Veterinary Care Assistant
We are looking for a hard working, enthusiastic person to help with the day to day care of our in-patients within our state-of-the-art veterinary hospital in Solihull. Reporting directly to the Assistant Nurse Manager - Non Surgical, you will work alongside a dedicated team of veterinary care assistants as well as qualified veterinary nurses within our surgical suite and theatres. This position involves shift work, weekend work and you will be required to participate in a one in twelve nightshift rota, so living locally could be an advantage. As well as feeding, cleaning and exercising in-patients, you will be involved in the daily cleaning of the premises to maintain our high standards of hygiene.
This is a demanding but rewarding role and would ideally suit candidates with an 'animal-care' diploma or 'animal nursing auxiliary' qualification. However, applicants with no formal training, but relevant experience, will also be considered.
In return we offer a superbly equipped, happy working environment, a competitive salary, dependent upon experience and qualifications, a company pension scheme, free uniform and parking as well as ample opportunities for a structured career progression within one of the top veterinary practices in the country.
