JOB NO: 203,196LW

A position has become available for an enthusiastic veterinarian to work at a large, busy and growing hospital in the northern suburbs of Melbourne. This practice offers employees a supportive environment and an interesting and varied caseload.

The practice is committed to providing excellent pet health care available every hour of every day. Their services cover general practice as well as after-hours emergency and hospital care. Trauma cases, FB’s, pericardial effusion, toxicities (especially snake envenomations), oncology and referral patients are considered routine. The GP and ECC clinicians are supported by a canine medical specialist and visiting specialist surgeon.

The allocation of GP vs ECC shifts can be tailored for the applicant. There is also the possibility of a consulting only role.

The position can be full time or part-time hours. Ideally, you would be willing to work a mix of weekday day shifts, evenings and weekends. Well-paid overnight shifts are also available.

The ideal candidate will be compassionate with great customer service skills, have a solid GP grounding, and have the ability to work unsupervised. Experienced vets are available for mentoring and to discuss cases.

The nursing staff are helpful, experienced, competent and well-qualified. There are multiple nurses on during the day to provide backup and support.

The hospital is very well equipped, with equipment including endoscopy, ultrasound, ventilators and radiology. An in-house IDEXX laboratory is available, but the practice also makes extensive use of veterinary pathology services. Clinics are computerised and networked to a central database using RxWorks.

The practice comprises a large central hospital, emergency centre, plus branch practices.

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 is well located on a tram line and less than half an hour from the Melbourne CBD.

Vetlink is a free service for job seekers.
