JOB NO: 212,762MH

Mixed practice veterinarian OR small animal associate required at a four-vet practice in Victoria’s beautiful countryside.

Both new graduates and experienced vets are welcome to apply. The start date is flexible.

The hospital has been established for over 45 years, with current owners in place for the past 17 years. They enjoy a reputation for providing high-quality veterinary medicine and surgery to an appreciative client base. Success is measured by client satisfaction and patient results.

The practice is approximately 50% small animal, 30% beef cattle, 15% horses with the remainder an interesting mix of small ruminants, birds and wildlife.

Specialists regularly visit the practice, and they have close relationships with referral centres in Melbourne for advice or referral of complex cases.

The position can be tailored to your interest with a small animal, cattle or equine focus. Small animal only vets are welcome to apply.

Vets working full-time enjoy a four-day working week with a 1:4 shared after-hours roster. However, the roster can be adapted for the right candidate.

You will be working with supportive and experienced practitioners and a team of friendly, trained support staff. Ongoing support is provided by the practice owner to ensure professional development. New graduates will be eased into the after-hours roster over six months as competence develops.

An enthusiastic and fun team player with good communication skills is the ideal applicant. The owners value work-life balance and job satisfaction and have a very low staff turnover. There is scope for long term career development, ownership or profit share arrangements. Very low-cost care is provided for staff animals.

The position offers the opportunity to work in a supportive environment. The practice is purpose-built with in-house lab, high-quality small animal ultrasound, orthopaedic equipment, portable DR digital radiography, large animal portable ultrasound and dedicated practice vehicles. The practice has an adjoining large animal facility for the treatment of inpatients.

The practice is located in a lovely community in north-east Victoria. Living and working here, you will be spoilt for choice of outdoor pursuits! Climb Victoria’s highest mountains, kayak in a myriad of rivers and streams, visit the snow resorts for a weekend ski trip or pack a picnic to enjoy the vineyards. With many cafes, restaurants and sporting clubs, this town provides a great place to live, and is only 90 minutes from Melbourne CBD.
