About the Job

Head Vet Nurse 

Up to £42,000 DOE plus benefits

Working nights and weekends? Yes, but it’s still the most rewarding job in the industry.

Let’s be honest, working as an out-of-hours emergency vet is challenging. With unsociable hours and a diverse range of cases a career in emergency and critical care will test your clinical and surgical skills. Yet with unpredictability comes opportunity. With a Head Nurse role at Vets Now you will be exposed to cases you simply wouldn’t experience in general practice.

Strive to be the best in the business

It take a certain calibre of Vet Nurse to thrive in the challenging world of emergency and critical care. The unsocial hours aren’t for everyone and the unpredictable caseload can be difficult to navigate. However, it’s exciting and incredibly rewarding…you’re saving lives every single day.

Delivering high standards.

The Ilford veterinary team are motivated by driving clinical excellence and providing pet care at a time when it’s needed most. Being a Head Vet Nurse will involve triage, emergency and lifesaving treatment as well as, management duties to ensure smooth running of the clinic. No two shifts will ever be the same.

You will have dedicated management time within your working week to focus on coaching and mentoring, among other duties, so that you can make the most of a high trained team of Vet Nurses.
