Part Time Registered Veterinary Nurse

We are looking for a registered veterinary nurse who really understands cats to join our mobile feline-only practice in Surrey. Considerable experience would be ideal but your ability to calmly, kindly and confidently handle cats is more important. As a home visit practice, our consultations take place on the floors of clients’ homes and if a procedure is required, our mobile surgery (affectionately known as ‘The Catmobile’) keeps the whole experience as stress-free for both the cat and the client as possible. Our nurses play a vital and active role in the practice and due to growing patient numbers we are looking forward to welcoming another nurse to the team.

We are looking for someone to join us for 2-3 days (10-20 hours) a week, with potential scope to increase as the practice grows. The hours and days required are somewhat flexible, but a typical day could be from 9:30am-3:30pm. For those looking for extra hours or a bit of variety in their week, we can provide support should you choose to locum at other practices on your days off. We do not generally work evenings or weekends so out of hours work is very rare and there are no in-patient duties required. A driving license is essential as our practice area includes most of Surrey within the M25, although most days will start and finish at our office in Coulsdon.

Pay can be tailored to suit the right person and we would be delighted to cover course fees for the ISFM certificate in feline nursing and most other feline-specific CPD activities as we feel this benefits the whole practice. We strongly believe that nurses are exceptionally qualified and talented individuals who should be allowed to practice their profession to the fullest – you are more likely to manage your own visits than clean a kennel here.

The Cat Doctor is a cat friendly, family friendly and supportive practice committed to improving the lives of cats (and nurses!) in Surrey and South West London. All team members are highly valued and we’re constantly looking for ways to improve our service so all thoughts and ideas are welcome. We love this job and think you will too. If you have a genuine interest in helping cats and don’t mind doing things a bit differently, please contact Amy on 07961 154886 or email vet@thecatdoctor.co.uk.

No recruitment agencies please.
