Are you keen to step into a new role where your focus is mostly surgery and you spend your week doing what you love? We have a group of clinics looking for an in-house surgeon to refer to.  

  • Opportunity for you to grow our other vets’ surgical skills if you love to teach and mentor. 
  • Flexibility for this to be either a full-time or part-time role depending on what works for you. 
  • Location The clinic sits in the sunny Kapiti coast which offers a unique living experience close to the beaches and mountains, but close enough to Wellington for the city life. 

About the role:  

We have an exciting new opportunity for a Senior Vet with a special interest in surgery to join our team. Our well established, multi-vet Paraparaumu clinic has an experienced team with an incredible caring and positive culture who enjoy fast paced small animal practice.

We are looking for a rockstar vet helping to lead our clinics into the future. Your enthusiasm and passion for your patients and clients is important to us, and you must enjoy working as part of a team. 

You’ll also have: 

  • A recognised Bachelor of Veterinary Science or equivalent qualification 
  • ​​​​​​​Proficiency in all-round medicine and surgery in companion animal practice  
  • Special interest surgical skills e.g. orthopaedics  
  • Ideally you will have a certificate or membership in surgery, or be working towards achieving them (we can help with this!) 

Why join us? 

A generous salary reflective of your experience is just the tip of the iceberg. 

We also offer: 

  • MANZCVS membership scholarships available worth $10, 000 
  • ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Generous continuing education budget 
  • Generous staff discounts and subsidised health insurance
