Tararua Vet Services Dannevirke is looking for a new vet! Come experience what it is like to work amongst a passionate, progressive, fast growing practice in what is arguably some of the best-mixed practice New Zealand has to offer.

The large animal caseload is largely Dairy. Dairy herds range in size from 200-2000cows, owner-operator to large corporates. We also service a number of sheep and beef clientele and the odd equine. The busy small animal hospital services a wide variety of animals from pets to working dogs as well as pet lambs, chickens and the occasional wildlife.

Tararua Vets Dannevirke cover an area from the base of the Ruahine Ranges to the coast, to Woodville and Central Hawkes Bay. Offering not only a varied caseload but a varied view on your daily duties. Dannevirke has a great central location and offers a vast opportunity for outdoor activities such as hunting, tramping, multisport and fishing; a multitude of community groups, clubs and sporting teams, and has all the amenities you need. We are only a short drive from Palmerston Norths airport, the ski fields of the central plateau and the ferry terminal gateway to the South Island. We may be biased, but we think this region is a well-kept secret!

Applicants with a few years experience under their belt are encouraged, although all applications will be considered. This role could suit someone wanting mixed practice or alternatively someone with a strong interest in dairy or sheep and beef. This could be an exciting opportunity for someone with an interest in animal health planning and proactive medicine. Fresh new ideas and an innovative approach would be encouraged.

You will be joining a team of four full-time vets who are dedicated to providing a quality service to our clients and passionate about a healthy work-life balance. The large animal team is headed by a vet with 30years experience in the area and the small animal hospital by a clinician with more than 10 years experience. With an efficient team of support staff, this is a great opportunity to be a part of a tight-knit, cohesive team. Furthermore, we operate as part of the Totally Vets Group. There is vast expertise within the business, spread throughout the Manawatu and Tararua regions, offering great opportunities for collegial learning and continuing education.

The on-call roster is 1 in 5 and you will be supplied with a Toyota Hilux, cellphone, laptop, workwear and equipment. To find out more or come and meet the team please send a CV and cover letter to:

Amanda Bills, Practice Manager
