Theatre Nurse (Maternity Cover - 30 hours per week)

We are seeking to employ a registered Veterinary Nurse to work as part of our Theatre Nursing team. This role is to cover a period of maternity leave and is expected to last until February 2020.

This is an exciting opportunity to work in state-of-the-art theatres, working alongside renowned specialists in Orthopaedics, Soft Tissue and Neurology.   The Theatre nursing team are actively encouraged to utilise their skills with plentiful opportunity to assist the Surgeons as a scrub nurse for a number of complex surgical procedures, including joint replacements and interventional radiography.   This is the ideal working environment for those wishing to pursue advanced qualifications such as the American VTS in Surgery.

The ideal candidate will demonstrate a high standard of nursing care, a desire to learn and a capability to work under pressure.   Previous experience in a referral environment is desirable but not essential.   You will be involved with teaching and supervision of Veterinary and Veterinary Nursing undergraduates on clinical rotations.     Flexibility will be necessary as the post will require participation in the OOH rota.

Closing date: Thursday 30 May 2019.
