Vet Nurses - have you considered locuming? If so, have we got a deal for you!

We have locum positions in various clinics across Auckland - ranging from one day assignments through to extended parental leave cover. 

From the North Shore to the Bombays, wayyyy out West to the East and everywhere in between.  

If you're looking for:

  • variety
  • lifestyle (want school holidays off? not a problem!)
  • expansion of your skills
  • the opportunity to go to work and know you made a difference

then we'd love to hear from you!

When you're a VetStaff locum you're guaranteed:

  • respect - our clients looooove our locums 
  • insurance cover - every time you're on a VetStaff assignment you're covered under our multiple insurance policies

  • Great customer service focus & attitude
  • Broad and varied nursing skills 
  • Calm and unflappable under pressure
  • Legal requirement to work in New Zealand

Being a locum isn't for everyone - there are ups and downs - but it is exciting and interesting as you get to meet a huge variety of people, patients, colleagues and clinics.
