The Ballarat Veterinary Practice Equine clinic is a 12-vet practice based on the edge of the Ballarat Turf Club Racing & Training Centre, where 550 horses are trained and 25 race meetings are held each year. There is also a large standardbred population, with 40 meetings held per year at the local harness track. The clinic provides a hospital based surgical and imaging referral service, and is the base for the ambulatory services provided to the racetrack & general equine clients in the surrounding district.

The hospital also has an internship program with four interns currently employed. The practice conducts regular visits to neighbouring racing regions and has a satellite five-vet equine clinic based in Warrnambool. 

The position available is for a member of the racetrack and ambulatory team, which provides service to all breeds of horses from thoroughbreds, standardbreds and sport horses, through to pleasure horses and ponies in the district.

As well as racing stable work, typical general practice equine work is also undertaken including lameness assessment, dentistry, lacerations, reproductive work including ultrasound scanning, field colic assessment and all general veterinary equine work. Due to the size of the practice and level of experience there is strong support for our ambulatory veterinarians at all times. 

The practice has three surgeons (two specialist and one ACVS residency trained) available for consultation and assistance with referral of cases.  The clinic has full surgical facilities, ultrasound, digital radiography, endoscopy, scintigraphy and standing MRI facilities and the ability to house up to 28 horses.

Successful applicants should be graduates with at least two years' experience, preferably in a similar role.

Weekend after hours responsibility is shared equally between members of the ambulatory team with the normal rotation being one weekend every four weeks. Duties will involve all ambulatory services as outlined above and also attending both thoroughbred and harness race meetings as the official veterinarian. 

Remuneration is dependent on experience, however the package starts at $120,000 which includes base salary, superannuation, and an estimate of extra after hours commissions, as well as a car and phone for business and reasonable personal use. Also included in the remuneration package is Australian Veterinary Association membership and an annual Continuing Education stipend of $2,000 per annum.  We support and encourage applicants to pursue certificate and membership qualifications.  We also assist with visa applications and relocation logistics. 

Ballarat is a thriving regional city, rich in history and culture.  It is the perfect place to settle with all of the convenience of city life, but with postcard-perfect scenic beauty, and less hustle and bustle than Melbourne - while still only being an hour and a half drive from all Melbourne has to offer.  With highly sought after private schools, and excellent health care, Victoria's largest inland city has everything you need.  For more insight about life in Ballarat, please click https://youtu.be/BP3ml8sEUBg  

Interested applicants should forward a resume and covering letter which includes the names of three referees to the attention of Dr. Andrew Cust at careers@bvp.com.au

Our location offers a great lifestyle opportunity. Being just 25 minutes drive from the Melbourne cbd we have the advantage of being able to live in the city’s inner suburbs (and reap all the cultural/lifestyle benefits of this) but get out to work with more laid back folk in the semirural urban fringe. We pride ourselves on managing client expectations to not put unachievable/unsustainable workloads on our staff. We also limit our service to a manageable (50km) radius and do not pursue ‘big’ clients with demanding expectations. We work very hard to only perform routine duties during sociable business hours – 8.30am to 5pm Monday to Friday.

Ideal applicants should have at least 12 months experience in mixed or equine practice, however new graduates with a strong background with horses are also encouraged to apply. Applicants are required to be available on call, on weekends and out of hours - for genuine emergencies only, on a rotating roster. Applicants should be eligible for registration by the Victorian Veterinary Practitioners Registration Board and be a current Australian resident or visa holder.

Further information can be found on our web site www.wevs.com.au

If interested please forward your CV to Dr Nicholas Robson at info@wevs.com.au or phone 0418 385 223.
