Night Veterinary Nurse

Thank you for your interest in the Night Veterinary Nurse Job at Animal Trust, we are a veterinary Community Interest Company founded on the vision to provide all pets with access to good veterinary care. We believe having a pet is something that all people should be able to enjoy, but people earning the Real Living Wage struggle to afford veterinary care when their pet gets sick. For some owners, the only option is euthanasia, and we want to provide them with an alternative that they can cope with.  Our free consults and straightforward pricing enable our vets and nurses to break down the barriers that stand in the way of pets receiving the treatment they need. We’re one community and we are here for our patients, clients and each other

We are a Community Interest Company, which means we reinvest the majority of our profit into our team and our patients’ care. In 2022 we were also officially certified as a B-Corporation, because we balance profit with people and the planet.
