We need another qualified veterinary nurse to help keep all our moaning veterinarians whipped into shape! And of course to help us manage our lively surgical load and keep things steaming along.
You need to have an interest in and solid experience with anaesthetics (and at the very least a very healthy respect for the subject), as we take anaesthesia and patient safety very seriously, striving always to get things absolutely right. This means you will have lots of lovely electronic machines and other bits and pieces to play with, but it also means that the position is not without pressure ~ there is a high expectation for quality of work and active thinking.
Have we put you off? No? Not yet? OK, let's try again. :-)
We have a very technologically advanced clinic, so you will need to be ready to learn and to become proficient with all our techy toys, including, of course, computers and our practice management software, but also our PACS system for all our digital imaging (xray, ultrasound, dental xray, endoscopy), our digital hospital and anaesthetic sheets (we are pretty much entirely paperless!), and all the other various pieces of equipment we utilise every day during our diagnostic and treatment processes.
And our patients? Oh yes... of course... our patients! Well, at the end of the day they are the most important part of what we do and we expect you to have compassionate focus for them at all times ~ you truly must be a nurse at heart. The pet owners are relevant too (yes, we know... sigh), so excellent, confident communication skills (beginning with English-language proficiency but extending to that "x-factor" when it comes to talking to people and that built-in desire you will have to make sure important things are well understood) are all also a big part of the job requirement and of working at DKC.
If, after reading all this, you're still up for it and are genuinely ready for some hard, invigorating work and learning, get in touch.
