Many Thanks,

Virginia, Sunbury & surrounds, Victoria (posted 24th June) Part-time / Voluntary placement

Hi, my name is Virginia Bekker and I am interested in finding either Part-time employment or a voluntary clinic placement. I live in Sunbury, Victoria and wish to find something within a reasonable travelling distance.

I was previously a Veterinary Nurse for 7 years, which I left in October 2016, while studying Cert IV Veterinary Nursing. I have been out of the Veterinary industry for the last 6 years but have decided to go back and finish my Cert IV qualification and return to the job that I love most and miss.

I returned to mostly online study mid 2020, during Covid, through Melbourne Polytechnics Fairfield campus and I will finish my Cert IV qualification this year. I have already completed Cert II Animal Studies and Cert III Equine Nursing.

I am an experienced mature aged person, a team player and happy to roll up my sleeves and do whatever needs to be done within the clinic. I love to have a laugh but also know when it is appropriate or not. I don't have any issues with taking direction and I love to learn new skills.

My availability is negotiable, but I am only looking for part-time hours, with a possibility of extending them in the future. I can provide a Resume upon request.

Thank you for taking the time to read my advert. Please find below my contact details and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Best Regards,

Virginia Bekker
