Barn Assistant

School of Veterinary Science

Founded in 1936, the School of Veterinary Science has a rich history and has a reputation for graduating self-reliant, independent and highly capable veterinarians with plenty of initiative and drive. The School has high quality facilities at the UQ Gatton Campus, providing the teaching, research and clinical infrastructure and resources to develop its strong reputation as a leading provider of veterinary training, research and clinical care. The School also maintains a small animal hospital and large animal clinic at Dayboro, north-west of Brisbane.       

The Role

This position is responsible for the care of all Equine Specialist Hospital in-patients (feed, water and bedding), handling and restraint of horses for clinical procedures, as well as the care and maintenance of the stable facilities (stable cleaning, general cleaning) at the Equine Hospital.

The Person

Applicants should have completed Year 10 and ideally will have a minimum of 2 years experience in the horse industry, including active horse husbandry and handling. An open driver's licence (Class C) is essential for this position, and a current forklift ticket would be highly desirable.

The perfect candidate for this role must be physically fit, and capable of carrying out duties such as trotting horses, bedding and cleaning stables, providing manual assistance with moving and manipulating anaesthetised horses, and restraint of horses as well as demonstrating care and compassion for hospital patients.

Remuneration

There are 2 part time positions (Hew 1) available and the FTE will be negotiated with the successful applicants. The full-time equivalent base salary will be in the range of $49,267.67 - $51,067.67 p.a., plus employer superannuation contributions of 9.5%.
