About the Job

Vet Nurse – Peterborough

Up to £30,600 DOE plus benefits

Thrive on saving lives and making a lasting difference? At Vets Now Peterborough you can

We are at the forefront of emergency and critical care, making a real difference and saving the lives of pets each and every day. Working as an emergency Vet Nurse will expose you to a diverse range of cases that you simply won’t see in general practice. Be the Vet Nurse you trained to be, with a full and supportive team. 

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 skills. Yet with unpredictability comes opportunity. With a Vet Nurse role at Vets Now you will be exposed to cases you simply wouldn’t experience in general practice.

We are looking for a Full-time Vet Nurse who can commit to a fair rota which always strives to achieve the best work-life balance for our Vet Nurses. This would not include every weekend, and would likely be every other weekend on either days or nights. Average of 12-14 shifts per month.

Shifts may include: 

Weekday nights 6.30pm – 9am

Weekends: 9pm – 9am

Saturday: 12noon – 9pm

Sunday: 9am – 9pm

Stand out from the crowd

We take pride and integrity in the work that we do and that’s why we are committed to investing in the career progression of our people. In return for your talent and commitment, we offer a generous CPD allowance, with various courses on offer including enrolment on the accredited Certificate of Veterinary Nursing in Emergency and Critical Care. For those more experienced candidates, support is available to gain the VTS (ECC). We will also cover VDS and RCVS fees.

What's in it for you?

Recognising hard work is really important to us. Our employees are our greatest asset, which is why we offer a first class benefits and rewards package that includes:

  • Comprehensive CPD allowance
  • 6.6 weeks annual leave
  • Individual Private Health Care Insurance
  • Pension contributions
  • Full professional membership
  • 50% discounted staff pet care
  • Death in service of two times annual salary
  • Membership of employee wellbeing programme
  • Company sick pay scheme
  • Company maternity, paternity and adoption pay scheme
  • Your birthday as a day off

Your Opportunity

Our Peterborough clinic is a busy, recently refurbished clinic with a broad caseload, looking for motivated, organised, positive individuals who thrive in a busy environment. Excellent environment and opportunities for developing skills in ECC. We are looking for a RCVS registered Vet Nurse to relish the diverse caseload that ECC naturally brings, especially during busy nights and weekends. If you’re looking for routine operations and daytime hours, this isn’t the job for you.
