Brook Kennedy, East Melbourne (posted 24th April) Trainee VN

Hello,
My name is Brook Kennedy and i am a passionate, hard-working and determined 23 year old.
I am currently studying Cert IV in Animal companion services through open colleges, throughout this course I do need to complete 140 hours or work placement. Ideally I would love the opportunity to obtain a trainee ship as a vet nurse or animal attendant so I can continue gaining hands on experience after completing my 140 hours or work placement. 
I have only recently moved to St kilda area of Melbourne from far north Queensland so somewhere on the east side of Melbourne would be ideal. I do have my own reliable transport so that will be no issue.
I previously have worked for the RSPCA QLD as an animal attendant. I simply loved this job and everything involved in it. A lot of people think that working with animals is a fun cuddly job but I know everything there is to know about it on the good and not so good side. Working at the RSPCA I gained a lot of skills including, cleaning of pens, caring for animals, administering medication and vaccinations, general medical check ups, and also the not so favorable but doable job of Euthanasia. 

As I just moved to Melbourne with my Husband I have no social life so am available for immediate start of work. I am available 8am-6pm 7 days a week.

I can be contacted by email on brookkennedy@live.com and I can send through my current resume  or via phone on 0406 866 280

Looking forward from hearing from you and being a part of your team.


Hannah Bergin, Melbourne (posted 23rd April) Trainee Vet Nurse

My name is Hannah Bergin, I am a passionate and hardworking 28 year old currently looking for volunteer work within the animal Industry.

I am currently studying my Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing through Open Colleges. Throughout this course I need to undertake a set amount of hours volunteering to gain valuable work experience and also to be able to pass the course. This is also something that I wish to do personally, as this is my dream and I want to help where I can.
Since a young girl working with animals is something I have wanted to do. I have always had pets growing up, this being what started my passion for animals.
I would like to be able to turn this from being a pet owner into a career and someone that is able to help animals and their owners. I feel that by learning to be a veterinary nurse I will be able to achieve this. I would like to be given the opportunity to learn how to educate others in the importance of providing good care to their animals.
Along with a passion for all animals, a kind and nurturing nature and the determination to succeed and excel in this field I believe that I would be an attribute to any workplace.
Although I have limited industry experience, the joy I receive from having my own animals has shown me how important proper veterinary care is. I would like to learn how to educate other owners in the importance of providing good care to their animals and I feel this can be achieved through gaining valuable experience volunteering in a veterinary clinic in conjunction with studying a veterinary nursing qualification

I am reliable, honest, hard working, have good interpersonal skills and excellent customer service that I have gained through working in both face to face customer service and office based for the past 10 years.

As I do work 9 –5 Monday to Friday I am looking for hours either after work or anytime on weekends, within Melbourne Victoria and am able to start immediately.

I can be contacted via email hannah.bergin2012@gmail.com and my resume and cover letter can be sent via request. I can also be contacted on 0424 867 703.
