Yarram Veterinary Centre has built a reputation for reliability and professionalism in our Large Animal practice, which is primarily Dairy Cattle. Our Small Animal clients have come to know and trust our services and take comfort in our staying up to date with the latest clinical approaches.

With the calving season coming up, familiarity with dairy cattle calving assistance and birthing issues would be highly regarded.

  • A warm and kind approach to client relations
  • A desire to share your experience and expertise with all the team

About You

  • We are open minded about length of experience – for us it is more about your capability, passion, vibrancy and enthusiasm
  • You enjoy getting out of the clinic to serve clients as well as in-house consultations
  • You recognise that regional practices can have needs outside normal business hours and are prepared to share the occasional call out after hours

Our Offer

  • $100-120k salary range equivalent
  • Use of a motor vehicle for practice needs
  • A warm and welcoming environment and a team you can trust
  • The prospect of a permanent role
