Who we are looking for:

  • You will have a tertiary qualification in a relevant technical discipline and/or a minimum of two years’ experience in a laboratory environment.
  • You will have a strong understanding of all the essentials; a broad knowledge of multi-disciplinary routine diagnostic pathology testing procedures, and a demonstrated ability to perform routine and potentially complex diagnostic tests while ensuring adherence to standard procedures, policies and practices.
  • Experience in Microbiology and/or Serology is highly desired.
  • You will be computer savvy and have exposure to a Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS).
  • You will have the ability to learn new systems and processes quickly.
  • Intermediate Microsoft Excel skills are highly desired.
  • You will be confident operating under pressure and time constraints without compromising on quality control procedures and practices.

What we can offer?

  • In return, this role offers an opportunity to join a global market leader that continues to reinvest $100M per annum into research and development devoted to diagnostics. 
  • Ongoing training and investment in its people, including product training and professional skill development.
  • Ongoing health and wellness activities
  • Work within a collaborative team environment
  • An opportunity for you to make your mark alongside the New Zealand business, where we are focused and passionate about the wellbeing and health of pets, people and livestock.
  • A strong supportive infrastructure and assistance where needed, from a highly respected and valued, laboratory team.
  • A close-knit team environment where there is a tendency to celebrate Fridays with morning tea, and a sense of humour is appreciated.


We’re proud of the work we do, because our work matters. An innovation leader in every industry we serve, we follow our Purpose and Guiding Principles to help pet owners worldwide keep their companion animals healthy and happy, to ensure safe drinking water for billions, and to help farmers protect livestock and poultry from disease.
