Vacancy Details


Permanent Nurse in Somerset

Salary up to £34,000 DOE plus up to £5000 Relocation Allowance plus £2500 Welcome Bonus

We are looking for a Registered Veterinary Nurse to join our friendly team. Our Night nurses typically work 1 week on and 1 week off but other shift patterns and part time roles can be discussed. This gives the candidate the opportunity to work alongside our amazing team seeing a varied caseload and also the chance to be involved with emergency and critical care cases.

Our small-animal Veterinary Hospital is situated in the town of Portishead, and we have been in the heart of the community for over 20 years. Portishead is in North Somerset on the Severn Estuary, less than 10 miles west of Bristol.
We are Portishead`s only veterinary hospital with a team of vets and qualified nurses who are available 24/7 with round the clock on-site care. Amongst the team we have a certificate holder in ECC and we have vets at various stages of certificates in medicine, exotics and surgery. We offer a high standard of patient care in a clean and professional working environment, and we are proud to have consistently achieved Tier 3 Hospital Status.

The practice is well equipped with various diagnostic and clinical tools, including laparoscopy, endoscopy, ultrasonography, digital radiography (including dental radiography), in-house laboratory, multi-parameter monitoring equipment, and much more!
We have been awarded Gold in the ICC cat friendly clinic awards and the hospital has separate cat and dog waiting rooms for clients, separate inpatient wards for cats / dogs / isolation, and dedicated consulting times during the week for cat-only appointments.

It`s really important to us that no one feels overworked, breaks are taken, and that staff get to leave on time. We are an incredibly friendly and supportive bunch, so we want someone that will fit in and enjoy caring for their colleagues as well as their patients. Out of work we enjoy dog walks, pub trips, quizzes, and everything in between.

Please give us a call today if this role is for you, on 01280 850575..
