SPCA veterinary surgeons enjoy an excellent work-life balance; generous annual leave, a 5-day week, a 6pm finish, and very limited work on Sundays and Public Holidays (emergency cover and welfare only). Allowing for plenty of time off to relax and recharge, and to enjoy and pursue the finer things in life!
