Specialist in Veterinary Radiology

A rare opportunity exists for a diagnostic imaging specialist to work with Tasmania’s first and only veterinary CT scanner.

We are a group of five busy, well-equipped, privately-owned, veterinary hospitals located in the greater Hobart area. Our focus as a business has always been to provide the highest standard of patient and client care possible. We see a varied case load and receive both medicine and surgical referrals from around Tasmania. Our staff are motivated and caring and we always strive to deliver our gold standard service in a fun and happy environment.

Your days will be varied, interesting, highly rewarding but at a slower pace than your mainland counterparts. You can expect to perform and provide reports for CT examinations (usually 1 per day) and diagnostic ultrasound (average 5-6 per day), the ad hoc provision of diagnostic imaging advice and interpretation to facilitate case management, respond to email enquiries from referring veterinarians and, when possible, the provision of written reports for CT studies. Active involvement in the maintenance of diagnostic imaging protocols as well as mentoring and training of other staff would be required.

Existing diagnostic imaging facilities across our hospitals include digital radiography (Canon DR and AGFA CR systems), Esaote Mylab Ultrasound and a recently purchased Canon Aquilon 32-slice CT. The imaging technology has also been recently upgraded to include a unified PACS solution and up-to-date imaging software.

The successful applicant will have the opportunity to make this role their own, managing referrals and appointments in a timely manner to ensure the provision of high standard imaging that supports the positive surgical and health outcomes of our patients. This is the first role of its type in Tasmania and short distance travel between the GP practices would be required.

The successful applicant would have the ability to work independently and as part of a wider professional network. You value efficiency, good communication and collaboration, ensuring that each client interaction is a positive one. You are flexible in your approach, solutions focussed and thrive on providing high quality diagnostic images and advice.

The working hours of this position are negotiable and will not typically involve after-hours work. A competitive starting salary of $200k per annum negotiable based on experience is offered along with a generous professional development allowance and additional one weeks study leave. Relocation assistance is available for successful interstate or international candidates.

Living in Tasmania means you can be guaranteed a work life balance. Short commutes to work allow more time for doing what you love. From excellent restaurants, fresh produce, stunning wilderness, pristine waterways, bush walking and biking tracks, there are plenty of amazing adventures to undertake in your time away from work. If you love nature, fresh air and a laid-back lifestyle, this job is for you.

You are a vet right? So you want to work and go home with a sense of achievement, correct? And you also have a purpose, am I right? You want to feel like you are changing your clients & patients’ life maybe?

That comes with all the usual perks that everyone offers but is not always enough: good pay, Vin membership, CPD allowance, etc. But the most important thing is the team, our team is the best and every staff member will show you how awesome it is to work here!

And yes, we are flexible, with time, with your appt list, with how you want to handle your day, with what’s your special interest. You will also be spending time at the clinic, performing procedures and consults with an amazing supportive team.

It has been an absolute madhouse behind the doors at Bird and Exotic Animal Clinic. We were rapidly growing before the onset of Covid-19, and now as restrictions continue, other clinics are diverting many of their exotics to us (WE LOVE IT.) With the increasing needs of our patients and exciting plans for expanded services coming soon, we are looking to grow our team.

Bird and Exotic Animal Clinic is seeking TWO new staff members.

Here at BEAC we only see birds and exotic pets - there are no dogs or cats. Yes, we based our business name on a pun! We are a young team, who are passionate about adventure and advancement. There is never a dull moment in our practice - we mainly see emergency or unwell patients, a large number of referrals, and a few primary cases. If you dream of only seeing birds, small mammals, reptiles, fish and invertebrates - then this is the place for you.

We are located in Williamstown in Melbourne's inner west, right on the bay. The town has a rich maritime history and we are surrounded by nature reserves, parks and beaches. Clients travel from all over to see us and they are dedicated, passionate and wonderful - you will develop bonds with like minded people who simply want the best for their pet. Our staff and our clients mutually recognise and respect that the human-animal bond is incredible, no matter what background the human or what form the animal. We embrace and celebrate diversity in our staff and clients, and are strongly supportive LGBTQIA+ people and allies.‍

Our practice is open seven days a week, every day of the year, so the role will involve working weekends, public holidays and potentially nights. Our staff have a great team spirit, working together and supporting each other to get through busy days. Our super-nurses have a massive array of skills to help you in every day practice. We also have future colleagues (students) nearly every week in our midst, as we all love teaching and learning from each other.

At BEAC we are all about the latest and greatest, encouraging our staff to partake in innovating, researching and always attempting new things. The practice is still developing and able to evolve, grow and change, and we are always open to new ideas. The field is also rapidly advancing, and a great place for the imaginative to flex their creativity in trying what no one has ever tried before. We strongly encourage further career development and continued education, and for all our staff to add a few more letters after their name.

We are looking for:

Applications: Please email a cover letter and CV to

Specialist in Veterinary Radiology

The Centre for Animal Referral and Emergency (CARE) is seeking a registered specialist in veterinary radiology to join our friendly team.

About CARE

CARE is a busy, well-equipped, privately-owned, multi-specialist veterinary hospital located in Collingwood, on the fringe of Melbourne’s inner-CBD. It maintains a strong emphasis on the standard of patient and client care and is distinguished by the cooperative and complimentary involvement of specialist emergency and critical care, surgery, internal medicine, neurology, and diagnostic imaging services.  The working environment is friendly and constructive, and the caseload moderated to allow emphasis on the quality, rather than the quantity, of patient care.

Existing diagnostic imaging facilities include digital radiography, Phillips Affinity 50G ultrasound, Siemens Somatom 16-slice CT and Phillips BV29 mobile C-arm fluoroscopy with digital subtraction angiography. Beyond this, there is a strong commitment to the continued expansion and advancement of on-site imaging facilities, with PACS system and digital radiography upgrades in process and future plans for high-field MRI installation.

The position

An opportunity exists for a specialist in diagnostic imaging who enjoys and values integration and positive interaction with specialists in other clinical fields with the intention of optimising patient management. This clinical exposure has the potential to be interesting and rewarding, and the direct involvement of the diagnostic imaging specialist in clinical problem solving is well established, welcomed, and well respected among existing staff of the hospital.

The position involves performing and providing reports for diagnostic ultrasound examinations, the ad hoc provision of diagnostic imaging advice and interpretation to facilitate case management within the hospital, responding to email enquiries from bona fide referring veterinarians for assessment of diagnostic images and, when possible, the provision of written reports for CT studies performed within the hospital.

Further to the clinical aspects of the role, the diagnostic imaging specialist is central in the provision of advice on the purchase and upgrade of diagnostic imaging equipment and the ongoing expansion of existing imaging services at CARE. Active involvement in the provision of staff continuing education and contribution to the maintenance of diagnostic imaging protocols would be expected.

The working hours of the position are flexible and negotiable, being either part or full time depending on the availability of the successful applicant, and do not typically involve after-hours work.  An attractive remuneration package would be negotiated, including four weeks’ annual leave and one week of study leave annually (full time pro-rata). Relocation assistance is available for successful interstate or international candidates.

How to apply

Applications, including letter of intent and CV, or any enquiries, should be directed to Ms Kelley Johnson at

It is preferable that applicants have some experience in one or more of the intensive animal species, but recent graduates will be given due consideration. Those applicants more focused on regulation, animal health policy and R&D will also be considered. The company provides extensive mentoring to new employees that want to progress their knowledge and experience base.

Whilst the companies head office is based in Melbourne, the role will involve routine interstate travel and offer scope for the successful applicant to reside elsewhere within Australia.

Remuneration will be commensurate with the applicant’s level of experience.

Please contact Dr Peter Scott on 0408 386 724 or or Nathan Binstock on 0417 263 366 to discuss further. All enquiries will be handled in strict confidence.

Veterinary help needed in Indonesian Borneo

Help improve animal welfare in Indonesia by sharing your skills and experience!

Facility and Program Description:
Kawasan Wisata Pendidikan Lingkungan Hidup (KWPLH) is an environmental education center located in Balikpapan, East Kalimantan, Indonesian Borneo. The facility’s goal is to increase environmental awareness and animal welfare. In addition to our animal programmes, the facility has several education buildings, picnic areas and playgrounds. To see a full description of the KWPLH’s facilities and goals visit or email us.

KWPLH provides a wonderful accommodation in the form of a forested enclosure for 7 sun bears rescued from the illegal pet trade. Sun bears are the mascot of Balikpapan, and many of our current education programs focus on this species.

Our Domestic Animal Program was created in response to the frequent dumping of kittens/puppies at KWPLH. We have attempted to establish a safe home for abandoned animals and a sterilization and adoption program. We currently have 145+ cats under our care as well as close to 30 dogs, and several other rescued wildlife species whenever brought to the center (macaque, civets, slow loris, birds).

The goals of our Domestic Animal Program are:

Experienced Volunteer Vet Needed
We are in need of experienced veterinarians to assist with training and development of our local animal care team. The primary goal is to train up our team [specifically our local veterinarian] in specialist medical care for our animals, under more or less challenging conditions, and to train our Indonesian animal care-taking staff in mastering necessary skills and knowledge on specialist issues that need frequent treatments.

Other tasks include ideas on improvement of our medical administration and records, enrichment and training programs, and enhancing our adoption programme. There will be work with the sun bears and other wild species, but most time will go to our domestic animals and staff training.

Outlined below is a list of topics that we need help with:

For more details about KWPLH and the veterinary position please email us!
We welcome the help from professional veterinarians in 2020-2021. The position is preferably for 3+ months, but do e-mail us as well if you are available for shorter periods. Free housing is provided at the center, but a small local catering fee is required for meals. A volunteer visa will need to be applied for. Couples are also welcome to apply. Due to the Corona virus, timing of postings will depend on how this situation develops."

Calling all night owls!

We are a comprehensive, high quality, non-corporate small animal practice based in Brisbane. We are seeking 2 full or part time veterinarians to join our team. Our practice incorporates an innovative house call service with state of the art clinics equipped with digital x-ray, dental x-ray, ultrasound, and in-house biochemistry and haematology. We have 2 clinics – a Kenmore Surgery and a Sunnybank Surgery.

The House Call Vet After Hours service is a unique after hours house call service covering all areas of Brisbane. Like the house call doctors service for people, THCV After Hours sees cases that are not severe enough for referral to an emergency facility but need treatment before their regular vet is next open. Common cases include eye/skin/ear problems, lameness, vomiting/diarrhoea, and urinary issues. Home euthanasia is also a very important part of our service.

Unlike other vet to home services that expect you to provide your own vehicle, drugs and equipment, THCV After Hours ensures you are fully supported. We set you up with everything you need to practice great medicine, which means that all you need to bring to work is yourself.

Our support includes:

Our after-hours service operates every evening (6pm-midnight Monday to Friday, 3pm-midnight Saturdays) and all day on Sundays and public holidays (7am-midnight) and is seeing an increasing & interesting caseload. We aim to be able to attend all appointment requests within 2 hours and tend to book an appointment every hour to hour and a half. The after hours service is based out of our Kenmore practice.

Remuneration is very lucrative with an hourly rate starting from $75 depending on experience & your tailored remuneration package.

Email applications to or call 0438 786 205 if you’d like to chat more about how the service works.
