Opportunity for a qualified veterinarian with experience in equine and small animal clinical anaesthesia to work with a supportive team of vets, nurses and students in a leading veterinary facility.

Flexibility between two and five days per week, Monday to Friday, available immediately.

(HEO7) $58.48 to $65.40 per hour plus an employer contribution of 10% superannuation applies.

The Veterinary Health Centre (VHC) is located on the University of Adelaide’s Roseworthy Campus surrounded by great lifestyle opportunities including the Barossa Valley, beaches, sporting activities, benchmark schools and shopping facilities. 

We are seeking a qualified veterinarian with experience in anaesthesia to provide clinical anaesthesiology services for equine and small animal patients. Equine anaesthesia experience is essential for this role. We can offer considerable flexibility in this position to match prior experience. Out of hours work within this casual role is negotiable.

Providing anaesthesiology for large and small animal patients, both referral and first opinion, the position will suit someone with a strong interest and significant experience in clinical anaesthesia. Advanced training in anaesthesia is desirable but not essential.

You will enjoy access to modern, high-end equipment and facilities for both small animals and horses including fully equipped surgical theatres and sophisticated monitoring equipment, and support from a dedicated team of highly trained nurses.

The Veterinary Health Centre provides a clinical training environment for final year veterinary students working under the close supervision of experienced veterinary surgeons, nurses and support staff. You will have the opportunity to involve highly motivated final year veterinary students in clinical case management and, by providing students with additional learning opportunities where appropriate and demonstrating the highest standard of clinical and professional behaviour, you will be making an important contribution to the clinical education of the next generation of veterinarians.

To be successful you will need:

  • Veterinary qualification with eligibility to be registered as a veterinarian in South Australia.
  • Demonstrated experience in equine and small animal clinical anaesthesiology.  
  • Strong interpersonal skills and demonstrated ability to work collaboratively as a member of clinical teams.
  • Demonstrated high level written communication skills, including the ability to keep detailed, accurate medical records.
