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

VETS on Carlton is a 4 vet urban practice in a modern, purpose-built, fully equipped clinic in sub-tropical Wanganui.

Our workload is an almost solely small animal but spiced with a few backyard and lifestyle block livestock patients to keep life interesting. Our practice has a strong involvement in Greyhound Sports Medicine and in Canine Reproduction.

After-hours is shared equally on a 1 in 10 Rota with our colleagues at Wanganui Veterinary Services so, while this is primarily a SA position, there is an expectation of some proficiency in Production Animal & Equine after-hours emergencies.

Our ideal applicant would:

  • Have two or more years of experience in practice although new or recent graduates are welcome to apply.
  • 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 be eligible to 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 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 other centres in the North Island.
