About the role

RSPCA Victoria currently have multiple opportunities for experienced Vets to join our clinic team located in Epping, including casual/locum and full-time roles.

As a Vet with the RSPCA no two days are the same. In this role, you will experience working with a large and varied caseload, shelter medicine and small animal medicine, various routine and complex surgeries and a supportive team around you.

The clinic team of Vets and Vet Nursing staff work in a hospital which is fully computerised and well-equipped, including digital x-rays and iM3 dental.

To be successful in this position, you will need the following skills, experience, qualifications and licenses:

  • Victoria Veterinary surgeon registration with minimum of 2 years experience working as a Veterinarian
  • The capability to conduct simple to complex clinical consultations and surgical procedures independently
  • The ability and desire to coach/mentor less experienced Vets
