Are you a new graduate vet eager to launch your career in a supportive and dynamic environment? Look no further!

A fantastic opportunity is available at a well-established, family-owned practice just 2 hours from Melbourne.

This progressive and friendly team of 5 vets and 8 support staff is excited to welcome a new graduate to their practice.

They are willing and able to provide the support every graduate needs with longer consult times, experienced vets scrubbing into surgery and attending large animal call outs with you, and a senior vet acting as your nurse when you first begin after hours work. Of course,you will also receive support and encouragement to step outside your comfort zone and take on new challenges as you are ready! This practice understands the importance of getting your career off to a great start.

They are dedicated to providing gold-standard patient care and value professional growth and development.

Work-life balance is also a priority here, with the practice partnering with the Lincoln Institute to foster staff well-being through a positive workplace culture and strong leadership.

The practice handles a diverse caseload: 60% small animals and 40% large animals, including beef, sheep, equine, and the occasional alpaca. With no dairy work, you can say goodbye to late nights and early mornings!

Clinic hours are 9 AM-6 PM Monday through Friday and 9 AM-12 PM Saturday, with the practice closed on Sundays. Flexible working hours are available to suit the right candidate.

The on-call roster is approximately 1 in 8 weekends and 1 weeknight per fortnight. Calls are screened by a triage service to minimise after hours disruptions. Callouts are minimal, especially during the winter months.

The practice offers 3 months of free accommodation and a generous CPD allowance to help you get started.

Located 2 hours from Melbourne and 1.5 hours from the beautiful coastline, this area boasts well-established wineries, top-notch restaurants, scenic hiking trails, and charming retail boutiques. Nestled near the heritage-listed Grampians, it’s a fantastic place to live, work, and play!
