Head Nurse

Permanent Nurse in Northamptonshire

Are you ready for an exciting new step in your veterinary nursing career?
This is a fantastic opportunity for an experienced REVN with good horse handling and clinical skills to help develop and improve the day-to-day running of our practice. The successful candidate will retain involvement with first opinion equine veterinary nursing including theatre nursing, advanced dentistry, in-patient care and lameness work ups, as well as supporting and developing the nursing team of 8 (including another REVN and 2 student EVNs), therefore clinical coaching experience would be an advantage.
The role of Head Equine Nurse is also key to our ability to provide a high level of clinical standards. This is achieved through daily leadership of the nursing team across our 2 equine clinics and providing a nursing voice as part of the management team. Therefore, excellent communication skills are essential, as well as enthusiasm and resilience in what can be a challenging but ultimately rewarding industry! To be effective in the role you must be able to multi-task and adapt to sudden changes, planning and prioritising effectively in line with business needs whilst ensuring patient and client care remains high.

This is a full-time position, including an equal share in the out of hours on call rota, which is currently one night per week and one weekend in five.
