Hayley, Gold Coast & South Brisbane Region (posted 21st February) Junior Vet Nurse

To Whom it may concern,

My name is Hayley and I am a Junior Vet Nurse, recently relocated from Sydney to the Northern Gold Coast region. I am seeking part-time/casual employment within the Gold Coast and South Brisbane Region, and have the ability to start work immediately. I have definite plans to commence further studies in a Cert IV in Veterinary Nursing, and subsequently looking for a work environment in which I can grow and further my skills to become an efficient and well-rounded vet nurse.

I also have obtained 1+ years hands on experience within a small, general practice clinic in Western Sydney. With this I was able to demonstrate competency in a range of skills including, but not limited to, reception duties, inventory management, animal husbandry, nursing and monitoring of basic surgical procedures, IV catheter placement, blood collection, etc. I also have capability to administer basic local blocks, such as intratesticular blocks, post operative medications, and successfully discharge basic surgery patients to owners with description of post-operative care. With that said, I also have previous experience in assisting with x-rays and ultrasounds alongside data entry into dental charts.

I value a positive workplace that prioritises the safety of both patient and work colleagues, whilst providing the best quality care and compassion to clients.

If you are seeking staff on a part-time basis and would like to get in touch, feel free to contact me via mobile (0416100510) or email (hayleyneal2003@gmail). I look forward to hearing from you in regards to any applications.

Kat Sidholm, Perth, WA (posted 20th February) Qualified & Experienced Vet Nurse

Hi!

I am a qualified & experienced (10+ years) veterinary nurse registered with the Veterinary Surgeons' Board of WA. I am very flexible with my hours and would be happy to work weekends. 

I have advanced skills and I am experienced in all aspects of clinical, surgical and hospital veterinary nursing as well as reception, I also have emergency and critical care nursing experience.

I have experience leading a team and working in busy, high-pressure environments. I can work well in a team or independently, often working as sole charge nurse opening or closing clinics. 
I also have experience teaching and supervising students.

I have exceptional communication skills and I am a very organized person who pays attention to detail, uses initiative, and can prioritize tasks and complete them within the set time frame.
I am a very professional, enthusiastic, motivated, and hardworking individual and I am very passionate about animals and my work. I am very fun, friendly, and easy to work with. 
I am not afraid of hard work and can handle stressful, intense situations.

I absolutely love taking care of patients and interacting with clients and providing the best care and service possible!
I have exceptional communication skills and quickly form bonds with clients and their pets!!
I have worked with most practice management software (Rx Works, EzyVet, OpenVPMS, Vision VPM, and many others), laboratory equipment, software (Idexx, Abaxis Vetscan and more), and x-ray equipment and software, and im3 dental x-ray equipment and software, ultrasound machines and other diagnostic tools.

I have been a locum for most of my career and I know my resume is very lengthy but being thrown into roles has taught me to pick up skills quickly. I have monitored HUNDREDS of anaesthetics and can place IVs, take blood and induce and intubate patients. I am used to calculating drug doses and writing surgery reports, writing patients notes, estimates & invoices, etc. And so much more...

Being a locum was fine when I was younger, but I am now looking for a place where I can "settle down" and be there for a long time. I would prefer a full-time job but would also work part-time.  I am available to start immediately.

Kind regards

Lyndall Graham, Concord & Surrounds, NSW (posted 16th February) Trainee Cert II Vet Nurse

I am seeking a Student Placement in a clinical setting.

I am a 56 years young, fit, mature, with loads of life experience, both in areas of employment and vocation. I’ve worked in teams and have been self employed, am a self starter, and a confident initiator. I’m sensible, reliable, and have exemplary communication skills.

Much of my previous work has been a crossover between people and animals; I’ve encountered people and their companion animals, been involved with ‘pets as therapy’ programs, and as a Social Worker, had some responsibility for people in unfortunate situations who needed assistance with their beloved pets.

Currently I volunteer with the Sydney Dogs and Cats Home, however, they do not cater for clinical student placements.

I am an asset to anyone considering having a student at their clinic, to keep the wonderful work of animal care and advocacy rolling.

I look forward to meeting you.

Regards,
Lyndall Graham
