SPCA is one of the best loved and most respected charities in New Zealand, with a proud history of helping animals in need since 1883. SPCA Auckland cares for animals that have been lost, abandoned, injured, or abused. We service the whole Auckland region between Port Waikato to Wellsford.
A vacancy has become available for a friendly and experienced full time senior veterinarian to join SPCA Auckland hospital.
In this role, you will be overseeing our vets, providing leadership on all veterinary matters throughout the SPCA Auckland hospital and helping to set the professional standards of animal care and hygiene for the SPCA hospital.
Vets at the village are supported by qualified nurses along with multiple assistants and volunteers. The SPCA handles approximately 10,000 animals per year and the opportunity for education and experience is limitless. While our work is comprised of shelter work, the sheer number of cases we see in a year allows for more experiences and learning than just ‘shelter work’.
The hospital is equipped with all the daily functioning equipment along with digital full body and dental x-ray, dental machine, IV fluid pumps, surgical suite and anaesthetic monitoring equipment.
The successful candidate would need to be confident with both surgery and medicine and have experience overseeing staff/veterinarians. You will be a confident people person and have team management experience. You must be comfortable working with a large number of nursing staff along with 5th year vet students and you would need to work with several different groups within the SPCA Village. This role requires someone that can multi-task as a leader within a team and be willing to work cooperatively with other departments on an everyday basis.
Your responsibilities would span over a 5 day work week (1 weekend required per month) and package includes 4 week annual leave, CPD leave and reimbursement package along with paid veterinary memberships. You will have continual mentoring from the Head of Veterinary Services, work alongside a senior nurse and be supported by a clinic administrator.
The successful candidate would ideally have three-five years’ experience. Please apply with a CV and covering letter to the Head of Veterinary Services, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Marketing & Fundraising Department
Every year the SPCA protects over 46,000 animals that have been abused, neglected or simply abandoned. We receive no government funding, yet without the SPCA there would be thousands of animals left in need with no-one to care for them.
You will be responsible for ensuring that the Supporter Care and Database team deliver excellent services to donors, maintain accurate records and are supported to perform at the highest possible standard. You will be leading a team of Supporter Care and Database Administrators so previous leadership experience is essential. You will lead the team to achieve increased donor retention and fundraised income for the organization. Previous experience entering and extracting data from Raiser’s Edge is also essential.
This role is an integral part of the marketing and fundraising team; a fast paced, high performing team within a friendly and supportive team environment.
If you’d like to use your skills to really make a difference, please send a covering letter and CV outlining your interest in the role and how your skills match the criteria to email@example.com.
Applications without a cover letter will NOT be considered. A position description is available on request.
