We are Blue Mountains Animal Health, an On-Call After Hours small animal clinic servicing the Upper Mountains area. Located in the charming village of Leura, just 90 minutes from Sydney CBD.
We are looking for casual Vets who might fancy a weekend getaway in the mountains, on a short term or ongoing basis. Work a single random weekend, or work every weekend for a month! We would even love it if you were keen to work a regular weekend of 1, 2, or even 3 in 4! This position is highly customisable to suit the unique needs of someone interested in maximising their work life balance.
This is a sole-charge position with an experienced nurse always on call. The nurse is on the premises during the day to help with inpatients and is available to transport critical cases to a 24hours facility if required. The caseload is very manageable for one on-call vet (average 5-6 consults per weekend and 1-2 hospital cases). Back-up is available from the local referring veterinarians where necessary.
Remuneration includes a set wage as well as the use of a private apartment and a car for the duration of your stay. If additional work is desired then weekday on call shifts are available or we can help organise day shifts at one of the local clinics.
The Blue Mountains is home to some of Australia’s best bushwalking, canyoning and climbing as well as many good restaurants, shops, mountain bike and horse riding trails. It is well serviced by rail and road allowing easy access to Sydney and the surrounding area.
