Mermaid Waters Veterinary Surgery, Gold Coast (posted 9th May) Full Time Veterinary Nurse Position

Mermaid Vet is a thriving small animal practice in the central Gold Coast area.  Our nurses and veterinarians take pride in our clinic.  They are the reason why we have a reputation for being one of the most highly respected vet clinics on the coast.  Just ask one of our clients about us at the dog park down the road.   We also have fantastic group dynamics that translate into a harmonious and supportive workplace environment.

As the practice is growing and a few of our nurses have become mums we need an additional nurse to fit into our full time nursing roster. We are looking for an experienced, preferably Cert IV, veterinary nurse who is confident with monitoring anaesthetics and is capable in emergency situations. This person should possess the ability to work autonomously as well as in a team.

Mermaid Vet is not a corporate practice and therefore we are able to pay above the award wage without the need for regular performance reviews.  This new position has a flexible start date if you are currently under contract and cannot start until the new year. The position will be 38 hours per week, with an RDO every week. There will be some Saturday work on a rotation basis. All after hours work is referred to Animal Emergency Services. 

If you are looking for the opportunity to secure long term employment with higher pay as well as a job to enjoy coming to every day, please forward your CV or resume to office@mermaidvet.com.au.

***** If you are a mum and/or returning to work and want to work 3 days a week instead of 4 this position may still be negotiable for you if you tick all other boxes with experience. Please don't hesitate to apply. *****
