Algester Veterinary Surgery, Southern Brisbane, QLD (posted 26th February) Full or Part Time Senior Vet Nurse/Practice Manager

Southside Brisbane - EXPERIENCED SENIOR NURSES /PRACTICE MANAGERS

Sadly, our much loved senior nurse/practice manager has decided to pursue a different pathway after 8 years on deck! Here are some things she has said about the clinic...
'Wonderful team-mates, Life-long friends are made here!"
'Lovely clients and a good variety of case-load."

We are a...
Privately owned 2 (amazing) vet and 4 (rockstar) nurse team, that is at the top of our game in Client Care and Patient Advocacy... and climbing! We thrive on positivity, trust, respect and of course, oodles of empathy. With a strong focus on personal and clinical development, what we don't know, we are willing to learn, try and fail, until we master it.

Although we are part of a small group of clinics, we run independently and autonomously, while enjoying the benefits on leaning on the wider team if we need extra help or supplies in a hurry.

We are into team socials and we love to celebrate together. In fact we are off to Moreton Island in a few weeks time... if you hurry maybe you can join us!

You need to be...

  1. Ability to empower pet owners to do the best things for their pets by communicating the Value and Expertise that you offer
  2. Nursing prowess that takes full charge of patient care, supporting the our Superstar Vets and the other Legendary nurses on your team.
  3. Autonomy that you show by setting your own tasks, completing them and being open to feedback.

In short... You know your ability and are not afraid to show it. You also know your limitations and are not afraid to ask for help and do what it takes to grow!

In the interest of saving both of us a lot of time... Please don't reach out if you....

  1. Want to be micromanaged, spoon-fed or wrapped in cotton wool.
  2. Love animals but despise people.
  3. Don't believe in personal growth and development.
  4. Aren't a team player.
  5. Lack organisational skills and attention to detail

But... if you are currently working somewhere that fosters that sort of culture and you know it's time for you to move on 'cos you just don't fit in.... then we want to hear from you.

Hours P/T or full time, let's talk about what you want!

Stalk us on Facebook @AlgesterVetSurgery if you want, then call/SMS 0410977161 or email vetbiz@rocketmail.com.

Please hurry! We are interviewing applicants now... and that Moreton Island trip is fast approaching!
