“Providing Lifelong Service, Expertise and Compassion”

We have a rare opening for a Veterinarian to join our well-established companion animal practice.

This is an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic clinician to join our highly regarded and experienced team who pride themselves on providing outstanding pet care services.

We are a busy clinic of six veterinarians each with complementary areas of special interest, seven skilled and qualified nurses and a friendly and efficient administration team.

Our premises are purpose built, well managed and contain a comprehensive arsenal of up-to-date equipment. This includes the IDEXX in-house laboratory suite & SediVue, iM3 dentistry with radiography & Vet-tome, a full orthopaedic kit, ultrasound and digital radiography, endoscopes, ECG, tonopen, a range of monitors, fluid pumps and warmers, syringe pumps, and Smartflow patient management.

Plans to develop and extend the centre to accommodate our growth are in progress.

The clinic is open from Monday to Saturday and is a member of the Christchurch After-hours Veterinary Centre.

We are an integral part of our local community because our staff strive to form exceptional client relationships and always ensure that patient care is paramount.

We encourage all staff to pursue professional development both in-house and externally. We are able to offer a great work-life balance and an extensive range of benefits, subscriptions and real collegial support.

The ideal candidate will be a dedicated team player, be proficient in general surgery and confident with everyday consultations, be willing to provide and receive support from other staff and provide exceptional patient care.

An enjoyment of home baking would be useful together with a good sense of humour!

Please see our website, ‘clinic tour’ and Facebook page for more about us.

If you would like to join a growing practice with a great team environment please get in contact for a confidential chat, or send a covering letter and curriculum vitae and where possible authorised referee contact details.

All applications will be treated in strict confidence.
