Kangaroo Island Vet Clinic Logo

Experienced Veterinary Nurse - Part to Full Time

Is making a difference to the lives of companion animal owners and farmers something you are passionate about?

Would you like to make the most of living in one of Australia’s highly prized tourist destinations?

Would you like to work in a modern rural clinic with the opportunity to work with a large and exciting range of species?

Does the idea of working with a small and supportive team who provide the time and mentoring to develop new skills appeal to you?

Kangaroo Island Veterinary Clinic is searching for an experienced veterinary nurse. The right person will possess a Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing but people with a Certificate II in Animal Studies with relevant experience and enthusiasm will also be considered! The right person will have experience with animal handling and husbandry, as well as medical and surgical nursing. The right person would also have a sound foundation in providing advice and support to companion animal owners. Personal and/or professional experience with horses and production animals are not mandatory but an absolute plus!

Your roles within the business would include:

The Kangaroo Island Veterinary Clinic has been established for 38 years. It is a true rural mixed practice that sees approximately 50% small animal and wildlife, 30% sheep, 15% cattle and 5% equine work. The newly expanded purpose-built clinic accommodates small and large animal consults, including mobile services. It also features a large farm animal retail section for provision of products backed by high quality, specific advice from qualified staff with a thorough understanding of animal and farming systems. The small animal facilities are continually expanding and upgrading and include fully computerised PMS, digital x-ray, ultrasound machines, full surgical suite and a full in-house laboratory.

The clinic is located just 3km from Kingscote, the major town servicing the Island. You won’t be missing anything on this Island – the substantial tourism and agriculture sectors support an array of amenities locally, including various art and sporting facilities and clubs, a well equipped hospital, horse riding groups and several schools and supermarkets. It is only a short 20 minute flight to the capital city of South Australia, Adelaide. The Island is a remarkable place that provides a unique lifestyle unlike anywhere else. A lot of our team members have relocated to Kangaroo Island to enjoy what it offers – an incredible unspoilt natural environment with wide expanses of beaches and bush, authentic wildlife experiences, premium local food and wine, art inspired by peaceful, wild surrounds and the opportunity for agricultural ventures.

The successful applicant must be a team player as you'll be joining our tight knit team of 4 vets and 7 support staff. A large part of this role involves interacting with our loyal and valued clients, therefore you must also be a people person with great enthusiasm and a good sense of humour! Hours and remuneration for the right candidate is negotiable depending on experience and will be above award. As mentioned previously, experience is a must but we believe attitude is everything and skills can be developed and polished through mentorship and training - so if you feel you have the right strengths to offer please apply!

Our team is our greatest asset so we make it a priority to find the right people. We want everyone to have fun, love their job and have the time to enjoy their wonderful surrounds outside of work. If you feel passionate about this role and excited to move to Kangaroo Island, then please don’t hesitate to email your written application and resume!

Full time veterinary nurse

At the Adelaide Bird and Exotics Vet Centre we have a high caseload of first opinion, referral and emergency work and our vet nurses are integral in providing outstanding care to all patients. After recent renovations and an increase in vet numbers, we are now looking to add more nursing staff to the team to assist in providing excellent customer care and service. Applicants should be able to work in a busy, fast-paced environment with excellent communication skills, and have a strong client focus. Think east coast busy clinic, rather than sleepy Adelaide! Attention to detail is a must as our nurses play a key role in the care of our unusual patients. Being able to multitask and work well under pressure is a must as no two days are ever the same. We are replacing a nurse who has left to go to uni and one who wanted to work closer to home.

Experience with exotics is preferred but a passion for their welfare is essential. We can teach the skills, but you need to bring the hype. Animals seen include birds (pet, aviculture, chickens, pigeons), reptiles and small mammals (rabbits, ferrets, rodents and marsupials).

Your responsibilities will include:
