We seek an experienced veterinary surgeon to join 10 colleagues in our rapidly expanding small animal practice.  Swan Valley Vet Centre is a dynamic practice based on an extensive rural campus on the outskirts of the city of Perth.  Our hospital provides excellent facilities including multiple operating theatres and dental tables, in-house laboratory, ultrasound, endoscopy, CT and multiple DR x-ray units.  We work with 35 nursing and support staff, including CT technicians.

We believe in working. hard to ensure excellent clinical care of our patients at a cost which their owners can afford.  The caseload is large and varied, and includes an extensive advanced reproduction component.

We believe that behaviour is central to animal welfare, so all our staff are Fear Free trained and the successful applicant will also be required to undertake this training.  We offer a range of training classes with qualified trainers at our floodlit indoor and outdoor training areas.  These are complemented by our range of "unusual" facilities which include dog. swimming pool, agility park, the Sniffari Garden and the wonderful Dog's Breakfast Cafe which make us an animal-destination not just. a. vet clinic.

We are committed to on-going training of all our staff.  We will actively support any area of clinical special interest.  We have a well developed new graduate training program which has a regular intake.

The clinic is located amongst the vineyards of the Swan Valley, 30 minutes drive from the centre of metropolitan Perth.  We are 20 minutes drive from some of the best beaches in the world and undoubtedly the best kite-surfing available anywhere.  It is difficult to adequately describe the high quality of lifestyle available in Perth.  Ambient temperature is 20-35C most of the year, a range of excellent schooling is available within a few minutes drive of the practice, and housing is affordable and of excellent quality.

We are an approved Business Sponsor for expedited visa applications, and we offer an excellent remuneration package including assistance with moving expenses and 3 months initial accommodation.
