Career Opportunity, Equine

Calling experienced Equine Surgeons who seek:

  • A high performing team

  • Superb facilities

  • Hard-to-beat climate in a fantastic location in Australia

Scenic Rim Veterinary Service is a fully equipped equine referral and first-opinion practice located on 30 acres on the outskirts of Beaudesert, in the Scenic Rim region of south-east Queensland, Australia.

We have a position for an Equine Surgeon to join our 2 experienced surgeons within a growing team of 15 veterinarians.

Applicants with specialty registration or applicants who are experienced surgeons or who have completed a residency program will be considered.

Importantly, we seek a talented, enthusiastic, practical team player who shares our goal of providing top level veterinary care.


Scenic Rim Veterinary Service is a growing practice with 15 veterinarians and 12 support staff, including qualified nurses and experienced administration staff.

It has a large thoroughbred client base, both racing and stud, along with servicing a considerable number of sport horses, Quarter Horses, Australian Stock Horses and companion horses.  Full surgical services, ultrasound, digital radiography, video endoscopy, laparoscopy and diode laser services are offered.


The surgical team manages approximately 1000 general anaesthetic surgeries per year.  These include orthopaedic, ophthalmology, reproductive, respiratory and GIT cases.

Our vets perform significant lameness work, performance medicine, endoscopy, radiology, artificial reproduction and stud management and medicine.


Beaudesert is a beautiful country area with a great climate and there is simply no better place in the country to work with horses than in this part of south-east Queensland. 

We benefit from the lifestyle that comes with living regionally, whilst being within easy reach of both city and surf.  It is an easy one hour drive to Brisbane city and one hour from the awesome surf beaches of the Gold Coast.  https://www.visitscenicrim.com.au/  

Being so close to Brisbane, the towns of the Scenic Rim district benefit from the café-culture tourism and a thriving population of tree-changers.


Remuneration package is based on qualifications and experience and will include an equipped vehicle, mobile phone and a commitment to continuing education.

As part of the Apiam Animal Health family of rural and regional clinics, we offer many additional benefits.  In addition to mixed and production animal practices, Apiam Animal Health operates a network of equine-focused clinics offering both specialist referral services and ambulatory equine services.
