We are an independent family owned mixed practice in the best part of Australia!

We are looking for a Locum veterinarian starting immediately - 3+ years experience and a good sense of humour preferred! Our new team member will enjoy being part of a stable and experienced team, practicing and developing great standards of care and customer service. We need someone who wants to be part of a progressive mixed practice, striving to improve and develop ourselves and the lives of our clients, through their work.

Wauchope Vets are looking for a great Vet to join our team. The workload is 85% small animals with about 15% large animal work and with plenty of scope to pursue other areas of interest within the practice. The small animal workload is very broad. Several of our previous employees have gone onto further studies and we are very proud that none have left the profession!

We have recently renovated and refurbished our practice (completed by end of January 2017) to improve our facilities, work flow and provide a better clinical and work environment for us all.

We are looking for a motivated Vet to complement our team. A Veterinary degree registrable in NSW is essential, as well as a great sense of humour, a confident and positive attitude and excellent communication skills. We expect you to want to make a difference, to learn and improve yourself, as well as participate and contribute in our meetings, training and development. You must be a team player.

Our large animal component is mainly cattle, with several dairy’s in our area and small hobby farms, with mostly small ruminants. We no longer do any equine work, after entering into agreement with one of our previous associates, who now does that full time. An interest or previous experience in cattle work would be a great advantage, but not essential.

We have an after-hours and weekend sharing arrangement with two neighbouring practices, to help us enjoy life in this fantastic part of the world. We have a very capable and well-trained nursing team, as well as experienced Vets and a full-time practice manager available to support, develop and help you enjoy our profession. Wages will be above AVA award and in line with experience and the skills you bring along. CPD is actively supported and encouraged and some provided in-house.
