RVN Position

July 2019

Are you looking for...

  • Nurse Clinics?

  • Case continuity?

  • Supportive management?

  • Clients who really care about their pets?

  • A truly independent clinic, where decisions can be made quickly?

  • Happy and friendly staff, who genuinely work together as a team?

  • The opportunity to develop your clinical and leadership skills?

If so, we have a fantastic opportunity for an RVN to join us on a part or full-time basis.

You will need to have very high levels of customer service, as our clients expect a gold standard approach to care. 

We work cases up fully, and with our visiting referral surgeons, there is rarely a need to refer patients elsewhere. 

You would be based at Woodham Lane Vets, but occasionally you may be required to work at our Chertsey clinic. Our two branches are only 10 minutes apart, and work very closely together.

There is no out of hours.

We have a very pro-active approach to CPD, and are a friendly practice team, with all the kit you would expect in a modern clinic. We also have regular visiting specialists, so lots of opportunity for referral level nursing experience too. We run nurse clinics and would encourage our new RVN to carry out nurse procedures too.

We are looking for someone who has the enthusiasm and ability to look after the nursing aspects of a brand new clinic, and as we are growing very quickly, we will be recruiting further staff, so this position has the option and potential to develop into a senior position.

You would be working alongside a full time veterinary surgeon, receptionist, and if part-time, overlapping with another part time RVN.

We have: 


  • 15 minute appointments

  • Low rise consult tables - so no lifting heavy dogs! 

  • Nurse clinics 

  • Visiting soft tissue and orthopaedic surgeons 

  • Visiting cardiologist

  • Digital X-ray 

  • Ultrasound 

  • Electrocautary

  • Suction 

  • Laparoscope (at Chertsey)

  • Patient monitoring 

  • In-house lab

  • Qualified nurses 

  • Very capable reception team 

  • Full time practice manager 

  • Veterinary ambulance 

What makes us different?

We are genuinely independent - the practices are owned and run by Sarah and Tristan.

We listen to our vets and nurses - after having worked for many less than brilliant bosses over the years, Sarah and Tristan strive to be approachable, friendly, caring and understanding bosses, with an open door management policy.​

We have a lovely, friendly team, with a wealth of experience and skills from our vet and nursing team.

Get in touch with us for a confidential and informal chat, our email: careers@chertseyvets.co.uk, is only accessed by Sarah and Tristan, and so is fully confidential.
