Experienced RVN Opportunities – Hospital, ECC, and First Opinion Branch
Valley Vets are looking for exceptional RVNs to join our amazing family.
We have exciting opportunities to join our rapidly expanding team, which include:
- Hospital RVNs – weekday
- ECC RVNs – weekend days (lead positions available)
The roles can be flexible – including both hospital and branch work, or a mix of weekday and weekends. We truly can work with you to find your ideal combination of clinical work and rota pattern.
Valley Vets is lucky to be situated in an extremely diverse area. South Wales and, in particular, Cardiff and its surroundings, really are something very special. Within easy commuting distance of all of our practices, you can be living in the vibrant city centre of Cardiff, surround yourself with nature and tranquillity in the coastal towns of the Vale of Glamorgan, or the mountains of the Valleys and Brecon Beacons National Park.
Sports facilities are extensive and broad-ranging: from the International Sports Village in Cardiff to UK-renowned mountain bike trails in Merthyr Tydfil and Cwmbran, beautiful walks on the Welsh Coastal Path or mountain and waterfall walks in the Brecon Beacons National Park. There really is something for everyone!
We aim to tailor people’s working patterns to suit their needs and allow them to strike a healthy balance between work and home life. Whether it’s working weekdays with no weekend or OOH commitments, through to purely ECC work, or even a mixture of the two: we can find a combination to suit most people!
Our 4 branch practices are fully equipped with all the modern kit you would expect! They are fully self-sufficient practices that have the back-up and support of the hospital site when needed. Standard branch facilities include digital x-ray and dental x-ray, blood analysers, ultrasound, and access to shared radiosurgery units.
The hospital site boasts a CT scanner, advanced ultrasonography equipment, endo-surgery facilities, extensive blood analysis equipment, dedicated orthopaedic, soft tissue, and exotic theatres, as well as a dedicated dental suite.
We also proudly host pet blood bank sessions to provide much needed support to our veterinary community, which has so far received outstanding feedback.
Valley Vets culture is one that values not only our patients and clients, but our team as well. We truly believe that by looking after our teams, the highest levels of patient and client care will naturally follow. We strive to provide an environment that encourages people to achieve their full potential, embark on further study, if desired, and progress in their chosen career pathways. We have numerous projects aimed at supporting team wellbeing, and have the team actively involved in how the practice can progress.
