My name is Jessica Van Der Peet and I am from Officer. Im currently enrolled to start my cert II in animal studies at Box Hill and from there go onto complete my cert IV in veterinary nursing. In order to complete my certificate IV I do need to have a vet clinic to take me on board for at least 15 hours a week, or even better, a traineeship! Preferably in the south east area of Melbourne. I’m available as soon as possible! 

There is nothing more I want than to be able to get my dream job. As the saying goes “if you do what you love you will never work a day in your life.” I have grown up around and also owned animals such as dogs, rabbits, horses, cows and even a goat! I currently have a Rottweiler so no dog is too big or too small! I also do dog walking and dog sitting. 

I am a fun, bubbly and trustworthy with a warm, sweet and caring nature which seems to make animals respond to me in a positive way. 

Cleaning up after an animal is no bother for me at all. I know this job position isn’t all cuddles and fun with the animals, I am aware and understand that it is still a job, some things may be confronting and dirty/messy. 

Please don’t hesitate to contact me on 0450307010 or via email-

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

I am seeking locum work in Melbourne, Victoria from the end of December 2019, for approximately 3 months, however I can be flexible. I will be arriving in Melbourne on 24th December.

In my 3 years of being qualified I have worked in first opinion and referral hospitals including the Royal Veterinary College’s Queen Mother Hospital and the Beaumont Sainsbury Exotic referral service. My main interests are feline medicine, consulting, and managing surgical patients which I am keen to develop further.

Working as part of a veterinary team is something I really enjoy, however I am also comfortable working alone and using my initiative. I am competent in radiography, placing IVs, taking blood, bandages and monitoring critical patients.

I like to think I’m pretty outgoing and am open to trying new things - I look forward to seeing what differences and challenges come with working in Australia!

Please drop me an email if you’d like to see my CV or discuss further.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.
