I currently work as a baker from Tuesday to Thursday and I am looking for opportunities to transition into the veterinary nursing pathway. I have all day Friday and Monday available for a part time or casual position as well as some Saturdays and Sundays. I am also open to a full-time position if the opportunity arises.

My interests within the veterinary industry are very broad now as I am mostly keen on advancing my Nursing, surgical and medical experience and gaining more overall knowledge. I do wish to eventually learn more about natural health and alternative medicines, and have a particular interest in physiotherapy with animals.

As a lover of nature I have a love for all animals including snakes, birds, exotic animals and Australian wildlife and I am intrigued in the different practices, handling and nursing skills required to work with these animals. I have gained experience through work placement at 3 different small animal veterinary clinics throughout my course studies and have also previously done volunteer work within the veterinary hospital and desex clinic at the Wacol RSPCA.

I am a consistent worker and am on a constant aim to provide the best service within my role. I am never without a goal to improve on a skill and am open to learning new things and new methods of practice. I am a happy and positive person and excited in perusing a veterinary nursing career.

If you are interested in a fresh new graduate then you can email me on and I can provide you with my resume or any more information you may seek. Phone: 0413 753 692

Erin Gilbert, Gold Coast, QLD (posted 25th July) Qualified & Experienced Vet Nurse

My name is Erin Gilbert and I gained my Certificate in Veterinary Nursing and Advanced Veterinary Nursing at Tamworth Tafe NSW in 1999. After working in the industry in which I am extremely passionate about,I decided to take a break from Nursing and focus on raising my children to which they are now at school.

I am now hoping to become employed on a Casual or Part Time basis on the Gold Coast and understand that because I have taken a substantial break from the industry that I may be required to undertake a Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing.

I would love the opportunity to regain employment in this field and am extremely dedicated to applying myself to any task asked of me
