Time for a new adventure?

Come to beautiful Christchurch, New Zealand.

Become part of a small animal practice with a friendly, close knit team, but with the support and benefits of being part of a large group. Our vet of over 20 years is taking a step back to focus on family and her trips to do charity work on the pacific islands.

Christchurch, the garden city, is in the centre of New Zealand’s South Island. We have an international airport and are in easy reach of both the majestic Southern Alps and the Pacific Ocean. Mountain biking, ski fields, vineyards, hot springs and beaches are all on our doorstep, whilst we still have the culture and ease of living in a friendly, liveable, regenerating city.

We are looking for an enthusiastic, motivated team player who prides themselves on a high standard of care and has enough experience to be sole charge at times to work in our well-equipped two vet practice. We have lots of toys including digital dental x-rays, ultrasound and endoscopy.

The job is full-time, but a part-time job share would be considered.

You must be eligible to work in New Zealand and we can help with sponsorship, visas and a relocation allowance.

Sounds great! How do I apply?

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. All the scenery and outdoor sports that the South Island is famous for are outside your door – and you’ll be welcomed into a friendly small-town community with a relaxed lifestyle. So it’s definitely a role that will allow you to do your best vet work.

If all this sounds like you, you’re keen to lead a small team, and you meet the conditions of the Veterinary Council of New Zealand, you could well have found your next career move.

Has your time come?
