Angela, Melbourne East & Surrounds, VIC (posted 30th August) Trainee Vet Nurse/Receptionist/Animal Attendant

Hello, 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 worked within the grooming industry for two and a half years and during that time I gained extensive experience in bathing, drying, brushing out, nail trimming and providing customer service.. I was previously employed as a Veterinary Nurse/Receptionist at Boronia Veterinary Clinic but I am now looking for a role within a smaller clinic which will allow me to thrive and reach my full potential. I am more than willing to work as a kennel hand/cattery attendant also. 

I undertook a Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing (Reception Skill Set) at  Box Hill this year, which enabled me to gain a strong understanding of the veterinary nurse role and it also allowed me to have the opportunity to have hands on experience with a range of different animals within the school vet clinic. I would love the opportunity to work within a clinic whilst I complete the rest of my Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing. I would prefer to work within a clinic which is located in the Eastern suburbs of Melbourne but I am willing to travel further if the right opportunity presented itself. If you would like a copy of my CV or you would like to know more please do not hesitate to contact me.

Lani, Australia-wide (posted 26th July) Qualified & Experienced Vet Nurse

I believe I possess the necessary skills and experience you are seeking and would make a valuable addition to your clinic. I am looking for Full Time or Part time work, and I am interested in attaining a working visa and travel to a different country for work; if the job is not in Australia, that is ok i am willing to travel! I am available to start work from August 2016.

I worked hard to attain my qualification, after applying amongst 50 others, with only 12 positions available; I was accepted into a Veterinary Nursing program during years 11 and 12, where I attained my Cert 2 in Veterinary Nursing. I chose this as one of my extra subjects, as well as my TEE classes. At the graduation ceremony, I received the Veterinary Nursing award for my year group, being top of my class. I was then fast tracked into the Full Time course at Bentley Tafe, where I became Cert IV qualified at the end of 2009. I was the youngest in my Tafe class to be qualified by the age of 18. I have been qualified for over 6 years now, and have had over 3 year’s full time experience in clinic, as well as 2 years part time or casual. I am excited and enthusiastic to find a permanent position so I can continue to work with animals which I love doing. I have great communications skills that allow me to gather the information needed from clients to help determine the problems their pets are having, and relay them to the vet effectively. I have the skills to perform minor operations/ treatments on my own (such as dentals- scale and polish) and I have the ability to administer medication and monitor patients during and after surgery. I enjoy Communicating with clients to explain any problems regarding their pets and to help educate them on proper care of their pets.

I enjoy reception duties such as booking in appointments and counter sales, as you are able to interact with clients, as well as their beloved family member. I have acquired the proper training and experience needed to perform routine daily operations that include; assisting the vets whenever needed, physical exams, vaccinations, daily and weekly takings reports, timesheets,  assisting/ performing x-rays, running blood panels, C+S, staining slides, ordering stock and supplies, entering invoices, to name a few. Patience is key to working with sick and scared animals that are not always happy to see the vet. And in times where animals may be too sick or injured to save, I have the mental stability and compassion to deal with these matters. Whilst it can be a very emotional time, I am able to deal with these situations in a professional manner.

Please email me at: if you would like me to forward my resume. I look forward to speaking with you further regarding any available position that may come up.
