Our Approach

Our clinic is part National Veterinary Care (NVC), a group of 65 clinics located across Australia and New Zealand. What makes us different

National Veterinary Care believes that if we put our people first, the results will follow. We achieve this through having an highly qualified Veterinary Surgeon as our General Manager, who keeps our clinical standards at the forefront of business decisions. We achieve it through our Veterinary Training Centre – industry firsts where we offer practical CPD in everything from behaviour through to orthopaedic surgery – so that you have the skills and confidence to care for every pet who comes through your clinic doors.

We empower our Lead Vets to run their clinics the way they see fit, providing admin support where needed. We don't re-brand our clinics. We empower our Graduates to achieve their goals through mentoring, internships and hands on workshops. We empower our Nurses to support their teams through upskilling and team consulting. Our scale allows us to ensure our clinics are well equipped and maintained, but we still want each individual clinic to have their own personality in their communities. Our Wellness Program allows you to teach your clients about preventative healthcare and build lasting relationships.

This is a fantastic opportunity to be a part of a strong network that is known for putting standards of care first. If this opportunity is for you, we would love to hear from you! Please contact Shanda Woods, Recruitment Coordinator, via  or +61 407 300 263 for a confidential discussion.
