Organisation: South Wairarapa Veterinary Services

Location: Carterton

Position type: Farm Veterinarian & Graduate Mixed Veterinarian


What do you call a sheep on wheels? A Lamb-orghini.

If you enjoy this sort of lame humour integrated into your working week then you’ll love our practice!

We are currently on the hunt for:

  • An experienced Farm Veterinarian
  • A new or recent graduate Mixed Veterinarian

SWVS is an owner-operated practice, covering a wide range of commercial and lifestyle farms in the rural Wairarapa region. We offer a solid CPD programme, outstanding facilities, and a vast array of experience levels and interest areas throughout our vet team, providing a strong support network to help you develop your skills in Large Animal practice.

We have a progressive dairy client base with herd sizes averaging around 430 and offer a full range of clinical and advisory services. We also service areas of more extensive farmland with a range of enterprises including commercial and stud sheep, cattle and deer, allowing our vets to follow their area of interest.

We believe that communication and relationship building is key in maintaining our strong connections with our farming clients and there is enough scale to get stuck in and learn quickly while in a supportive environment. We have a modern and forward-thinking approach to after-hours which is accompanied by a generous roster, time-in-lieu allowances, and additional remuneration for any calls attended to.

What else is on offer?

  • Competitive remuneration.
  • Contribution towards relocation costs including offsetting carbon emissions for air travel if required.
  • Paid veterinarian breakfast every quarter.
  • Mentorship programmes.
