WANTED: Vet Nurse, Experienced, Part Time, 6 month role

Looking for a change? Looking for a team which puts patients, clients and our wonderful team at the centre of what they do? Well, you are in luck! Our team is looking for an experienced nurse to help us care for our lovely clients and patients.

We are a small animal Vet Hospital in Melbourne's eastern suburbs, and one of the oldest clinics in Melbourne (we began caring for local pets 93 years ago!). Although we are one of the oldest clinics, we are certainly not outdated in our patient care, having two enthusiastic practice owners who ensure that we strive to provide optimum care and standards to our clients and patients.

Role summary:

We are a 3 vet small animal hospital, seeing mainly dogs and cats, but also occasional exotics and wildlife. We strive to provide optimum care and standards to the small animal patients and clientele that we service. We are proud of the care we offer, and have a large focus on wellness preventative care.

We are very team focussed, and you will need the ability to work well within the team so that we can deliver the best outcomes to our patients and clients. We have weekly Team Meeting and Training sessions, also working regularly with the Lincoln Institute, allowing us to optimise our patient care, client programs, better ourselves and improve our wonderful team. There are frequent cakes for team birthdays, anniversaries or other events.

We have high standards amongst everyone in the team and to assist you in this there are designated duty checklists and many hospital standards-of-care for patients and clients. Attention to detail in completing all designated tasks is expected. If you have pride in your personal standards and your quality of care, then you are just the sort of person we seek!

We are keen in the use of modern technology, allowing us to practice mostly paper-free. We also practice waste sorting to minimise our environmental footprint.

If you want to work in a team that truly values pet advocacy, engaging clients, and supporting fellow team members, then waste no time sending your cover letter and resume through!
