Veterinarian Fixed-Term Contract

Job No: NVC954
Location: Dayboro

Old Mill Animal Hospital is located in Dayboro, in the Moreton Bay Region of Queensland, Australia. Just 46 kilometres from North-West Brisbane., Dayboro is a picturesque town with local, country charm yet close enough to the city so you are not missing out. Enjoy coffee and a snack at one of the charming family owned cafes, see some local art in the Dayboro Art Gallery and walk down the heritage trail for a fun day out. For the nature lovers, there are several bush walking tracks to discover through scribbly gum and eucalyptus trees overlooking the Somerset Dam. If the countryside is calling your name, this role is perfect for you!

Old Mill Animal Hospital is a one-stop, full-service pet health facility, built in and around Dayboro's historic old sawmill building. Transformed into a small animal clinic in 2005, and an elite mixed animal hospital over subsequent years, the 'Old Mill' is a true symbol of old meeting new. The state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment and luxurious animal accommodation is in contrast to the vintage charm of the rustic building and the familiar warmth of the animal care team. From the moment you walk in, you are greeted with that country kindness. We are committed to providing our clients with the highest level of professional and compassionate veterinary service.

We are currently seeking an experienced Part-time Veterinarian for a 10 month Fixed-Term contract commencing mid-late June. The successful applicant will be required to work an average of 30 hours per week which includes every second Saturday.

  • Continuing education allowance and study leave for annum
  • Access to one of the strongest networks of veterinary professionals
  • Endless opportunities with the possibility of working across any one of our NVC clinics in Australia and New Zealand.

What you can offer us:

  • BVSc or equivalent, and registration to practice in Queensland
  • An experienced and confident Veterinarian with at least 3 years’ practical experience
