Looking for an opportunity with a difference; a role with strong emotional reward and a sense of purpose?

Located in Coldstream, only 50 minutes from the city, we are at the gateway of the picturesque Yarra Valley. The Victorian Animal Aid Trust (Animal Aid) has been serving the local community since 1935, caring for and re-homing countless lost, abused and unwanted companion animals.

A fantastic opportunity exists for an experienced veterinarian who is looking for the next challenge in their career. As the Clinic Director, you will be responsible for setting and driving strategic goals and expanding the capabilities of our clinic whilst applying your veterinary skills in a mix of private and welfare cases.

Animal Aid is in the process of building a BRAND NEW vet clinic and we are wanting to expand our business to deliver the best possible services to our community. As Clinic Director, you will be an integral part of this vision and be provided with opportunities to expand your learning for the advancement of our clinic.

The right candidate will be an experienced veterinarian who has the energy and drive to make a real difference, with a passion for quality practice management and team development.

Our clinic primarily cares for small animals, with occasional exotics and small ruminant cases.

This is a role with diversity, as the successful applicant will manage a mix of both private and welfare veterinary services along with the directorship of our clinic.

Work as a shelter veterinarian is a rewarding opportunity which is not often realised until you become a part of it. Paired with a balance of private practice work to the general public, this is a holistic and highly rewarding role.

More broadly, this role is also an integral part of our greater animal welfare mission; delivered by a team of dedicated staff and volunteers across Animal Aid businesses including Shelters, Boarding Facilities, Grooming Services, Animal Training, Retail, Fundraising and Community Engagement.

The successful applicant will be:

  • Experienced with strong clinical expertise
  • A passionate leader who can engage and manage a team of clinic team members
  • Influential in the growth of your clinic
