Yanchep Veterinary Hospital, North of Perth WA (posted 28th November)

Yanchep Veterinary Hospital Logo

Experienced Veterinary Nurse – Part-time, 3 days per week and 1 in 3 Saturday mornings

Yanchep Vet is located only 35 minutes North of Perth CBD. Our team consists of highly talented and enthusiastic nurses and vets. We provide a busy and challenging work environment. Your nursing skills will be fully utilised, and you’ll have the opportunity to really develop the skills you learned along the way.

If you want to:

Spend your days nursing – placing catheters, taking bloods, assessing and triaging emergencies, monitoring anaesthesia, taking dental xrays and developing your nursing skills - we would love to welcome you to our team. Our vets rely on a strong nursing team – you’ll be focussed on patient care and medicine and surgery.

Our hospital has all the tools and toys you need to do your job, and a few lovely extras. We have all the usual: Ultrasound, Digital xrays, Dental xrays, Dental suite, Anitek monitors, Darvall air warmers and Anaesthesia air warmers, Smartflow electronic white board, multiple IV pumps, Idexx lab in house, and a beautiful clean work environment. Our hospital is spacious and designed for you to be able to do your job in a really nice environment.

We do a lot of routine surgeries each day and we also have emergencies pretty much every day. Our case load is incredibly varied - we see snake bites, a lot of wildlife, and lots of routine things as well. Our vets have special interest in Dentistry and Surgery. We have visiting specialist surgeons for complex orthopaedic work as well as ophthalmology surgery.

As the only vet hospital in our area we probably see more than our fair share of emergencies and trauma in our patients. This means that applicants who may have been bored by the day to day routine in many city practices will thrive working with our cases. You really do get to use all of your nursing skills here at our hospital.

Some reception work but it is shared evenly amongst the nursing team, there is no after hours and Sundays and one in three Saturdays. We pay above the award and we are open to negotiate pay rates dependant on the experience you bring to the role.

We use RX works as our software and outsource most of our reminders etc. This allows us to concentrate on our veterinary duties.

If you feel you have the skills or can develop the skills to work in a fast paced and varied hospital, please send us your resume.

We would love to hear from you.

Please send a cover letter and resume to Dr Sam:

Experienced Veterinary Nurse Required - Full Time or Part Time

Looking for a change, but haven’t found the right position? Feel that you need to expand your experience and are looking for practice to develop your nursing skills?

We are looking for an experienced PT/FT nurse to fill maternity leave cover and extended leave. The position will be for a set contract period, but there is a very good chance that there will be an ongoing position.

So, why would you leave a current job to go to a new position? The answer is simple - because we offer a great work environment and our staff love coming to work. Our practice is a small animal 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. 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 like to empower our staff to develop their skills so-as to continue to be engaged in their work. 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 1 years experience who has read the above and thought – YES! that’s the sort of practice I want to work in. We need some-one who enjoys other people, is prepared to share the workload across all the nursing duties, and has the compassion and empathy to offer top quality patient and client care.

If you are still reading this and would love to give it a go, then now is the time to back yourself and send your CV to:

All applications will be treated in confidence.
