We are looking for an RVN to join us as the practice expands!
We are looking for an RVN who has a caring bedside manner, works well in a team and isn't afraid to muck in. In return, we'll offer the chance to run nursing clinics, funded CPD, no OOH, and a great working environment where you can get to know your clients and patients.
A bit about the practice. Greensands Vets has been in Woburn Sands for over 12 years and the current team has been in place for the last 2.5 years since Derek Attride & Emma Pillow bought the practice. The team here is friendly & welcoming and we share a passion for pets (& cake). We are genuinely customer-focused because we know just how much our pets mean to us all. For us, client care is as important as patient care and it isn't just a box-ticking exercise, it's the driving force behind everything we do.
Our client base is well-educated and caring, so it's a pleasure to consult and providing continuity of care is really important to us and them. That we are not a corporate is an enormous selling point. We're growing month on month and have already added a second consult room and are now looking to make room for a third.
Our nursing team is really enthusiastic and all our qualified nurses consult as well as working in theatre and kennels and on the reception desk. Our nurses currently run weight management and Senior Pet clinics, are the main point of contact for puppy & kitten owners with monthly weigh & worm consults plus seeing all post op checks, second vaccinations etc. There is scope to do more if that's where your interests lie! We are a nurse-training centre with one student nurse and are RCVS accredited. We are also a silver level cat friendly practice and we have enjoyed finding all sorts of ways to improve a cat's visit with us, despite the limitations of a small waiting room.
The surgery itself is well-equipped with digital & dental X-ray, a new ultrasound scanner with colour Doppler, anaesthetic monitoring equipment and in-house Idexx lab. In the 2.5 years we've been here, Derek & I have been amazed at the wide variety of cases we've seen and treated. We work our cases up fully and perform most procedures here but for those cases requiring specialist equipment or expertise, Davies Vet Specialists and the RVC are only 30-45 minutes away and offer great care and advice. All OOH care is provided by Vets Now, located just a 10 minute drive away.
Woburn Sands is a fantastic place to work, with local shops, cafes, pubs & delis in the village itself and mountain biking trails, heathland & woodland for walking just at the top of the high street. The beautiful Georgian town of Woburn with some fantastic restaurants, pubs and the Abbey, safari and deer park is just a mile away. When only a big city will do, London is only a 45 minute train journey and it's an easy drive to Cambridge or Bicester Village. Milton Keynes itself is surprisingly good for shopping, so don't think it's all concrete cows & roundabouts!!
