Jessica Manning Adelaide, SA (posted 28th March) Veterinary Nurse or Traineeship

My name is Jessica Manning and I'm currently looking to find some part time work as a veterinary nurse so that I can finally start my Certificate IV in veterinary nursing course. I need to be doing at least 15hours work per week to do this course part time which is what I'm looking for. I currently work in a veterinary clinic in a rural area once a week for about 9 hours give or take. I could do the complete fifteen hours there but they don't have all the resources and technology needed to become a completely experienced veterinary nurse as they mainly focus on large animals. I'm hoping to find a clinic that will just give me these few hours or more once a week so I can finally get started.

I'm a quick learner and believe in getting all tasks done ahead of time if not on time. I have a history of animal handling having worked at Rd. Lindsay Young's vet in Mount Torrens for the past three years and a history of attention to detail and great organisation skills having run my own cleaning business on the other days.

I possess a certificate II in Animal Studies and am available to start just as a trial if need be.

Please email me if you would like to see a copy of my resume outlining my experiences and history in animal handling and care.
