Mixed Practice Veterinarians

An exciting new opportunity for Mixed Practice Veterinarians!

North Canterbury Veterinary Clinics is a 4 clinic practice located North of Christchurch. Our location in North Canterbury means we enjoy all the benefits of rural town living, with everything that Christchurch 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 1 hour away from some of the best skiing in the country, without the crowds. Should you have the need to recover from these outdoor pursuits the Hanmer Springs geothermal resort or Kaikoura, will cater for your every need.

We wish to invite Veterinarians with a passion and interest in working in mixed practice to join our expanding team!  Currently NZ is experiencing a huge growth in Sheep, Beef and Deer farming productions.  This revenue has created opportunities for our farmers, which has increased farmer demand for additional Veterinary services and advice.

We can offer full time roles for either permanent or fixed term positions for the right candidates, which will be based at either our Waikari or Culverden Clinics.  So why not take the opportunity to come and experience working amongst forward thinking and progressive farmers!
We currently have 19 vets employed throughout the 4 clinics with a variety of skills and experience.  The roles offer plenty of scope to develop your skills with support, not only with Sheep and Beef, but also Dairy, Deer, Equine and Companion Animals.

The successful applicant would be working alongside a great team of qualified support staff, experienced Veterinarians, dedicated Nurses, Large Animal Technicians, Animal Health Representatives, Business Manager and HR Manager.
A real focus on quality service, dedicated care of the patient, teamwork and fun exists in this practice.

We will offer an innovative and competitive salary package to the successful candidate including a contribution to your relocation costs.
