Forget Bondi… Become Broken Hill vet!


Are you a passionate veterinarian looking for a change of scenery? Fancy swapping the hustle and bustle of city life for the beautiful outback of Western NSW?

Western NSW offers the perfect mix of an active or laid-back lifestyle, affordable property and housing and a true sense of community – making it the perfect place to call home.

To highlight the benefits of living and working in one of the most unique places in Australia, Local Land Services is launching the ‘West is Best’ campaign.

With the aim of attracting new staff to the region, the campaign will tell the stories of several employees who call the Western region home and why they wouldn’t want to live or work anywhere else.

Local Land Services offers meaningful career options across several areas of expertise, from customer service to biosecurity, veterinary to agriculture, as well as project support, human resources, finance and administration.

Whether you are looking for the next step in your career, ready for a change or new opportunity, or just at the beginning of your working life, why not do it against the backdrop of Western NSW?

Local Land Services is currently hiring two District Veterinarian positions in its Western region, which covers 40% of NSW and includes locations such as Broken Hill, Bourke, Cobar and Tibooburra.

In this role, you will tackle vital tasks such as livestock disease surveillance, biosecurity, animal emergency management, and animal welfare in the stunning Western region of NSW.

To find out more about the veterinarian positions, visit the I work for NSW website: District Veterinarian (Western NSW).

Applications close on Tuesday 25 February.

Local Land Services staff support landholders to make better decisions about the land they manage and assist rural and regional communities to be profitable and sustainable into the future.

Minister for Agriculture, Regional NSW and Western NSW Tara Moriarty said:

“Western NSW is a great place to live and work, regardless of what stage of your career you’re at.

“It is the gateway to the Australian outback, boasting wide open spaces, unique and beautiful landscapes and is home to important historical and cultural sites,

“The ‘West is Best’ campaign highlights the great opportunities on offer in the Western region.

“Living and working Western NSW will open a world of adventure, new experiences, closeknit and supportive communities and important purposeful job opportunities. “

Western Local Land Services General Manager Erlina St Vincent said:

“Local Land Services is a great place to develop your career, and I would encourage anyone thinking about a tree change to apply for a role in our beautiful Western region.

“We offer excellent working conditions, competitive salaries, a flexible and supportive work culture and extensive development and promotion opportunities.

“Moving to a remote location has given me more opportunities to build my career as a manager and I’ve been able to better connect with the landholders we work with.

“There’s nothing you really can’t do to build your career in the west. Live your best (West) life with Western Local Land Services.
