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.

Daniel Anderson, Perth Metro & Surrounds, WA (posted 21st March) Trainee Vet Nurse
Hi my name is Daniel Anderson I'm looking for the opportunity of an veterinary nurse trainee. I'm currently studying Cert III in companion animal services with open colleges, upon successfully completion I'll start Cert IV in Veterinary Nursing.
I've have experience at varies animal care establishments from animal attendant to veterinary nursing duties. I'm hard working, friendly, helpful, efficient, reliable, have a can do attitude and I'm very willing to learn new skills. I also have over 10 years personal experience with the care of my own animals and I'm always willing to help and give advise to family and friends on the care of their animals.
I'm currently living in Jurien Bay in WA and ideally I'm looking for a clinic in the Perth metro area, but I'm very much willing to go anywhere for the right position and ultimately my goal is to find a position in Melbourne.
I know asking for a veterinary nurse trainee position is a big ask and risk for a veterinary clinic to take on. But Veterinary nursing is the career I've wanted to do since I was kid, although it's taken me a few years for me to make a start in getting there, but I'm very much determined to do anything to make my dreams and goals a reality.
All I need is someone out there to give me that chance and opportunity and I'll do the rest. If you have any questions or for a copy of my CV and references please email me at email@example.com or phone me on 0431 394 992
