Full-Time Maternity Cover Branch Deputy Nurse Manager – Penbode Vets – Camelford, Cornwall

Do you want to join a great team of vets, RVNs, SVNs, ANAs, and receptionists on the North Cornwall border? If so, then we have just the role for you!

About the Job

We are looking for a senior nurse to lead our team of nurses at our Camelford branch.

You will be required to undertake general nursing duties including inpatient care, anaesthesia, and nurse clinics, as well as working with the Nurse Manager to provide support and leadership to our nursing team. Working alongside the team, you will be responsible for keeping morale high and ensuring excellent client and patient care.

The position requires you to have a well-motivated and organised approach with good communication skills. You will need to be proactive in providing leadership and training to ensure good performance and efficiency in all aspects of the nursing team.

About You

You’ll be a qualified RVN on the RCVS register, and will ideally have leadership experience and preferably be a Clinical Supervisor, but this is not essential.

This role requires excellent communication skills, self-motivation, a willingness to share skills and knowledge, and the ability to work well within a team. You will be able to lead by example by providing excellent client service, whilst demonstrating a high standard of nursing care.

About Us

We are in one of the most beautiful parts of the UK with stunning beaches, moors, and countryside for you to explore. We have four dedicated small animal branches located in Camelford, Stratton, Holsworthy, and Bradworthy, along with separate farm and equine facilities. Our main surgery is centrally based in Stratton (near Bude) providing 24-hour nursing care.

All our PETS branches are RCVS General Practice Standard, and our Stratton surgery is RWAF Gold Standard.
