Emily, Brisbane (posted 17th June) New Zealand Qualified Vet Nurse

My Name is Emily, I am looking to return to vet nursing. I started my career in hospitality and retail.

I qualified back in 2003 in Invercargill New Zealand. Following this I did some locum work before finding a permanent position in my home city Christchurch. For two and a half years I worked at a clinic which was owned by the Cats Protection League at the beginning of my employment.

My animal handling skills are excellent. I'm accurate with measurements and instructions. I enjoy having a connection to animal’s emotions and have good insight to their needs. I was a very committed vet nurse; I took animals for further care home to ensure of their safety.

I must confess that my experience in surgery was mainly with halothane gas. Only as a Locum nurse, did I use modern equipment. I gave up working in vet nursing at 40 weeks pregnant.

In the last 6 years I have been working as a receptionist, then later as an optical assistant.

I would like to find a new clinic to work fulltime (over thirty hours). I am willing to relocate as I miss vet nursing. Currently I live in Brisbane Queensland but I am open to city or country life.

Please feel free to email me emilyroseabdel@hotmail.com, or phone me 0413 494022


Taiya, Newcastle (posted 17th June) Newly Qualified Cert IV Vet Nurse

Hi my names is Taiya ,

I currently live in Newcastle NSW and I have just completed my Certificate IV in veterinary nursing .

I currently work as a dog trainer two days a week, helping owners teach their dogs commands and learning how to have a happy yet obedient dog. My passion with animals lies with the training and behaviour as well as medical nursing. I believe training and behaviour relates a lot to animals that are in the clinic for surgery or just for a visit and if we can combine the two animals would have a must relaxed experience at the vets.

Apart from training dogs, my experience with animals started when I began working in a boarding kennel and has since then come from my work experience in vet clinics whilst studying. I'm ver passionate about a career as a vet nurse / animal behaviourist and I'm willing to go to great lengths to prove I'm a hard worker and loyal employee.

I'm a quicker leaner, goal orientated, able to work within a team as well as independently of needed. I also have great initiative as I don't like to stand around.

I happy to work full time, part time or casual and I'm very willing to travel and work long hours.

My resume outlines my skills and experience in greater detail and I'm available anytime for an interview, I look forward to discussing my further with you soon.

Thank you for your time
