Due to the continued unprecedented growth of our business we are seeking a new ECC nurse to join our team.
Animal Referral Centre (ARC) is a busy, growing, private small animal specialist/emergency practice established in 2016. We are independently owned and operated and have specialists in small animal surgery, diagnostic imaging and internal medicine, as well as a referral Cardiology service. We also have a hydrotherapy service.
Our after hours caseload is varied and interesting, consisting of a mixture of primary access and referral cases from practices in Auckland and beyond. A high proportion of our clients have pet insurance.
We have all the equipment you would expect in a modern veterinary hospital including full in-house laboratory suite with Radiometer, multiparameter patient monitors, digital radiography, ultrasound, endoscopy, mechanical ventilation, on-site CT, and dedicated cat and dog receptions, consulting rooms and wards. We have a receptionist on evenings and weekends.
Our successful candidate must have a positive attitude as well as a passion for emergency and critical care (ECC). A veterinary nursing qualification and least 2 years experience as a veterinary nurse is required. Previous emergency nursing experience is an advantage, but not essential.
Why work for ARC?
· Emergency and critical care is a challenging and rewarding field, no two shifts are the same and you will gain experience with a wide variety of cases.
· You will have the opportunity to provide outstanding patient care and use your nursing skills – we expect our nurses to perform triage, place IV catheters, take blood samples, take radiographs, etc.
· We have a cohesive, friendly work environment and encourage collaboration between our specialist and emergency teams.
· Competitive remuneration is offered as well as a CPD allowance and an employee assistance programme.
