Jessica Isaacs, Mornington Peninsula, SE Melbourne & Bass Coast VIC (posted 14th June) Training Cert IV Veterinary Nurse

Junior nurse with 2.5 years experience seeking to return to the industry after a year away. I have a Certificate III in Animal Studies, a Stress Free Pets Pet Professional Accreditation and am currently studying a Certificate IV in Animal Behaviour and Training through Delta Institute.

During my previous nursing experience I was competent in the preparation, monitoring and aftercare of surgery, placing catheters, administering injections, doing nurse consults, and admin duties.

I am currently looking for a clinic that will help me continue to grow as a vet nurse and get back to the profession I love. I miss being able to help the patients and educate the clients. I have been unable to find a job as fulfilling a vet nursing was. I thrive in busy clinics where there is always something to do.

I am seeking full time work not too far from home. I am available for an immediate start. Ideally the clinic will not be open past 6.30pm, allowing me time to get home at a reasonable hour. I am happy to stay back for the occasional emergency surgery.

If I sound like a good fit for your team, or if you would like more information about me, please feel free to send an email to

Kirsten Cummins, Werribee, VIC (posted 12th June) Training Cert IV Veterinary Nurse

Hi, my name is Kirsten, I am a 23-year-old Veterinary Nursing student looking for a potential paid part-time traineeship in a Veterinary Clinic. I am originally from Northern Ireland but completed all my secondary schooling in Australia, graduating in 2018.

I completed my Certificate II in Animal Studies in 2018 whilst doing VET in schools. Whilst undertaking my Certificate II in Animal Studies, I did some placement in a dog groomers as an assistant, so have some experience when it comes to bathing animals. I've always known I wanted to work with animals, so in 2016 I had the amazing opportunity, to do my year 10 work experience at Lort Smith in the kennels.

I am currently doing a 12-month Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing at The Gordon in East Geelong, so am halfway to being fully qualified. My class days are Monday and Tuesday, but I am free to work Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, and weekends if needed. I currently work part-time at Flight Centre, so know about the day-to-day demands of a busy job, however, if I am successful in finding a paid part-time traineeship, I will leave my job at Flight Centre to fully devote myself to the animal care industry.

I would be looking for at least 20 hours of minimum work a week, but am more than happy to work more as needed. I need at least 240 hours of placement to finish the year and am currently sitting at just over 100 hours so am halfway there. My current placement is in Dandenong, I have no issues with this clinic but living in Werribee, it is quite a bit of a journey, so would prefer something a bit closer to home.

If you have any questions please feel free to reach out, I'd also be more than happy to send through my current resume.

Chiara Travaglino, Brisbane QLD (posted 30th May) Overseas Qualified Vet seeking Vet Nurse work

Hello there! 

My name is Chiara Travaglino and I am an Italian vet, now located in Brisbane. I have arrived in Australia on a working holiday visa.

I worked as a veterinarian for 5 years in Europe (Italy, Belgium, and France) primarily handling the medicine and surgery of exotic animals and wildlife, though I also have experience with dogs and cats. 

My plan is to pass the MCQ exam next year, and in the meantime, I would really like to find a job as a veterinary nurse for two main reasons: first of all, because I miss working in the clinic terribly, and secondly, because I would like to familiarize myself with the clinical practices in this country.

I am proficient in various clinical and surgical procedures, such as collecting blood, placing IV catheters, providing critical care to patients, monitoring anesthesia, etc., and I am also confident in receptionist tasks such as handling phone calls and selling products.

In addition to my veterinary experience, I possess strong adaptability skills and a sense of responsibility. I know how to work in a team, I am able to listen and communicate with others and carry out the directives given to me, but I am also able to take the initiative when needed and in case of emergency.

I am used to working under pressure, for extended hours and during night shifts.

I am a friendly individual who thrives in a positive and supportive work environment.

Please feel free to reach out if you require any further information at

I am willing to relocate for the right position.

After I get my veterinarian degree I worked as a veterinary assistant, where during my 2 years and 8 months of experience I was involved in nursing roles: preoperative and postoperative care, medicating patients, IV catheter placement, customer service and stock checklist. In addition, I was responsible for animal restraint and handling, to prepare animals to surgery, assist in dogs and cats’ de-sexing surgeries and other tasks and skills, learning a lot about assisting in surgeries and clinical cases.

However, I cannot work as a veterinarian in Australia yet because I still need to recognise my veterinarian qualification, so I am looking for an opportunity in my professional field, as a pet or livestock veterinary nurse or assistant, to work hard and learn even more with the team and to be able to grow professionally, helping with everything it is possible while I am preparing myself to the Australian Veterinary Examination.
