About this opportunity

Attention all experienced vets with a passion for animal welfare, high standards of veterinary work, family friendly hours and no client contact!

We have a fantastic opportunity for an experienced veterinarian to join our veterinary team at RSPCA WA as the Head Vet. This is a permanent part-time position, working three or four days a week.

The veterinary clinic based at the RSPCA WA shelter in Malaga provides services for the shelter animals and the RSPCA WA Inspectorate, including prosecutions.

The veterinary team practices at a very high standard, with best animal welfare being central to all treatment undertaken.

Our facility is equipped with:

  • full orthopaedic kit
  • electrocautery unit
  • two IM3 dental machines
  • digital x-ray
  • ultrasound
  • surgivet
  • pulse ox

  • in house blood analysers.

This role is predominately responsible for holding clinic licenses and providing support to the wider veterinary team. There is minimal administration work.

The role involves regular weekday shift week from 9am–5 pm. No weekend or afterhours work is required. As we do not offer a veterinary service to the public, there is no requirement for client contact in this role.

This position would suit a small animal veterinarian who has:

  • at least 5 years clinical experience
  • confidence with routine small animal medical and surgical cases
  • some experience with more complex cases
  • good attention to detail
  • a team player ethos.

We have a wonderful team of staff who are very welcoming and will support you in your role.
