The ECC department is our largest department and provides both internal and external critical care, recovery, emergency and hospital services. With a strong team of experienced vets and nurses we are looking for someone to help lead, support and grow our service.

It is a full-time position that comes with the usual benefits associated with such a role, including study leave, CE allowance, vacation, sick leave, parental leave, superannuation etc.

The salary is negotiable, depending on experience and qualifications. This along with a substantial sign-up bonus and relocation allowance if moving interstate.

Our ideal candidate will have the following skills and expertise
• A veterinary degree registerable in South Australia
• ANZCVSC Membership in Emergency and Critical Care or equivalent
• Extensive experience in the ECC space
• Currently active in practice
• Comfortable and proficient with typical ECC surgeries and procedures
• A strong desire to provide leadership and take on a mentoring role
• Constantly looking to update yourself in the profession
• Create good working relationships both within and outside the clinic
• Exceptional customer service & communication skills
• Exceptional organisation and time management skills

What we offer you
• A varied and interesting role
• A strong support network of very knowledgeable and experienced staff
• Training & professional development opportunities
• An opportunity to help build and support a strong Emergency and Critical Care Team

You are looking for an opportunity to advance your career and lead a group of talented professionals while heading up a growing emergency department, then we want to hear from you. You feel that you have strong clinical skills and want to grow your management abilities; we can help with support and mentorship in this aspect of the role.

Applications will be received via email only and should include a cover letter along with your resume. Please include the contact details of two professional referees and one personal referee. Short-listed applicants will be contacted by phone.
