Bull Creek Veterinary Hospital, Melville, Perth WA (posted 17th August)

Sage Vets Logo

Experienced Veterinary Nurse - Full Time

We’re searching for an experienced nurse (2+ years experience) who is competent, compassionate and extremely proactive to join our team.

Who we are

Sage Vets is a locally-owned, locally-operated vet chain operating south of the river. Our story began in 2000 in a single clinic in Winthrop, and we’ve grown since then to offer our customers a choice of four clinic locations.

But despite our multiple locations, we’re far from a big corporate chain. We’re your local vet that’s just around the corner. Our goal is to ensure each of our patients receives the care they need from an expert who’s part of their local community.

About the role

A full time opportunity has now arisen for a qualified veterinary nurse, 2 years + experience preferred. The role is 40 hours per week. You’ll receive a very attractive remuneration package commensurate with your experience.

You’ll be supported by a close-knit team, working within clear policies and procedures. You will receive opportunities for ongoing development and training to ensure you never stop learning.

At Sage Vets we believe in a healthy work-life balance. No long, tiring 10-hour+ days, or 50-hour weeks followed by 30-hour weeks. Because working crazy hours with no rest doesn’t benefit anyone, and actively works against our mission of providing the best patient care that we can. The frequency of weekend work ranges from 1-in-4 to 1-in-7. If you work the weekend, you get two additional days off to make up for it.

We’re ready for someone to join our team immediately.

Grantham Street Veterinary Clinic, Wembley, Perth WA (posted 11th August)

Grantham Street Vet Clinic Logo

Experienced Veterinary Nurse - Full Time

Despite having recruited two fantastic nurses recently, our increasingly busy practice and ongoing maternity leave means we are still looking for additional nursing hours.

This means we are looking for an experienced nurse for a set contract 12 month 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, 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.
