Join our Team
Taking care of pets is not just what we do, it’s what we love and are passionate about. If you feel you’re the right fit for our team, please consider applying below.
Animal Options Vet Clinic and Wet Noses Mobile Vet are looking for a Full-time vet to join our mobile practice.
Do you want to go to work and feel like you can go home with a sense of achievement? Do you want to have a purpose and feel like you are changing your clients & patients’ life?
Unfortunately, in many vet clinics, the reality may look like this:
Working in fast pace practice consulting 10-20 patients a day.
Managing your clients expectations of paying little or no money for high standards of care.
Wrangling dogs, scruffing cats, getting nervous and stressed when your patient doesn’t cooperate.
Performing multiple surgeries and dentals in one day with minimal time for planning.
Handling walk-ins with minimal consideration of your workload.
Having to attend to multiple patients at a time, getting distracted numerous times.
Eating when you can and typing your histories while you eat your lunch.
Having nurses interrupting your work and answering the phones because everyone is too busy to do it.
Cleaning cages because someone simply didn’t do it.
Working with a fragmented and disrupted team where no one is accountable or happy to just be there.
You would be forgiven for wondering what is wrong with the vet industry and maybe even be questioning why you entered this profession in the first place.
The good news is that not every practice is the same, not every team is broken and not every client is complicated. There is hope and we are working on it right now.
We have a great team of vet nurses, receptionists, vets and a practice manager that are passionate about patient & client care and we are working on an innovative vet business model: Mobile Vet alongside a Clinic, this is where we integrate Wet Noses Mobile Vet with Animal Options Vet Clinic.
You may have heard the old myth that working as a mobile vet can be messy and difficult. At Animal Options Vet Clinic and Wet Noses Mobile Vet, we would love to give you an opportunity to have a much better experience as a clinician and better interaction with clients. This is because when you work in our mobile clinic:
You only see 6-8 patients a day, so not many notes to write up.
You have a dedicated nurse working alongside you to assist with restraining animals, driving the van whilst you write up your notes and whatever else you need.
The clients are much less stressed, they offer you a coffee, a glass of water, they set up a table for you. They always make you feel welcome, which is usually the other way around in a vet clinic. Remember, you are the guest in their home.
Clients are informed of the costs up front and aware that a convenient service is more expensive, so minimal surprises or frustrations during the visit.
The pets are so well behaved. It is amazing how cooperative they are at home and how much you can do in a visit.
You can actually see where your patient lives, their surroundings or that bag of food clients never know the name of. You have the opportunity to see first hand the litter tray, sleeping area and garden plants that may be causing issues rather than relying on a description from the owner.
The appt list is well organised, no walk-ins, no clients calling you, there are minimal interruptions so you can focus on the clients and their pets.
The receptionists are very well trained and will keep everything in check, meaning you can be more organised and know what your day will look like in advance.
You always have the help of your home base clinic with all the whistles, technology, staff, everything you need. This gives you the option to transfer your patient to the hospital for observation if needed and the clinic staff can look after them while you continue on with your day.
From client to client you will be driving through beautiful scenery on the Gold Coast, from the coast to the bush, there is always a great coffee shop where you can stop for your lunch (which will be allocated on your appt list so you can eat in peace).
All of the above comes with all the usual perks that everyone offers but isn’t always enough: good pay, Vin membership, CPD allowance, etc. But the most important thing is the team, our team is the best and every staff member will show you how awesome it is to work here!
On top of all of that we are flexible, with your time, with your roster, with your appt list, with how you want to handle your day and even with what’s your special interest. If you want some time in the clinic to do surgeries, dentals, consults, X-rays etc then we can arrange that. At Animal Options Vet Clinic and Wet Noses Mobile Vet we work to our strengths and we focus on what brings us joy and purpose.
Ready to give it a go? Come and see what we are doing.
