WAVES, Success, Perth WA (posted 13th January) FT Surgical Veterinary Nurse


A rare opportunity awaits.

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 in the past year undergone major expansions so we currently need a Full Time Surgical Veterinary Nurse to join our Surgery Department 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 whilst 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 We are looking forward to hearing from you.

Veterinary Nurse - Full Time 

Tell me about Sage vets...

Our company is committed to excellent relationships with our clients, as well as leading work practices for employees. We provide an environment of work-life balance, challenge and growth, in turn providing advancement opportunities for our people.

We understand that vet nursing is more than cleaning and reception duties. Helping customers in a way that makes a difference for them and their beloved pets takes a team effort - and is key to our approach.

Tell me about the role…

A full time opportunity has now arisen for a qualified veterinary nurse. Whilst nursing experience will be advantageous, we are open to offering the job to a new graduate nurse, for the right person.

We are looking for enthusiasm – and someone who genuinely enjoys communicating with clients and working in a busy environment. You will bring a professional attitude and be positive, open-minded and highly organised.

The role may involve some movement between clinics, but they are all in close proximity to each other. This is a genuine opportunity to further your career in a friendly, well-resourced company that is not limited in size, but is also not a soulless ‘corporate’ environment.??

If you like the sound of what we have to offer, we can't wait to hear from you!
