Dr Perri Rea, BVSc
Working at CVES means working with a team of talented, kind, and compassionate people. I am consistently supported by those around me, whilst still maintaining autonomy within my work.
We are constantly exposed to a variety of interesting and complex veterinary challenges, which allows me to develop my skills. The opportunities that I have access to at CVES are unique and endlessly educational; it’s a workplace I’m very glad to have found!
Dr Paul Chong, BVSc (Hons)
Joining CVES has been the best decision I have made in starting my veterinary career. I look forward to coming to work every shift knowing that I have an animal-loving, compassionate and supportive team beside me. Every case I face stimulates growth of my knowledge, and I am always learning new and different ways a case can be approached. Although some days can be challenging, the caring staff never fail to check in on each other to ensure that our personal health and well-being are taken care of too. Not a day goes by that I’ll ever not love working at CVES.
Claire De Candia, Business Manager
I love working at CVES. I haven’t worked at a more supportive and inclusive workplace. We genuinely care about the wellbeing of all our staff, as well as every patient that presents to the clinic.
We want all staff to feel supported and want them to achieve their goals, so we have plenty of training opportunities available. I started off as part of the reception team, moved into Reception Manager position and after completing some studies I took on the Business Manager role, so CVES invests in our people to encourage us to achieve our goals whatever they may be.
Skye De Ath, Operations Manager
CVES is an amazing, inclusive and supportive workplace. I’ve never worked in a clinic that was so dedicated to helping staff achieve their goals by providing training and supporting them in their growth, On top of that is the positive floor culture and atmosphere in the clinic, Every shift is fun and exciting.
Hayley Bryant, Emergency Nurse
Working with CVES has been nothing short of a miracle for me.
The team here has helped me grow and become more confident in myself and my skills. Everyone who works here is extremely knowledgeable and kind, and always willing to reassure, support, and most important teach each other. Whilst emergency may seem daunting to some, CVES has created an environment in which everyone is taken care of – staff, clients and patients. No one is ever left behind.
Every day is a new day, bringing new unique cases and patients in.
Also, our management team is always very supportive and provides staff with many opportunities for ongoing education. There are always opportunities for staff to become more experienced in the most diverse fields of modern veterinary science. Constant professional development and amazing career possibilities are things that make me very grateful to be a part of CVES team.
Jess Griffiths, Emergency receptionist and nurse
Unlike a lot of jobs nearly everyone in the vet industry is here because they want to. It’s not like a 9-5 that you might do for a couple of months to make money or build experience, you are here because you genuinely care, and you bring you heart and soul to work with you every day. Being here to help clients and their pets means so much. Emergency medicine is fast paced, stressful but so rewarding.
You are forced to think and learn on your feet so you can provide the best possible care to any patient that comes in. From reception taking that first worried call all the way through to our vets deciding on the best course of treatment. The team we have here at CVES is amazing and we rely so heavily on each other and what we bring to the team to get us through. I myself am a part of both the reception and nursing team. I am currently training to become a qualified Vet nurse and move away from admin into more hands-on patient care.
Anyone who has anything to do with the medical industry knows how full on and taxing it can be but those times when you pause for a moment to have a cuddle, find an extra blankie or warm up patient’s dinner it reminds you why your here and these small things matter even if never noticed.
Lesia Matvieieva, Reception Coordinator
I will not be too dramatic if I say that joining the CVES team has changed my life as it is an absolute truth. I have dived into the new amazing world of emergency medicine and feel like this is the place I have been looking for such a long time. Support, sincerity and the care the all the team show, makes me see them more like friends and family, rather than just colleagues. We are always working together to get through any challenges. Spirit of unity and integration is always at the highest level at CVES. At the same time, this is a place that has gathered together such an amazing diversity of people who just happen to “click” together so well.
Our management team always encourages us to keep professionally developing and constantly provides the most interesting opportunities to do so.
There is something at CVES that words cannot simply express enough. Even though emergency can be stressful each shift here brings so much pleasure.
Teri Ross - Emergency Nurse
Joining the team at CVES has been such a wonderful step in my career. Everyone I’ve met has been so supportive and caring; it’s clear that management has worked hard to cultivate a positive floor culture. Every day at work is different which makes it both challenging and exciting.
Nurses are very involved with the patients here and we are given constant chances to grow our skillset. Along with opportunities to further our education, I can easily say I’ve become a better nurse since working here. It’s a big leap moving from GP to ECC, but I couldn’t imagine a better workplace to do it with!
