Vet Nurse Job Gisbourne Region NZ - 209,097SB2

LOCATION: Gisborne Region, New Zealand

TYPE OF WORK: 100% Companion Animal

HOURS: Full Time


SALARY: Commensurate with experience

JOB NO: 209,097SB2

A practice in New Zealand’s North Island is seeking an experienced veterinary nurse to join the team.

This full-time role involves a 40-hour week including weekend work.

Saturday shifts are 9 am to 12 pm and then the nurse is on-call. On Sunday, the nurse on-call will come in with the vet at 9 am and at 4 pm to check on the inpatients. You will receive 1.5 days off for each weekend worked.

The ideal candidate would be enthusiastic, caring and a team player.

The clinic is modern and well-equipped with consulting rooms, well-stocked pharmacies, sterile surgical suites, x-ray and ultrasound capabilities, and closely supervised hospitalisation areas.

The area is known for its wineries and surf beaches, combining its semi-rural charm with an amazing coastline. It is the perfect place to allow you to choose whether you would like to be a city dweller or enjoy rural life!

Comments from current employee: It’s the best job I have had as a vet so far: high workload but low stress. We have fun at work, and I enjoy it so much. I think a vet who would be suited needs to be fast-paced, adaptable, have quite good surgical skills (ortho not a requirement), enjoy a rural environment and be open-minded to learn new stuff. There is the opportunity to do some large animal work if one wanted to. I like working with horses, so I absolutely can do a horse call if I want to. Really, it’s a GREAT place to work.
