Are you ready to move your EQUINE VET career to the next level?
We're looking for an EQUINE VET to LEAD this busy Mixed Practice Clinic's EQUINE SERVICES TEAM.
Taupo is the home of the National Equestrian Centre which means there are frequent competitions and training days which bring in large numbers of horses to the district.

The client base is predominately sport horses with a busy breeding season and a steady flow of pre-purchase work.

There's nothing boring about this job or this clinic.

The team believes in working hard together as well as having a great time together outside of work at social events - how does fishing on the Lake, water skiing or wine tasting sound to you?

If you: 
  • are looking for an opportunity to grow in your equine career
  • dream (crave?) a good work/life balance in one of NZs most picturesque big little cities, and
  • enjoy being part of a great team 
then this could be just the job you've been waiting for!

  • 3-clinic practice
  • 6 vets + 3 nurses + 2 vet techs
  • Best Practice Accredited
  • digital x-ray suite
  • ultrasound
  • dental machine
  • IDEXX blood machine
  • fluid pumps
  • multiparameter machine
  • power float for equine dentals
  • plus a whole bunch more!
This team takes pride in providing “gold standard” veterinary medicine alongside Healthy Hoof, Incalf, Body Condition Scoring and Advance Mastitis accreditation.


As the successful applicant, you'll:

  • lead the Equine Services Team
  • participate in the planning and delivery of professional veterinary services
  • be motivated, confident and committed to excellence
  • have amazing client communication skills
  • want to develop and grow in special areas of interest
  • be passionate about CPD
  • want to be part of a close community-orientated team
  • already have a reputation for, and be known to, support professional collegiality 
  • Your NZVA and NZVC fees will be covered.
  • You'll also receive comprehensive income protection and private medical insurance packages (how great is that??)
  • You'll be supplied with a well-equipped vehicle.
  • A very competitive salary is available depending on your experience.

If you've never lived in Taupo you don't know what you're missing - I'd move back to Taupo in a heartbeat if I could {^Julie}.

It's very central to much of the North Island - Hamilton, Rotorua, Tokoroa and Cambridge are just a hop, skip and a jump away not to mention the competitive rental and property prices, you can’t go wrong!
Into the Great Outdoors? Then there's mountain biking, tramping, sailing, NZ Ironman is hosted in Taupo.
As well as the geothermal activity (without the sulfur!), Taupo is a buzzy, high energy (haha - no pun intended) small city that's a great place to bring up a family.
