One of our long-standing clients is looking for a Head Nurse doing maternity cover to start in February 2024.

This role is 8am – 4.30pm 5 days a week, Monday to Friday, with no out of hours.

They are a busy first opinion practice with lots of variety, they cover night duties for in patients, but vets now take their phone calls after 9pm weekdays and 5pm weekends which gives the best of both worlds as the nurses still get to experience night duties but are able to concentrate on inpatients only overnight.

They are a training practice and would certainly have a clinical coach position for them to either continue this role if they felt they had enough time in the role.

The general nurse rota includes the following shifts and include one hour for lunch unless otherwise specified but in the head nurse role they would only be put on a shift as the last nurse.


  • Dispense – 8.15am to 6pm (1.5 hours lunch)
  • Theatre – 8am to 5pm
  • 2nd Ops – 8am to 5.15pm
  • Kennels – 9.30am to 6.30pm
  • Recovery – 8am to 5pm
  • Night Duty – 4pm to 10am
  • Weekend – 8am to 8am (24hour shift)

Interested? Give me a call or an email 01291 645 871 / mwilkins@glvets.com
