RCVS to Host Free Evening Event About Flexible Working for RVNs
The event, to be held on the evening of 3rd May at Dovecote Veterinary Hospital in Castle Donington in Leicestershire, is open to all veterinary nurses and employers who are considering, or already have, a flexible approach to working arrangements. It includes a supper starting at 18:15, with the event itself kicking off at 19:00 with a series of talks. Following the talks there will be a panel discussion involving the speakers and members of the VN Futures Action Group and the opportunity to ask questions.
Julie Dugmore, RCVS Director of Veterinary Nursing, commented: “A flexible approach to work schedules provides massive benefits to the practice as well as to the veterinary nurse. Veterinary nursing retention is an ongoing struggle in the profession, and being open to more non-traditional working patterns that can better work around family and other non-work commitments will hopefully mean fewer people leaving the profession and can help employers create a confident, cohesive veterinary nursing team.”
