Job description

Are you a Vet Nurse who is passionate about animal welfare, loves dogs and is looking for an excellent work life balance? We are seeking registered Vet Nurses to join our Veterinary Teams based in rehoming centres in Cardiff, Glasgow and Loughborough.

Dogs Trust is the largest dog welfare charity in the UK with a nationwide network of rehoming centres and charity shops. Last year, Dogs Trust centres cared for over 9,000 dogs; we never put a healthy dog down.

In this key role, you will work closely with the Dogs Trust rehoming centre team and the centre Veterinary Surgeon to help provide excellent veterinary care and welfare to our dogs. You will be involved with all aspects of surgery, assisting with consultations, maintaining clinical protocols, monitoring our recovery kennels, and you will also be a point of contact regarding veterinary assistance for the centre team, helping to ensure that protocols are adhered to by providing informal, occasional training to staff.

To be successful in this role you will be a Registered Veterinary Nurse with an appreciation of handling dogs in accordance with Dogs Trust guidelines, using positive reinforcement techniques. Experience of working in a rehoming/charity establishment would be desirable, but a full induction is provided. You will be able to show empathy and understanding towards both dogs and people and be committed to delivering the highest standards of patient care and customer service. You will also need a full, clean UK driving licence.

The role benefits from a Monday to Friday working schedule, with no out of hours or weekend commitment. Dogs Trust actively encourage professional development, with opportunities to work alongside our in-house behavioural teams, and a generous CPD allowance (including access to external opportunities). Additionally, RCVS fees for Vet Nurses are paid.

To apply for this position please visit our website.

At Dogs Trust we value diversity and we're committed to creating an inclusive culture.  We actively encourage applications from people of all backgrounds, abilities and cultures and believe that a diverse workforce will help us to achieve our mission. Should you need any adjustments to the recruitment process, either at application or interview stage, please contact us on the email address listed on the job advert.
