Western Australian Veterinary Emergency and Specialty (WAVES) are an emergency, critical care and specialty veterinary hospital that opened in Success, WA in May 2013. The hospital has recently undergone major expansions, so we currently need a Full Time Surgical Veterinary Nurse to join our team!

Every day here is challenging, you never know what you are going to see next.

At WAVES you’ll get more responsibility and be able to influence what happens with the patients. You’ll learn so much and there is always more to learn. You get to do fun stuff like scrubbing into major surgical procedures, anaesthesia monitoring for surgery, x-rays and CT imaging, placing catheters and get to know all sorts of instrumentation.

You’ll be providing patients with the highest standards of care and feel confident that you are doing the best for people’s pets.

WAVES is committed to finding the right team to staff our hospital over the long term. We are looking for energetic, enthusiastic and dedicated nurses who understand that veterinary nursing isn’t a 9-5 job, are genuinely interested in surgical veterinary procedures and are willing to consistently provide quality patient care in a sometimes hectic environment. You need to have a Certificate IV in veterinary nursing or equivalent and must have at least 2 years of experience in general practice. Previous experience in a referral hospital would be a big advantage however your approach is the most important thing to us. You will get training, continuing education and workplace support if you have the right attitude, but only lack the experience.

Please only apply if you are flexible within your working hours and you have a real passion for surgery.  

Your work will include preparing patients for surgery including blood-taking, catheter placement, clip and prep of surgical site, anaesthetic monitoring or scrubbing in, care of patients’ whist in hospital and liaising with their owners, instrument cleaning and sterilization.

You must be able to work efficiently within our team environment supporting our surgeons and all our team members.

You’ll be working with surgeons as a team to help the patients through their procedures and facilitate the highest standard of patient care until they are discharged home.

You will need to encourage and support all staff in the team, especially junior or less experienced members whether they are nurses or vets. You will need to spot things that require doing and get on with them without being asked. To make sure the hospital keeps running smoothly, you will need to keep the hospital clean, walk dogs to let them stretch their legs and have a sniff, stock shelves, keep the laundry moving and cuddle patients as required. If you have time, you can have a coffee too.

In return for your hard work and dedication, WAVES will:

Surgical veterinary nursing isn’t for everyone. To take on this job you need emotional resilience, staying power, a belief that miracles are possible (they are), and a healthy dose of pragmatism. But the rewards can be amazing! You will love the team and get a real buzz from working with us.

We take recruitment very seriously because we know it is important to get the right people and it’s also important that you are going to like working with us. We want to build up a team of people who will stay for years, be part of the WAVES family, and grow with us.

So if you think that you may be the person we are looking for please email a cover letter and your CV attention to Cathy at wavets@bigpond.com.

We are looking forward to hearing from you.

Grantham Street Vet Clinic Logo

Experienced Veterinary Nurse Required

Looking for a sea-change, but can’t go overseas? Feel that you need to expand your experience, but cautious about leaving your position? Now is the perfect time to make the move you have been considering for some time….

We are looking for an experienced nurse to fill maternity leave cover and extended leave. The position will be for a set contract period, but there is a very good chance that there will be an ongoing position.

So, why would you leave a current job to go to a new position? The answer is simple - because we offer a great work environment and our staff love coming to work. Our practice is a privately owned, recently renovated, 3-4 vet practice with great facilities.

We put a lot of time into choosing the right employees and this has paid off by having loyal staff. Over 60% of our staff have been with us for over 4 years (with most of our nurses leaving to further their education, move interstate, or go into specialty veterinary nursing). In what is often a very difficult work environment, we work hard to ensure our staff enjoy coming to work.

We offer flexible work hours, in clinic learning support as well as personal support, we take time to have fun at work (do most clinics have an in-clinic Easter Egg hunt??), we share baked goods, organise outside social events and reward our staff with above award pay rates. Importantly, we listen to staff, their wishes, any concerns along with ideas on how to make ours a wonderful work environment. We have a dedicated practice manager (who isn’t the business owner or a senior nurse), whose underlying philosophy is “we spend too much time at work not to make it enjoyable”
.
What are we looking for? A qualified nurse with at least 2 years’ experience who has read the above and thought – YES! that’s the sort of practice I want to work in. We need some-one who enjoys other people, is prepared to share the workload across all the nursing duties, and has the compassion and empathy to offer top quality patient and client care.

If you are still reading this and would love to give it a go, then now is the time to back yourself and send your CV to: manager@petwellness.com.au

All applications will be treated in confidence.
