Grantham Street Veterinary Clinic, Wembley WA (posted 24th May)

Grantham Logo

Experienced Veterinary Nurse Required – Perth WA

Due to our increasing work load, our busy, privately owned small animal practice is looking for an experience veterinary nurse to join our team.

Our practice is a recently renovated, 3-4 vet practice with great facilities. We put a lot of time into choosing the right employees and this has paid off by having loyal staff. Over 60% of our staff have been with us for over 4 years (with most of our nurses leaving to further their education, move interstate, or go into specialty veterinary nursing). 

In what is often a very difficult work environment, we work hard to ensure our staff enjoy coming to work. We offer flexible work hours, in clinic learning support as well as personal support, we take time to have fun at work, we share baked goods, organise outside social events and reward our staff with above award pay rates. Importantly, we listen to staff, their wishes, any concerns along with ideas on how to make ours a wonderful work environment. We have a dedicated practice manager (who isn’t the business owner or a senior nurse), whose underlying philosophy is “we spend too much time at work not to make it enjoyable”.

What are we looking for?  A qualified nurse with at least 2 years’ experience, although we would consider the right person with less experience. We need some-one who enjoys other people , has the compassion and empathy to offer top quality patient and client care and is looking for a vibrant, fun work environment.

If you are still reading this and would love to give it a go, please send your CV to manager@petwellness.com.au.  All applications will be treated in confidence.

WAVES is committed to finding the right team to staff our hospital over the long term. We are looking for energetic, enthusiastic, and dedicated nurses who understand that veterinary nursing isn’t a 9-5 job, are genuinely interested in surgical veterinary procedures and are willing to consistently provide quality patient care in a sometimes-hectic environment. You need to have a Certificate IV in veterinary nursing or equivalent and must have at least 2 years of experience in general practice. Previous experience in a referral hospital would be a big advantage however your approach is the most important thing to us.

To make sure the hospital keeps running smoothly, you will need to keep the hospital clean, walk dogs to let them stretch their legs and have a sniff, stock shelves, keep the laundry moving and cuddle patients as required.

Surgical veterinary nursing is not for everyone. To take on this job you need emotional resilience, staying power, a belief that miracles are possible (they are), and a healthy dose of pragmatism. However, the rewards can be amazing! You will love the team and get a real buzz from working with us.

We take recruitment very seriously because we know it is important to get the right people and it is also important that you are going to like working with us. We want to build up a team of people who will stay for years, be part of the WAVES family, and grow with us.

If you think that you may be the person we are looking for please email a cover letter and your CV attention to Cathy at wavets@bigpond.com. We are looking forward to hearing from you.
