Maria Jaccard, Hobart (posted 28th November) Overseas Qualified Vet

Hi, my Name is Maria Jaccard. I am an overseas qualified vet with 8 years of experience working with small animals. As I still haven't pass the NVE, I can't work as a vet at the moment.
I will be relocating to Hobart in January 2019 and I am looking for a job as a vet nurse/ recepcionist/animal attendant.
During my time working as a veterinarian in Argentina, I was also required to perform a vet nurse role many times. Having to work in both very different but supplementary roles, gave me the opportunity to experience the highlights and downsides of each one of them. It has taught me the importance of team collaboration in such a special environment as is a vet clinic.

I've been living in Sydney for the past 2 years,where I worked for a high-end pet store and grooming salon chain. I started as a grooming assistant with very little responsibilities and I have progressed to currently be an assistant manager. During this time, I have enhanced my communication skills along with my organizational skills and develop new knowledge every day, especially in the customer service area.
I am confident and experience in many aspects of the routine activities such as assessing animals’ conditions and monitoring vitals, collecting lab samples, placing IV catheters, dental polish, cleaning wounds, assisting in surgical procedures and post op care. I can also perform reception and administrative duties and customer service up to the highest  standards.
I have an advance level of English Language and I just received a positive skills assessment as an Animal Attendant. I am sociable, friendly and I am good at multi-tasking and follow instructions. I am honest, calm, caring and very competent at anything I do. I am always looking to gain new skills and knowledge and become a better professional and person.

If you think I can be a positive addition to your practice or would like to know more about me, please don't hesitate on contact me.

I am a student and looking for a veterinary placement to begin my studies, Certificate IV Veterinary Nursing. I've completed my Certificate II in Animal Studies and I loved every day of it.

I have experience in wildlife caring, I have worked with possum rescue, rehabilitation and release, supporting my mother who has been a carer with WIRES for many years. This includes helping her with critically wounded small mammals.

In High School, my chosen field for work experience was at the Taronga Zoo in the reptile section and I loved it so much that I spent a full year volunteering.

Growing up, I have been surrounded by animals at home – common domestic animals such as dogs, cats and rabbits but also less common such a ferrets. Since childhood, I have been responsible for the care of many of our pets, and this had forged my love and care for animals. Being passionate about all animals has always been one of my traits and would love to have a career in the veterinary field.

I'm more than happy to start from the bottom doing all of the dirty work and clean cages all day, if it means it's a step forward to becoming a vet.

Lucy Varga, Australia-wide (posted 19th October) Experienced & Qualified Vet Nurse

Hi there, my name is Lucy Varga and I have been working as a veterinary nurse for over seven years. I qualified with a Certificate IV in Sydney, and have worked in London UK and Byron Bay on the north coast of NSW. I am an Australian and a British citizen. 

I have also taken part in volunteering projects at The Blue Cross Animal Shelter in the UK, providing nursing skills to rescued elephants at Elephant Nature Park in northern Thailand, looking after horses in Spain, and working at a canine sterilisation clinic in Leh, northern India. I hope to take part in some more volunteering over the next couple of years if the right opportunity were to come up.  

I'd be happy to work in a more part time or locum position. And I am keen to nurse anywhere around the world! 

When working in clinics, I have an interest in surgical nursing and anaesthetics, and have skills in IV catheter placement, taking blood samples and running in-house bloods. 

My other learnt skills include:

Bradie, North-West Melbourne, VIC (posted 16th October) Part Time Experienced Vet Nurse

Hello! My name is Bradie. I am looking for part-time (or 3-4 days a week) employment in the North-Western side of Melbourne.

I am an experienced Veterinary Nurse of 6 years. I have taken a 2 year break to care for my child. This has enhanced my abilities in teamwork, determination and organization. I am now settled and ready to get back into the workforce! Being a Veterinary Nurse is something that I am very passionate about. I work great as a team, and efficient on my own. I very much enjoy being involved in the general running of the practice, conversing with clients as well as educating them on what is best for their pets, to routine surgery, orthopaedic surgery & assisting in long term recovery. I always maintain a high level of patient care. I am able to place IV catheters, induce patients, place ET tubes, collect blood samples & assist in major surgeries – just to name a few things. I take great pride in representing my workplace with a friendly and professional demeanor at all times.

Please feel free to contact me via email, where I can forward on my resume.

Thank you for your time. I very much look forward to hearing from you.
