TAURANGA, BAY OF PLENTY - FULL OR PART TIME SMALL ANIMAL New Graduates welcomeNew Position

Koru Vets in Tauranga
Tauranga, Bay of Plenty, 3 Vet Small Animal Small Animal Practice. Full or Part Time.


Koru Vets in Tauranga looking for Small Animal Clinician, Full Time or Part Time

Sadly, our British vet is returning home, so we are looking for a full time/ part time small animal clinician. Experience preferred, but new grads are welcome.

Koru Vets is a progressive 3 vet, multi clinic setup in Tauranga. Our second clinic opened in June 2018. Both clinics are purpose built and are the most spacious small-animal clinics in the Bay of Plenty region allowing for multiple consulting rooms, operating theatres and spacious animal accommodation in separate cat and dog wards.

Both clinics have access to state-of-the art equipment and facilities to include latest DR X-ray, state of the art ultrasound, in-house biochemistry and haematology, endoscopy, video otoscopy, ecg, tonometry, the list goes on.

Please click here to see photos! photos

We are non-corporate, low volume – high value clinic with excellent support staff ratio. Our knowledgeable and well trained nurses and vet techs triage and assist during consultations and are versed in taking blood samples, intravenous injections, taking x-rays and carry out laboratory procedures, but also provide cost estimates to customers. This lack of distraction allows you to concentrate on what you are doing best, to fully work up cases to reach a diagnosis and to concentrate on performing medical and surgical procedures.

We are able to carry out most advanced soft tissue and orthopaedic procedures in-house, apart from spinal surgery.

Our cloud based veterinary software from the US is the most advanced on the market today and is unique (in NZ) to our clinic allowing for efficient communication with customers and amongst the staff.

We provide our own after hours service so that we don't miss out on interesting surgical and medical cases.

The after/ hours service is shared equally and low volume. The nurses take the calls and only disturb the vet when a patient comes into the clinic, which does not happen very often.

The Branches:

  1. Mount Maungauni Branch is located at the heart of Mount Maunganui with its wonderful beaches - there is plenty to do in your time off.
  2. Tauranga Crossing Branch is in Tauranga in a central location with easy access to the city, the beach, Rotorua lakes and the Kaimai Ranges.

‘Since coming to work for NVC, my whole outlook on my job, career and ultimately my life has substantially improved. I love that the ethos at NVC is to invest in people, treat them well and show them that they are valued. I have certainly felt that.’ – Louise Parry, Lead Veterinarian, Everton Park Veterinary Surgery

‘Yesterday afternoon we did a stitch up or a dog's ear. The case was referred to us by another vet group who had vets available but refused to see the case. I believe this would never happen at NVC because of the great culture that our CEO has worked hard to infuse through NVC and which I hope we never lose’. – Peter Elliott, Lead Veterinarian, Vetcall Ashmore

Sounds great! How do I apply?
Whether you are seeking a new career direction, a lifestyle change, a challenge or a relocation to a new environment, we would love to have a chat.

This position offers a negotiable base salary range of $60,000 - $110,000 (pro rata for part-time), dependant on the suitable applicant’s skills and experience. Whilst NVC seeks to source applicants who meet the above criteria and skill set, alternative applicant’s may still be considered. In these cases, the base salary is subject to change to suit.
