Edwina Sedgwick, Pilbara WA or Australia wide (posted 24th June) Qualified and Experienced Vet Nurse

Hi there, I am Cert IV qualified nurse who has been working in the Pilbara for the last two years.

I have been the sole nurse working in a close-knit team consisting of one Vet and one admin staff. We never have a dull moment due to the wide range case load, which includes orthopaedics and emergency cases.

Being the sole nurse, I am no stranger to being thrown in the deep end, thinking quick on my feet and getting the job done.

I have very strong interpersonal skills and hold high work ethic standard.

I am ready for the next adventure wherever that takes me. So yes I am definitely open to relocating interstate!

Please don’t hesitate to contact me,


Philip Vidins, Brisbane QLD (posted 21st June), QLD Qualified and Experienced Vet Tech

Philip is my name and I am a UQ qualified Vet Technician (2011).

I have worked in a variety of clinical settings including emergency (AES), specialty (VSS) and general practice (Manly Road Vet Hospital). I also have spent a lot of time in charity and shelter clinics volunteering around South East Asia. A career highlight for me would be working as a clinical facilitator for the Royal Veterinary College on their Vet Nursing honors degree in Hong Kong.

I have spent the past two years working for Idexx Laboratories as the Product Specialist for a veterinary patient management app called Smart Flow.

I am currently seeking clinic based work so that I am eligible to be a Registered Vet Tech under the new AVNAT registration scheme. I am happy to undertake short or long term roles in and around Brisbane.

I am a hardworking individual with a can do attitude.

My core values are:

Diligent- If I see something that needs doing, I will do it. Answering phones, giving bum baths, fold towels, making coffees. If it needs doing and I am able to do it, I will get it done!

Empathy- Towards animals in my charge and the people that own them.

Agile- The veterinary environment is fast paced and ever changing, I am able to adjust rapidly to work with these changes.

Team player- Together Everyone Achieves More!

Honesty- The best policy.

Feel free to contact me via email ( ) if you would like a copy of my resume or if you have a position you would like to discuss with me!

I look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards,
