RVN

Wear Referrals is a multi-disciplinary, award winning specialist veterinary referral hospital just off Junction 60 of the A1. Our £5 million purpose-built hospital is one of the most advanced veterinary facilities in the UK, with plans for further expansion already underway.

With ongoing growth and success based on an outstanding reputation and a commitment to excellence, Wear Referrals, part of the Linnaeus family, are looking to recruit additional RVNs to join our referral nursing team as our business continues to expand.

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 and specialists in all fields.

Excellent social and clinical skills are a must, as well as the ability to commit to a rolling rota including some weekend and bank holiday shifts. Previous referral nursing experience is preferred, but not essential, as we offer full training and support to RVNs joining the practice from primary care via our 8 Team Leader Nurses and 2 full time Clinical Nurse Managers.

Wear Referrals provide a competitive salary and CPD allowance, payment of professional registration fees, generous employer contribution pension scheme, professional indemnity cover, health care and purchasing scheme, staff discount, uniform, shoe allowance and free onsite 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.
