Equine Surgeon

Scone Equine Group (SEG) is seeking a full time equine surgeon, to be based at the Scone Equine Hospital, NSW or Avenel Equine Hospital, Victoria. Applicants must have, or be eligible to sit, appropriate qualifications to allow registration as an Australian specialist in equine surgery. These include FANZCVS, Dipl ACVS or Dipl ECVS.

SEG includes Scone Equine Hospital, Equine Podiatry and Lameness Centre, Avenel Equine Hospital and Tamworth Equine Veterinary Centre. We are the largest equine practice in the southern hemisphere, employing approximately 50 equine veterinarians during the breeding season. The group boasts an internationally recognised team of veterinarians, including 4 specialists in equine surgery, 5 specialists in equine medicine, 1 anaesthesiologist and 1 theriogenologist.

Scone Equine Hospital performs approximately 2000 major surgical procedures and Avenel 400 annually. The surgical load is biased towards thoroughbreds, although we have a significant number of non-racing performance clients. The Scone Equine Hospital is well equipped to perform all recognised procedures. Surgeries at Avenel (Victoria) and Tamworth (NSW) are well equipped to perform routine elective and some emergency procedures.

Scone is located in the heart of the thoroughbred breeding and western performance industries and is a beautiful part of rural Australia located close to major regional centres and cities on the east coast of Australia.

Avenel Equine Hospital is located in the heart of Victoria's thoroughbred breeding region. The practice offers a comprehensive ambulatory service to equine clients in the local area as well as an elective surgical service and intensive care at the hospital. We currently employ 9 equine veterinarians including one experienced surgeon and one medicine specialist in our team.

The successful applicant will be one of five equine surgeons, based at our Scone surgical facility, or one of two based in our Avenel surgical facility. Our surgeons have a wealth of experience and are willing to provide help, support and training.

The position is permanent full time with the hope that the applicant will stay long-term and acquire ownership. An attractive salary package is offered with the commencement date to be determined. Applications close 31 March, 2021.

Our veterinarians are well supported and have access to teams for Accounts/Admin, IT, HR, Marketing & Communications, Free Employee Assistance and an active health and wellbeing program. The practices are well managed, allowing our senior veterinarians to pursue their passions.
