Collaroy Plateau Veterinary Clinic, Sydney's Northern Beaches (posted 20th March) Part Time Vet Nurse

Part Time Veterinary Nurse

Butternut is looking for a new hoomun to boss around!

Butternut is the resident thug (i.e. a sassy and feisty tortoiseshell cat) at Collaroy Plateau Veterinary Hospital with an Instagram following larger than most adults on the Northern Beaches. If she wasn't a cat, she'd already have one of those coveted blue ticks! Her home is down a driveway in a small group of shops where you'll often see her trying to 'play' in the waiting room with the patients or sitting on the window sill silently judging the hoomuns working around her. Caroline and Lewis took over the hospital five years ago but we all know that Butternut is the boss; just look at all the food bags she's bitten through!

With her plan of world domination slowly in the works (ever so slowly), Butternut is looking for another companion to help her keep the creatures in line and attend to her day-to-day needs.

Apart from the demanding furball, at our small animal hospital on the sunny Northern Beaches you will find:

We are big believers in work life balance so all nurses have a monthly share in the Saturday roster; we are closed Sundays and public holidays. We are fortunate enough to have an emergency veterinary centre nearby which we use for after-hours.

Career satisfaction is part of our core values, as is constantly learning new skills, so we support our staff in continuing education and encourage our veterinary nurses to be as hands-on as possible and to develop their areas of passion.

If we’ve piqued your interest we'd love to hear from you, and I'm sure Butternut will approve if you already follow her on and .

Townsend Veterinary Clinic, Albury (posted 3rd March) Full or Part Time

Townsend Veterinary Clinic logo

Townsend Veterinary Clinic is a new, purpose-built small animal practice based in the beautiful regional centre of Albury, on the border of New South Wales and Victoria.

The practice directors, Shelley and Kim, had a vision for a welcoming, friendly practice that is involved with the local community. We wanted pets and owners to feel comfortable at the clinic, and we wanted the clients to feel well-informed and involved with their pets' treatment. Our little dream has become a reality and we have been warmly embraced by the community, and have been able to practice gold-standard care with the full-support of our fantastic clients.

We are heavily involved with the local community and regularly host community events. Some of the events we have organised so far include dog yoga, twilight cinema, pet photography sessions, information evenings, as well as regular attendance at local markets. We perform significant amounts of rescue and charity work, and we are very proud of our achievements so far since opening our doors in December 2017.

The clinic is well-equipped and spacious, with brand-new advanced equipment including: digital radiography including dental radiography (standard for all dental procedures); ultrasound; advanced anaesthesia monitoring including blood pressure, ECG, and end-tidal carbon dioxide monitoring; Tonopen for intraocular pressure measurement; in-house lab with biochemistry, PT/APTT, blood gases and electrolytes; separate sterile surgical theatre with suction, cautery and Bair huggers. IV fluids are standard with all procedures. We also just finished work on a brand new cat hospital/surgery ward upstairs which we are very proud of.

We are a small, close-knit and social team. Dr. Shelley and Nurse Kim have a background in emergency and critical care and are very happy to provide learning and support to all staff.

Our clinic has a large focus on learning and as such we will always support our staff through any further education they wish to do. Our nurses all have their own areas of interest and this has lead to further training in physiotherapy, dental radiology and anaesthesia. Our nursing team is very efficient, with set roles on each day. We hold our nurses in very high regard due to their experience, and as such most admissions and discharges are done by our nurses as well as dental consults, post-dental and post-desexing check ups.

We are after a part-time to full-time Veterinary Nurse and we are flexible with the roster. We currently have 3 other nurses with a rotating weekend roster, however the clinic is only open 9-1 Saturdays and closed Sundays so weekend work is minimal. We are looking for a vet nurse with experience, fits in well with our team and has a passion for veterinary nursing. We are after a nurse that has the ability to be pro-active around the clinic and work together as a team to provide gold-standard care for our clients and patients.

What about the location? The border North East region is absolutely stunning. The clinic is walking distance to the beautiful Murray River and in summer we all enjoy a float down the river, or a game of beach-volleyball at the courts down the road. There are fantastic restaurants, cafes and wineries. We are close to the snow, as well as the beautiful towns of Beechworth, Rutherglen and Bright.

More information about us can be found on our website www.townsendvets.com.au or on our Facebook page.

If you would like to apply for this position, please email a cover letter and CV to our practice manager Tom to reception@townsendvets.com.au or call (02) 6046 9846.
