EASTERN WAIKATO - MORRINSVILLE - MIXED / LARGE ANIMALS New Position

Experienced Mixed / Large Animal Veterinarian - Morrinsville

We are Veterinary Clinic Morrinsville. Our clients trust us to look after all creatures large and small: from dogs to dairy cows, unique NZ wildlife and everything in between. We're progressive veterinarians involved in some of the most critical support of NZ's important agricultural industry.
And we always have time for the animals that are part of our client's family too.

We are currently seeking an experienced and enthusiastic Mixed Animal / Dairy Cattle Veterinarian to join our Morrinsville team on a permanent basis.

Morrinsville is a town in the Eastern Waikato region of New Zealand's North Island. The district is one of the most fertile farming regions in New Zealand. Extensive natural features create an environment where outdoor activities are readily accessible to residents and visitors. The forest-clad hills of the Kaimai Ranges and Te Miro Forest Park are ideal for walking and mountain biking, and the district offers many opportunities for camping, kayaking, picnicking and other activities. Matamata-Piako is also within easy driving distance to great skiing and to New Zealand’s most popular surf and swimming beaches.

There’s all the benefits of living in a small town, such as safe communities, free parking and no traffic lights, but it's only 20 minutes to the city of Hamilton to enjoy the city life. World famous Hobbiton is 30 minutes away. Many of the best beaches in New Zealand are just an hour away, as is the playground of Rotorua. Auckland is 90 minutes away and it is a couple of hours to the ski fields - why wouldn't you want to work in such a central district with so much to offer?

About us:
As part of the wide VetNZ group, Veterinary Clinic Morrinsville can also offer opportunities to work in clinics elsewhere within New Zealand and share knowledge and resources. We are a progressive animal health business seen as a leader in its field, with clinics based throughout Southland and West Otago and clinics in Hokitika and Greymouth on the West Coast operating as West Coast Vets.

What we offer:

We recognise that our people are our greatest asset and we work hard at keeping them passionate and enthusiastic about what they do. Being a vet should be a challenging and enjoyable experience, and we can provide you with opportunities to develop your interests.

Just important as what we do, is how we do it. So we value our team loving what they do, making sure we get the job done right, always being one step ahead, and no matter who they are, they are always in it together.

If you would enjoy a role that provides you with variety, a great team environment and plenty of support, then please apply via the link below!

WAIMATE, CANTERBURY - FULL TIME MIXED/DAIRY ANIMAL

Veterinary Centre Waimate

Attention all recent grads! We are currently on the hunt for someone with the sound basics (ideally 2-5 years experience) who is now looking to extend themselves clinically and (with support) add some farm advisory to their skill set.

We will primarily be looking to hire someone who shows enthusiasm, a desire to be scientifically led, and a willingness to learn and work with current and future technology. With those three basics we can guide you the rest of the way!

The applicant would preferably be a grad who is comfortable enough with small animals to handle after-hours calls (with plenty of support) but wants to spend the majority of their time with large animals. We are a predominantly dairy practice, but still have a strong focus on sheep and beef, deer, and equine work, so an all-rounder would be great.

Please click here to see photos! photos

It’s easy to promise the world with development and growth for the next part of your career. In this case we offer up the chance to chat to our recent grads to see if the job is a good fit for you. They will (hopefully) tell you that we put our money where our mouth is – we have a burning desire to help our young vets develop to a point where they can eventually oversee farms for themselves (both dairy and sheep and beef), as well as follow their passion areas.

Our team of 10 vets (amongst a wider practice of 36 vets) work out of a brand-new facility in the heart of a fantastically friendly town of 4,000 people in South Canterbury. If you are keen to join us then please forward your CV and cover letter to ryan@vet111.co.nz
