Default Working as a vet in NZ - help wanted please!

Hi all,

Hope you had a Happy New Year!

I'm writing to see if there are any vets out there who can give me any help/info on average working conditions, wages etc. I've tried the internet but have not managed to find any websites [so far] that can help. Are there any websites or organisations that do surveys on working conditions?
I would be planning on working in small animal practice as it's been years since I did large animal work and I'm sure I've forgotten most of it!

I have submitted an EOI with 130 points and no job offer. This has been selected so I'm just waiting for the next step. Just trying to get as much info as I can for now.

Hoping someone can help, I know it's a bit vague!

Thanks Sue

Hey Sue R

Have just done a google and found this, but you probably know that already!

Also a job search on seek threw this up,

and this one

http://www.vetcouncil.org.nz/

and this one

http://www.nzs.com/business/services...ls/veterinary/

and this one

hope they help!

Why not try writing to them direct, they may be able to provide your answers or alternatively point you in the right direction?

when we shipped our cat over from uk , we had these vets pick her up & board her for 4wks in the cattery, thery were lovely & really helpful. they were recommended to me by another poster on this site & as i understand it one of the vets has a phone in slot on a radio station. hopefully they'll help you out too with your queries
good luck

Welcome to BE, Sue. I'm afraid I'm in no position to help, but glad you have some pointers. Have some welcome karma.

Hi there,

Thanks for your replies, got most of the sites already but some I've not come across so will have a look.
Plenty of time yet as it looks like it'll be a while before the EOI is dealt with. Then here [there?] I go, well hopefully, can't be getting too optimistic yet!

Thanks all

Sue

sue.
I read on this site that there has been a programme in the UK called Wanted Down Under which has featured a Vet.

Did you catch it?

Hi
Yes, read elsewhere on this site that it was going to be on. Looks like the one with the vet is on next Monday morning so will get the DVD recording, crossing fingers it'll do as it's told! Understanding as the boss is I don't think he'll will let me come in late so I can watch it!
Thanks
