Veterinarian – Full Time Vacancy

START DATE: September 2024

Maleny Veterinary Services is a family-owned mixed practice located in the hinterland of the Sunshine Coast. We are spoilt with lovely clients, gorgeous countryside and a great proximity to both Brisbane and the beaches of the Sunshine Coast.

We are an independent, well-established and highly respected practice with clients comprised of companion animals (80%) plus a variety of large animal work including cattle, alpacas, pigs, sheep and horses.

Our team is a friendly bunch of 22ish staff members including eight vets, ten super-nurses and an awesome support crew. Our practice philosophy is one of providing outstanding, old-fashioned service coupled with the pursuit of excellence in what we do. We look after each other, knowing that without a strong team, we can’t do our job well.

With one of our vets heading off on new travel adventures from October this year, we are seeking a full time veterinarian to join the team. Your roster will comprise a 38 hour (four day) week including one weekend in four. After hours on-call responsibilities are shared between the vets, approximately one night per week or 52 total in a year.

The remuneration package and benefits are negotiable, dependent on experience. As a guide, we pay a competitive base salary plus super, on-call and laundry allowances, after-hours payments (either as overtime or 50% billed professional fees), annual bonuses, plus a continuing education allowance of $2500 per year. The annual holiday allowance is four weeks, with an additional week of paid study leave per year after your first year of employment with us.

The work environment is open, friendly and supportive and veterinarians are encouraged to discuss cases with each other whenever possible. We strive to practise the highest quality medicine and surgery and there is ample scope for veterinarians to develop their skills and special interests.

Equipment includes dental machines, ultrasound, in-house IDEXX lab, Vetscan Imagyst, tonometer, etc. The relative proximity to Sunshine Coast also allows referral to specialist centres when required.

We’re a particularly good-humoured, tenacious bunch and there are days that we forget that what we’re doing is supposed to be ‘work’. But don’t just take our word for it – we encourage applicants to speak to the vets
currently working here to discuss their experiences!

If you share our philosophy and dedication to animal care, have great communication and organisation skills AND a ridiculous sense of humour, we look forward to hearing from you. Please send your resume to our Practice Manager Amanda Fea at
