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

We currently have three full time vets, and due to rapid growth in our family-owned and operated business (and our wish to maintain a family-friendly work-life balance!) we are looking for a fourth vet to join our team.

Are you looking for a fun and casual work environment, somewhere you can develop new friendships and get involved in extra-curricular activities such as fire-pit nights, mixed team sports, Friday knock-off drinks, occasional pub meals together?

What about being well supported in this profession? How about working in a clinic where we celebrate wins, have appreciation days, catch-up huddles and rounds each morning, and regular monthly and quarterly team planning days? Support in continuing education is a given.

And to be part of a young and enthusiastic group of individuals who are proudly developing a great community practice?

We haven’t even mentioned the spectacular scenery – 5 minutes to the beach, based right on the beautiful Forth river and in the heart of the relaxed Forth township, just up the road to Cradle Mountain or a leisurely drive to vineyards, the highlands, the stunning east coast or Hobart.

This position is for an experienced large animal vet. Someone who is passionate about business development and possesses the skills to drive growth in large animal medicine in the practice. This requires a skill set to facilitate farmer education evenings, establish herd health programs, perform standard ambulatory services, have the ability to resonate and connect with farmers at their level, understand economics and really grow a close relationship between the practice and the farming community. This process will be complemented by the current veterinary team, including the practice owner and principal veterinarian.

The four-vet team work closely together on cases and also gel well with the nursing and reception team. The focus is on quality of service, not quantity, and time is allowed to fully work up cases and deliver the right choices to primary producers and pet owners alike.

We are looking for a fulltime or part time vet to join our exceptional team (5 vets/5 nurses). Manuka Vet Hospital practices veterinary medicine with a purpose.

This attitude pervades the work culture you will be working in. It is a very compassionate and supportive environment - with personal care of our team a focused priority. In fact, our practice ethos is “To make people and pets, the healthiest and happiest they can be”.

We are able to offer and encourage you to master any area of small animal work that motivates you. Many previous vets are now specialists across the country, have their memberships in many varied disciplines or just furthering their knowledge in Distance education courses. You could even have access to a regular media spot if that interested you! We really value, and place a very strong emphasis on, continuing education. Of course, we have all the top line equipment (Tonopen, U/S, radioactive Iodine etc)
