About Your Role

We are looking for a veterinary nurse to join the dedicated team at our BESTPRACTICE® accredited Timaru clinic, although the successful applicant may have the opportunity to work at any Aorangi Vets clinic.

Occasionally, we might ask you to be on-call during weekends or after hours.

This role has come about because one of our team is moving to a new town, and we are looking for someone awesome to take their place!

  • at least two years' experience in a vet clinic
  • previous reception experience
  • a veterinary nursing qualification
  • strong communication skills
