Want to live near the beach and wine country while working with a fabulous team? Come join Veterinary Associates Equine in Auckland, New Zealand! 

Veterinary Associates Equine is a rapidly expanding and progressive general and referral practice covering the Auckland region. We have a purpose-built hospital in Karaka, South Auckland and satellite practices in West Auckland and North Auckland. We are seeking enthusiastic veterinarians to join our satellite practices with an opportunity for either full-time or part-time work.  

The work in West and North Auckland is based around the Kumeu and Warkworth areas and has a caseload consisting mainly of sport horses and pleasure horses, including some breeding work. Veterinarians on staff at the Vet Associates Equine Hospital in Karaka include two board-certified surgeons, and a board-certified internist, all of whom are readily

available to provide backup and support for all members of the practice. 

We are committed to fostering a positive workplace culture with regular team meetings, journal club, Friday happy hours, and regular team-building activities. We pride ourselves on a work environment that is supportive, friendly, and engages a team-approach.  

Ideally the successful candidate will wish to work in a fun and supportive team environment and welcome joining a practice that provides high-quality veterinary care. In addition, the candidate will have a positive outlook, a good sense of humor, attention to detail, and strong communication skills. We aim to provide world class care to our patients; pride in one’s work and a desire to continue to develop veterinary skills with the latest research are important attributes in a potential candidate.  

 New Zealand is renowned for the great outdoors, and our local area is no exception. We have incredible beaches, surf, fishing, forest and bush walks, and great local schools. Being on the outskirts of a large city, there are many restaurants, and city culture is a short drive away. Many of our staff are involved in equestrian sports, including popular local hunts, show jumping, pony club, racing, and polo.

This is a great opportunity to join the dedicated, Vet Associates Equine family and to be part of our growing practice in beautiful New Zealand!

Paid professional liability are all part of the benefits package.
