I recently earned my Certificate III In Animal Care and am excited to start my career in veterinary nursing!

Since completing my placement at the RSPCA Lonsdale Shelter, I am looking for employment in a veterinary clinic to gain experience and knowledge in a private practice. I am hoping to work approximately 2-3 full days per week to allow myself time to study a Certificate IV In Veterinary Nursing.

Although I am new to the industry, I have 9+ years' experience in the workforce and many transferable skills, namely in customer service. I am warm, energetic and always look to make people laugh. I get along with everyone and often see the people I work with as friends rather than colleagues.

Jess Milthorpe, South Brisbane & Surrounds, QLD (posted 29th August) Qualified & Experienced Equine Vet Nurse

Hi there! My name is Jess, and I am currently seeking a casual or part time position with the potential to transition to full time in an equine vet clinic. I am a highly motivated Cert IV qualified veterinary nurse, graduated in 2021, and have worked about 3-4 years in small animal vet clinics. I have also completed my Cert II Animal Studies in 2018 and have done work placement at Hawkesbury Equine Veterinary Centre in Sydney.

I have been riding since I was 13 years old and have leased several amazing horses, as well as owned an off the track thoroughbred, an off the track standardbred and in my time working and riding horses I have had the opportunity of working with Andrew Inglis in Sydney with his beautiful show jumpers, for about 10 months, and worked for David Shoobridge at his beautiful stables in Victoria. Here I worked with his stallions and some broodmares and foals. I certainly learnt heaps and it was an experience I will never forget.

I have always been a passionate, hard worker, with a keen attitude to learn and a bubbly personality. My goal has always been to work with horses and other large animals, though I do absolutely love dogs.

My biggest goals and passions are to become an equine or large animal veterinary nurse, and to become a registered vet nurse. All I really want in my career is to learn as much as possible, as with pretty much everything, it is a never-ending learning curve!

I am quite flexible in my availability – I would prefer a Monday to Friday but am happy to work weekends too.

I look forward to hearing from you!
