Salary: Competitive salary, DOE

Package: Competitive salary, paid AVA membership, paid volunteer leave and a package that includes a company-maintained vehicle are some of the perks.

Type of Work: Pigologist/Farm Animal Vet 

Job Details:  This clinic is seeking a veterinarian ideally with 2+ years pig consultancy experience to join their swine services team. This is an incredible opportunity for an experienced vet to develop their career in swine consultancy.  The right candidate with a strong background in mixed practice services will also be considered. If you are a recently graduated veterinarian with a genuine interest in pigs, we encourage you to contact us.

Based in Bendigo, Central Victoria and part of a friendly national team of specialised pig veterinarians, you will provide preventative health programs, disease investigation, production data analysis and biosecurity auditing services to a loyal progressive client base. You will learn from those around you (they take two vets on many farm visits) in addition to other professional development opportunities including undertaking a competency-based training program and spending time with industry leaders, both in Australia and internationally. You will also have the opportunity to attend industry events and trade shows to further improve your knowledge of swine health and production and to increase your industry networking opportunities.

You will be encouraged to bring new ideas and actively contribute to the future development of the services and products that the pig team will provide to clients into the future. You will have plenty of tools to play with to investigate acute and chronic disease problems and put preventative programs in place. If you have a passion for analysing data, applied research or developing new tools, you will be provided with opportunities to develop these areas. You will travel away from home occasionally and will get to experience many parts of the Australian countryside and other pig areas of the world.

Having worked flat out during your working week, you would most likely be drawn to the extensive local wine region in your down time. You will get a five-day week, most likely having also experienced a new wine region, you will get plenty of time to rejuvenate and explore the glorious country further. Of course, a trip or two back home or to another country to expand your knowledge further is also a must. Living in Bendigo is great! Vibrant lifestyle with plenty of wineries, cafes, restaurants, sporting facilities, cycling trails, a strong arts and cultural scene, great schools for any kids and close enough to drive to ‘the big smoke’ in Melbourne to get your concrete jungle fix.

They are an approved sponsor for overseas candidates and will assist with visa and relocation.
