Are you looking for a different and unique opportunity to work as a mixed animal or production animal veterinarian alongside like-minded veterinarians and rural professionals? We’ve got just the position that you’ve been looking for – read on.

Keinzley AgVet is a small, family-based and progressive company located in the stunningly beautiful Wairarapa. Our business includes a purpose built companion animal clinic in Masterton, a production animal clinic in Carterton and a rural supplies business that services farmers across the Wairarapa region. We’re proudly celebrating 30 years in business and are looking for another veterinarian to help support our business growth.

You as our ideal candidate will be a mixed animal veterinarian with a strong focus on client relations, be friendly and flexible and be able to fit into a team environment. You might be interested in a senior or intermediate mixed animal or production animal role. Otherwise, we’re open to discussing this role with veterinarians with all levels of experience and backgrounds, working full or part time.

We currently employ five veterinarians plus locums and 20 other support staff including technical farm advisors. We have a friendly and rewarding team environment where our people are very much our focus. You’ll be warmly welcomed into our highly valued and supported team. Our leadership team includes a companion animal veterinarian with 22 years’ experience in all aspects of small animal medicine and surgery, and a production animal veterinarian with 17 years’ experience with a particular interest in dairy medicine.

For the right candidate there are opportunities to develop numerous areas of professional interest due to the future growth of the company. We are offering strong mentorship and support from our veterinarians, farm advisors and our support staff. Open learning and CPD development will be actively encouraged and strongly supported, for example the Australia and New Zealand College of Veterinary Science exams or courses through Massey University. You might be interested in broadening your knowledge of whole farm systems (dairy, sheep, beef, deer). If so, you’ll be surrounded by just the right people. Seven technical farm advisors work alongside our farmer clients providing whole-farm systems support including pasture and crop advice, agronomy support and all aspects of farm supplies. If you’re keen to build practical, hands-on knowledge of pastures, crops, nutrition and other farm level knowledge to expand your veterinary skills set – we’re just the team for you to work alongside..

We are based in the stunning Wairarapa, which provides a variety of recreational activities with close proximity to the Tararua and Ruahine ranges and extensive coastlines including the popular holiday destination Castlepoint.

With an above average salary package, a 4WD vehicle (with all clinical equipment), laptop and smartphone provided for professional and private use, and very affordable house pricing in a beautiful part of the country, we’d like to think that you’ll consider a role with us.
