CENTRAL OTAGO, CROMWELL/ALEXANDRA - MIXED New Position

Mixed Animal Veterinarian  - Alexandra/Cromwell

We appreciate that one of the special things in the world is the human animal bond. But of course, you know that – that’s why you’re in this job!

We’re looking for an experienced Mixed Animal Veterinarian who understands the big role that animals play in people’s lives and someone who is focused predominantly on companion animals.

You’ll bring solid experience as a Mixed Animal Veterinarian and be comfortable doing all the things you’d expect, such as consultations, clinical diagnosis, farm service work and surgery. As well as empathy and a focus on animal wellness, you’ll have a real flair for working with our clients and looking after them as well as their animals. While you can expect some on-call work for emergencies, you’ll also find that we’re fair and reasonable about it, and still make sure you have that all-important work-life balance.

Our Alexandra and Cromwell clinics collaborate with the other local VetEnt clinics in the region and you also benefit from the ability to leverage the collegial networks and support structures from across the national company, meaning you have the benefit of a wider team, while focussing on growing your own part of the business.

In return, you’ll find an array of career advancement opportunities including training support, CPD, clinic exchanges and involvement in our subsidiary operations such as FarmCare, VetEnt Research and PureMilk. You’ll have access to the latest technology in a well-equipped practice and a combined pool of knowledge from a network of supportive and collaborative vets all over New Zealand.

That’s because VetEnt is one of New Zealand’s largest veterinary groups, and we’re all united by our passion for animal care. Based in Alexandra/Cromwell, in the heart of Central Otago, you’ll be able to make the most of your life off the clock, as well.
