SOUTHLAND - OTAUTAU - MIXED PRACTICE

Veterinary Surgeon – Mixed Practice

Come and join our friendly mixed practice and enjoy a varied and interesting caseload in a community that values and appreciates our knowledge and skills.  We are an established practice aiming to provide friendly and compassionate care for all of our patients and loyal client base.

The Location
Otautau is a rural town surrounded by the most stunning coastlines and mountains alike.  We have an abundance of outdoor and indoor sporting opportunities, good local shopping and plenty of popular eateries nearby.

Southland is the most cost-effective place to live in New Zealand and offers a multitude of job opportunities for partners making the move with you.  Schools and medical resources are of a high standard making it an ideal location for individuals, couples and families alike.

About Us
Otautau Vets Ltd has provided professional and affordable veterinary care to the Western Southland region for over 20 years. We are an independent practice committed to providing a wide range of services, sound advice and a high level of veterinary care.

We are a genuine mixed practice with around 75% of our work large animal, predominantly Dairy, and 25% Companion animal.  Our varied caseload allows for special interests to be developed and for individuals to grow and expand the services we provide.  Southland is home to some of the most progressive and innovative farmers who give us the opportunity for involvement in their business on a more intensive basis.  As a result, we have vets trained in InCalf, Healthy Hoof and with interests in Dairy Nutrition and Equine Dentistry.

Please click here to see photos! photos

With our nearest companion animal referral centre in Christchurch, there is ample opportunity for developing interests in both companion animal medicine and surgery. We also utilise telemedicine referrals where necessary to provide the best medical and surgical options for our patients.

About the Role
Our preference would be for a full-time veterinary surgeon, but have scope to accommodate a part-time role for the right candidate.

We are open 8.30am-5.30pm, with no weekend clinics and we strive for a 1-in-6 OOH roster or better throughout the year, apart from 10-12 weeks in Spring where we have two Vets on-call.  We have a qualified Veterinary Nurse on-call over the weekend to assist with emergencies and in-patient care during the busier Spring period.

Due to the seasonal nature of our large animal work, there is a huge variation in the weighting of clinical work, but we aim to maintain variation whilst also accommodating individual skills and strengths. We also have Large Animal Technicians to ease the burden of the routine work.

There are always opportunities to learn new skills and with our great team of Vets, someone is always happy to lend a hand if more hands, more experience or just some friendly encouragement is required.

A healthy work-life balance is important to us all and we aim to ensure that everyone gets their allocated breaks and finishes on time.

About You
Ultimately, we are looking for the right candidate to fit in with our team. Qualifications are obviously essential, but we are happy to work with differing levels of experience to ensure that you are confident in your role.  The qualities that are particularly important to us are:

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).

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.
