Fansea a sea change at Seaside? (lol)

As the great philosopher Rihanna once said, “You can stand under my beach umbrella.”

Seaside Vet Surgery is looking to swell our fantastic team. We are currently a 3 and a bit FTE small animal practice, and we would like to wave hello to a new vet. Weather you’re a new graduate, a recent graduate or an experienced vet - we want to hear from you. We pride ourselves on supporting and mentoring new graduates; you would have a team of experienced veterans around to help and guide you as you learn and gain confidence. We are here to kelp!

Seaside Vet Surgery is in Wallaroo, on the Yorke Peninsula, home to some pristine beaches. This is a relaxed town and a popular holiday area, with the population tide coming in during school holidays and long weekends. The practice is privately owned, with owners Dr Natalie Wakeham and Dr Amanda Bunney returning to the area three years ago to take over the practice after starting their careers here as new graduates a million years ago. They’re anything but washed up, however…

Ideally we’d love a full-time vet to add to the team, but we would also consider part time arrangements. We always try to accommodate our team-member’s needs in terms of child care and family circumstances, as well as social and sporting commitments. We’re LGBTQIA+ friendly, family friendly, diverse in age and experience, and we don’t care if you have tatts. Yes, even bad tatts!

Seaside Vet Surgery was my first job as a vet, and it’s a big change going from a student to a practising clinician! There was plenty of support given and there was always someone around to help. Being a bit further from Adelaide meant we did more things ourselves, which allowed me to learn so much. It’s a very supportive clinic, with a focus on create a great work-life balance. Finishing at 5pm on weekdays and only being open in the morning on Saturdays definitely helped to achieve this. Management were very respectful of outside work commitments and flexible to help accommodate these.” – Grace, 2018 graduate.

We do all the regular small animal things, with the usual toys and equipment. Having some fun at work is a non-negotiable, and we always look out for each other. We take great satisfaction in looking after the team, supporting each individual vet, nurse, and receptionist. We strive to maintain high standards of patient advocacy and care, and we are known for taking great care of our human clients as well.

We can offer a great salary and benefits package, and loads of support and mentoring. We provide CPD leave and allowances, and will pay for your Vet Surgeons Board rego in your first year. We also have monthly production bonuses for all staff. We do provide an after-hours service to the community, which has reduced over the last two years. As we are phasing after hours out, participation in the after hours rota is optional for our new star(fish) vet.

 We would love to find someone who enjoys coral(l)ing people, who can communicate well with their colleagues and clients, and who is passionate about being a great patient advocate. If that sounds like you, and you fansea the idea of being a beach bum, please send us a message in a bottle to, and we’ll get back to you to organise a chinwag.

We can be found at 24 John Terrace, Wallaroo SA 5556
Ph 08 8823 3233




We would love you to be a good communicator, and to enjoy working within a team. We'd love you to be keen and motivated, and to be willing to give things a go - we've got your back! You will need to be registered in the SA vet board, or hold a registration with another state as recognised by the SA board. A driver's license and your own vehicle, so you can get to work and possibly to the odd home euthanasia.
