Salary Package: up to $197,000 dependant on experience (Base Salary up to $160,000 + relocation expenses + bonuses and entitlements)

Experienced Small animal / Equine Practice Veterinarian for young, energetic and rapidly growing practice in one of the most vibrant townships in Australia – Alice Springs.

Northern Territory Veterinary Services’ Alice Veterinary Centre is rapidly growing and we are seeking a sixth veterinarian to join our friendly team. Ideally you will have small animal/equine practice experience or at least be competent with small animals and basic ambulatory pleasure horse practice and we’ll show you the rest.

The Practice: The practice is recently renovated, expanding into a large purpose build, fully air conditioned and includes two dedicated surgical theatres, large prep/treatment room, separate dog and cat wards, and horse stables. Equipment includes digital x-ray, 2 ultrasounds, endoscopes, in house Idexx lab machines, fluid pumps, pulse ox, ECG and BP monitors, digital dental xray, iM3 dental machine, orthopaedic equipment (TPLO and Stryker Drills), fully computerized with Rx works and 3 vehicles equipped for Equine ambulatory practice and remote community work. The clinic is rapidly expanding with the majority of the work being small animal and equine. We work also with the local wildlife centres and parks, treating a variety of native wildlife. We do a small amount of cattle station work, and this area can be focused on and grown if desired.

Remote Indigenous Community Practice: In Alice Springs, we also operate Aboriginal Community Veterinary Services, providing services to remote indigenous communities throughout the whole NT. Community trips will be fully mentored and then accompanied with a nurse. Visits last for 1 to 14 days, averaging 5 days in duration and often travelling to spectacular and otherwise inaccessible areas including Uluru and the MacDonnell Ranges. Our remote work offers unique veterinary experiences in remote areas not normally seen by the general public. It is a great way to enhance animal welfare in remote communities.

The Position: We are seeking an experienced small animal or Small Animal/Equine veterinarian to help expand the practice which has grown rapidly. Applicants can be predominantly small animal or equine focused. Small animal work which is a large percentage of the practice includes routine small animal medicine and surgery with advanced surgical options if desired, and a small component of birds, natives and exotics. Equine work is routine ambulatory practice for pleasure and station horses and local racetrack attendance. Willingness to travel to remote Aboriginal Communities and overseas to take part in dog and cat health and control programs is also encouraged.

Continuing Education: At NTVS, we encourage further education and offer at least 1 week of continuing education per year to our veterinary staff. We will send staff to courses and conferences to help further their skills and knowledge in a variety of different areas. Special interests are encouraged and we strongly follow best practice and evidence based medicine.

The Town: Alice Springs is a bustling town and far from being in the middle of nowhere. It has an extremely well serviced airport to all major capital cities, loads of shops, café’s, restaurants, schools, sports and cultural activities. Just a 2 hour flight to Darwin and most places. It is surrounded by many national parks some of them internationally renown including Uluru (Ayers Rock), Kata Tjuta (The Olgas), Kings Canyon, Palm Valley and the Larrapinta Trail. Its magnificent landscapes lend themselves to an active outdoors lifestyle. Major festivals and events include the Finke Desert Race, Masters Games, Henley-on-Todd Regatta, Camel Cup, and Alice Desert Festival to name a few.

Salary: We are offering a generous salary package of up to $197k (commensurate with experience). Total annual leave and days off of up to 15 weeks per year (4 weeks annual leave, 1+ week study leave and accumulated RDO’s) leaves plenty of time for exploring the area, visits interstate or overseas holidays. Salary sacrifice options are also available for rent and other items which can help maximise your after tax income.
