Lisa Peck
Current Cert IV In Vet Nursing Student
Looking for a Trainee Nursing Role or Volunteer Work Placement Position
Lisa.peck93@hotmail.com
0416 651 787
Location: Anywhere around Melbourne

I am hoping to find a Trainee Nursing Role or a clinic who will allow me to do volunteer work placement, one or two days a week.

I am a professional who has a background in sales and administration but I discovered whilst spending the last year travelling, that my passion in life has always been to work within the animal industry. I am currently studying my Cert IV in Veterinary Nursing online with Open Colleges. I am located in Cranbourne at the moment, but am willing to travel daily (I have my own vehicle), or move closer for the right position.  

A key element of the nationally recognised ACM40212 Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing is the development of skills in a workplace environment. To achieve this, I am required to undertake a compulsory minimum 480 hours Work Placement as part of my course.

My background in Reservations, Sales and Administration, particularly in the Tourism industry, means I have exceptional customer service, attention to detail and communication skills that I feel are a valuable part of this role. I am currently volunteer one afternoon a week at the Save-a-dog Scheme Rescue Centre in Glen Iris, which is providing me valuable experience within the industry and have volunteered in an Animal Rescue Centre in Costa Rica.  
   
Open Colleges also has Student Personal Accident (Work Placement) Insurance which would cover me for the work placement position.

As I am new to this industry, I understand that I have limited experience, but I am passionate about working with animals and hope that you will give me an opportunity to enhance my skills in this important area. I am extremely excited to finally be working towards a career I am truly passionate about.

I recently completed my

I have wanted to work with animals for as long as I can remember.  I have been surrounded by them all my life and really want an opportunity to work with them. I have been a loyal volunteer at David Fleay’s Wildlife Park for many years as well as previously working at Currumbin Wildlife Hospital, Animal Welfare League and currently with the RSPCA as an Animal Ambulance Driver and Volunteer in their Hospital. 
Throughout my search for paid employment I have used my time to continue to broaden my experience and maintain my skills but I really need a practice that is willing to take the time to help me develop clinical skills which can only be done in a veterinary practice.  Sadly, most vacancies require years of paid clinical experience and this is proving difficult.  I can assure any practice willing to invest their time that I would be a valuable, reliable and loyal employee. 
While I live on the Gold Coast I am happy to travel or relocate. If any practices have a vacancy and are able to consider taking on someone with this background I would be very happy to meet with them or provide further information.
