The Role:

This is an exciting opportunity for a Veterinarian who has experience in a busy clinic environment and is looking to expand their special areas of interest. You will have the flexibility to opt for a Part Time or Full Time role, and we offer great work life balance, with no after hours work.

Our team is highly skilled and prides itself on providing the highest standard of care to its patients, we would like someone who enjoys sharing cases, and can provide guidance if required. This is a great opportunity to join a growing and progressive clinic, and to help shape our direction and standards of care. 

Our team:

Frank Samways is a purpose-built, modern facility located in North Melbourne, close to public transport  and Melbourne CBD.  In addition to caring for privately owned pets, the team at Frank Samways Vet Clinic occasionally look after stray animals that come in through our organisation The Lost Dogs’ Home. 

Our Veterinary team has a ‘see one, do one, teach one’ approach when it comes to learning new surgery techniques and we are always encouraging our Vets to bounce ideas off each other and to develop their special areas of interest.

We have a very close knit vet and nurse team, we have fun at work, laugh, joke and cry (not often) a lot, and bubble tea /junk food Friday's are a must!

  • Providing medical consultations and performing surgery in a timely manner, with regular slots during the day for case management and lab follow up
  • Surgery Vet will look after all in-patients and work with the nurse team leader to complete the days surgeries & procedures
  • Providing guidance and mentorship within the vet team when required

You will have:

  • Current registration with the Victorian Veterinary Board
