Job Description:

Are you a passionate Veterinarian looking to work in Hobart Tasmania? Are you wanting to work with vets with multiple memberships in ECC and Medicine?

Animal Emergency Service in Hobart Tasmania, combines heritage charm with modern luxuries.

Nestled at the foothills of Mount Wellington, Hobart is beautiful. Tasmania’s capital, and the second oldest capital in Australia after Sydney, Tasmania is a mixture of bustling city, bushland and beaches.
Come to Hobart and experience an old town salty-air feel; have early morning sand between your toes, wander city streets, eat world class food, head to a mountain summit and be back in time for cocktails on the waterfront, all whilst working for one of @AnimalemergencyAustralia’s ECC practices, Animal Emergency Service Hobart!

We are pleased to announce growth opportunity for our well-equipped emergency hospital, with an experienced team of emergency veterinarians and vet nurses. As a member of our veterinary team, you will be provided both on-the-job and external training to help you provide excellent Emergency and Critical Care to our patients. You will be supported by an amazing team of vet nurses, specialist trained client care representatives, and a managerial team dedicated to helping you achieve your career goals.
