Early Career Veterinarian – Mixed with strong Dairy Focus

Early Career Veterinarian – Mixed with strong Dairy Focus

North Canterbury Vets is a 4 clinic veterinary business located north of Christchurch. Our location in North Canterbury means we enjoy all the benefits of rural town living, with everything that Christchurch the ‘Garden City’ and Canterbury have to offer on our back doorstep. Close to the Southern Alps, lifestyle choices abound with a wide range of recreational pursuits, fishing, boating, tramping, climbing, and we are 2 hours away from some of the best snow skiing in the country, without the crowds.

Ideally we are looking to recruit a recently graduated veterinarian, with a strong focus on Dairy, starting January 2021.  We may also accept applications from New Graduates.  The location is Culverden where we have 11 Vets who are supported by a further 8 Vets at our other 3 clinics.

We are a mixed rural practice with Dairy, Sheep & Beef and Companion Animal being the main focus, so there is plenty of opportunity to grow your skills with the support of experienced staff.
We operate our own 24/7 after hours’ emergency service, and you will ease into the roster with support from our more experienced Team members.

We are looking for someone with great interpersonal skills to build relationships, passionate about Dairy and herd performance as well as being a great team player.
We have a proven track record of developing new graduates, and our team are more than willing to share their knowledge and skills to help you grow.
You will also be supported by our wider team of LA Technicians, Nurses, Animal Health Reps and Administration.

The successful candidate will be offered a competitive salary package, medical insurance, staff discount and purchasing privileges, a personalised training and development plan, generous CPD opportunities both internally and externally, and we can support an application to the Vet Bonding Scheme upon meeting the specified criteria as set by MPI.

If you are looking to kick start your new career in a supportive and friendly environment, then please email your cover letter and CV to me before close of business Friday 6th November 2020.
