Is making a difference to the lives of companion animal owners and farmers something you are passionate about?

Would you like to make the most of living in one of Australia’s highly prized tourist destinations?

Would you like to work in a modern rural clinic with the opportunity to work with a large and exciting range of species?

Does the idea of working with a small and supportive team who provides the time and mentoring to develop new skills appeal to you?

Kangaroo Island Veterinary Clinic is searching for an experienced veterinary nurse.  The right person will possess a Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing but people with a Certificate II in Animal Studies with relevant experience and enthusiasm will also be considered!  The right person will have experience with animal handling and husbandry, as well as medical and surgical nursing.  The right person would also have a sound foundation in providing advice and support to companion animal owners.  Personal and/or professional experience with horses and production animals is not mandatory but an absolute plus!

Your roles within the business would include:-

The Kangaroo Island Veterinary Clinic has been established for 38 years.  It is a true rural mixed practice that sees approximately 50% small animal and wildlife, 30% sheep, 15% cattle and 5% equine work.  The newly expanded purpose-built clinic accommodates small and large animal consults, including mobile services.  It also features a large farm animal retail section for the provision of products backed by high quality, specific advice from qualified staff with a thorough understanding of animal and farming systems.  The small animal facilities are continually expanding and upgrading and include fully computerised PMS, digital x-ray, ultrasound machines, a full surgical suite and a full in-house laboratory.

The clinic is located just 3km from Kingscote, the major town servicing the Island. You won’t be missing anything on this Island – the substantial tourism and agriculture sectors support an array of amenities locally, including various art and sporting facilities and clubs, a well equipped hospital, horse riding groups and several schools and supermarkets. It is only a short 20 minute flight to the capital city of South Australia, Adelaide. The Island is a remarkable place that provides a unique lifestyle unlike anywhere else. A lot of our team members have relocated to Kangaroo Island to enjoy what it offers – an incredible unspoilt natural environment with wide expanses of beaches and bush, authentic wildlife experiences, premium local food and wine, art inspired by peaceful, wild surrounds and the opportunity for agricultural ventures. 

The successful applicant must be a team player as you'll be joining our tight-knit team of 5 vets and 13 support staff.  A large part of this role involves interacting with our loyal and valued clients, therefore you must also be a people person with great enthusiasm and a good sense of humour!  Hours and remuneration for the right candidate are negotiable depending on experience and will be above the award.  As mentioned previously, experience is a must but we believe attitude is everything and skills can be developed and polished through mentorship and training - so if you feel you have the right strengths to offer please apply!

Our team is our greatest asset so we make it a priority to find the right people. We want everyone to have fun, love their job and have the time to enjoy their wonderful surroundings outside of work. If you feel passionate about this role and excited to move to Kangaroo Island, then please don’t hesitate to email your written application and resume!

We have a new and exciting opportunity for a skilled and motivated individual with a passion for delivering the highest standards of large animal service and care. The University of Adelaide’s Veterinary Teaching Hospital (VTH) is looking for a Lead Veterinary Nurse to take charge of its Large Animal nursing staff.

The Hospital offers a high-quality equine and mixed practice service to the general public and referring veterinarians. This includes first opinion services (both onsite and ambulatory), specialist care and a 24-hour emergency service. The Hospital also provides a clinical training environment for final year veterinary and veterinary technology students working under the close supervision of experienced veterinary surgeons, nurses and support staff.

The Veterinary Nurse Team Lead is a newly created position which involves both clinical nursing and leadership duties. As the Veterinary Nurse Team Lead, you will work closely with the Hospital Manager to co-ordinate the smooth running of the clinical nursing team.

You will be responsible for the organisation and scheduling of daily operations; team support and mentoring; and, in association with the Hospital Manager, identifying staff development needs.  In addition to providing excellent nursing care of equine and production animals, you will be responsible for coaching and mentoring client relations, nurses and technical staff members in their duties. You will also assist the Hospital Manager in reviewing and upgrading our hospital operating procedures and in co-ordinating skills development to ensure best practice service provision.

As part of the VTH, both our Large and Small Animal Hospitals are accredited by the Veterinary Surgeons Board of South Australia. As you would expect from a board-accredited hospital, our facilities and equipment are of the highest standard, with a spacious, modern, purpose-built space. Our hospital is supported by the Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory, which is located within the same building. This is often invaluable for fast turnaround of clinical pathology reports and direct contact with pathologists for case discussion.

The VTH is located on the University of Adelaide’s Roseworthy Campus, and is surrounded by great lifestyle opportunities. We are situated on the doorstep of the Barossa Valley, an internationally renowned wine region and a delightful part of the world. We have easy access to beaches, sporting activities, benchmark schools and shopping facilities. There is easy access to the city and its many attractions. Adelaide is known as a cultural centre, with its hugely successful Festival of the Arts, and as a sports-mad destination.

Desirable Attributes:

The successful candidate will have Certificate IV Veterinary Nursing or Bachelor of Veterinary Technology with Equine/Large animal focus is highly desirable; or completion of a relevant certificate or combination of relevant experience and/or education/training.
