Organisation/clinic: VETS on Carlton

Location: Wanganui

Position type: Companion Animal Veterinarian


VETS on Carlton are seeking a Companion Animal Veterinarian for a full-time position.

VETS on Carlton is a three-veterinarian urban practice in a modern, purpose-built, fully equipped clinic, set in beautiful Wanganui.

The VETS on Carlton workload is almost solely small animal but spiced with a few backyard and lifestyle patients to keep life interesting.

After-hours is shared equally on a 1 in 10 rota between the ten veterinarians from Wanganui Veterinary Services and VETS on Carlton, so, while this is primarily a small animal position, some proficiency with large animal emergency care is preferred.

Our ideal applicant would:

  • Have excellent communication skills and empathy in order to build strong relationships with our clients and with your work colleagues.
  • Have a passion for our profession and a "can do" problem-solving attitude.
  • Be a team player who is organised and self-motivated, resilient, and willing to take themselves to new heights.
  • Must be (or eligible to be be) registered with Veterinary Council of New Zealand.

In return we offer:

  • A top remuneration package including vehicle, professional registration fees, CPD support, and assistance with relocation.
  • A mentored and broad introduction to your veterinary career.
  • A well-resourced modern clinic with a full in-house lab, ultrasound, CR radiography, endoscopy, and more.
  • A top team of support staff all of whom are qualified veterinary nurses.
  • A "family-like" workplace culture and loads of social and collegial support.
  • Special interest areas are supported and encouraged.

The Wanganui region has plenty to offer, with a friendly, vibrant, and affordable community, access to the great outdoors, and within easy reach of many other centres in the North Island.
