Head Nurse – Bristol

Location:
Bristol
Position:
Head Nurse

“Come and lead our amazing team of nurses”

About Us:

The Vet was co-founded by Jane Baldwin, a Head Nurse who wanted to do things differently for veterinary nurses and for clients.  Jane is an inspiration to our nursing team and leads from the front to ensure every clinic is valuing and utilising our nursing skills.

We expect our nurses to be an active part of the team carrying out Schedule 3 procedures as well as their usual duties such as take bloods, place IVs, monitor anaesthetics, and run nurse clinics – you can certainly expect a varied case load.

As the Head Nurse you will be a key part of the leadership team working alongside the Business Manager and Head Vet.  You will also be part of our Head Nurse team across all clinics (we have 9 in total), working together to learn from each other and develop new initiatives.

As a respected member of the team we also encourage you to be involved with in-house CPD lectures, whether just as free learning or to give yourself if you’re brave enough!
