The Berwick Village Vet, South-East Melbourne (posted 21st June)

the berwick village vet logo

Mixed Role Senior nurse, Administration/Practice manager

P/T or F/T and I will consider splitting these roles (Clinical nursing or Admin focused) The Berwick Village Vet is growing and we need to transition into a clinic with more direction. For those interested a role is now available for a senior nurse with an interest in administration or practice management. We do need some clinical nursing shifts (rostered about 15 hours per week) and some Admin/managerial shifts (flexible for the most part but likely 15 plus hours per week).

For the clinical nursing we would like an experienced nurse, who is as comfortable in the surgery as they are on reception. We need a friendly demeanour with at least some sense of humour! The boss likes to crack himself up with dad jokes…

The admin/manager role would be divided into 3 outcomes;

Stability:

Maintaining and improving on what makes us a happy clinic. Rostering, HR, OHS are the behind the scenes focus. Team unity and cohesion, training and personal development are the more personalized areas that will need continued focus.

Improvement:

Moving on from Stability we want assistance with improvements to the clinic building, processes, procedures and protocols for both clinical performance, and business, financial and non-clinical performance.

Growth:

Making sure we continue to grow, with marketing and advertising, facebook, newsletter, signage, and other ways to spread the word. We have a marketing company we work with, but we need more from our end to maximise this.

So what do we need? A Certificate IV is an advantage. It is not crucial and experience will have as much weight as a Cert IV. Minimum 3 years nursing experience please. Maturity and life experience will be essential for this role. Any prior experience in managerial or administrative roles will be an advantage. So if this sounds like something you’d be interested in please contact us via email or on 9707 3855. I’m happy to chat about the role. If you’d like to apply please send in your application to office@berwickvillagevet.com.au

Catching up with our longstanding team (of 5 members having been with us over 8 years) and new colleagues that have joined along the way. The variety in the day with the motto, “if you can get it here, then we can see it”, means that you might be hanging on to a huge Great Dane one minute and tickling a turtle the next.

We love that our clients think of US on RUOK Day and often bring in baked goodies and chocolates. We know we are appreciated for the great good that we do in educating our clients to provide the best of care that they can manage, without judgement. We love being there at the start and we are not afraid to cry with them at the end of their pets journey. But most of all we love when they come in with their next much loved pet, entrusting us again.

WE LOVE COMING TO WORK AND DOING OUR BEST EVERY DAY!
