About Us

We’re a community of passionate veterinary professionals committed to providing truly exceptional care. We’re set on building something extraordinary: creating the most forward-thinking and innovative place in the veterinary industry. We’re always looking for people who aspire to stand out in their field, and it’s this vision and enthusiasm that forms the foundation of how we work.

Our mission to deliver progressive, around the clock care means our employees have the very best equipment and treatment options available, including in-house MRI machines and state-of-the-art operating theatres.

We provide ongoing support to our teams, both in practice and through our dedicated training centre. This empowers you to get the
very best from our advanced equipment while being on your journey to veterinary excellence.

The Role

We are seeking a Registered Veterinary Nurse to join our recently opened, new branch in St Johns Wood. This Medivet branch is part of a group of 8 branches run by the formerly independent Zasman Vet team.

The role will involve all aspects of nursing as well as leading the nursing team. It would suit a confident RVN who is ready to take the next step into a Head Nurse position or who has previous Head Nurse experience. Clinical coaching experience or at least enthusiasm to become a Clinical Coach is essential.

We are looking for someone who is keen to support and develop a very motivated and bright Student Nurse and is not afraid to get stuck in
with the duties and to lead by example.

You will be fully supported within your move and we will offer full management training with our dedicated in-house internal training team. You'll have a friendly and positive attitude and want to progress and expand your knowledge and skills further. Strong mentorship and support will be available to help you develop your career and get the most satisfaction from your job.

Skills and Experience

Ideally you will be two years qualified, although previous experience as a Head Nurse is not essential and confident Nurses with less experience may be considered. We are looking for someone with leadership qualities, approachability and a passion for getting the best out of people.

The Branch

Our St. Johns Wood practice is only 6 months old with a bright and spacious reception, consult, prep and theatre, state of the art equipment including digital x-ray machine and in-house surgery (including advanced soft tissue) and blood testing facilities, with results available in 20 minutes.

The practice has access to specialised services and our 24-hour hospital. You will be joining a team consisting of a Lead Vet, with an interest in pathology, and a Student Nurse, which will grow as the branch does!

The team provide an exceptional standard of patient and customer care to all pets and their owners, including exotics such as birds and reptiles, as well as cats and dogs. They want to become an integral part of the community of St John's Wood for many years to come. Regent's Park is a short walk away, as well as London Zoo and Lord's Cricket Ground.

For any newly qualified nurses seeking new roles, we also have an RVN vacancy in both our Hampstead Village and Crouch End practices. Please visit Medivet careers website for all other vacancies!
