The Berwick Village Vet is looking for an experienced nurse. We will consider full-time or part-time for the right applicant.

So who are we? We are a small two vet practice in Berwick. At present we have 6 nurses in various roles, and we have a great mix of personalities. We love our little clinic! If you are after a big corporate style job this job is not for you!

What do we want? An experienced nurse to work into the team. Along with every other vet clinic in the country, we are now busier than before and we need another nurse to help out. We really pride ourselves on trying to work with our clients, and we have great clients.

We need a nurse who really enjoys the Customer service side. Customer service is harder than ever with a busier practice, limited numbers of people inside the building, and the hassles of a pandemic. We also need an organizer. Someone who can work autonomously and doesn’t need to be given a list each day. We alternate rosters so you’ll be in with the furries on surgery day as well. You need to get the Vet moving, get the job done, and really look after the little patients who are sometimes really not enjoying their day! So care and attention to detail for managing the pets pre- and post- op is important, as is confidence in the surgery itself.

Marketing skills, including newsletter and social media are an advantage. If you’ve applied for other jobs here please advise when, in your email.

So how do you apply? Call the clinic on 9707 3855, or fire off an email with CV and cover letter to jeremy@berwickvillagevet.com.au
