Experienced Full-time Small Animal Veterinarian

An opportunity has arisen in our privately owned mixed animal practice in Gisborne for a full-time small animal vet. 

Eastland Veterinary Services covers a large geographical area, servicing clients throughout Gisborne and the Eastland Region. Eastland Vets prides itself on a professional animal health care service; cementing lasting client relationships through good communication and a committed team. For more information about the Eastland Vets team please visit

Working alongside highly skilled vets and nurses in a well-equipped clinic, a 70% working dog case load creates not only variety but an exciting and challenging position in our busy practice. 

This position would suit an enthusiastic, caring, hardworking team player with good communication skills and an interest in working dog medicine and surgery, as well as preventative health and wellbeing for all companion animals. Trauma, GDV, caesareans, fractures, pyometras, and pig dogs – we see them all.

Special interests are encouraged and a competitive salary with generous CPD allowance is included. On call work would be mainly companion animals, on a rostered basis with other veterinary staff. A minimum of two years’ experience would be preferred, but all candidates will be considered. Long term employees will have the opportunity for progression to partnership.

If you’re looking for a relaxed lifestyle and small town community feel with sun, surfing, hunting, fishing, and great wine, Gisborne is the place.
