WA Veterinary Emergency & Specialty



At WAVES we understand that the team that make up the working family, is as important as the amazing care provided to our clients pets.

Western Australian Veterinary Emergency and Specialty (WAVES) are an emergency, critical care and specialty veterinary hospital that opened in Success, WA in May 2013. From time to time, vacancies may become available, and will be advertised in various locations. If you read an advertisement and feel the role is right for you, then please follow the application instructions listed in each advertisement, as they may vary.

WAVES takes recruitment very seriously, and we like to ensure that the role is right for the person, as well as the person right for the role. Many of our team have been with us since we opened in 2013.



Vacancies available from  29.04.2020


WAVES currently requires a full time Emergency and Critical Care Veterinarian to join our growing team.

We are looking for an enthusiastic, energetic, compassionate veterinarian who views being a vet as a calling and not just a career. If you have boundless energy, great communication skills, a positive outlook, work best under pressure, then you may be the person we are looking for.

At WAVES, we pride ourselves in looking after our team members ensuring they feel supported.  In addition to working in a beautiful purpose-built hospital, with emergency and critical care specialists available around the clock, we will also provide you with:

  • All the training you need
  • A healthy continuing education budget, we will encourage and support your further education over the years
  • An employee assistant program including a personal coach if required
  • Provide a healthy and happy workplace for you and everyone else
  • Highly skilled, very educated, happy nurses
  • We will deal with any negative workplace behaviour, in any form, to make sure you enjoy working here with us
  • Provide you with a challenging and satisfying career
  • Provide all the equipment you require to optimally care for your patients
  • Provide an endless supply of snack’s and chocolate

Applicants must have at least 3 year’s general practice experience or at least 3 years emergency experience to apply for a senior position. Membership qualifications will be viewed favourably and as is previous experience in emergency and critical care, though neither of these are essential.

Annual salary ranges from $54,000 to $120,000 commensurate with experience and qualifications.

We are looking for dedicated veterinarians who understand that being an emergency vet isn’t a 9-5 job. Please, only apply if you can work on a rotating roster that will include days, nights, overnights, weekends and some public holidays.

We do take recruitment very seriously because we know it is important to get the right people and it’s also important that you are going to like working with us. We want to build up a team of people who will stay for years, be part of the WAVES family, and grow with us.

So if you think that you may be the person we are looking for, and you have not applied to the WAVES emergency department in the last 12 months, please email Emma <emma@wavets.com.au> to find out more about our recruitment process and how to apply.

We are looking forward to hearing from you.
