At AREC you’ll feel the energy and compassion we bring to emergency and specialist pet care. We’re dedicated to saving the lives of pets and bringing peace of mind to pet owners; we do this with a team approach and a focus on our core values.
Working at AREC offers the chance to learn and grow in your expertise in Specialist or Emergency Veterinary Care and you’ll get to know some pretty amazing people along the way.
2018 has been another exciting year for us at AREC. We are currently recruiting for both full time, part time and casual, veterinarians and nurses.
We are predominantly looking for staff who are able to work evenings and weekends in Emergency and Critical Care. However, as our Referral Services continue to flourish, we are also looking for experienced staff to build on our already experienced team.

Here’s what some our staff have to say about working at AREC:
Newcastle as a home
A large modern city with less hustle and bustle you would expect for its size, situated 2 hours north of Sydney, less than an hour drive to the famous Hunter wine region, surrounded by national parks and forests, bordered by beaches, bays, the Hunter River and Lake Macquarie.
It boasts one of Australia’s leading universities, busiest ports and home of the Newcastle Knights (Rugby League) and Newcastle Jets (Football). Like any large modern city, contains all the amenities of one with a variety of schools, shopping centres, health services, and sport organisations.
We don’t have Sydney’s traffic, Melbourne’s cold, Adelaide’s heat nor Brisbane’s thunderstorms!
