Liana, Sydney, NSW (posted 22nd January) Entry Level Vet Nurse
I am currently doing my Cert IV in vet nursing and am undertaking my work placement at the Animal Referral Hospital in Homebush, who have taken me on as a paid employee on the weekends. My certificate will be complete next year, and I then hope to undertake a Diploma of Veterinary Nursing and study some overseas correspondence courses based on animal behaviour.
I live in Baulkham Hills, NSW but have transport and am happy to travel. I am looking for full time work.
I run my own registered charity, called Cat Lovers Rescue and I have always been a volunteer, rescuer and foster carer for various animal rescue and rehabilitation groups (WIRES included) I have been involved in TNR/H (Trap, Neuter, Release/Home) projects for cat colonies and have removed and domesticated several animals who were living in dangerous and abusive situations, funded their vet work and placed them into loving homes. I feed several cat colonies each day on my commute to and from work.
I run four Facebook groups, “Animal Foster Carer Network Australia” which is a network for rescues to find foster carers, and vice versa. “Sydney & Surrounds- Lost, Found and Injured Animals” along with “Hills District- Lost, Found and Injured Animals” which assists the community in finding lost animals and assisting injured animals. I also run the “Open Colleges Cert IV Veterinary Nursing” group to assist students in their studies.

Kate Yock, Gold Coast, QLD (posted 22nd January) Entry Level Vet Nurse
I am currently undertaking a Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing and am consequently seeking a work placement (willing to travel to anywhere within a 60km radius of Coolangatta in both QLD and NSW). Due to my current experience in dealing with and caring for animals, study of animal biology and infectious disease, as well as my passion to care for all animals, I believe I would be a valuable veterinary nurse student at your practice and more than capable of completing all that was required of me. Despite the fact that I am not yet qualified, I do not think you would find my presence an inconvenience or burden, but rather, believe you would more likely find me to be a quite capable, helpful and valuable asset.
I volunteer weekly (and have for several years) at both the Tweed Shire Pound and at the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary Animal Hospital. During my volunteering I am responsible for feeding and nursing animals, cleaning enclosures, holding and restraining animals, preparation of medications and often actively medicating animals. Furthermore, I often observe surgery on sick or injured wildlife, as well as euthanasia when required.
Not only have I acquired much experience with animals, but also with members of the public. As a volunteer I have consulted with individuals and families and have aided and advised in the decision of responsible pet ownership, as well as often help address any questions that members of the public may have. I have also acquired customer service skills through years of casual employment in the hospitality industry.
I have much more experience and a history of studies that are not discussed here due to length issues.
For any more information (e.g. cover letter and/or resume) please do not hesitate to contact me via mobile (0433 503 820) or email (email@example.com).

Kayla, North Melbourne Suburbs, Victoria (posted 16th January) Trainee Vet Nurse
I am looking for part time or full time work within a vet clinic that will provide me with training and on going support during my studies. I currently work within a small vet clinic but am now looking for a clinic that can give me more learning opportunities.
I am currently studying a Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing and am hoping to complete it by the end of this year.
I have been employed as a veterinary nurse for over six months and have gained some valuable experience and skills. I have experience handling and restraining all types of animals in consultations (dogs, cats, birds, rabbits, guinea pigs, rats) and am confident in doing so. My main duties and responsibilities include the every day cleaning of the clinic, customer service, assisting the Vet in consultations, sterilising and packing surgical kits and general organisation.
At the moment I have limited experience with surgery but am very eager to learn.
Through my studies I have learnt a lot of theory but have not had a chance to put most of it to practice and therefore feel like I lack a lot of skills that I should have by now. I am hoping that working in a clinic where I can get more hands on experience will help me gain the necessary skills I need to be the best at my job.
I am willing to work weekends and public holidays and am flexible with hours. I also have my own car and license.

In order to do this I require a minimum of 15 hours per week in a clinic, I am interested in full-time, part-time or casual work and can commence work as soon as required.
Since leaving high school I have done 1 and a half years of the Bachelor or Applied Science, majoring in Veterinary technology; but due to personal reasons I had to resign from this course. During my break off from University I have been working at the pet pad which is a dog grooming/dog daycare/pet supplies store and I am very eager to re-enter into the veterinary industry.
Over my time working at the pet pad I have gained many valuable skills which I can contribute to a veterinary clinic. These include restraining dogs, hydro bathing, knowledge of dog behaviour, fish, dog and cat food, worming/flea and tick products and pet supplies.

In addition to my knowledge of animals I have much experience in dealing with customers. My duties are to greet and serve customers and maintain and form bonds with customers, I believe this to be an important asset to a veterinary clinic. I also manage customers’ accounts, book grooms, call customers and operate the cash register/eftpos. I have managed the store for an open and close and am very comfortable in doing this.

Katrina Monkley, Illawara or will travel (posted 5th January) Entry level Vet Nurse
Hello, my name is Katrina;
I am a student enrolled through the Australian College of Veterinary Nursing, and am enrolled to complete my Certificate II in Animal Studies, with plans to continue to complete a Certificate IV.
I am seeking work experience for a total of 20 full time days to support my studies during this course, and am fully insured for all work experience that is gained. I currently reside in the Illawara region of Sydney, but am willing to travel to areas surrounding the Sydney Region.
I have not formally worked in a veterinary clinic, however, have a strong work ethic and educational background and have worked continuously as a Software Engineer for the past three and a half years. I have been dedicated to my work during this time; however I am looking to advance my career in Veterinary Nursing.
In conjunction with my strong work ethic, I have experience in customer service, having worked five years at a local pharmacy where I was responsible for greeting customers and supplying them with correct medicine following the Pharmacist in charge’s prognosis. I also have a strong desire to learn, having undertaken multiple short courses to support my work as both a Software Engineer as well as a Pharmacy Assistant.
Lily Doble, NSW wide (posted 5th January) Trainee Vet Nurse
My name is Lily Doble and I am looking for an Entry Level Position as a Veterinary Nurse. I am currently studying my Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing through TAFE while volunteering at Bowenfels Veterinary Clinic in Lithgow two days a week since August 2014. In conjunction with my work placement and studies I have also working casually at The Fairmont Resort for income.
Through Bowenfels Veterinary Clinic I have learnt how to;
• Handle and restrain animals safely
• Clean cages, consult rooms, floors and surgery
• Stock food, medications and injections
• Proper cleaning and sterilisation of surgical instruments
• Carry out BUN, PCV and TP blood tests
• I have also recently begun to give intramuscular and intradermal injections
I have a friendly and mature personality and work well as part of a team. I pride myself on punctuality and my ability to be a fast learner. I’m a motivated individual and I am extremely interested in an opportunity to become a part of a Veterinary Clinic team.
I grew up on a small agricultural farm in Hargraves, NSW assisting with sheep and goats which has given me a range of capabilities such as feeding, animal care, birthing, drafting, lamb castration, ear tagging and injecting vaccines intradermally. I believe this in conjunction with currently volunteering for a clinic has given me the attributes necessary to become a successful Veterinary Nurse. I’m very eager to learn and improve my skills.
Although I am currently living in Katoomba, I would happily move elsewhere if an opportunity arose. I am available to work immediately.
Please contact me on 0429 494585 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to see my CV or arrange an interview.

Ashleigh Dougherty, Brisbane South-East, QLD (posted 27th November) Trainee Vet Nurse
My name is Ashleigh Dougherty, I possess a Certificate II in veterinary nursing.
In 2013 my motivation to work in the Veterinary Science field was highlighted by my completion of the certificate II in Veterinary Nursing. This certification was completed through Greencross Veterinary Practice Capalaba under the Animal Industries Resource Centre (AIRC). I would love to go on to complete my Certificate IV in Veterinary nursing through AIRC, but in order for me to do so, I require employment in practice.
Although, I am passionate towards all animals, I specifically have a passion for avian science and have been breeding a range of parrots since 2010; I find birds an inquisitive and fascinating species where many people do not.
As part of my current studies I am completing a Diploma in Laboratory Technologies with a duel specialization in Pathology and Biochemistry, The course includes basic human and animal anatomy and physiology, biochemistry, disease status and diagnosis as well as chemistry and laboratory testing components. Even though not directly related to Veterinary Science it complements my previous Veterinary Nursing studies.
I have a bright, bubbly and energetic personality. I always try to be as enthusiastic, driven and confident as possible and pride myself on dressing and acting in a professional manner at all times. I fully believe I have the dedication and motivation that is required to be successful within this industry.
I'd love to hear from you if you are willing and able to support me during my current studies and endeavors please don’t hesitate to contact me.
