Experienced Vet- Australia

Independent Practices

New South Wales, Australia


Vet Surgeon

Feb 20

Our primary consultations are 30-minutes each and our practice is staffed adequately to manage our clients’ needs to prevent employee burn-out. We provide consult-free time and pre-entered urgent appointment blocks to prevent vets being double-booked and allow time to breathe during the day! We also have a dedicated Customer Care Team which allows our Nursing Team to focus on nursing and support for the vets rather than getting tied up on the phone.

Several of our experienced vets (including both practice owners) are either already ANZCVS members or studying to achieve this qualification.

We are a independently-owned practice, where we value collaboration into how we can successfully serve our clients, meeting monthly to discuss how we can improve together. Our practice has 7 (FTE) vets, and a modern, well-equipped building with 2 sterile theatres, Vetscan in-house biochemistry, haematology and urinalysis machines, Imagyst faecal and cytology analysers, Canon DR digital radiography, IM3 digital dental radiography and My Lab ultrasound machine. We also regularly host visiting specialists in imaging, internal medicine and surgery.

About the role

We are seeking an experienced veterinarian, who is comfortable working across both surgery and consulting shifts, to join our team as a permanent employee on either a full or part-time basis. We could also accommodate a part time winter 2023 start transitioning into a full time roster around October 2023.

Full Time Vet Roster.

A permanent full-time position based on 38 hours per week. Your weekly roster will include 1-2 surgery shifts and 3-4 consulting shifts, including a shared weekend roster of 1 in 2 Saturdays and 1 in 8 Sundays plus 2 Public Holidays per year. There is very little sole-charge work required.


Part Time Vet Roster.

A permanent part-time position is based on 20-30 hours per week. Your weekly roster will include 1-2 surgery shifts and 2-3 consulting shifts, including a shared weekend roster of 1 in 2 Saturdays, 1 in 8 Sundays and 1 Public Holiday per year. There is very little sole-charge work required.

We encourage work-life balance so there are no after-hours on-call work, as we refer locally to NEVS - Northside Emergency Veterinary Service. On occasions where there is an in-patient that needs to be checked in the late evening, the vet or nurse available to do the check is paid a fee for doing so which is charged to the client.

·       Minimum of 2 years’ experience in small animal medicine and surgery

·       Must be currently registered with the Veterinary Practitioners Board of NSW (or with another Australian state vet board)

·       Must have current NSW EPA Radiation User Licence

·       Demonstrate excellent communication skills

·       Full (unrestricted) working rights in Australia

What we offer


Salary is determined on level of experience, availability and skill set of the successful applicant but we believe in paying what you’re worth! Starting salary package is negotiable from $100 000pa (aus) (full-time or pro-rata part-time) and will potentially be renegotiated after 6 months depending on performance, case management, flexibility and team fit.


We also offer the following:

-        We encourage and support CPD and have practice membership of the Centre for Veterinary Education (CVE), as well as regular in-clinic and external training opportunities relating to topics that support small animal veterinary care

-        An additional week’s paid leave is available as an option to complete CPD or simply have a well-earned break!
