In 1992, a successful businessman and former European Show Jumping Champion
purchased a large site in the expanses of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania. On no less than 3,000 hectares of land in the heart of the protected landscape of the Lewitz, a centre for modern horse breeding which accommodates 4,000 horses and is unparalleled in Europe has emerged over the years.
Around 250 employees look after the well-being of the horses, which are kept in spacious stables and in species-appropriate herds in the expanses of the Lewitz.
We have a veterinary clinic based in Lewitz specializing primarily in equine breeding and treatment.
The position we are offering provides a great opportunity to gain valuable experience in the field of vet nursing, and we expect applicants to come with competent horse/foal training skills as well as being well presented, punctual and reliable.
This is a full-time appointment involving responding to calls from outlying farms and assisting with all aspects of professional breeding. Your duties will include restocking of trucks, setting up equipment, assisting with X-rays, preparing for injections and, above all, working with our foals.
You will frequently be on “foal watch” – looking after mares and their foals, helping with neonatal foal and mare care, and thus given a first-rate opportunity for hands-on learning.
Work on our stud also offers a great learning experience for the prospective veterinary or vet tech student; it will include some additional on-farm duties according to your daily workload.
Please notice that applicants from non-EU countries must have a work permit or EU passport for working in Germany.
The stud’s own apartments, modern and practically furnished, give you affordable living space near your place of work and make it easier for you to form and strengthen social relationships even after you finish work. On request, you will be served breakfast and lunch in the stud’s own canteens.
Of course, we will help you with all the administrative issues which come up at the beginning, provide you with translating assistance during doctor’s visits if necessary and help you with anything else that you need. We will do everything to make your stay as pleasant as possible for you.
