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.

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.

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.

A great opportunity is available for an experienced veterinarian to join a team of 4+ vets at a well-equipped, small animal practice in Darwin. The start date for this position is very flexible - anytime in during 2019. 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. 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.

Please click here to see photos! photos

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 rolf@allpetsvet.com.au.

Recently we have opened a second purpose-built clinic called ‘Vets at Amaroo’. This clinic is situated in the relatively new suburb of Amaroo, approximately a 10-minute drive from Hall.


Opening our second practice gives us an opportunity to expand our wonderful team of vets.     

Clinical Signs: We embrace autonomy, mastery and purpose, so you will get to lead the pet’s health journey and drive your own learning journey, underpinned with an underlying deep seated caring orientated purpose. We are one big family without the Christmas arguments and through our love of learning, teamwork, respect and trust, we deliver the best care to the pets and their people in a fun environment

Physical Exam: We are a six-vet practice, operating out of a purpose-built clinic. With a mix of old heads and youthful vitality, each vet feels appreciated and worthwhile. We are supported by experienced qualified nurses and utilise a dedicated consult nurse. We work to everyone's strengths and help each other to do our best every day. Our equipment is well maintained and up to date.  We are obsessed with continual learning through generously funded conference leave and a plethora of in house learning sessions.

Diagnosis: Veterinary Nirvana.

Prognosis: So, if you are a good listener, empathetic, love talking to people and helping clients give their pets the best possible life then this is the place for you. If you embrace challenges and love working in a team then we want you. If you are keen to grow in a supportive environment then we will help you become the best version of yourself.

Canberra Veterinary Emergency Service is looking for Casual or Part Time Experienced Veterinarians to join our team of experienced Emergency Veterinarians.

We have a fun, compassionate and motivated team who prioritises the best care for patients and their humans in what can be an emotionally charged atmosphere. We are looking for individuals who can remain calm under pressure and think fast when situations change, including both patients and their owners! The workload can be demanding and there are no set meal (or coffee!) breaks but the thrill of saving lives and truly making a difference is addictive and the rewards of seeing your patient go home make it all worth while.

So if you are the type of person who runs towards a crashing patient rather than away from them, Emergency and Critical Care may be your calling!

Previous experience in emergency and critical care is an advantage but your diagnostic approach, attitude and professionalism is of paramount importance to us. If you do not have experience in emergency and critical care, internal and external continuing education and training will be provided as well as emotional support from a compassionate and experienced team of emergency vets and nurses.

You must be able to multitask and prioritise workflow without becoming stressed. Any shift can contain a combination of consulting, surgery, monitoring and care of hospital and critical care cases.

The ideal candidate will have:

Please only apply if you are happy and able to work overnights, weekends and public holidays on a shared and rotating roster.
