Launceston is a fantastic town to live in. More and more people and coming from the “mainland” to live in Launceston because of its relaxed, family friendly and affordable lifestyle (housing is much cheaper here than the capital cities).

We are surrounded by vineyards producing quality chardonnay and pinot noir. Great beaches with turquoise water are only one hour away and in winter it only takes an hour to get to the snow (or in 2020, the snow came to Launceston!).

Mixed Animal Veterinarian Required
Sheffield Veterinary Clinic - Tasmania

Do you want to work in a tightly-knit and supportive veterinary clinic?
Are you looking to extend your knowledge and have the opportunity to utilise this knowledge?
Are you interested in a fulfilling career in mixed animal practice?

At the Sheffield Veterinary Clinic we love our work. With a high standard of service and always aiming for a great client experience, the clients (and generally the patients) love our work too.

Medical consultations are routinely given 30 minutes. This allows time to get to know the clients, their pets and their problems. As the vet, it allows you to run bloods, check that skin scraping and even clip the nails. Oh, and there’s time to write up the jobs too. Even vaccinations and quick rechecks get 15 minutes.

Now when I say that we love our work, it doesn’t mean that everything is always puppies and new born foals - we are not that naive. We have our fair share of sad cases and difficult cases, just like all veterinary clinics. We also perform animal shelter work for the R.S.P.C.A. This is critically needed work but often tears strongly at the heart-strings.

We are a privately owned veterinary clinic, and that’s important. It means flexibility, and that means that your ideas and plans can be incorporated into the practice. You will be able to practice your way and be supported in your passions and interests as you do so. We are committed to allowing our staff members to expand and grow. We offer the standard week of study leave, but if you would like a workshop or course, all you need to do is ask. We currently have one vet studying to sit her membership exams in imaging. Hours of work are flexible and definitely open to negotiation around your requirements.

What we have:
We are a country clinic in a busy town about 25 minutes from Devonport. We have a boss who is (a little) obsessed with equipment and consequently, we have most, if not all, of the toys you might need or want.

Please click here to see photos! photos

What we need:
A veterinarian with a friendly demeanour and a good rapport with people and animals. Someone who is caring, understanding and thorough in their approach. Someone who is willing and able to cover after hours on a roster arrangement.

What we are offering:
A good working environment. These days that really is the most important thing anyone can offer, but we know that you also need food on the table… So…

Above award salary, continuing education, a work car and relocation assistance.

If you are interested and would like more information please check out our Facebook page or drop us a line, send us a message or shoot us an email - admin@sheffieldvetclinic.com.au

HOLT, BELCONNEN - SMALL ANIMAL New Graduates welcomeNew Position

New Graduates: Have you heard about Capital Paws Veterinary Group in Canberra?

We are a co-operative of locally owned and operated vet practices, with an approach to veterinary life that is totally unique.

We are currently looking for a vet to join our Kippax Veterinary Hospital team.

At Capital Paws, we truly value our veterinary colleagues and have built practice teams that are rich with highly engaged, experienced vets who give excellent patient care, whilst enjoying satisfying and rewarding careers. We provide supportive environments for more recent graduates and offer genuine leadership opportunities for senior vets, up to and including partnership.

This job opportunity is for a new or recent graduate, and we are very excited to now be able to offer a more structured new graduate program. This includes one day rostered off clinics a month to rotate through the clinics upskilling in various areas depending on where the expertise is, new graduate lunch times rounds on a monthly basis with other new and recent graduates in our group and a formalised mentoring program.  We will pay above award and also help with some of the initial costs to get started in your career. We work hard to ensure that our organisation is a very safe and supportive place to start your career.

Please click here to see photos! photos

We currently have seven directors involved with Capital Paws, all of whom live in Canberra and work in our hospitals. Each of us are happy and content in our veterinary work and apart from looking after our patients, our greatest motivation is to provide excellent opportunities for our fellow vets and nurses to thrive in this rewarding vocation.

Each of the nine hospitals in our group has its own unique personality and is run as an individual practice, whilst enjoying the benefits of a broader network of colleagues, equipment, systems, and facilities. We have vets with a wide range of special interests including, behaviour, surgery, imaging, dentistry, exotics, internal medicine (radioactive iodine ward), dermatology and practice management.  These skills are readily shared across the practices and allow for mentorship in just about any area of interest.  Outside of clinical support, we also provide guidance when it comes to work/life balance and how to manage stress and anxiety - skills that are so important in our industry.

If you come to work with us, we can cater to your strengths and interests by finding a role that is the right fit for you. Given that each of our practice owners has a family, we are very flexible and understanding when it comes to working around the other commitments you have in life. 

In joining us, you become a member of a diverse community of friendly vets with a wide range of clinical and life experience.  This has meant that we can have special interest groups in such areas as ultrasonography, medicine, and behaviour, however, also in tennis, trivia, mountain biking, rock climbing, bouldering, netball, bushwalking, skiing, back country snow sports and baking! We have an immediate social and professional network for you to become a part of.

Naturally, we are keen for you to engage in continuing education, which can range from the regular internal sessions that take place over beer and takeaway, through to support for study for memberships and everything in between.

We use our skills and knowledge to contribute to organisations such as Pets in the Park, Domestic Violence Support, and local animal rescue organisations. We also run our own charitable organisation, “The Canberra Mob”, that provides animal health programs in indigenous communities in the Northern Territory. We undertake two NT trips each year and many of our vets and nurses have spent weeks doing desexing and parasite treatment programs in the remote locations that we visit.

We believe that what we have to offer is unique in the Australian veterinary landscape.  At the moment, we are looking for a vet to join the 35 who currently make up our community. We would love to hear from you to further discuss the opportunity for you to contribute to our team, as we support you to develop your professional and personal interests.

Canberra is a terrific place to live. It is a beautiful city of lakes and natural bushland. We have the best network of walking, running and mountain bike trails in Australia. There are great restaurants and cafes, along with innumerable clubs catering to every lifestyle interest. Many of our vets spend summer weekends at the south coast and winter weekends at the snow, and there is no better place for bringing up kids!

Here are some thoughts about working with the Capital Paws group from some current team members:

“Joining the team at Canberra Vet Group has been an incredibly rewarding experience both professionally and personally. Regular professional development meetings, opportunities to learn and grow skills in the areas you’re interested in and regular social opportunities within the group keep things interesting and exciting. Working for a group of people that are available, check in often, actively listen and have a genuine interest and investment in my well-being and that of my colleagues has been a great experience.”

Loreena Butcher 2013 grad

“I moved to Canberra after 10 years in rural mixed practice.  I have loved being a part of a team who works together to achieve best practice care for their patients and clients.  My role has been flexible to allow me to pursue my areas of interest (medicine and ultrasonography) and I have appreciated the continued support and encouragement to learn and develop my skills.  Canberra itself has been a great place to live and I have appreciated having the time to enjoy all it has to offer.” 

Saraih Werry – 2007 grad

“After 20 years of mixed practice in Dubbo, with the encouragement of Alison, I moved my family to Canberra and began work with Capital Paws. The values and support espoused by this group, and in particular their amazing veterinary team, have inspired and mentored this mid-career veterinarian and allowed him to maintain a passion for this profession. The group’s approach empowers people to become successful vets and vets to become successful people.”

Mark Carter, New practice partner, Googong Veterinary Centre, 1997 grad

QUEANBEYAN - SMALL ANIMALS New Graduates welcome

Hi! I'm Heather, a 2008 Sydney Uni Grad. I've been working as an employee vet at Queanbeyan Veterinary Hospital for the past 7 years. Please read on to see why you should come and join me!

Why Queanbeyan? We are a fantastic, friendly, and inclusive team. Our clientele are generally lovely, and usually keen to fully work up cases, so you can practice medicine to a satisfyingly high standard. As part of the Capital Paws Group we have access to a wide network of vets with different special interest areas who are always keen to help. We have sonographers, surgeons, behaviourists, dentists and medicine gurus, a rehabilitation vet and reptile enthusiasts, among others. Whatever your question or interest there is someone to talk to. We have regular social and continuing education catch ups, and  the level of collegiality is second to none. Our group is encouraging and supportive of continuing education, and skills development. If you're interested we would love you to get involved with the group's animal health programmes in indigenous communities in the Northern Territory.

Our employers are dedicated to work life balance for everyone, and the practices are extremely family friendly. We are open on Saturday mornings but the rest of the weekend is our own. On our normal full time roster we all have a regular weekday off. Management is really flexible though, if you have only specific hours you can work, please get in touch and discuss it with us.

What about the bells and whistles? Our clinics are delightfully well equipped with in house DR radiography, dental radiography, a great ultrasound machine (and in house sonographer) and tonometry as some of our many handy tools.

What about the after hours? No after hours! We're so lucky in Canberra to have two emergency centres at night time and the specialist centre just down the road from us. At night we can relax, knowing our patients are in good hands.

Why the Canberra region? Canberra is honestly an undiscovered gem of a place to live. There is so much culture and beautiful outdoor space. As the capital, and home of all the embassies, the vibe is much more cosmopolitan than you might expect for a city of this size. We are convenient to the mountains and it is honestly so easy to dash to other places, such as Sydney, for a visit. The climate is beautiful and the air is fresh. You can get anywhere in town in under an  hour! Coming with a family? This is an excellent city to raise kids, there are so many things to do (and if you join us you're welcome to ask me about them!) Coming as a new grad? This is a lively city full of young professionals.

Who should apply? If you are a small animal vet with a love of providing high quality care,  and this ad speaks to you, we would love to hear from you. Whether you are a new grad or an experienced hand I am sure you will appreciate our warm and supportive environment. We are committed to providing support and mentoring for our new grads, and generally being an encouraging team for all staff across the group.

Want to know more? You can ask me any questions heathers@queanbeyanvet.com.au, or go straight to management and apply! billt@queanbeyanvet.com.au

Queanbeyan Veterinary Hospital, 94 Yass Rd, Queanbeyan. 02 6299 2509.

Aspire to be an excellent all-round clinician? Interested in advanced surgery?

West Queanbeyan has an exceptional career development opportunity available.

Who we are

What is on offer.

Located just over the ACT border in NSW we enjoy all the benefits that being part of the Canberra region provides. Whether it be Inner City living, restaurant and café/coffee culture, National Cultural Institutions or clean, rural living with easy access to National Parks, Ski Fields and the South Coast of NSW.  It offers good employment opportunities for partners, good infrastructure, a stable economy and is great place for those wanting to raise a family. The Canberra region has so much more to offer than just politicians!

What we are looking for:

An additional team member, either recent graduate or experienced vet, seeking the chance to further develop excellent all round clinical skills (and perhaps more advanced surgical skills), wanting the opportunity to work for an experienced practitioner who not only has these skills himself but also a keen interest in supporting less experienced vets in their journey to develop theirs.

We are looking for someone that value’s honesty, integrity, respect and a supportive environment who is flexible, adaptable and professional, possesses excellent communication skills, a positive can-do attitude and self-awareness.

A vet with sound up to date theoretical knowledge, demonstrated clinical skills, a dedication to continued learning and the willingness and drive to expand their abilities in all aspects of clinical practice.
A vet who is passionate and genuinely likes helping people and their pets to achieve the best outcome.  

Team Member Testimonial.
Working at WQVH has been everything I hoped for in my New Graduate job. Whilst being busy and challenged (during the very challenging year of 2020!), I have been supported every step of the way both personally and in my professional development. The hours are very fair and the salary is rewarding. Additionally, I have been able to manage a great work life balance this year, which is not something many Veterinarians can say! As a team, we believe in evidence-based learning and providing exceptional care. We fulfil this ethos by regularly updating our equipment and facilities and having regular staff meetings to improve our protocols. I know I will continue to grow as a Veterinarian and as a person at this practice. WQVH is not just a vet clinic but a fun, supportive community who care tremendously about clients, their pets and anything else that comes through the doors. I would choose WQVH ten times over and recommend it to any new graduate or experienced vet.

2 positions available (one for you and your best mate)

There are thousands of jobs available nationwide so there is no need to settle just for good money, lots of holidays, and good caseload - choose a workplace where you will also feel happy to walk through the door each day! All our staff love coming to work. We respect and support each other and treat each other with kindness. If this sounds like the kind of place you would enjoy being a part of then you will be pleased to know that Dr Melissa has had a baby and now…Small Friends Veterinary Hospital has a job available! Best of all, you don’t even need to choose between your friends and a great job. Let us employ you and your best mate! We have room for both of you.

Please click here to see photos! photos

Why work for Small Friends?
You would be working in a positive, kind and happy environment with a qualified and professional team, all of whom truly enjoy their work, and a caring boss whose first priority is always his staff. We have a very low staff turnover – tangible proof of a truly happy workplace – and happy, well supported and supportive nurses who make a vet’s job a dream!

You will work in a small, very clean and modern veterinary hospital with a dedicated surgical theatre, digital x-ray and ultrasound and in-house pathology suite. You will see educated and motivated clients who want the very best for their furry family members. Our hospital is designed to make our patients feel at home – there are no huge waiting areas to overwhelm you or your patients at Small Friends! Your roster will allow (and your boss will encourage) a great work life balance and each day at work will offer an interesting mix of consulting, treatment and surgical responsibilities. As a respected member of our friendly team you will have the opportunity to develop a close working relationship with our loyal clients and their small friends, whilst being encouraged to work up cases and take them through from initial presentation to resolution.

You will be well supported and mentored in your day-to-day work. If you are a new graduate, we want to assist you to gain confidence, learn new skills and to share with you our love of the veterinary profession. Our performance appraisals are all about you gaining confidence and us being able to provide the right support, not about us filling the coffers - we will never set consultation charge targets. We encourage, and our clients expect, a sound, scientific and sensible approach to all cases.

The position also offers spacious and newly-furnished accommodation should you require it, just enough space for you and your bestie.

Why work in Canberra?
Yes, those primary school trips to Parliament House really did Canberra no favours, but there is a lot more to this place than politicians and Floriade! With all the sunshine (even in the winter) it is a great place to live. We have excellent restaurants, world-class galleries and museums, many award-winning wineries, great shopping, a wide network of cycle paths, and thriving sporting and performing arts scenes. We even get an extra two public holidays here each year!  Are you a foodie? Email us for a no strings attached care package from Canberra…we’d love to show off our local produce and give you a taste of what you can experience living in our city.

During the Covid-19 pandemic Canberrans have taken their personal responsibilities seriously and we have not had a community transferred case of Covid in the ACT for over 12 months. At the time of print, we are enjoying a relatively normal lifestyle – restaurants, shops, cinemas and sporting venues are still open, children remain in school and small gatherings are allowed. Relocation from elsewhere in Australia to start a permanent veterinarian position is supported by the local government. We are happy to pay you your normal salary for any quarantine period enforced by the government for you to accept a position with Small Friends Vet.

As a new grad vet I was very nervous to start my new job and move to a new city – 4 years on I’m so glad I did! Small Friends has been such a supportive environment, allowing me to grow and learn new techniques with somebody ‘having my back’ if I ever need it. Moving to Canberra from Melbourne has also been great. I love living in Canberra – it has all the benefits of a major city without the traffic and some really gorgeous countryside (and great wineries) just a few minutes drive away! Dr Sally 

What kind of person are we looking for?
We are looking for a friendly pet owner (or two friendly pet owners) who truly enjoy helping clients and their small friends. Our successful applicant/s will appreciate the important role all our staff play in the service we provide, care about delivering excellent customer service, possess excellent communication skills, the desire to exceed client expectations and be well presented. You want a workplace that considers mental health and workplace happiness first priorities.
