As well as empathy and a focus on animal wellness, you’ll have a real flair for working with our clients and looking after them as well as their animals. While you can expect some on-call work for emergencies, you’ll also find that we’re fair and reasonable about it, and still make sure you have that all-important work-life balance.

Our Alexandra and Cromwell clinics collaborate with the other local VetEnt clinics in the region and you also benefit from the ability to leverage the collegial networks and support structures from across the national company, meaning you have the benefit of a wider team, while focussing on growing your own part of the business.

In return, you’ll find an array of career advancement opportunities including training support, CPD, clinic exchanges and involvement in our subsidiary operations such as FarmCare, VetEnt Research and PureMilk. You’ll have access to the latest technology in a well-equipped practice and a combined pool of knowledge from a network of supportive and collaborative vets all over New Zealand.

All the scenery and outdoor sports that the South Island is famous for are outside your door – and you’ll be welcomed into a friendly small-town community with a relaxed lifestyle. So it’s definitely a role that will allow you to do your best vet work.

If all this sounds like you, you’re keen to lead a small team, and you meet the conditions of the Veterinary Council of New Zealand, you could well have found your next career move.
