekend nights and bank holidays. If you’re looking for routine operations and daytime hours, this isn’t the job for you
