A new multidisciplinary, state-of-the-art 24/7 veterinary hospital in a desirable inner suburb of Melbourne requires a specialist surgeon to join their team.

The employer aims to drive positive change for patients, clients and the team while building a culture of continual improvement, providing an opportunity for those who join the team to truly do and be their best.

The hospital is well-equipped, with facilities including eight consulting rooms, three theatres (positive pressure/HEPA filtered), a dedicated intensive care unit, Siemens fluoroscopy and 64 slice Siemens CT. There is room for future expansion and plans to install an MRI. There is also a large, spacious undercover car park.

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.

A board certified surgeon can expect a salary of between $280,000 – $300,000 per annum.
