Kat Marsh, Richmond & Surrounds, VIC (posted 9th October) Trainee Vet Nurse

My name’s Kat and I am currently studying for my Certificate III in Animal Studies with ACVN and I’m looking for a placement to help me complete the course.

I’ve managed to work through my theory during lockdown and have just 2 assessments left, which has given me great general knowledge of the subject, but I am now looking for the hands-on experience I need.

I have extensive experience in administration and customer service but am new to the animal world having made the career change at the beginning of the year. Whilst I currently have no direct experience working with animals, I have owned many myself and have a great understanding of the importance of the veterinary industry and the level of trust and responsibility that comes with any role within it. I have begun this journey on a new career path because I want to combine my passion for working with people with my desire to help animals.

I am due to move back to the UK early next year and so I am really hoping someone can give me a chance to complete my course and begin my career in vet nursing.

My availability is fully flexible regarding days of the week/time of shifts and I can get access to a car to travel regionally if needed.
