Leapfrog Recruitment are pleased to bring you a  Veterinary Nursing job vacancy advert with a nice difference…written by our client, please see the vacancy details below 

Awesome full time RVN or 2nd/ final year Student Veterinary Nurse required, Bridgend, South Wales. Salary £24,000-34,600 DOE.
Calling all RVN’s. Are you fed up with scrolling through masses of job adverts out there that seem to have used the exact same, boring old template for making a job advert? Are you wanting to develop your skills, work to your full potential and perform schedule 3 tasks in a safe and supportive environment? If so, then please read on.
I am the head nurse at Maes Glas Vets in beautiful South Wales (yes, I may be a little biased with me being Welsh!). This morning I have been looking through job adverts out there in the hope of gaining some motivation only to feel that they all seem to follow the same standard template. The adverts themselves look to have been written by a robot! I have written this advert to include all the details that I would want to know when applying for a job, using my knowledge of being at Maes Glas for over 13 years.
The Team
We are a diverse, social, and enthusiastic team of nurses, Vets, and support colleagues (including the practice cat Basil). We have surfers, hikers, tarot card readers, rugby players, house plant enthusiasts, and dungeon and dragon’s players to name but a few. We even have a few dancers who, bless them, tried very hard to teach the likes of myself and other colleagues the Jerusalema dance which we carried out to mark the first anniversary of the covid pandemic (check it out on Facebook if you fancy a laugh or want to put a smile on your face).
Many of us come from different walks of life, but it is this diversity that makes working at Maes Glas such a pleasure.
Our team is made up of 24 RVN’s and a team of SVN’s and ACA’s. We all have different areas of interest, and at Maes Glas we encourage our RVN’s to do as much as possible, and you will be heavily involved in a huge variety of medical and surgical cases.
The Practice and Ethos
Alongside our main hospital in Bridgend, we have five branches across South Wales. We remain committed to excellent clinical care and extremely high standards, with a silver level cat friendly status from the ISFM and five separate “outstanding” RCVS awards.
Bridgend is a large town nestled between the bright lights of Cardiff to the east and Swansea to the West, the rugged Brecon Beacons to the North and the award-winning beaches to the South. This area offers an abundance for you to do in your downtime away from work.
We at Maes Glas pride ourselves on being a friendly and supportive team of incredible people, working out of a purpose-built hospital with all the mod-cons, for a company that imposes no commercial targets on any of our colleagues.
All that we ask of our team is that they come to work and leave each day knowing that they have done their absolute best.
