Current opportunities to join our team:
PART TIME VETERINARIAN - July 2021
KIDS. COME. FIRST.
Hello, Kylie here!
I am a full time mum to 3 beautiful girls (aged 7, 5 and 2), part time vet, full time practice owner… and for funsies (and destressing!) I have started my own hobby business on the side.
I have worked at a number of small animal clinics, and was never quite satisfied…
I wanted more!
I wanted to feel I was giving 100% care and support to my clients and patients every time.
I wanted a team I loved and could support, and a team that loved me back and were there to support me too.
Then I met Erica…
Hi, I’m Erica!
I’m not a mum, but I feel like that’s okay for me. I am a full time vet, full time practice owner, a full time sci-fi nerd, and a part time aerialist.
I have always loved my work, even through the ups and downs. I think the term unicorn has been thrown around more than once…
Through working in a few different practices I formed my own view on what I think it means to provide great veterinary care, and what makes a great workplace.
I soon found that Kylie shared my views too!
And so an idea started…
A great friendship turned into a great partnership, so…
In November 2018 we opened the doors to a family owned small animal clinic - North Maclean Family Vet – and haven’t looked back!
We are currently searching for a good, all-rounder vet who is available to work between school hours. NO. AFTERHOURS.
Kylie especially understands the confidence and nerves when returning to work after maternity leave – we want to assure you that we will be supportive during this transition and help bring you back up to speed.
We will be patient… we will be kind… we will support you and help you grow.
We get you!
We want you to enjoy your time at work, but have the time at home with your family.
We value career development and will provide numerous options for continued education in your area/s of interest.
As a new clinic, we have all of the usual fantastic modern equipment.
Our clients constantly tell us they love our fresh and clean clinic!
We practice high quality medicine, and will regularly involve in-house specialists in our patient care.
Our mobile cardiologist offers in house workups, preventative screenings and extensive knowledge.
Our mobile internal medicine specialist visits regularly to aid our diagnostic workups, and is always pushing our knowledge and level of care as much as he can! He is a fantastic asset to our team.
We recognise our patients are individuals and treat them as such… our clients really appreciate this!
We are a small, close knit team. Our work family is an extension of our own family. We are supportive of each other whenever possible.
Most importantly, we like to have fun!
A sneak peek into our team meetings and social nights!
Being involved in our local community is really important to us, and we are constantly finding ways that we can give back – we have decided that this year we will all learn AUSLAN (Australian Sign Language) to assist our hearing affected clients.
Sustainability in a world full of many disposables is also important to us, and we all work together to recycle wherever we can!
We asked our team why they loved working for us, and here is what they said…
“North Maclean Family Vet is an extremely furry friendly and client focused practice. Both Dr Erica and Dr Kylie are exceptional vets with extensive knowledge of clients and patients. I’m so very proud to work here. Every shift is a great shift with plenty of laughs. All the staff are brilliant!”
“I may be biased but it is the best clinic that I have worked in! Also, Dr Kylie and Dr Erica are excellent at hiring the best of the best!”
“I didn’t know it was possible to have work life balance in the veterinary industry until I joined the North Maclean Family Vet team. In my 15+ years in the industry I have never found a clinic to be more in touch with the needs of their clients, patients and very importantly their staff! Joining this team was one of the best decisions I have ever made and I can’t imagine ever working anywhere else.”
“The North Maclean team have done an amazing job at making me feel a part of the team and family. I always look forward to an exciting day at work!”

A love of sci-fi isn’t a necessity, but it wouldn’t go astray! (Erica would love a new friend!)
We are located in a growing region of southern, suburban Brisbane. We are approximately 50 minutes from Brisbane City, 30 minutes from the Gold Coast and the idyllic Tamborine Mountain, 45 minutes from Ipswich Central, or 20 minutes from Browns Plains. We are easily accessed along the Mount Lindesay Highway, making travel to and from the clinic very easy.
North Maclean is a semi-rural and suburban area, with lots of acreage and several new housing developments. Our clinic is situated in the local village hub, which has the convenience of a fantastic, locally renowned fruit shop. The hub also has a butcher, fish & chip takeaway, bottle-o, chemist, doctor’s clinic, and animal produce store, as well as a bakery that does the best coffee and treats south of Brisbane! We are only 10 minutes from Jimboomba, which has a growing shopping and business centre (and lots of lunch options!).
