I am seeking casual, part time or full time employment however if the opportunity arose to complete Locum work I will oblige.  I have recently relocated to the Riverina area (Temora) therefore I am seeking an opportunity close by.  I am very passionate about animals and believe that I would be an asset to the veterinary clinic. I am also willing to learn new skills and perfect current skills. I take pride in my work and present in it a fun and responsible manner.  If you require anymore information please feel free to contact me. I look forward to hearing from you.

Danielle Hunter, Ipswich/Brisbane QLD (posted 9th April) Trainee Veterinary Nurse

Hello, my name is Danielle Hunter, I am a training veterinary nurse seeking a full time nursing position. I am currently studying the veterinary pathways course through Open Colleges which consists of Certificate II in Animal Studies (currently in the last part) and then moving onto Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing.

I have experience with livestock (cattle, sheep, pigs), as I have grown up on properties. I also have been completing practical work placement at a clinic and have loved every minute of it. I am wanting to gain experience, new challenges, meet new people with the same passion and continuously learn new things.

If you would like to get in contact or for more details, please send me an email and I am happy to send through my cover letter and resume.
