Job Description

Southern Cross Vet Clinic

Do you love massages at work, enjoy the bottomless fruit bowl to boost your nutrition and weekly free food? While we offer all the tech that you would expect the most modern hospital to have*, just like you, there is more to our soul than just being a great vet……Do you want to work for a company that genuinely cares as much about work/life balance as you do? How about a management team that rewards you with weekends away and RAOK (random acts of kindness). Have you heard of ‘Doona Days’ – we invented these days because we know that sometimes you just need some ‘me time’.

*digital radiology with all studies interpreted by a Board Certified Veterinary Radiologist, 128 slice CT, Laparoscopy

Here is an awesome opportunity for a full time or part time vet to join our talented team working at our St Peters, Surry Hills and Bellevue Hills clinic

We’re family owned, we practice gold standard medicine and our clients are fantastic. 75% are insured!

Our team are incredibly welcoming, with most members of staff having been with us for many years, some from day one. As part of the package we are offering salary sacrificed gym memberships and regular massages.

We refer very little and have contracted surgeons who perform TTO’s, MPLs and other orthopaedics. There is an incredible opportunity to learn these orthopaedic skills with us.

Joining SCV means that you’ll be joining one of Australia’s most innovative veterinary clinics, where you’ll be nurtured to learn not only the best veterinary medicine but also to advance veterinary medicine and even have your name published on some papers. We have a unique partnership with the top human specialists in the areas of gastroenterology, radiation oncology, surgery and anaesthesia to name a few, the collaboration with whom is intellectually stimulating and fun!

We offer ultrasound, CT, digital x-ray and all the latest technology including Ligasure and Cayman surgical handpieces supported by a remarkable, well trained, team of nurses. Our nurses perform many clinical duties freeing up time for our Doctors to do what they really love – our nurses place IV cannulas, run bloods etc and the ratio of nurse: doctors is always high to ensure you have all the support you need.

Our strong commitment to laparoscopic desexing and minimally invasive surgery means you may never have to do a fat lab in heat spay again!

While we do a lot of surgery at St Peters, we invite medicine-oriented people to apply as we are also looking to grow our medicine case load as we move towards ASAVA Hospital of Excellence accreditation this year.

Full time hours are 38/week with some weekend work required, a very generous salary and other perks including

‘Weight gain Wednesday’ lunches provided by management
Fresh fruit each week
Generous CPD allowance and paid travel to conferences and events
Management that encourages your growth through training and development to champion you in your preferred speciality areas such as dentistry, ophthalmology or behaviour.
Open dog policy meaning we welcome you to bring your pets to work every day!
Flexibility in working hours / days to promote a healthy balance between career and life goals
Our vets are encouraged to practice mindfulness and engage in a lifestyle that promotes mental and emotional well-being like yoga, meditation, horse-riding etc.

Experienced Candidates:
You can expect a salary of between $100,000 and $120,000 per year, with the added incentive of a discretionary income scheme which would see you earning up to $160,000 a year.

New Grads:
New Graduates can expect a competitive salary, continuing education, ongoing training and support; plus the many other perks listed above.

About our team:
Our team members demonstrate passion in all their work and live and breathe our vision. They are bright minds; ready to challenge the norm, take risks and question traditional processes – whether that be surgically, medically or providing for an even better client experience. Flexible and inquisitive in nature, they are driven, motivated and thrive in our fast-paced environment.

We offer a nurturing environment and you will have the opportunity to really grow in this role. To complement our very generous remuneration package, we have additional benefits such as flexible working arrangements, and most importantly, a culture of support for our people.

Plenty of parking and close to transport makes it easy to get to work. Great schools are located near both clinics, so this role would also be convenient for mothers and fathers returning to work with children.

We are also visa approved so would welcome suitably qualified overseas vets, as well as vets who are looking to achieve permanent residence in Australia through sponsorship.

We are an equal opportunity employer and invite people from all backgrounds to apply.

Our unrivalled online presence, media attention and our ability to add rich content weekly, is unlike any other clinic (even where you are working right now!) and affords you an incredible opportunity to raise your profile as a veterinarian (if you wish). This adds immeasurable value to your future career and work.

Project HoPe
We also have our own charity called Project HoPe that looks after the surgical and medical needs of the companions of the homeless. The successful applicant will have a desire to use their heart, mind and skills to save the lives of the pets of Sydney’s least fortunate – those living rough on the streets.

This community we look after have often lost everything and the little heartbeat at their feet is all they have to wake up for in the morning.

To apply for this fantastic opportunity, please email your cover letter and CV to Nicola at [email protected]
