An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Registered Veterinary Nurse to join our team here at Raheny Veterinary Hospital!
At Raheny no two days will be the same, but some duties will include looking after inpatients and making sure the surgical patients are looked after throughout their stay and discharging them to the owner when they're going home. Along with this you will be on a mix of inpatient, surgery shifts and floating shifts with a mixture of medication dispensing and assisting with scans when needed.
Working week is flexible with some staff doing longer shifts over 4 days and then some doing regular 8-hour shifts over 5 days. Weekends are generally 1 in 6 and there's no OOH.
Salary for the role is up to €36,000 depending on experience.
Raheny Vets is a small animal hospital for first opinion and referral. We have lots of equipment including blood machines, laser, x-ray, orthopaedic suite and laparoscopy. We have a large close-knit team and we're located 10 minutes from Raheny dart station.
