Join Anexa Veterinary Services in a Vet Nurse role as part of our Morrinsville team. This is a varied role in which you will be an important part in helping the day to day running of the clinic, alongside the companion animal team.
Anexa Veterinary Services has 12 veterinary clinics across the Waikato and Hauraki Plains providing services to both companion animals and farming clients. Each of our clinics are unique but at Anexa we are one team.
About the clinic
Our Morrinsville clinic is committed to growing their companion animal business and delivering the best service to clients and their beloved pets. It is a fast-paced clinic where no two days are the same. It is imperative that you are a team player and love getting stuck in to get the job done.
It is a mixed practice with a companion animal team currently consisting of 1-2 veterinarians (day-dependent) and 2 nurses.
The clinic is equipped with:
Idexx haematology and biochemistry in-house blood machines
Internal laboratory with dedicated lab technicians and microbiologists
Anaesthetic monitoring equipment including ECG, pulse oximetry, apnoea alert, temperature probe and blood pressure measurement
Digital x-rays and ultrasound
Two consulting rooms, a large treatment room and a separate sterile surgery room
Separate kennel room, plus separate isolation room
About the role
This is an exciting opportunity to support the Companion Animal Team Leader and Senior Nurse in the day to day running of the clinic and to have significant input in creating an efficient service for pets, clients, and our vets.
You will be the first port of call for our companion animal vets and will be integral to managing client relationships. Surgical support, anaesthesia, patient monitoring and treatment, admitting and discharging pets and communicating with clients will be the main priorities of this role. Nurse consults e.g. post-operative checks, dental checks etc are also an important aspect that we would like to grow.
There are significant development opportunities available in this role. You will play a valuable part in developing the breadth and efficiency of our day to day companion animal services while being well-supported with ongoing clinical CPD (both internal and external). Anexa recognises the importance of supporting our nurses to continually grow their clinical knowledge and skill set.
You will be a qualified and experienced Vet Nurse. Team leadership experience is preferable but not essential. You will be dedicated to providing the best care and service to all clients and their pets. You will be computer literate and have excellent written and verbal skills.
You will thrive in a busy environment, have great rapport with clients and their pets and pride yourself in fostering positive relationships with all our valued Morrinsville clients. The ideal candidate will always be looking to drive the day forward in an efficient manner; aiming to be one step ahead of the veterinarian, showing initiative and pre-empting their requirements.
The words efficient, driven, and proactive describe your work ethic. You aim to provide a high level of care and service to companion animals that not only meets, but regularly exceeds, our clients’ expectations.
