Tanya, Adelaide, SA (posted 6th September) Trainee Vet Nurse/ Receptionist

Hi, my name is Tanya, I am seeking a vet nursing and or receptionist position within Northern suburbs of Adelaide SA. I'm currently located near the Angle Vale area.

I have 3 years’ experience working as a veterinary nurse in a small animal clinic. I left for a change of scenery working at Petstock for 5 years afterwards. I am looking to get back into nursing and finish my cert 4. Although I'm not qualified, I can do everything that a qualified nurse can do, albeit I might be a little rusty getting back into the swing of things. I also do not have long left in my TAFE studies as I should get RPL for most of it.

I am a pretty down to earth type of person and enjoy a good laugh. Animals have always been my passion.
At home I have 3 dogs, cat and 2 horses.
If you own a large animal clinic, please keep me in mind as I am a confident horse handler.

Look forward to hearing from you.
