***Registered Veterinary Nurse – Luxstowe Vets – Liskeard, Cornwall***
Are you a fabulous RVN looking to join a supportive practice, where you can join a close-knit and friendly team in caring for our customers and their beloved pets?
We at Luxstowe Vets are committed to not only the growth and development of our employees, but we also place team welfare and a work-life balance as a priority.
We are looking for a full or part-time RVN to join our friendly and experienced team, that really are one in a million.
Does this sound like the role for you? If so, please read on!
We are an RCVS accredited Small Animal practice, with an extensive range of modern equipment including endoscopy/bronchoscopy, ultrasound, digital x-ray (including dental), diathermy and cutting-edge anaesthetic monitors. We are also able to offer laparoscopic spays and TTA/TTARs in house.
We pride ourselves on improving everyone’s quality of life, by not only providing gold standard care to our patients and clients, but also to our team. Our relaxed work environment means everyone enjoys working together and are always willing to lend a hand! With an open approach to sharing ideas, we feel we as a team can shape to future of our practice!
We enjoy getting together outside of work, whether we go to the beaches, take on an escape room or do something more adventurous like our recent visit to the Adrenaline Quarry water park. We also have practice events including our Christmas party, summer BBQ or our vets meetings /curry nights.
Liskeard is a beautiful market town, full of independent shops, cafes, pubs and fantastic architecture. It’s also a great hub from which to explore Cornwall, due to its prime location between the stunning countryside of Bodmin Moors to the north and the dramatic Cornish coastline to the south.
About the Role:
We are looking for a full or part-time RVN to join our friendly and experienced team. This role would encourage the nurturing and development of new techniques, as well as allowing advancement of existing skills. We want our colleagues to enjoy coming to work and encourage an open and supportive environment, which allows our team to flourish and reach their full potential. There is opportunity for professional development and expansion of existing skills.
Full or part time roles will be considered, both with an equal share of the out of hours rota (on average 1 week in every 8-9 weeks on-call) to include Saturday mornings (on average of 2 Saturday mornings in 8-9 weeks). This involves being available to the on call vet during the night only. You will have the days to yourself during this week.
The full time role would consist of 40 hours per week, made up of 4x 08.15am – 5.00pm days, and 1x 08.30am – 06.30pm day.
What Our Team Have to Say:
“I’ve just enjoyed a very pleasant lunch hour sitting on the quay watching the boats and the birds and feeling grateful that I work in such a beautiful area with such a great team.”
“Hand on heart, couldn’t recommend a practice more – plus they throw an excellent summer BBQ and Christmas party!’’
“I came here as a locum five years ago and haven’t left! It didn’t take long to notice how well the team work together; the nurses are excellent (experienced, helpful, and cheery) as are the reception team. This practice is better managed than any practice I have worked at in my 27 years since qualifying. The vets have a range of different strengths and really pull together to support each other.”
“I’ve worked as part of the Luxstowe family for nearly 6 years, and like any family there have been ups and downs, but I wouldn’t change my time there for the world.”
