Tasmania, ACT and Northern Territory



A great opportunity is available for a veterinarian to join a team of 4+ vets at a well-equipped, small animal practice in Darwin. Both experienced vets and new graduates are encouraged to apply. The start date for this position is very flexible - from September 2019 onwards. This can be a permanent position or a 6 to 12 month contract.

The perks:

This is a busy practice and vets have the opportunity to treat a range of cases, including tropical diseases, orthopaedics, and fascinating wildlife, with full support from those who have seen it all before. We have an exceptional qualified nursing team and long serving experienced vets to support you. This position will give you the chance to learn and test your diagnostic and surgical skills (being so far from specialists allows the luxury of handling complicated cases). Yet, should the need really arise, patients can still be popped on a plane and sent to the experts.

The clinic is computerised and well-equipped with the latest equipment and technology allowing vets to practice top-quality medicine. Equipment includes digital x-ray and ultrasound, in-house laboratory and anaesthetic monitoring equipment. The staff operate very much as a team, in a friendly and supportive atmosphere.

This is a great opportunity to enjoy a relaxed lifestyle in this great city and a chance to enjoy the great climate (temperatures rarely exceed 33 degrees, despite Darwin's reputation). Darwin's young population, capital city facilities, tropical ambience and well-known friendliness make it a difficult place to beat. There is also the opportunity to explore some of Australia's most beautiful outback, whether bush-walking, camping, fishing, horse riding, scuba diving etc.

Please email applications including resume and cover letter to Rolf Hallenstein, Director at manager@allpetsvet.com.au.

Experienced or New Graduate Mixed Practice Veterinarian required for a young, energetic and rapidly growing practice in one of the most vibrant townships in Australia – Alice Springs.

Northern Territory Veterinary Services’ Alice Veterinary Centre is rapidly growing and we are seeking a fourth veterinarian to join our friendly team. Ideally you will have mixed practice experience or at least be competent with small animals and basic ambulatory pleasure horse practice and we’ll show you the rest.

The Practice: The practice is brand new and purpose built, fully air conditioned and includes a dedicated surgical theatre, large prep/treatment room and separate dog and cat wards. Equipment includes digital x-ray, 2 ultrasounds, endoscopes, in house Idexx lab machines, fluid pumps, pulse ox, ECG and BP monitors, digital dental xray, iM3 dental machine, orthopaedic equipment, fully computerized with Rx works and 3 vehicles equipped for large animal ambulatory practice and remote community work. The clinic is rapidly expanding with the majority of the work being small animal and equine. We work also with the local wildlife centres and parks, treating a variety of native wildlife. We do a small amount of cattle station work, and this area can be focused on and grown if desired.

Please click here to see photos! photos

Remote Indigenous Community Practice: In Alice Springs, we also operate Aboriginal Community Veterinary Services, providing services to remote indigenous communities throughout the whole NT. Community trips will be fully mentored and then accompanied with a nurse. Visits last for 1 to 14 days, averaging 5 days in duration and often travelling to spectacular and otherwise inaccessible areas including Uluru and the MacDonnell Ranges. Our remote work offers unique veterinary experiences in remote areas not normally seen by the general public. It is a great way to enhance animal welfare in remote communities.

The Position: We are seeking an experienced small animal or mixed animal veterinarian to help expand the practice which has grown rapidly, however, new graduates are also welcome to apply. Applicants can be predominantly small animal or equine focused, but an interest and/or willingness to participate in mixed animal practice will be considered highly. Small animal work which is a large percentage of the practice includes routine small animal medicine and surgery with advanced surgical options if desired, and a small component of birds, natives and exotics. Equine work is routine ambulatory practice for pleasure and station horses and local racetrack attendance. Willingness to travel to remote Aboriginal Communities and overseas to take part in dog and cat health and control programs is also encouraged.

Continuing Education: At NTVS, we encourage further education and offer at least 1 week of continuing education per year to our veterinary staff. We will send staff to courses and conferences to help further their skills and knowledge in a variety of different areas. Special interests are encouraged and we strongly follow best practice and evidence based medicine.

The Town: Alice Springs is a bustling town and far from being in the middle of nowhere. It has an extremely well serviced airport to all major capital cities, loads of shops, café’s, restaurants, schools, sports and cultural activities. Just a 2 hour flight to Darwin and most places. It is surrounded by many national parks some of them internationally renown including Uluru (Ayers Rock), Kata Tjuta (The Olgas), Kings Canyon, Palm Valley and the Larrapinta Trail. Its magnificent landscapes lend themselves to an active outdoors lifestyle. Major festivals and events include the Finke Desert Race, Masters Games, Henley-on-Todd Regatta, Camel Cup, and Alice Desert Festival to name a few.

Salary: We are offering a generous salary package of up to $150k (commensurate with experience) + profit sharing and partnership prospects if desired. Total annual leave and days off of up to 15 weeks per year (4 weeks annual leave, 1+ week study leave and accumulated RDO’s) leaves plenty of time for exploring the area, visits interstate or overseas holidays. Salary sacrifice options are also available for rent and other items which can help maximise your after tax income.
