Veterinary Nurse – Emergency and Critical Care

Work Type:


Job Description:

We are seeking permanent part time OR casual emergency veterinary nurses to join our team on the wonderful Gold Coast.

Our company is growing, and we want you!

Animal Emergency Service (AES) are a trusted leader in Emergency and Critical Care (ECC) for small animals and our vision is to provide a home for veterinary professionals to do and be their best. We’re here to help you transition from your current job to a satisfying career where you have the chance to live the lifestyle you have always wanted.

The Role

We are looking for experienced emergency and critical care veterinary nurses who thrive in a hands-on, dynamic environment. You are provided on the job and external training to help elevate your clinical nursing skills and you’re surrounded by an experienced team who will support you no matter the issue. You are trusted by our veterinarians to provide hands-on support for our patients and utilise your full nursing potential. We also have a dedicated Client Care team – this means you have more time to focus on saving lives, and less client-facing!

If you’re nervous about moving into emergency, don’t be!

  • You will be offered significant support and training from our experienced team of nurses before, during and after your shifts.
  • We offer many different training avenues to help ensure you feel supported from the very beginning and have even created our own ‘AES Elevate Emergency Nursing Program’, an accredited course run through our sister company, Improve International, designed to support nurses through the transition to emergency.
  • We pride ourselves on the supportive and collaborative environment we have created in our team.
  • We have trained Mental Health First Aid Officers at the clinic and an Employee Assistance Program ready for any team or close family members requiring support on a range of matters. Catch-ups and social events are also an important aspect of team building within AES and we strive to ensure you have a balance between your personal and work commitments.

The Location

Our practice is located in the heart of the Gold Coast, where you will find amazing beaches, spectacular hiking tracks, a vibrant social scene and lots of summer rays! We are equipped with everything you need to provide quality, emergency care for our patients including blood gas analysis, digital X-Ray, ultrasound and endoscopy. These facilities mean we can provide world class treatment and deliver quality results for our clients and patients.
