Pet Doctors Waihi are a mixed-practice clinic. In this role, you will be primarily working on the local farms with large animals (95% of the time), with cross over into small, companion animals when required (about 5% of the time). In addition, it is important that you have solid dairy experience. As Senior Vet, your responsibilities will include the development and supervision of your team members and assistance with operational activities, as well as being an advocate for patient wellbeing and working with high standards of care. This position is replacing our most Senior Vet, who was the previous owner of the clinic and is looking to cut back on hours.
The clinic is open from Monday to Friday, 8.30am – 5pm and we are closed on weekends. Given your expertise in large animals, you will be on the on-call emergency roster and reimbursed accordingly.
This is a full-time role, working 40 hours per week (Mon-Fri), with no regular weekend work.
A bit more about our team & clinic:
At our Waihi mixed animal practice, we have a mix of vets who work with either primarily with production or companion animals. We have 4 permanent, full-time vets, with the support of 3 vet nurses and 3 front-of-house staff, and are looking to expand our team and eventually replace our most Senior Vet.
We are situated in Waihi, which you can read more about below. Our clinic is fully equipped with full medical and surgical facilities and everything you need for diagnostics and treatment. We work well together and are searching for someone who wants to join our team and help us grow further.
Waihi – The Bay of Plenty, New Zealand:
Waihi is a fantastic location for production animals as we are mainly surrounded by farms. We are a 12-minute drive from one of the most popular holiday destinations in New Zealand (Waihi Beach), which has a 9km long, white sandy beach and an array of outdoor activities, including our famous Karangahake Gorge historic walk. We are just two hours from Auckland and a short trip to Tauranga, you’re not far from some of the largest cities in New Zealand.
