About the Job

Weekend Vet Nurse

Up to £13ph plus benefits 

Provide emergency care at a time when it’s needed most

If you're looking for a rewarding career in a fast-paced but friendly environment then Vets Now is for you. Our ethos is simple – to give people and their pets the care and support they deserve, at the time they need it most and our Vet Surgeons are vital to delivering this ethos.

Join us for a work life less ordinary

Working weekends at Vets Now offers a solution that overcomes the usual challenges of being an out-of-hours Vet Nurse. You can balance a career with caring for a family, working around another job or studying for an emergency and critical care certificate. This is a great opportunity to work with an established team in our Colchester clinic where your commitment will be 3 shifts per month, on a rolling rota pattern. Working these hours on a permanent contract really gives you the best of both worlds, flexibility and stability. 

Week 1: Sunday 8am – 2pm 

Week 2: Off

Week 3: Saturday 6pm – 11pm // Sunday 2pm – 11pm 

Fair share of bank holidays
