Northvet Veterinary Group is a long-established vet practice in Orkney, a group of Islands just off the north coast of Scotland.

The Practice
We are a 10 vet mixed practice with 3 branch surgeries. Our main branch is in Kirkwall where most of our small animal work takes place, we also have a branch open 3 times per week for consultations in Stromness and a branch for farm animal and equine work in Harray.

Located just off the northern tip of Scotland we enjoy beautiful sandy beaches, visiting Orcas and other cetaceans, stunning scenery and lots of wildlife. Orkney has a great music scene with various festivals throughout the year, sports centres and clubs, wonderful restaurants and bars, art, culture and world-famous archaeology. No wonder it appears on the top 20 best places to live in the UK!

The Role
Due to one of our nurses planning to retire, we have an exciting opportunity for a new RVN to join our friendly and supportive team. Our modern surgery has excellent diagnostic equipment including digital (and digital dental) Xray, the latest in-house laboratory facilities and separate dog and cat wards. We are looking for an enthusiastic and compassionate veterinary nurse who works well within a small team.

The package
This full-time permanent role is 37.5 hours per week plus Saturday mornings as per the rota (at the moment 1 in 6). The main duties will be in theatre, with nurse clinics and there will be a small amount of reception work. As we are a mixed practice there would be an opportunity to work with horses and farm animals too.
