Small Animal Veterinary Surgeon
- Stunning north coast NSW location - rated the "Best town in Australia"
- Flexible work arrangements and a strong focus on professional development
- Relocation assistance +/- temporary accommodation provided
Join a 4-Vet team whose passion is for supporting our local community by providing progressive veterinary care. Have professional development and time to perfect your surfing prowess (or maybe fishing skills instead?). Come and join us and live the relaxed coastal lifestyle while being in a practice that supports the professional and personal development of their whole team!
Are you sick of being surrounded by the rat race? Are you wanting to be able to catch a wave in the morning before work or maybe you’re looking for the solitude of a bush block? Come and join us and live the relaxed coastal lifestyle while being in a practice that supports the professional and personal development of their whole team!
We are a 4-5 Vet, two location small animal practice that strives to do the best we can do for our patients and our community. We love continuing education for our team and regularly get experts in their field to come and do in-house training so everyone can be kept up to date with the latest development. Last year we had a two day dental wetlab and a three day on-site behaviour workshop on low-stress handling and pre-visit sedation. We also participate in the leadership programs to help with team development and communication skills. On the schedule for this year is an in-clinic workshop on mindfulness techniques to help support the team’s mental wellbeing as that’s just as important as building clinical skills.
Really thorough and followed up to see how our dog was going the next few days. Highly recommend! – Nick Hardie-Grant (Google Review)
About this role
We need a Vet for a minimum of 2 days per week but would prefer a full time Vet so we can cover leave in-house rather than need to get locums in. We are happy to be flexible with work arrangements for example we have previously structured one vet’s work roster around their partners FIFO work schedule. We do need you to participate on our on-call roster (which we know sucks) BUT as a regional practice we feel it is important that our patients have access to veterinary care when they need it not just when it’s convenient to us to open the doors.
That being said, you will be compensated for weekends as though you worked the full day, not just been on call and the roster is only 1 night per week and 1 weekend a month. Once confident you will also need to be capable of sole charge, since let’s face it as no one really likes doing Saturdays much, we only roster a single Vet on at each clinic so the rest of the team can have a well-deserved weekend off!
Yamba is quite simply one of the most stunning coastal locations in Australia, with national parks, surfing reserves and a perfect mix of river, ocean and country lifestyle, all within only 3 hours of the nearest capital city. It has been voted the “Best Town in Australia”. Maclean has multiple options for primary and secondary school as well as a hospital and Yamba has a cinema and through the tourist seasons will often attract live bands. We are only 3hrs drive from Brisbane though if you need the occasional weekend away for more cultural activities
We are happy to consider applications from international Vets, however you will need to have current Australian registration. Relocation assistance can be provided if required. Accommodation provided for Locums and may be offered on a short-term basis for incoming permanent employees
