Hello, allow me to take this time to introduce myself. My name is Angela and I have always had a strong passion for animals as can be seen through out my previous voluntary work and previous employment.

I have extensive experience in working with animals. I have volunteered as a cattery attendant within Save-A-Dog Scheme in Glen Iris whereby my duties were including but not limited to;  laundry, cleaning catteries, preparing food, grooming. socialising/playing with the cats and also liasing with other staff members and members of the public. In my spare time I also undertake house/pet sitting assignments and take care of people's pets which I thoroughly enjoy. I have also been employed within the grooming industry for two and a half years and during that time I have gained a strong understanding of dealing with different dog breeds, providing excellent customer service and providing different grooming services.

Danielle Sisson, Yarraville & Surrounds, VIC (posted 16th December) Qualified & Experienced Vet Nurse

Hello, my name is Danielle Sisson and I'm am a Certificate IV qualified Veterinary Nurse (finished my qualification in 2013 through New England FlexiLink TAFE). I worked one day a week at a vet clinic in Brisbane for the two years I was studying part-time and externally to be a vet nurse (while also completing university qualifications). During that time, I was given the opportunity to be involved in a wide range of aspects from vet nursing, from the reception and cleaning duties to assisting and monitoring surgeries and performing a dental. I also worked at a vet clinic in Melbourne for a month at the start of this year before I returned to an internship in South Africa, working with African buffalo. My internship allowed me to develop more handling skills for bigger animals than what I had access to in the Brisbane and Melbourne clinics.

I'm currently enrolled full-time in a research Masters at the University of Melbourne. I have, however, discussed with my supervisors the possibility of also doing some vet  nursing work, and they are happy for me to do that. I'm looking for about one shift a week at a vet clinic in Melbourne, preferably somewhere from the city to the western side, from the start of next year. I'll be living in Yarraville, but will be travelling to Werribee most days to do my university work. My hours are quite flexible. I would like to keep improving upon what I can do as a vet nurse, so would like an opportunity where I can learn and take on new skills.

If you have a shift a week or so that needs to be covered by a vet nurse, please do get in contact with me, and I can send you my resume or whatever else you require. My email address is, and my number is 0422 578 296.

Taegen Burnside, North Lakes/Brisbane, QLD (posted 14th December) Qualified & Experienced Vet Nurse

I am a veterinary nurse with nearly 7 years experience working in small animal hospitals, and I completed my Certificate IV in 2011. 

My last role was as a surgical nurse at a large animal shelter where tasks ranged from all aspects of surgical nursing, pathology, in-patient care and weekend reception. 

I am an efficient worker, who is used to a fast paced environment. I am a great team member but also work effectively on my own and have experience working sole charge.

I am located in North Lakes, after recently relocating from Melbourne, and am looking for part time or casual or locum work of between 15-25 hours per week, to start immediately.

I am happy to send a resume and references upon request, so please don’t hesitate to contact me :)

Claire, Perth, WA (posted 7th December) Entry Level Vet Nurse

My name is Claire and I'm from Perth. I'm a recent graduate from Charles Sturt University where I have been awarded a Bachelor of Equine Science. I am currently also studying towards my Cert IV in Vet Nursing and another degree in Veterinary Technology.

I have some work experience with animals, mainly with horses, but also some small animal that I have been exposed to during work placements.

I'm a mature aged student and have decided to pursue these studies to follow my passion. My original career path has been in accounts and administration, so I have a strong customer service background and am qualified and experienced in bookkeeping and reception duties.

I would preferably like something SOR and part-time, but am flexible.

If I sound like the person that is right for your company, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Thank you for your time
