Job description


Would you like to work in a new purpose built Vet Hospital recently re-accredited as a "Hospital of Excellence”, with a vast array of modern equipment, in a city voted in Lonely Planet’s top 10 in the world, surrounded by superb beaches, cafes and nightlife?

Most importantly you would join a very easy going team with a high priority on work flexibility and a great work-life balance. The best way to judge the culture of a practice is to look at the staff turnover and the only reason we rehire is due to either retirement or pregnancy (any cures?).

Due to practice growth an exciting opportunity has become available at out client's Hospital for a full time small animal vet to join their team of 6 experienced vets supported by 17 nursing staff.

They encourage and provide opportunities for continued education both professionally and personal self development, including one week study leave plus 4 weeks annual holiday. NO AFTERHOURS, closed public holidays, open Saturday's (position requires working 1 in 4) & also open Sunday's, but this shift is currently filled. 4 1/2 days Monday to Friday available.

Their purpose built Hospital has 4 consulting rooms, separate cat and dog wards (sound proof glass), separate imaging rooms for ultrasound and digital radiography, as well as dental x-ray. Sunlit treatment room, separate lab and pharmacy. We also have a small branch clinic next to the beach at Stockton as well as Georgetown.

A "Hospital of Excellence” is the highest accreditation for Vet Hospitals; for practices that achieve the highest level of quality health care and practice management in innovative, state-of-the-art hospital facilities. We would expect the successful applicant to meet these expectations.

We are looking for
An enthusiastic, social person who likes to get to know their clientele, being able to build and foster relationships.
An advocate for the pets, able to provide the gold standard treatment.
Ability to work with and build a great positive team environment ensuring team work is the norm
Generous wage depending on experience and skill level.
The Central Coast is surrounded by national park and beautiful beaches and provides the perfect lifestyle for those who love the outdoors. We're only 50 minutes to Sydney and just over an hour to the Hunter Valley wineries.
