Part-time or Casual Veterinary nurse - 2 days a week - Thursdays and Fridays

An opportunity has opened up at our privately owned family practice in Perth’s northern suburbs. We are seeking an experienced registered veterinary nurse on Thursdays and Fridays in a job sharing role.

This is a challenging, fast paced and rewarding role that will allow you to explore most aspects of veterinary nursing in a professional, well staffed and supporting environment. 

Who are we?
Wanneroo Vet Hospital is a busy small animal hospital that has been operating since 1978. We have established great client-relationships and we have a large client base with a high number of long-standing costumers. In fact, we have been looking after families for generations!
Our team currently consists of 8 vets and 12 nurses, and we are dedicated to both supporting and challenging each other to ensure we are giving our patients the best of the best. We have attained accreditation as a Lincoln Institute "Employer Of Choice”, a Leadership program that allows us to grow the careers and confidence of our team members.

What makes this opportunity so inviting?
Amongst the many benefits, you get to work and grow with a well-staffed team of enthusiastic, fun and vibrant professionals. Being a team of high accountability and with an emphasis on autonomy, we understand the importance of building good staff relations and looking after each other.

We operate on a 6-week roster, with 5 different shifts to be worked each day. As such, you will be required to draw on all of your experience in Vet Nursing, Surgery and Reception.
There is no after-hours work and wages are paid well above award, based on experience and attitude.

There is no rostered weekend work required for this role – unless we have unscheduled illness, then we naturally "pass the hat around” to cover our team.

Continued education is encouraged and supported, and we strive to always look after our patients as best as we possibly can.

You will be experiencing all aspects of GP nursing and no day is the same! We rotate areas of responsibilities, and you will be doing both surgical nursing as well as reception work.

What does the role entail?
Responsibilities of the role includes (but is not limited to):

What are we looking for?
The ideal candidate will have excellent communication, listening and customer service skills, as well as extensive knowledge of animal health. We seek someone whose professional values align with those of the team. Good computer skills are essential, and although having experience working with Cornerstone Veterinary Practice Management software will be highly regarded, it is not a must. We will train the right candidate for the role.

To be a successful candidate you need to hold a certificate IV in veterinary nursing and be registered with the Veterinary Practice Board of WA. The successful candidate will need flexibility to adapt to our 6 week roster, as no two days are exactly the same. We are well staffed, so you will have plenty of support from the team around you. 

So, if you are interested in becoming part of a fun and exciting team who are dedicated to animal welfare, then we want to hear from you!

Claremont Veterinary Hospital, Western Perth, WA (posted 17th April)

claremont logo

Full-Time Experienced Nurse Position

Claremont Veterinary Hospital has an on-going position available for a suitably qualified and experienced (+3yrs) professional veterinary nurse.

We are fortunate to have clients that are truly invested in their pet’s well-being and follow our guidance on case workups. This means we have some very finely tuned geriatrics and medical cases that you can truly make a difference to.

Our Position
The role is both client facing (admission and discharge appointments, dental checks, repeat injections) and clinical/surgical (blood draws, general anaesthesia, radiographs etc). It is pivotal in helping our team achieve quality patient and client care.

About You
You are a professional nurse that pays attention detail. You empathise with client’s fears as they hand over their pet to you for surgery. You are organised and efficient whilst maintaining a sense of calm. You enjoy both human and animal communication. It goes without saying that you have integrity, are honest and respect your co-workers and clients and that you are happy to follow instructions and ask questions.

Our Practice
We are 100% small animals and very vanilla – desexings, lumps and dentals. We utilise visiting consultants and specialists and refer patients out for advanced surgery or medical workups.

We are open Monday – Friday 7:45am – 6:15pm and Saturdays 8-1pm. There are no patients in hospital overnight so there are no afterhours duties. Shifts are either all day with a 45-minute lunch break or finish at 4pm.

We use Ezyvet – it's not always easy but generally it behaves.

To Apply
If this sounds like you and the sort of position you are looking for, please email your application, inclusive of two relevant and recent referees, to

If you don’t have the required experience, please do not apply as your application will be declined and that just brings disappointment – none of us need that.

We are searching for a confident and enthusiastic nurse who possesses the ability to multitask and work well under pressure in an environment where emotions can run high.

Although training will be provided, applicants must possess the ability to work unsupervised as well as demonstrate reasonable proficiency in basic nursing skills.



Perth Veterinary Specialists relies on our nurse's ability to commit to shift work and teamwork, therefore we take our recruitment process very seriously.
