Registered Veterinary Nurse (Full Time/ Part Time)
The Finchley Vet, High Road, North Finchley
Salary £24000-27000 p.a. – (pro-rated)
Having read through some other job adverts, we are sad to report we have:
NO amazingly beautiful rolling countryside to walk your dog in
NO exciting out of hours cases (we don’t do out of hours)
NO cake (well occasionally – but only if one of us can be arsed to make it!)
BUT – what we do have is the ability to treat each other with respect. We have a great team, we support one another and we tend to get rid of clients who can’t behave themselves in a civilised manner. We are rapidly growing first opinion (small animal) practice which means that we are always pushing to do things better for our patients, clients and staff and we are looking for someone who would like to join us and help us to do things even better.
We expect that you will be an RVN and although vast experience is certainly not a pre-requisite, you must be happy to learn, develop and grow. We are a shining example of how to do customer service right and although we can always be better, we think we are rather good at it. You must be on board with that. That sometimes means things like putting on a happy face for new clients when things are going crazy or carving out a minute or two to let a client know that their cat is ok after his castration, even when your to do list is far from finished.
We hire top quality staff and then give them the tools to do a top-quality job. We don’t like to cut corners and that means that this job isn’t going to suit everyone.
The full-time role would be a 40 hour week and there is a 1 in 3 Saturday morning rota.
We would love to talk to you about the job and any of our team would be more than happy to give you the dirt on what working at the Finchley Vet is really like – if you would like a chat with me or any of the team, give me (Oli) a call on 0203 603 4441 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Or forego the chitter chatter and send us your CV – whichever works for you. Either way, check out this rather cringeworthy video of me giving a tour of the practice when we opened 5 years ago – it gives you a little idea of what we are about.
