Registered Veterinary Nurse

Wear Referrals is a large multi-disciplinary referral centre in the North-East of England and due to ongoing growth and expansion we require additional dedicated and talented qualified veterinary nurses to join our busy team.

Working as a nurse for Wear Referrals entails real nursing to a very high standard in our state of art Veterinary Hospital. We are a multidisciplinary practice with Neurology, Orthopaedic, Soft Tissue, Internal Medicine, Cardiology, Out of Hours and Rehabilitation teams. Practice facilities include a dedicated ICU ward for critical patients staffed 24 hours a day, in-house MRI & CT, 4 operating theatres, endoscopy and ultra-sound facilities and dedicated patient wards. Successful candidates will have opportunity to develop their own expertise with our multi-discipline referral and dedicated OOH team, working with leading surgeons in all fields.

Excellent social and clinical skills are a must, as well as the ability to commit to a rolling rota. Days, back shifts and Out of Hours roles are all available. Previous referral nursing experience is preferred, but not essential, as we offer full training and support.

Wear Referrals provide a competitive salary (including an additional 20% night allowance), CPD allowance, payment of professional registration fees, generous employer contribution pension scheme, professional indemnity cover, a cash health benefits and purchasing scheme, staff discount on our services and products, uniform, shoe allowance and free on site parking. Wear Referrals prides itself on being a leading UK training practice, dedicated to developing talent and promoting from within wherever possible and further study towards a nursing diploma or an equivalent is encouraged.
