Pet Doctors
Manurewa
Part-time position (2 days per week and 1 in 3 Saturdays)

If you are passionate companion animal vet who would like to join our lovely Manurewa team and work with us on a part-time basis, we would love to hear from you.

In this role, you will be working 2 days per week and 1 in 3 Saturday shifts. If you would like additional days of work, we can accommodate that at our other nearby clinic. However, this is not a necessary part of this role, but is available to you if you are interested in more than two days per week.

As a part of our Manurewa team, you will be delivering exceptional veterinary care to our patients and will be an advocate for animal welfare. You will be encouraged to provide the best possible standard of care and will be able to collaborate with two outstanding vets, who will be a part of your team. Our nurses are also very experienced and our Team Leader, Gaylene, runs a smooth sailing ship!

This role is suited to someone who has a bit of experience as a companion animal vet already, rather than a new graduate, as two days per week won't allow for as much growth and development. As a clinical member of our team, there are some great opportunities within our group to influence how things are done and make suggestions about improving processes and our clinic.

We are very keen to hear from you if this role sounds like something you would be interested in. We can set up a time for you to meet with our Regional Manager, Cavan and talk to our Lead Vet, or even tour the clinic, if you wish to do so first!

CPD and the development of special interests are strongly encouraged and we have a generous budget to support this.

A happy and cohesive team is important to us and we realise the importance of work life balance these days. Our roster reflects this and there are no afterhours, Sunday or late night shifts. Barring an emergency there shouldn’t be any reason for late finishes.
