ARE YOU LOOKING FOR A FAMILY-FRIENDLY WORKPLACE??

As a mother of three kids myself, I understand that when you take time off to have your babies and watch them grow, it can be hard transitioning back into vet practice.

You may have lost confidence in your skills.

You might be unsure how to balance work life and family life.

You are probably convinced if you go back to work you will NEVER get out on time to pick up the kids.

And the cost of day-care is escalating so is it really worth the exchange?

Yep, it’s worth it. Not only because you will keep your skills by getting back on the wagon, but because you will be a happier parent if you are satisfied professionally and personally.

When I was pregnant with my third bubba, I used to drive over an hour to work once a week, just so I could have ‘a day off’! A day void of wrangling two kids when heavily pregnant with another was so luxurious. It was the time I needed to exercise my brain, stay in the game, and come home feeling satisfied so I could once again parent from a place of fulfilment.

Being a parent is one of the hardest jobs in the world.  Being a vet shouldn’t make it harder for you. We are here to support you to make family-vet life easier, so you can have the best of both worlds.

What are we offering?

  • Flexible work hours & days
  • Minimal Saturday roster
  • NO AFTER HOURS! (We get woken up enough by our human babies – we don’t need the added load of fur-baby emergencies through the night as well!)
  • Wage well above award
  • Paid study/conference leave
  • Guidance and on-the-ground mentoring in holistic therapies appropriate to your skill level
  • Idyllic location on the beautiful Sunshine Coast, Qld.

The role is ideal for someone with an interest in learning more about integrative veterinary options.  And your dental muscles will also get lots of exercise.

What we stand for:

  • Minimal safe vaccination schedules & titre testing to monitor antibody responses
  • Delayed desexing (have you seen the studies on Golden Retrievers and the impact of early desexing?)
  • Real nutrition
  • Low-stress vet clinic experiences (clients, pets and our team too!)
  • Educating our clients about how to get pets well and keep them that way
  • Proactive dental care & early intervention.

What we stand against:

  • Veterinary burn-out – we want you to enjoy yourself at work, leave on time, and not become another industry statistic
  • Toxic work environments – everyone here is valued and respected for what they bring to the table
  • Toxic clients – we do not tolerate abuse or unreasonable behaviour. Thankfully we rarely have to, most of our clients are truly delightful humans.

If what you have read so far excites you, get in touch.  Email manager@thenaturalvets.com.au and we will set up a time to discuss this opportunity further.

Here’s what one of our vets has to say:

“I love working at The Natural Vets for so many reasons. I am passionate about holistic veterinary medicine where we get to the cause of the disease in the patient and support them to heal. I’ve also come to realise that the most important part of working in a veterinary practiCe is the way it’s managed and the team you work with. I look forward to going to work each day because I genuinely enjoy working with the team. I find the case load challenging keeping me interested and always learning and the clients are a pretty great bunch of people too. So not only do I get to follow my passion in integrative natural medicine but the people and practice itself is a pleasure to work for.” – Dr Natalie (Mum of 2 year old Olivia)
