Veterinarian and Emergency Clinician

Are you looking to fast track your veterinary career?  Are you enjoying after hour emergencies but would prefer more support and guidance?  If you have been thinking about making the move into Emergency and Critical Care, now could be your time!

Due to a continued demand for our services, we are looking to appoint one more full time Veterinarian to join our team of 10 permanent clinicians.  The ideal candidate will bring passion and enthusiasm to the role and will deliver a high level of care for our patients in a positive team environment.

It’s hard to find a role which can transition you into ECC, and where you feel truly supported.  At JCUVet, there will always be someone who has your back and senior clinicians and specialists you can call upon.  We will guide you through directed training, tutorials, and mentored training within your work hours.  AND…. if down the track your goal is to achieve ECC membership, we will mentor you through this.

Our ideal candidate will meet the following requirements:

  • Would have at least two years’ experience in a busy general practice; or
  • Has completed a 12-month internship in a multidisciplinary practice.

Working under the guidance of our ECC Specialist, Team Leader and Senior Clinician, your roster will enable you to work closely with senior clinicians and specialists to further develop your skills and knowledge.  You would start consulting while you adjust to the environment and will undertake monthly tutorials with senior clinicians to focus on expanding your knowledge. Once comfortable, you would progress to hospital shifts with an increase in caseload management.

We have carefully structured this role to balance day, night and swing shifts on a lifestyle roster which provides ample diversity, and with input from our team.  Shifts involve a combination of hospital and consulting shifts. Recovery time is factored in, and this leaves plenty of time for family, friends and exploring the great outdoors in this extraordinary part of Australia!

Townsville is perfectly positioned within relative proximity to Cairns and the Whitsundays and a short flight to southern cities.  We live in a maturing city with a world class stadium, choice of dining and entertainment options, quality schools and some of the best hiking, fishing, snorkeling, diving, and boating in Australia.  Not to mention no gridlock traffic and affordable housing options all within a short drive of work.  See: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ozn5AfVdPf0

If you are ready to transition into ECC, we would like to offer you:

  • A competitive salary
  • 5 weeks holiday leave
  • 1-week paid study leave
  • $2500 per year support towards CPD
  • A predictable and structured roster
  • Structured and on the job learning opportunities
  • Relocation assistance – inter / intrastate

If this sounds like an opportunity you would like to explore further, please contact us for a confidential discussion or we can arrange for you to come and see our hospital and meet the team.  Otherwise, please send your application to:
