Career Opportunity

Senior Production Animal Veterinarian in Gisborne

Are you an experienced Production Animal Veterinarian or Mixed Veterinarian looking for a fulfilling role in a privately owned practice?  Make this the next step in your career, where you can continue to grow your clinical and management skills.  Come to sunny Gisborne where you will enjoy a relaxed lifestyle and endless opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors.

Eastland Vets is a privately owned mixed animal practice with a main clinic located in Gisborne and a branch clinic in Wairoa.  We cover a large geographical area, servicing clients throughout the Gisborne and Eastland region.  We have cemented lasting client relationships over the past 30+ years and pride ourselves on providing professional animal healthcare. 

Our staff work at a high skill level, and deal with a varied and interesting caseload.  We rise to the challenge when we are busy and make a point of having fun while at work.  Teamwork is one of our core values.

This leadership position in the Production Animal team would suit an enthusiastic, hardworking vet with interests in herd health and disease prevention.  While sheep and beef cattle will make up the majority of your caseload; horses, deer, and some working dogs will be included.  Previous experience in a team leadership role would be preferable, but all applications will be considered. 

The ideal candidate would be comfortable dealing with companion animal after-hours emergency cases.  Weeknight after hours duties are shared with the two other Gisborne vet clinics (Monday to Thursday evenings) on a 2 weeks on/4 weeks off basis.  Weekend duties (Friday to Monday) are currently 1:6 weekends. 

Remuneration will include a competitive salary, vehicle, cellphone, laptop, and NZVA membership and Annual Practising Certificate fees paid.  For the right candidate, progression to partnership is available.

All applicants will need to hold a current NZ work visa and registration with the VCNZ.  For enquiries, please email Natalie Smith or call (06) 867 9405.
