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.

What are we looking for?
The ideal candidate will have excellent communication, listening and customer service skills, as well as extensive knowledge of animal health. We seek someone whose professional values align with those of the team.

We will train the right candidate for the role.

To be a successful candidate you need to hold a certificate IV in veterinary nursing and be registered with the Veterinary Practice Board of WA. The successful candidate will need flexibility to adapt to our 6 week roster, as no two days are exactly the same. We are well staffed, so you will have plenty of support from the team around you. 

So, if you are interested in becoming part of a fun and exciting team who are dedicated to animal welfare, then we want to hear from you!
