Sunshine Coast Vets, Panoma, Noosa Shire (posted 24th June)

Sunshine Coast Vets Logo

Vet Nurse/Vet Tech - Great Pay, Great Location, Great Work Life Balance

Small country practice with big, devoted clientele (read our reviews)

The position requires high doses of:

We are not a corporate! Just a young team of super enthusiastic and talented animal lovers who are living our dream. Our small country clinic in the small town of Pomona (close to Noosa....think beautiful beaches / great surf / restaurants / hiking) is as close to James Herriott as you could get! We are solely small animals but also work with several wildlife rescue groups. We aim to be the best employer in the industry with the highest standard of care, best working conditions and best wages available. We have excellent staff retention, already have the best employees and are looking for one more. i.e: You !

Our clinic started in 2010 opening in a small shop in Pomona's main street. After 5 years we had "outgrown" ourselves and shifted to a grand old bank building which we converted to the surgery we have today. Back then we certainly didn't have the effective tick preventatives we have today and there began a tradition of sleeping next to the cage and doing whatever it needed to pull a patient through. Thankfully we don't see nearly as many tick cases today (or yawning) however the same dedication to the care of our patients remains. We don't expect you to sleep by any cages but we do require someone with the same drive and dedication that in many cases is the difference between a precious family member making it back home or not. We have all the usual gadgets (Digital x ray, The latest in House Blood Machines etc) but it's our attitude to what we do that sets us apart. If an animal needs it...it gets done....whether that means enlisting the help of visiting imaging specialists or referral for complicated spinal surgery. Thankfully we have an excellent clientele that allow us to practice "Best practice medicine" ensuring excellent job satisfaction. When $ preclude treatment we are a clinic that has a big heart and always finds a way to help somehow.

Our nurses/techs come from many different backgrounds and countries. Clem our other vet likes cheese for dessert....she's French. Dora loves travelling and tiny houses ...She's from Poland. Becs' got a "Jet Burner stove" and likes hiking...she's from Canada...The rest of us are born and bred Aussies.

About this Role:

We would love to hear from you!

Maleny Veterinary Services, Sunshine Coast Hinterland (posted 25th May) Parental Leave Cover x 2 From August

maleny logo

Maleny Veterinary Services is a mixed practice located in the hinterland of the Sunshine Coast. We are blessed with gorgeous countryside, lovely clients (as a rule!) and great proximity to Brisbane and the beaches of the Sunshine Coast.

We are a close-knit team of five vets and nine super-nurses; we’re proud of our comradery and supportive environment….and we’re looking for some help!

Two of our super-nurses are off on maternity leave later in the year and we’re hoping for an angel to step in and fill some shoes for us for 6 months from August 2021. There may well be an opportunity to extend this period by mutual agreement…depending on how our amazing mums go.

Our practice philosophy is one of providing outstanding, old fashioned service coupled with the pursuit of excellence in what we do. We’ve got Vision PMS, the usual myriad of “machines that go ‘ping’” and are always looking to learn new stuff and master new skills. We are proud to support our clients and community so still do our own afterhours and run clinics on Saturdays and Sundays. Having said that, we look after each other knowing that without a strong team, we can’t do our job well.

We are looking two qualified, experienced super-nurses. We are potentially offering two positions with a working week of between 20 and 38 hours (with any overtime paid in addition). Your rostered week days can be negotiated. You will be required to participate in our weekend roster of a Saturday and Sunday morning (plus “on-call” during that weekend) about every 4 to 5 weeks. Salary is commensurate with experience.

If you share our philosophy and dedication to animal care, have great communication and organisation skills AND a ridiculous sense of humour, we look forward to hearing from you.

Please send your resume to info@malenyvet.com.au

Our Mermaid Vet clinic, centrally located on the Gold Coast, is just a few minutes from the white sands of Mermaid Beach. A veterinary surgery has been established on this site for over forty years. Since purchasing the clinic fourteen years ago, the owners have been successful in growing the practice into one of the most highly respected clinics on the Gold Coast. The clinic is family owned and operated with a belief in placing the patient first by providing the best veterinary care, without the need for ‘over servicing’ or performance reviews. We work hard to provide an environment in which veterinary nurses can enjoy their work every day.

Having the highest quality veterinary equipment means that diagnostic procedures can be efficient and more enjoyable in the day-to-day routine. Our clinic has a dedicated imaging room with DR x-ray and an advanced ultrasound machine. Our DR x-ray machine produces high resolution images in a matter of seconds. We also have an advanced ultrasound sound machine with 3d Doppler that we use routinely, but also provide training for our staff through a visiting ultra-sonographer.

We have an outstanding group of nurses with decades of experience between them. They are highly supportive of our staff and take pride in our clinic. Our nurses all excel in various fields that support primary veterinary care including nutrition and behavioural training.

As the practice continues to grow, we have the opportunity to offer a veterinary nurse traineeship.

We offer a steady and manageable daily work load with 30 minutes allocated for lunch every day. Shifts are structured with 5 veterinary nurses working at any one time on week days and 4 veterinary nurses on Saturday mornings. This provides excellent peer support for veterinary nurses and enough time to manage the day to day running of the clinic. Pay rate is based on level of experience and suitability to the practice.

Veterinary Nurse - Full Time or Part Time

We’re expanding! As a result, we are looking for a fabulous, experienced nurse to join our energetic and fun-loving team on a full-time or part-time basis.

Happy Paws Veterinary Clinic is a young (3 years and growing fast!) fun and progressive small animal practice. We are an independently owned and operated, purpose built clinic on the northern end of the Gold Coast in the suburb of Coombabah.

Our team of 3 vets and 5 nurses are fun loving people who are in the veterinary profession because we have a real passion for what we do. We have a great clinic culture and enjoy spending time outside of work with each other.

Our focus at work is to provide true AAA service to all our clients and patients. We strive to consistently exceed expectations and we value integrity, compassion, attention to detail and above all – Positivity!! We offer half hour appointments as standard and really focus on getting to know our clients and letting them get to know us, so great communication is also essential!

We have all the usual bells and whistles as well as a decent sized staff/lunchroom so you can actually sit down to eat at a proper table!

If you truly enjoy getting to know your clients and developing a long-term relationship with them and view your teammates as family as opposed to just colleagues, then this could be the job for you! (a love of coffee/tea/V, Uber eats, Ezyvet and laughing so hard you snort would also be desirable traits to have!)
