Veterinarian and Emergency Clinician

Veterinarian and Emergency Clinician

Are you someone who:

  • Loves to take on challenging cases and situations
  • Thrives on learning and improving skills
  • Loves to see those around you excel and grow

We are looking for Veterinarians who want to build their skills and abilities in a team environment focused on learning and enjoyment of your work.

JCUVet is the Clinical Small Animal Teaching Hospital for James Cook University in Townsville. We are focused on providing excellence in clinical training for veterinary students. We do this through involving and inspiring students in a full service Small Animal General Practice and Small Animal Referral Hospital, with internal medicine, surgery, anesthesia, emergency and critical care. We see clients and patients from across Queensland focusing particularly on Central and Northern Queensland.

This is a novel role aimed at providing a continually improving level of care for our patients, while building a varied, rewarding and enjoyable role for veterinary clinicians.  The position will involve rostered shifts of direct client and patient responsibility through our general practice, support of hospital care for our referral and intensive patients, and management of cases outside normal hospital opening hours.

The role is focused on a combination of roughly half day-time work and half night-time work on a generous rotation averaging 4 shifts every 10 days.

The truly amazing part of this role is that you will work an average of 35 hours per week plus 3 hours focused on study or training.  You will work closely with our employed senior clinicians and visiting specialists, giving great opportunity for you to build your skills.  This leaves plenty of time for family, friends and exploring the great outdoors in this extraordinary part of Australia!

If you want to move north with the rest, we would like to offer you:

  • A generous and competitive salary – up to $130,000 pa
  • 5 weeks holiday leave
  • 1 week paid study leave
  • $2500 per year support towards CPD
  • A predictable and structured roster
  • Relocation assistance – inter / intrastate
