Job Details: Do you want to work somewhere where you feel heard? Where you have the freedom to practice how you want to? Where you have as much or as little mentoring as you need/want?

This is a privately owned mixed/small animal clinic and want to find a like-minded small animal veterinarian to join their warm, welcoming, talented and highly collaborative team. Experience genuine clinical freedom in a highly supportive environment with all the resources you need to confidently deliver best-practice veterinary care. Enjoy the close relationships they have developed with highly compliant customers and look forward to the prospect of a genuine work-life balance. They have an excellent reputation for providing quality veterinary care with compassion and understanding, and have a loyal and compliant client base that spans generations in many cases. Their core values center around “Experience & Excellence in Veterinary Care”. The clinic is well-resourced and well-presented with a spacious interior. They have a vast array of modern diagnostic and surgical equipment, as well as easy to use veterinary management software and plenty of onsite parking. They appreciate all of their team members’ feedback and are not resistant to change. What really sets them apart, is your new fellow team members. From reception to nursing to the veterinarian team, they are committed to supporting each other and providing the best possible patient care. Skills and experience are shared with enthusiasm and new ideas and approaches are actively encouraged.

As a veterinary professional, you already have a pretty good idea as to the day-to-day requirements of being a talented veterinarian. Here are some of the key skills that they are seeking that are particularly relevant to this opportunity:

  • Competency in routine surgery (desexings, lump removals, dentals)
  • Confidence in physical exams, performing and interpreting diagnostic tests and formulating a treatment plan
  • Some experience in more advanced soft tissue surgery (not essential, can be taught), any orthopaedic skills would be a bonus

An experienced vet will have the opportunity to share their experience and skills across their team while receiving additional benefits. Less experienced will enjoy exceptional support and guidance from this highly experienced team, including a dedicated career plan in line with your aspirations (if wanted/needed). Your qualifications, expertise and experience are certainly essential to your success in this role and it is expected that you will demonstrate talent and skill as a small animal veterinarian.

In addition, these qualities are important to them:

  • Effective communication
  • Compassionate
  • Sound decision-making
  • Honesty & Integrity

Some say Dapto on the foreshore of Lake Illawarra, and nearby Wollongong, is the gateway to the beautiful South Coast of NSW where a myriad of beaches and coastal villages await. There is an ideal balance of country charm and urban resources with great schools, medical resources and community facilities and plenty of shopping from boutiques to department stores within a few minutes drive. With Sydney just ninety minutes North, and ample national parks and waterways at hand, this is an ideal location for individuals, couples and families alike.
