Contract Type


About the role

Our roving Veterinary Nurse role involves working across different practices within the White Cross Vets group. The role will be for 37.5 hours per week, either over 5 days or 4 days depending on the needs of the practices. 

Saturdays would not be contracted but will be offered out where needed, for additional pay. Your rota is planned 1 month in advance by our Group CD, or SOS Manager. It is usual that you work for short pre-planned stints at one practice, rather than being called up daily to work at multiple sites. You may, for example be required to cover maternity periods so could be based in one place for longer.  

The Roving Nurse would be expected to cover the Yorkshire area (Middlesbrough, Bradford, Sheffield) and mileage will be paid, so applicants should be based in this area.

White Cross Vets were established in West Yorkshire in 1937 and have grown to a group of 22 practices. The group has maintained its warm family-like culture in all this time and has won repeated awards, including SPVS Well-being Award 2017 and 2018 and Sunday Times
Top 100 Company to Work For (6 years running!). We offer an excellent package with the opportunity to enjoy a superb work/life balance.
