Virginia Bekker, Sunbury VIC (posted 24th October) Trainee Vet Nurse

Hi, my name is Virginia Bekker and I am interested in finding either Part-time employment or a voluntary clinic placement. I live in Sunbury, Victoria and wish to find something within a reasonable travelling distance.

I was previously a Veterinary Nurse for 7 years, which I left in October 2016, while studying Cert IV Veterinary Nursing. I have been out of the Veterinary industry for the last 6 years but have decided to go back and get my Cert IV qualification and return to the job that I love most and miss.

I returned to mostly online study in mid 2020, during Covid, through Melbourne Polytechnics. Because of the lockdown's and Covid restrictions, I struggled with placements, so I am looking to continue my education and finish my qualification next year. To be able to do this, I am again looking for either a voluntary placement or a paid position in a veterinary clinic, so that I can learn, perform and have mandatory practical skills signed off. I expect to complete my course by mid 2023. I would then love to either stay on as an employee with that clinic or find part-time employment elsewhere.

I am an experienced mature aged person, who has old-school morals and values and likes to live life with a glass-half-full approach. I'm patient, friendly, a team player, I have the ability to work independently and happy to roll up my sleeves and do whatever needs to be done around the clinic. I love to have a laugh, but also know when it's appropriate or not. I don't have any issues with taking direction and I love to learn new skills.

My availability is negotiable, but I am only looking for part-time hours at this stage, with a possibility of extending them in the future. I can provide a Resume upon request.

Thank you for taking the time to read my advert. Please find my contact details below and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Best Regards,

Virginia Bekker
