Veterinary Nurse - Part Time or Full Time

WE ARE HIRING

Seaton & Findon Vets are looking for a professional, passionate and experienced Cert 4 in Veterinary Nursing or equivalent, to join our team on a flexible, permanent basis.

Due to us having a few trainees and interns on the team already, we are looking for a Vet Nurse who is able to hit the ground running.

The position available has flexible hours – ideally 50-76/fortnight.

We pride ourselves on providing the highest standards in nursing care, to both the patient and client.

If you are motivated, caring, energetic and ready to learn new skills, there is an opportunity for you to join our fantastic team of bubbly personalities!

Nursing duties involve all aspects of the veterinary practice, including: reception, surgical nursing, hospitalization, radiography, ultrasonography, pathology and Puppy School if you're interested (not required if you're not interested).

We see a mix of different companion animals, including exotic and pocket pets, so it is a great opportunity for you to expand your nursing skills and learning!

We have a high surgery load and high standards, so experience in monitoring anaesthetics for high-risk patients, confidence with surgical nursing, ability to multi-task and strong passion for patient care is a must.

We use RxWorks (practice management software), SmartFlow (inpatient software) and Deputy (rostering software). Experience with using any of these is favourable, though not a prerequisite.

Opening hours:

Monday - Friday: 8am to 7pm
Saturday: 8am to 4pm
Sunday: CLOSED
CLOSED PUBLIC HOLIDAYS

The roster is shared over a six-day period so you will need to be flexible for weekends and able to work both independently, and as part of a team.

We are extraordinarily proud of our work culture. The first thing that people hear when stepping into the practice is usually laughter!

You can look forward to:

A supportive, welcoming team environment

Vets and nurses working synergistically

We actively acknowledge, avoid and address burn-out and take the mental health of our staff incredibly seriously

No on-call, overnight or public holiday work

Flexibility and a work-life balance

Management who actually care about the people, not the sales (NO up-selling or sales KPI’s to worry about!)

The position vacant has an immediate start date and all employees are subject to a 3 month induction period. If this role sounds like the right fit for you, and you would like to become part of the Seaton and Findon Surgery team, please send your application through email provided below.

You are also welcome to call the practice to discuss the position available.

All enquiries are treated with confidentiality.
