Full/part time position and locum position available 

Do you enjoy water sports like surfing, Mountain biking or skiing/snowboarding? A great job opportunity awaits in a progressive, purpose-built clinic in Mount Maunganui in Tauranga.

Tauranga is a bustling city in the Bay of Plenty Region centrally located n the heart of the North Island with some of NZ's top beaches, it’s only a 2.5 hour drive to Auckland, it's close to the Rotorua lakes and a 3.5 hour drive to the ski fields. The is position available is at our Mount Maunganui branch, located only a 10 minute stroll to NZ's best known surf beach.

Koru Vets is a progressive 4 vet, multi clinic setup. Both clinics are purpose built and are the most spacious small-animal clinics in the Bay of Plenty region allowing for multiple consulting rooms, operating theatres and spacious animal accommodation in separate cat and dog wards.

New graduates are welcome to apply, in fact we are especially accustomed to train new graduates who learn twice as fast in half the time compared to most other clinks who tend to leave new graduates to their own devices. Joerg, the owner and senior vet particularly enjoys training new graduates and building up their medical and surgical and general confidence by working together through each new surgical and medical case for the first time, following a textbook approach from day one.

  • Both clinics are equipped to state-of-the art level with excellent facilities to include latest Wi-Fi DR X-ray, state of the art ultrasound, in-house biochemistry and haematology, endoscopy, video otoscopy, e.g., tonometry, the list goes on.
  • We are non-corporate, low volume – high value clinic with excellent support staff ratio. Our knowledgeable and well-trained nurses and vet techs triage and assist during consultations and are versed in taking blood samples, intravenous injections, taking x-rays and carry out laboratory procedures, but also provide cost estimates to customers. This lack of distraction allows you to concentrate on what you are doing best, to fully work up cases to reach a diagnosis and to concentrate on performing medical and surgical procedures.
  • We are able to carry out most advanced soft tissue and orthopaedic procedures in-house, apart from spinal surgery.
  • Our cloud-based veterinary software from the US is the most advanced on the market today and is unique (in NZ) to our clinic allowing for super-efficient communication with customers and amongst the staff.
  • The after/ hours service is shared equally and low volume. The nurses take the calls and only disturb the vet when a patient comes into the clinic, which does not happen very often.
  • 40 hours per week, No OOH, 1:3 Saturdays with a day off in lieu
  • above average remuneration
  • $5000 relocation allowance
  • Last, but not least, we have very good team dynamics, the clinic organises and pays regular outings to the restaurant, and we have weekly yoga sessions!
