Wadestown Vet Clinic & Cattery is a well established small animal practice, and one of the few remaining independent and locally owned clinics in the Greater Wellington Region. We pride ourselves on providing quality veterinary care for our patients and have fostered an environment of dedicated and friendly clients and staff. We are a supportive workplace and encourage CPD.

Due to recent growth and a change in roles for our current staff, we now have a position available for a full time receptionist. We are looking for our new receptionist to be excited and motivated about being part of our growth and all the changes that come with this.

In addition to being front of house, there will be significant day to day administration for the cattery and our radioactive iodine patients. Veterinary nurses and nurse assistants who are happy to work as receptionists only are welcome to apply. Previous experience as a receptionist is a requirement.

-excellent general reception skills: reliability, punctuality, organisational skills, problem solving skills, bubbly happy personality, empathy, prioritisation, pride of your workspace and role

-great customer service skills

-passionate about animal welfare

-flexible and efficient

-friendly and love working for a local business

-confidence and calmness when multi-tasking- there are times when we can have both phones going and numerous clients waiting at the desk, as well as emails constantly coming in

-great communication skills - confidence and eloquence with written and verbal language, as well as confidence/experience in dealing with conflict resolution

-previous experience as a receptionist and proven ability to be a great representation of the business to the general public

-a general understanding and appreciation of the veterinary industry

We envision the successful applicant to be working 4 full days per week plus occasional Saturdays. There is no after hours work and we are closed on Public Holidays. The weekday off may change.

The start date will be mid-June, however we are flexible with starting earlier or later as needed. Our rate of pay is commensurate with experience.

If you're a motivated, talented and experienced receptionist who's excited about their vocation and share our passion for delivering outstanding support to our staff, patients and clients, then we would love to hear from you.

We value integrity, communication and kindness.
