meander valley logo

Do you want the opportunity to work with a fast paced, fun and ever growing business?

Are you an experienced Business or Practice Manager looking for a leadership role within a friendly local community? Do you love people and animals?

Here at Meander Valley Veterinary Service we are a non-corporate, family owned and growing business with a team of over 30 staff who take pride in providing the highest standard of veterinary care in all aspects of a mixed practice. We are a privately owned practice who strive to excel in all areas of our work, but don’t get too stressed whilst doing it. We currently don’t have KPI’s and the like, as we want our work to speak for itself, and it does. However, there is room for a skilled manager to come in and put their stamp on achieving greater functionality and efficiency whilst maintaining a harmonious work environment, as that is very important to us.

The practice is in the process of changing ownership within the next 6 months, so this will be an ideal opportunity for someone with high levels of management experience to establish themselves prior to assisting in a smooth transition to the next team of practice owners (who already work in the practice)

Why work at the Deloraine Vets?

This is a genuine mixed practice, where we provide comprehensive care across the full range of species. As well as the small animal component, we also serve large primary producers both dairy and beef, hobby farmers, amateur equine through to performance and racing stables across the Meander Valley and surrounds.

This position is based at our main hospital in Deloraine, where we do all our routine work, but also the high end diagnostics and treatments including complicated orthopaedics. Our busy equine department is both ambulatory and also enjoys using our newly completed equine surgical facility where routine and complicated surgeries are done on a regular basis. Our team performs everything from routine procedures through to complex surgery and emergency care.

We’re looking for a Practice Manager to join our team; this position is not replacing an existing role but becoming an addition to our supportive managerial team. This role will have an emphasis on HR and scheduling.

You will provide operational support to our team, act as a go to for reception to assist in triaging appointments, oversee the schedule which includes advising on rescheduling of appointments to make room for emergencies, managing staff hours and breaks, assist with accounts, and most importantly, form strong relationships with our clients. You’ll be supporting a dedicated team in a growing, family orientated, privately owned practice that’s been active in the community for over 50 years.

What’s required of you:

This role will be based at our Deloraine Clinic located at 23 Beefeater Street, Deloraine, TAS, 7304

For a confidential discussion regarding this position, please contact Melinda Bramich (Office Manager) via our reception on (03) 6362 2108 or alternatively, email accounts@meandervets.com.au
