Scott Dickeson, Sydney, NSW (posted 1st February) Trainee/Junior Vet Nurse or Animal Attendant

My name is Scott Dickeson, I finished my Certificate IV course in Vet Nursing in 2019, and have been looking for paid work in the industry to improve my skills. I have 2 years' worth of unpaid work in Forestville Vet Hospital from 2018-2019, working on a weekly basis as part of my placement for my course. I have also completed Certificates II and III in Animal Studies prior to attaining my Cert IV, and have a position as Volunteer at Taronga Zoo Sydney.

My skills in vet nursing extend to patient/anaesthesia monitoring, patient care, surgery preparation and ensuring safe recovery, as well as performing in-house testing and examinations; in addition, I'm very capable of cleaning and disinfecting anywhere that needs it. I have many years experience in cash handling and customer service, having been in several retail positions previously, and having to interact with dozens of people each day I volunteer at Taronga Zoo.

I'm a quick learner when I'm involved in anything that requires hands-on interaction; I'm very compassionate and empathetic towards others, as well as very calm and understanding whenever a difficult situation arises, such as a client that may be belligerent or 'pushy'. However, I can also be firm and directing when it's required of me, as I understand that being a vet nurse can be demanding some days. I also have access to a car, and am proficiently licensed to use it when I need to; failing that, I live closeby to public transport, so commuting is not a problem for me.

If these traits seem useful to your clinic, please feel free to contact me at my mobile number or email address provided below, and I'd be more than happy to provide my resume, or discuss further potential job vacancies. I eagerly await your response, and look forward to working alongside you.

Sincerest regards,
Scott Dickeson
