Hamilton Specialist Referrals (HSR) is a state-of-the-art, independent specialist veterinary referral hospital based near the Oxfordshire/Buckinghamshire border. Originally orthopaedic- and neurology-based, we now also offer services in soft tissue surgery, internal medicine, radiology and cardiology. All specialists are either European boarded or board-eligible, and all services are supported by two European boarded anaesthetists. We have an ECVN recognised residency programme in place and are in the process of gaining approval for an ECVS training programme. HSR offers the most cutting-edge investigations and treatments, with both a 1.5 Tesla MRI and a CT-scanner on site; and all disciplines work closely with the in-house professional physiotherapy department.

HSR is a growing hospital and currently employs over 80 team members, including veterinary surgeons, RVNs, physiotherapists, hydrotherapists, nurse auxiliaries, client care, clinical administrators and operational support staff. As part of our structured growth plan we are now seeking an experienced RVN to join our friendly and supportive team.

Excellent communication and interpersonal skills and the ability to multi-task with a flexible approach to working are a must.

  • Competitive salary, commensurate with experience
  • Unlimited career development opportunities, due to our dynamic team structure which is focused on areas of expertise
