Are you looking for a great environment to work in?

Do you want to enjoy coming to work and be part of a positive team culture that values you and your wellbeing?

Come to the beautiful Fraser Coast because we are looking for another vet to join our awesome team!


About us:

Fraser Coast Veterinary Services is made up of our main clinic in Maryborough and our branch clinic in Howard. We are a long established vet surgery that is well respected in the community.

Our team is made up of 5 vets with a mixture of experience and is supported by an experienced nursing team. Our nurses work hard to make the day run as smoothly as possible and are hands on in assisting the vets with cases. The senior vets hold an ANZCVS membership in surgery and a post grad qualification in Emergency and Critical Care and enjoy working collaboratively, being approachable and love discussing cases.

We pride ourselves on creating a friendly and welcoming clinic environment. We genuinely feel our clinic is a lovely place to come to work and we enjoy sharing our successes as a team. We celebrate our achievements, discuss our challenges and always strive to support each other.

We believe in looking after the wellbeing of our staff and are part of the cohort for the new AVA Thrive initiative which is a wellness action that aims to support veterinary staff to lead satisfying, prosperous, and healthy careers.
