Location: Auckland

Position type: Full-time Companion Animal Veterinarian

Website: www.pakurangavets.co.nz

What are vets after? Generous pay? Regular breaks? Under 40 hours a week? Zero workplace toxicity? Low stress? Awesome clients? No after hours, Sundays or public holidays? Experienced and supportive team members? Fun? Highly skilled nurses? Private practice with no corporate demands? Mod cons? Lots of toys? Supportive on-site management?

We can offer all that.  WE ARE FULLY STAFFED. All we want is an experienced full-time vet (5+ years) to compliment the rest of the team and offer the clinic something exciting and new. To allow us to grow and expand further. We even have space for as specialist to set up if they want to have their own place free from the big corporates. We have a recent graduate who we support religiously so cannot take on another sorry!

We are based in East Auckland, have a great reputation, growing all the time. We have the luxury of a big team who enjoy their work so lockdown, split teams and Covid isolations were all been pretty straight forward with most staff actually reducing hours on full pay. It is great to be out the other side but we are still doing our best to keep our staff safe and happy every day. 

We really want a team player that can work efficiently and forge strong relationships with clients and patients. Good time management and happy to take the manic days along with the dead quiet ones. You even get to go home early some days, and you even get breaks! And our staff negotiate the hours they want to work and can work pro-rata for more or less.

We can offer you a supportive and experienced veterinary team who enjoy working up cases thoroughly and offering an exemplary standard of care. We have two fully qualified nurses for every veterinarian so you always have an extra set of superb hands available. They are skilled and can do absolutely anything you ask as well as being awesome mind readers!  

CPD is encouraged and we are happy for our veterinarians to pursue special interests and we do some really cool stuff. We are in a good socio-economic area and many of our patients are insured, so work-ups are easily offered. We are also more than okay with firing crappy clients, we have zero tolerance of abuse. You won’t work Sundays, after-hours or public holidays. Saturdays are only half a day and rostered 1:4 with a whole day in lieu.  

We have all the mod-cons, ultrasound, digital x-ray, dental x-ray, vetscan, sterile theatre, three consult rooms, IM3 dental machine, fluid pumps, auto injector syringe, bair huggers, water beds, central air conditioning and VIN membership. 

This permanent role is suited to a veterinarian wanting to settle down long term. Any special interests welcomed, surgery/orthopedics, dentistry, medicine or even exotics if they float your boat. If you are keen to buy your own clinic in the future we can negotiate a succession plan!

Our veterinarians work efficiently, are great communicators and respect our amazing nurses.  We expect our team to never be afraid to ask for help and all share cases and seek peer opinions if necessary. We are team players, hard workers, enjoy our work, have a laugh and this makes for a non-toxic environment!  And most of all you don’t need to stress in your work day!  

We have our own registered charity The Rock Vets that provides free healthcare and de-sexing clinics on Niue Island. These trips are incredible, life changing and an exciting highlight for keen staff that volunteer.  

Pay is based on experience and you are paid what you are worth.  Must have the right to work in NZ.

BALCLUTHA, SOUTH OTAGO - MIXED

Mixed Animal Veterinarian - Balclutha, NZ

Are you considering the next step in your veterinarian career? Are you keen on practical rural experience in a small, welcoming community? VetSouth has an exciting opportunity for a full time, permanent, mixed animal veterinarian at our rapidly growing clinic in Balclutha.

This role will join an existing clinical team of four vets, three techs and a nurse, as well as becoming a part of the wider VetSouth family. The role split would be approximately 40% SA and 60% LA, and this can be flexible.

You will contribute to our growth journey by bringing mixed animal veterinarian expertise and experience, and the ability to build trusted and caring client relationships. You will join a highly motivated and close knit team who love what they do within our local community. We connect in with the larger teams within VetSouth, who provide excellent peer support, mentoring, networking, and breadth of expertise and career development opportunities.

VetSouth clinic’s are locally owned and operated, and future shareholdership is possible for the right candidate over time. We are also happy to consider applications from people willing to commute from further afield i.e. Dunedin.

Where we are located:
Balclutha is a small but well equipped town that is growing and developing. As the gateway to the Catlins Coast, Balclutha offers easy access to nature and is surrounded by beautiful scenery, making it an ideal location for anyone who enjoys nature and the outdoors. These are some of the best New Zealand has to offer, so living here would be a rewarding, fulfilling and enjoyable experience.
If you get a longing for the city, Dunedin city is only a one hour drive away, or if you are seeking a visit further afield the Dunedin International Airport is just 45 mins away. And there is so much more to explore on Balclutha’s doorstep (including Queenstown).

About us:
As a part of VetNZ Ltd, VetSouth brings quality veterinary services that are recognised as being truly world class. We are a progressive animal health business seen as a leader in our field, with clinics throughout NZ. We provide an extensive range of services to dairy clients, as well as to other production animals, working dogs and companion animals.
