Founded in 1891 Dogs Trust is the largest dog welfare charity in the UK. Our mission is to bring about the day when all dogs can enjoy a happy life, free from the threat of unnecessary destruction. With approximately 15,000 dogs cared for annually and commitment to never putting a healthy dog down, we are always busy! We are looking for someone motivational and solutions focused to support the great team of veterinary nurses that we have at Dogs Trust as our VN Coordinator.

This is a senior post within the Department and will involve regular visits to our Rehoming Centres to meet with the teams on site and establish good relationships with the Management team, Regional Managers and central Dogs Trust departments as well as the Rehoming Centre Veterinary Surgeons. The post holder will be responsible for managing the external relationships on behalf of Dogs Trust for the centre teams such as equipment providers, pharmacy companies, laboratories and wholesalers. The post will work closely with the Veterinary Surgeons within the department and be actively involved in delivering training and may involve providing occasional clinical nursing work in collaboration with the other 5 RVNs working within the Veterinary Department. Our team work with veterinary practices to ensure that we offer the best welfare for our dogs, whilst considering charitable funds.
We are seeking a Registered Veterinary Nurse with a commitment to our work, aims and values.
