Primarily, you will be involved in the training, assessment, mentoring and guidance of our students. You'll do this by providing excellent student support and customer service, utilising your technical nursing knowledge and excellent ability to communicate with many different people and skill level. We deliver our courses online, so excellent computer skills are a must.
You'll also be responsible for clinical placement relationships between clinics, students and ACVN. There is also the opportunity for travel, and running workshops around the country, if desired.
We recruit both casual and permanent staff. Complete the application form to register your interest to work with us.
Staff benefits include free CE and flexibility in work hours. Our staff are paid in line with the Educational Services (Post-Secondary Education) Award 2010. Your remuneration will depend on experience and qualifications - if you're new to education, expect around $60,000-$65,000 TAP.
Many of our positions are HOME based. You'll need to have a dedicated home office setup and fast internet. If you're local, you'll be at our Melbourne office (Werribee/Hoppers Crossing area).
Essential skills and attributes for this position:
• ACM40418 Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing or higher or overseas equivalent. A Diploma of Veterinary Nursing is highly desirable.
If you hold an older Cert IV qualification, we highly recommend looking at upgrading prior (RPL is fine), as holding the qualification is necesary for compliance reasons, and much easier than demonstrating equivalence.

• At least 5 years of clinical veterinary nursing experience.
• Regularly undertake continuing education/member of veterinary associations.
• Sound working knowledge and understanding of all aspects of veterinary nursing.

• Strong desire to teach and foster learning in others
A working with children's check will be required prior to commencing employment.
One of the keys to our success has been finding the right people - achievers who share the same vision and can-do attitude. Our staff like to challenge the norm and seek continual improvement of not only our training, but the veterinary nursing profession.
