Registered Veterinary Nurse (RVN) Recruitment
We are always on the look-out for highly motivated, enthusiastic RVNs who share our passion for providing patients with outstanding clinical care. In this hands-on, out-of-hours role in emergency and critical care (ECC) you’ll work alongside an experienced veterinary surgeon to provide immediate emergency care for sick and injured pets, triage emergency cases as they arrive in your clinic, and be a key point of contact for pet owners.
This is a varied position that offers a great opportunity to use all of your clinical skills to make a real difference to the lives of the pets you treat, and their owners. In return, you’ll become part of a team that is committed and professional and values working in a fast-paced but supportive environment where teamwork is vital.

Vets Now has three 24/7 emergency and specialty hospitals in Glasgow, Swindon and Manchester. Quality emergency and critical care (ECC) is at the core of everything our hospitals do. Each one is fully equipped to provide expertise in disciplines including surgery, internal medicine, oncology, ophthalmology, exotics and ECC itself.
As a referral vet nurse, you’ll work alongside experienced vet surgeons. This hands-on position will give you the opportunity to grow your clinical skills while, at the same time, experiencing a varied and exciting caseload. In return, you’ll become part of a team that values working in a fast-paced but friendly environment where collaboration is encouraged.
Referral vet nurses are absolutely vital to the success of our hospitals and, in this role, you’ll work within a team of clinicians and support staff who are constantly striving to provide referring practices and their patients with the very best clinical care.
