This job is no longer accepting applications.

Are you keen to do mostly surgery and spend your week doing what you love? We have a group of clinics looking for an in-house surgeon to refer to. There is also opportunity for you to grow our other vets’ surgical skills if you love to teach and mentor.

Your expertise and specialist interest skills will provide our patients an option outside of referral practice, and allow our eager grads and experienced Vets the opportunity to continue learning and advancing their skills and knowledge alongside you!


We have an exciting new opportunity for a Senior Vet with a special interest in surgery to join our awesome, busy multivet practice in Wellington. Our Petone clinic has a large team with an incredible caring and positive culture who enjoy fast paced small animal practice.

We are looking for a rockstar vet helping to lead our clinics into the future.

You’ll also have:

  • A recognised Bachelor of Veterinary Science or equivalent qualification
  • Proficiency in all-round medicine and surgery in companion animal practice
  • Special interest surgical skills e.g. orthopaedics is beneficial, but not essential
