Bicester Vets Staff
RVN Vacancy

Are you looking for a friendly, diverse, and inclusive team who will support you to flourish as an RVN?

Bicester Vets is an independent, RCVS accredited, single site hospital with 24-hour nursing care. You’ll be able to use all your inpatient care skills and work in all departments on a regular, rotational basis.

With a large vet team of certificate holders and advanced practitioners most cases are treated in house, ensuring a varied and fulfilling nursing experience with case continuity.
