Gungahlin Veterinary Hospital, & Gungahlin Cat Hospital, Gungahlin ACT (posted 7th July) Part-time Veterinary Nurse

About us:

Gungahlin Veterinary Services, comprising of Gungahlin Veterinary Hospital and the co-located Gungahlin Cat Hospital, is looking for a part-time veterinary nurse to join our passionate team of highly skilled veterinarians, caring veterinary nurses, dedicated receptionists and support staff. We are one of the premier veterinary practices in the ACT, working from a purpose-built hospital equipped with a full complement of equipment for diagnosis and surgery of most small animal problems. We are also an ASAV Accredited Hospital of Excellence and an ISFM Gold Cat Friendly Clinic. Check out our website at to find out more about who we are and what we do.

About the role:

The role will work across Gungahlin Veterinary Hospital and Gungahlin Cat Hospital, and exposure to a variety of different cases and responsibilities is guaranteed. All the cool stuff like oesophageal foreign bodies, surgeries and complicated procedures will be a normal day at the office, as well as dental work and general nursing. This position has become available due to an increasing workload – we’ve decided it’s time to welcome another member to our team. Our nurses operate at a high level and are given the chance to develop their nursing skills and their careers – this is not your everyday nursing role!

This is a permanent part-time role. Working hours are rostered between the hours of 7:30 to 19:30 Mondays – Fridays and 8:00 to 16:30 on Saturdays. It is a requirement to be available to work Saturdays on rotation with other nurses (i.e. not every Saturday – on average, our nurses work one Saturday per month). The working hours can be up to 38 hours per week, but may be less depending on demand. There is no after hours, Sunday or public holiday work required as we are lucky enough to have a separate emergency service operating from our premises. Working hours can be discussed in further detail with interested candidates.
