Barossa Veterinary Service is a mixed practice in the beautiful Barossa Valley, with clinics in Nuriootpa and Kapunda. We have been providing veterinary care for over 40 years, the last 3 years it has been in the hands of Catherine and Josh who are taking the business to the next level. Both clinics have undergone extensive upgrades in recent years with the introduction of new equipment and training enabling us to provide standards of care that make us proud.

Our highly skilled team of vets and nurses are the backbone of the business, their ability to maximise animals’ health and wellbeing by inspiring change in how owners think and care for their animals is outstanding. Our team are dynamic, a truly remarkable mix of skills and personalities. There will be no panic, we are at our best when the chips are down, level heads always prevail. However, it’s not all about business, we even have a social committee that coordinate activities like horse riding, charity walks and outdoor movie nights. At Barossa Veterinary Service we understand the key to a successful team is a great work life balance and strive towards achieving this every day.

We also are in the process of achieving recognition as a fear free clinic and have recently introduced a sensory garden. We have separate dog and cat wards and a great outdoor area suitable for large animal work and puppy classes. Kapunda has also had recent renovations, whilst smaller it is well equipped.

The position is for a casual, cert 4 qualified vet nurse. Business hours are 8am-6pm Monday to Friday and 8am-12pm on Saturday’s.
