  • Do you thrive in a busy environment and varied caseload?
  • Are you looking to work with a team of experienced vets?
  • Do you have special areas of interest you'd like to develop?

Takanini Veterinary Associates is a well-established, 5 FTE vet community practice that provides high-level veterinary medicine. We are looking for a full-time employee.

This position is ideal for a hands-on vet that wants to settle down in a practice, be mentored to grow their skill set from routine general practice cases and surgery, to more complex and rewarding surgeries and medical services.

This clinic is a place where veterinarians can develop their own special interests and for those looking towards a future in part practice-share ownership, this option is available for the right team member. Ideally you will start in January 2021 or sooner for the right candidate.

The practice is purpose-built, with 3 spacious consulting rooms, 2 surgical suites, treatment/dental area, digital X-ray, high-end ultrasound and endoscopic imaging, in-house lab for blood work. Special interests are broad and varied spanning from soft tissue surgery, orthopaedics TTA/TTO, stem-cell therapy, chemotherapy, reproductive AI and surgical AI, and dentistry.

Week days opening hours are 8am-7pm, with an average shift length of 8 hours. Weekend work is split between the team with 1 in 5 weekends with a day in lieu for the following week giving you a 3-day weekend.

Most emergency cases are referred to a near-by 24-hr facility, however, there will be occasional (reproductive) procedures after-hours where vets are on-call. 

The ideal candidate

The successful applicant will be rewarded with

  • Excellent remuneration with employee pay-reviews to reward and value staff contributions
  • A supportive, collaborative work environment with mentorship
  • VetEducation and VIN membership
  • 4 weeks annual leave, KiwiSaver for NZ citizens
  • CE allowance and paid study leave, support to undertake memberships
