Vet Nurse

We are on the hunt for a part-time or full-time experienced GP nurse. No Sundays or after hours, though Saturdays will be routine.

About Us
The Floreat Vet is a long-established small animal clinic, which changed ownership mid 2018. We have the best of both worlds: a lovely clientele who adore their animals and genuinely appreciate the gold standard of care we provide, but with a fresh, dynamic approach to what that means.

We are growing our small team of three vets and three nurses. We love our shiny new clinic, we love our easy going and trusting clients, and we adore our patients. We are active in sharing knowledge, and have a focus on continuous improvement in skills and practices. The clinic also includes grooming, and puppy classes, run by a certified trainer.

We have a superb, brand new fit-out which includes all the toys – Digital Radiography, Dental Xrays, Vet-Tome, BM5 patient monitoring, a fully equipped theatre, and a full Idexx in-house lab suite.

We are looking for an experienced Veterinary Nurse to join our team at The Floreat Vet. You will have the opportunity to join a team that works hard to be the best at what we do, but also likes to have a laugh together.

We have a varied caseload, and with vets that have completed extra studies in small animal medicine, orthopaedic surgery, soft tissue surgery, ophthalmology and acupuncture, we are able to thoroughly work up every case that walks through our door.
