Hamish Ellerm, Sunshine Coast Qld (posted 18th November) Trainee Vet Nurse

Hello, my name is Hamish. I am about to enrol in the Certificate III in Animal Studies with a view to continuing to Certificate IV in Vet Nursing.
I have to study online so the course requires that I gain 15 hours paid employment per week for the duration of the course (9 months) within a veterinary practice. I work part-time (Mon-Fri) so this would have to be undertaken around that, but I’m pretty flexible.

A bit about myself. I have a passion for animals and especially their welfare and the cruelty and neglect aspect. I have been involved with animals from a very early age. Born and raised in New Zealand, my uncle had a sheep farm and I was there every school holidays and as often as I could be. He also had goats, horses and other animals. I was raised with various cats and dogs during my early years, as we lived in the city. I have lived in Australia for 20 years now and have become a citizen.

I have had a few career changes over the years and have held management positions in most of them. I feel now that the time is right to follow my dream as my previous careers have not offered me the fulfillment I crave.
I would enjoy having the opportunity to talk with someone more about a position, and how I could use my skills to benefit your practice.

Please contact or 0490 897640
