Would you like a mix of work tailored to you?

A busy practice employing 14 vets and 30 support staff is looking for an experienced mixed practitioner to join the team!

The mix of work is somewhat negotiable with the practice seeing small animals, cattle (predominantly dairy and some beef) and small ruminants. This role will involve minimal horse work.

This long-established practice is comprised of a main hospital, nearby branch practice, and a purpose-built equine hospital. The team see a great client base of progressive dairy and beef farmers that trust the vets with the care of their animals. The team includes 100% small animal vets, 100% production animal vets, mixed vets and a registered equine specialist! Interests among current vets include canine reproduction, surgery, dairy medicine, and equine surgery.

The practice refers very little. They are able to diagnose and treat most things in-house due to quality equipment and the extensive experience of their team.

The role would be well suited to an enthusiastic team player who loves their patients and has empathy and respect for their clients.

The position is full-time or part-time, with full-time hours entailing nine days per fortnight to be worked. There will be a requirement to participate in the after-hours roster with time off in lieu. After hours is supported by a triage team, who answer and triage all calls meaning vets are only called for cases that need to be seen.

The employer is willing to assist with a work permit (sponsorship) for suitable overseas candidates. Applicants must have a Bachelor of Veterinary Science (or equivalent) and be eligible for registration as a veterinary practitioner in Australia.

The practice values their employees and provides a number of additional support services, including one week’s study leave, AVA membership, VSB registration and the Employee Assistance Program. Vets also benefit from paid parental leave, paid volunteer leave and various travel and retail discounts.

You will have access to a fully-equipped hospital which has recently undergone extensive renovation and expansion, including four consult rooms, a dedicated room for dentistry, imaging including CT, a huge surgical theatre and treatment area, plus hydrotherapy and rehabilitation. There are full equine surgery facilities and everything needed for cattle work.

This position is based in the Gippsland region, with nearby mountains, lakes and national parks. The practice is also only a 45-minute drive from the beautiful southeast coast and within easy reach of some excellent snow fields. The area is great for those with a love of food, wine, nature and wildlife!
