Andy Hsu, Logan & Surrounds, QLD (posted 15th July) Experienced Vet Tech Seeking Sponsorship

My name is Andy Hsu. I graduated from the University of Queensland in 2020 with a degree in Bachelor of Veterinary Technology. I have worked as a full-time Veterinary Technician/ Nurse in general practice in Logan area, Queensland since 2021. Recently, I renewed my working visa for the final time and waited to transit to a sponsor visa but unfortunately, my current employer was not in a position to complete the process. Therefore, I am looking for sponsorship with a new employer as soon as possible.

I am skilled in receptionist duties, laboratory works, placing intravenous catheters, inducing and intubating patients, anaesthesia monitoring, collimating and taking radiographs. I have experience in using the RxWorks system and occasionally took responsibility for the head nurse role to keep the clinic running smoothly with the other nurses, doing stocktake and ordering stock.

I fully understand the requirements for sponsorship are complicated and strict. I would appreciate the opportunity to meet with you to discuss my application in an interview.

Corinne, Northern Melbourne, VIC (In clinic) or Australia-Wide (remote) (posted 5th July) Experienced & Qualified Vet Nurse


My name is Corinne and I am a qualified veterinary nurse of 24 years who is looking for extra work. Preferably a role working from home, helping with administration or phones would be preferable.

I am currently working casually for a home euthanasia service and was hoping to be able to find a position that complements this one.

My passions are customer care, particularly end of life care and triage. I would consider an in-clinic role in the northern suburbs of Melbourne to help cover sick days and leave, for the right clinic. 

Please contact me or call me on 0488 235 541 to discuss any opportunities you might have that suit. 

Thank you

Anaisa Grapiglia, Gold Coast, QLD (posted 1st July) Qualified o/s Vet seeking Vet Nurse Employment

Brazilian veterinarian looking for an opportunity as a vet nurse.

I have recently moved to the Gold Cost to experience the amazing live-style that this city provides and now I am ready to take on new challenges. I dedicated my college years to small animals, and towards the end of my studies, I fell in love with radiology which I have been working since 2020, including my Residency.

This journey has provided me with extensive experience in treatment and the care of hospitalised animals and anaesthetic and post-operative procedures.
Send me an e-mail to have more details about my skills and work experience.

It would be lovely to hear back from your team to discuss how my background, enthusiasm, and commitment align with the needs of your clinic. I am more than happy to schedule an interview at your convenience and change my schedule to work as a vet nurse. This is my priority at this moment.

Certainly, my experience as a veterinarian in Brazil would bring great advantages to your clinic as I am already trained in small animal anaesthetic and surgical procedures, safely restraining animals and excellent client relationships

Thank you for considering my application. I look forward to the possibility of discussing how I can contribute to you.

Virginia Bekker, Sunbury/North & West Melbourne, VIC (posted 28th June) Experienced Part Time Vet Nurse

Please Give This Mature Aged Woman a Go!

Hi, my name is Virginia and I am interested in finding Part-time employment, which will then be able to help me complete my Cert IV Vet Nursing. I live in Sunbury, Victoria and wish to find something within a reasonable travelling distance.

I was previously an unqualified Veterinary Nurse for 7 years, which I left in October 2016. I was out of the Veterinary industry until February 2024, at which time I decided to return to the job that I love and miss. I am currently working 1.5 days a week and would like more hours.

I am an experienced mature aged person, who has old-school morals and values and likes to live life with a glass-half-full approach. I'm empathic, patient, friendly, a team player, I have the ability to work independently and happy to roll up my sleeves and do whatever needs to be done around the clinic. 

I don't have any issues with taking directions and I love to learn new skills. I also love to have a laugh, but definitely not good at telling jokes. And according to me, I can make pretty good coffee or tea.

My availability is negotiable, but would love it if the hours could allow me to attend campus for the Cert IV course, when I enrol.

Thank you for taking the time to read my advert and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Jessica Isaacs, Bass Coast & Surrounds, VIC (posted 14th June) Training Cert IV Veterinary Nurse

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

During my previous nursing experience I was able to competently prepare, monitor and wake up patients from surgery, place catheters, administer injections, do nurse consults, and perform reception 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 near the Bass Coast. 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.
