Veterinarian Locums

Veterinarian Locum

  • Generous rates and conditions
  • Animal hospital and referral services
  • Share your skills and knowledge

JCUVet is the clinical Small Animal Teaching Hospital for the JCU School of Veterinary Science. We provide excellence in clinical training for veterinary students.  We do this through involving students in a full-service Small Animal General Practice and Referral Hospital, including internal medicine, surgery, anesthesia, emergency and critical care.

We are looking to secure the services of veterinarian locums, either on an ongoing basis or for defined blocks of time.

You might be a veterinarian who is travelling around or retired and looking for stimulation and additional income.  You might otherwise like the idea of travelling to Townsville and exploring this great region in your spare time.  You might already live here and see this as a great opportunity to share and extend your skills and knowledge and top up your income.  You might even like to trial a mix of academia and clinical practice.

Short term locum opportunities exist across various disciplines including general practice.  This might involve you travelling to Townsville to work a block(s) of time as agreed.  In this instance we pay flights and offer accommodation and hire car reimbursement.

Longer term general practice locum opportunities exist for locally based GP Veterinarians to assist us in supporting our patients in the Townsville and surrounding communities by working any of the following arrangements:

  • day shifts 7.30am to 5.30pm;
  • night shifts 6.00pm to 7.30am on call from your home;
  • one weekend per month on call Friday night to Monday morning home/onsite;
  • Saturday GP consults 7.30am to 1.30pm; or
  • Other arrangements that meet business needs

This is a great opportunity to dip your toe into the workings of a clinical teaching environment, share your specific knowledge with others and work closely with visiting specialists.  It’s also a very attractive financial offering.  You will be supported by experienced nurses and our Hospital Director.

If you would like to have a no-obligation discussion about these opportunities, please contact:
