Job Description:

Opportunity in Paradise – Experienced Vet Nurse or Vet Tech
 
A full time Qualified Nurse is required for a Leadership Role in our ASAV Accredited Hospital of Excellence on the Gold Coast.
 
Gold Coast Vet Surgery is expanding and we need an amazing experienced vet nurse or vet tech to join our friendly, dynamic team to support our growing team of vets. We are a medium sized 4 vet, family owned and operated vet clinic that focuses on providing excellent personal service to our clients. At the same time we pride ourselves in offering high quality care in a compassionate manner. 
 
If you enjoy making a difference in people’s experience at the vet, and are proud to provide exceptional customer service as part of a fun team then this is the position for you. Our practice attracts clients who expect and appreciate caring and thorough nursing care. If you are looking for job satisfaction, like to be involved in working up cases and enjoy developing a personal relationship with your clients then you will flourish in our “family”.
 
As well as good communication skills and the desire to provide outstanding customer service and patient care, the successful applicant will need to be able to multi-task and work as part of a healthcare team. However, the ability to work well independently is also important. In particular we are looking for a nurse who is enthusiastic, motivated and a problem solver. The successful applicant will be expected to support our Head Nurse and take on a leadership role to our more junior nurses when our Head Nurse will be on Maternity Leave next year. Exceptional communication and strong interpersonal skills are also desired.
 
Our minimum requirements are a BVetTech or a Certificate IV Vet Nursing Qualification (or equivalent) and a minimum of 4 years’ experience in veterinary nursing. A good knowledge of veterinary products and procedures is expected.
 
As we work in a team based approach our nurses have a large responsibility for the patient care and are expected to use their nursing skills extensively. All our nurses routinely undertake blood sampling, IV catheter placement, dental scaling & polishing, lab work, radiology, and inpatient treatment so the ability to carry out these tasks competently is required. We have a full time Customer Care Team so reception duties for the nurses are limited.
 
Gold Coast Vet Surgery is located in Broadbeach, just south of Surfers Paradise. We are a 4 Vet, 100% small animal practice and are well equipped with Digital X-Rays, Ultrasound, full Idexx Lab (incl Catalyst Biochem, LaserCyte CBC + Sedivue Urinalysis) an IM3 Elite Dental Unit and CR7 Dental X-rays Dental Unit. We are the only ASAV Accredited Hospital of Excellence on the Gold Coast – anyone can claim that they are well equipped or work to a high standard, but this is your independent assurance of our quality and standards.
 
We particularly enjoy working up cases to achieve the best possible outcomes for our patients and their owners. We have an interesting and varied surgical load, including visiting specialist surgeons. No after hours work is required as after hours cases are referred to an excellent emergency clinic. This is a permanent, full time position, with above award pay and conditions according to experience.
 
The lovely Gold Coast lifestyle, gorgeous beaches and the natural beauty of the Hinterland are thrown in as a bonus! We are also within striking distance of Brisbane and are close to two international airports.
 
If you wish to seize this rare opportunity to become a core member of staff as our practice grows, please contact our Practice Manager, Claire Fleming at manager@goldcoastvet.com.au.  Absolute confidentiality is assured.
