Scott Dickeson, North Sydney NSW (posted 16th March) Junior Vet Nurse

Hello there, my name is Scott Dickeson, and I am looking to become the best vet nurse I can be. I completed my Cert IV in 2019, and I've been trying to get more experience since then. I'm ideally looking for part-time or full-time permanent work as a vet nurse, but am more than happy to start off with any position in a vet clinic in order to build up my skills and confidence.

During my studies, I learned all the basics of vet nursing both in the classroom and in my placement clinic, as well as during my times under paid employment, including:

I have access to my own transport, so I can travel where I need to (within reasonable limits) for work, and have prior experience in customer service and cash handling. I'm a quick learner when I'm involved, and I'm always eager to better myself in any way I can so that I can function the best I'm able to.

In terms of availability, I am free to work any day of the week, any time of the day, including weekend work if that's required of me. If I'm asked to work past my rostered hours, I'd be more than willing to stay back longer if the situation is hectic, or if I feel I can benefit from extra time spent learning and helping.

If you feel you would want me as part of your team, you would be gaining a team member who empathises with people and animals all the time, and can understand many perspectives to better handle problems. In addition, you'd be taking on someone who loves telling terrible jokes to anyone who wants to hear them, and who isn't afraid to communicate with others if I have any issues.

If you want to contact me further for more information, or to have me send my CV to you, please don't hesitate to contact me at the below email or phone number; I'd be happy to chat further and discuss any positions you may have for me.

Thank you so much for your consideration, and I hope to hear from you, and possibly work with you, later.

Kind regards,
Scott Dickeson

Emilie Servage, Cairns QLD (posted 13th February) Overseas Qualified Zoo Keeper seeking Vet Nurse position

My name is Emilie, I am a French girl passionate by animals!

I have been traveling for 5 years in Australia. In my home country I was Zoo Keeper specialized in Birds. I have been volunteering in many places working with Australian Wildlife all around the country, and I was fascinated every time I was working in collaboration with the Vet. It is so interesting! That's why, I would like to switch my career into Vet Nursing.I would like to enrol a Vet course, (cert III and IV) at the end of the year in TAFE Gold Coast. But, meanwhile, I am already looking for a job that will give me the opportunity to start in my new career.

I live actually in Cairns and I ideally would love to stay here, it is so beautiful, but I want to work in my passion job. I am keen to go anywhere as long as I can have a training provided. I am super keen to learn. I have some experience already, mainly with wildlife (3 years). So I know how to handle any bird, little mammals and I have had to help my colleagues in other sectors too like baby big cats, wolves, possums, reptiles, porcupines, meerkats...

I worked in a wildlife rescue center in France, we rescued mainly squirrel, hedgehog and many birds. And I did 3 seasons at the Zoo where I was working at the birds husbandry taking care of the birds from incubation in the egg until the reach adult size. In Australia, I have worked with sea turtles, koalas, wallabies, echidnas and of course many birds again! And I have worked in a dogs and cats shelter in Darwin named PAWS. I was volunteer at Territory Wildlife Park in the same time. In New Zealand in 2018, I have volunteered in birdlife park, I could be part to a Kiwi Conservation Program and helped to raise 5 kiwi chicks! How proud and special!

I did study Sales and Customer Relation Services before to become a Zoo Keeper in France and I have work 8 years in that so I can say that I have a great customer service sense, a great attitude, a positive mindset and always a big smile. I am reliable, energetic and efficient. I know how to handle stress, and work in a fast paced environment.

I am so excited to read from you and be part of a good team where I can commit, share passion and grow with.
