The Wild Vet Animal Hospital, Glebe, Inner West Sydney (posted 15th August)

the wild vet logo

Full-Time Experienced Veterinary Nurse

About Us

The Wild Vet is an exotics and small animal hospital based in Glebe, just across the road from the beautiful Blackwattle Bay foreshore walk. We see an enormous variety of domestic pets, from cats and dogs to rabbits, parrots, pythons, fish, and dragons. With frequent wildlife care on top of our routine consults and cases, no two days are the same.

The Wild Vet is not your average vet hospital. If you’re looking to be a part of a team that cares for possums, echidnas, lorikeets, and bin chickens as much as the frequent flier Frenchie, you’re in the right place! We are looking for a nurse to be a part of our team that is environmentally focused, strives to provide gold standards of care for all patients, has a high attention to detail, and is friendly and inclusive.

We are also proud to have a surrender over euthanasia policy. We have successfully treated and rehomed close to 100 pets since opening 3 years ago.

We know the “exotics” part of this can be daunting if you don’t have much experience outside of dog and cat nursing, but we strongly encourage nurses with dog/cat-only experience to apply! If you have an interest in exotics and are keen to learn, a lot of the new skills you’ll need can be trained on the job.

About The Role

You will be joining our team as a permanent full-time nurse working a 40 hour week inclusive of paid 30-minute lunch breaks across four days. 1 in 6 Saturday shifts are your only weekend work too. No after hours, Sundays or public holidays either. This role will be focused on gold standards of patient care, and you will be working in a team that has a varied caseload, with a strong emphasis on wildlife care and treatment.

About You

You are *that* nurse.

You know, the one that goes the extra mile for their patients, and cares about every single one as if they were their own pet. You’ve got your Cert IV in nursing along with (ideally) at least two years’ experience under your belt, and you’re looking for a clinic that prioritises the care of every animal that walks/slithers/bounds through the door. You may not have a heap of experience with exotics, but it’s something that interests and excites you! You want to find a team that has a great sense of humour, gets along with one another, and delivers awesome patient care every day of the week.

You’ve worked with EzyVet before (or are keen to learn the ropes), and your client communication is top notch, and you’re comfortable giving hospital and surgical updates to pet parents. You have a bright personality and a smile on your face even when the day gets a bit hectic. You prioritise excellent customer service, and work efficiently in a team as well as showing initiative when working alone.

Job Perks

The key roles and responsibilities for this role include:

This amazing role is ready to fill immediately so we can have as much handover as possible, but we are happy to be patient for the perfect candidate. Salary will be commensurate with experience. And if part time is more your vibe, give us a call and have a chat.

If this sounds like your dream role, send your CV and a cover letter to our practice manager, Liz Garling at:
