Umm Suqeim Veterinary Centre, Dubai (posted 24th May)

Umm Suqeim Logo

Come and work in the best 24 hour hospital in Dubai. 

We have always recognised the essential contribution of our talented nurses to the welfare, care and outcome of our patients. With a salary of circa 57K pa, plus loading, extras, end of service benefits and no tax, your actual take home is so much more!  This is your chance to get ahead, live in a holiday destination and practice the best medicine you have ever dreamed of.

Dubai is an amazing place to live and play, a top lifestyle and a hub for easy travel. We performed brilliantly in Covid as one of the first countries to have the highest voluntary vaccination rate, easy movement and limited restrictions that allowed businesses and people to continue through the pandemic and prosper.

Professionally you will learn and grow in leaps and bounds. If you are interested in complicated surgical procedures and anaesthetics, diagnostic imaging (radiology, dental radiology, CT), intensive hospital care and emergency medicine then this is the position you have been looking for.  With no referral centres we do it all to an extremely high level, and you experience so much more than you would in a GP clinic. As a 24 hour hospital, with a wealth of qualified nurses, vets, receptionists and nurse assistants, cleaners and pharmacists, you have a chance to work in a great team and devote yourself to actual hands-on nursing.  

We work a 40 hour week of varying shifts, and 12 hour night shifts of week on week off which can allow you to have loads of time off (some of our nurses end up with 10 - 18 weeks off per year) allowing travel, study or just extended beach time!  We work in a friendly multi-cultural tolerant environment.

You ideally will have worked in a busy environment with a good exposure to intensive hospital and surgical cases.  A hunger to learn and know more about cases is essential, and you should have a good grounding in both medical and surgical nursing. Excellent communication skills are required for both collegial interaction with our team members and empathetic care and understanding with clients.  You should be proficient in surgical nursing, anaesthesia, dental procedures and taking care of hospitalised patients.  Ideally, a good knowledge of medicines and competence in radiology would be helpful.  

We value and nurture our relationships - within the hospital and with our patients.
We have a loyal team and a client base - we respect and remember the helping hands.
We set our standards high and strive every day to live up to them.
We push our boundaries for learning and education.
We get the job done.

We save animals. That’s what we do.
If you want to save animals, with a top-class team in an extraordinary environment speak to us.

Kman Vets, Cayman Islands (posted 8th April)

Kman Vets Logo

Registered Veterinary Nurse - Cayman Islands

Do you long for the sun on your face everyday and a job that allows you to utilize all your nursing skills and feel part of something really positive and special? 

Yes, you can have both and yes this job exists…

WHO?

A unique opportunity for an experienced and capable qualified nurse with minimum 3 years experience, preferably with some referral/specialist centre exposure. Someone who has a big heart and cares about the patients, they're owners and the environment they are working in. Someone who is passionate about their job and wants to work with like minded, friendly, smart, knowledgeable colleagues. Someone who is proactive and committed to doing  the job well and be recognized for their efforts and feel included. Someone who is adaptable and open to new experiences whilst bringing their own unique qualities to what is an emotional, tiring but oh so rewarding way of life. Someone who is eager for adventure but unsure about this crazy world just now. 

WHAT?

Kman Vets was established in 2018 and has grown rapidly in the past 4 years.  We are now a 4 vet, 5 nurse clinic with 3 support staff (and me!).  We strive to practice good quality, referral standard care to our canine and feline friends on island. Our clients are lovely and their pets very much a part of their  families. As we have no specialist back-up (only overseas in the USA) we get to see and treat a varied and wide caseload that can often really challenge us professionally. Though we may be in an exotic location we do not see exotic species. We are also not a spay and neuter clinic and instead are offering advanced surgical and medical procedures alongside a mobile service that takes us on the road with Home Visit appointments. These can be very varied, colorful and a great way to see the island and its people.

Clinic based on either on a surgical or medical rotation with some reception cover or mobile. A  paid 40 hour week (scheduled 38 hour working week with 2 hours flexibility for those unexpected moments). Time and a half for any hours worked over the 40hrs. Dedicated call out fee and after hours fee remuneration on an individual basis.

WHERE?

The Cayman Islands …..nestled in the Caribbean Sea, West of Jamaica, South of Cuba and South East of Florida. A relaxed, friendly and safe Caribbean Island with warm hearted people and warm turquoise blue waters. A real community spirit and where your wages are your own, we are tax free. 

WHEN?

Within the next 3 to 6 months ideally. The work permit application process takes about 3 months. Note: initially there will be some effort on your part to arrange the necessary paperwork for this submission. This includes Police Clearance certificate, Letter of Good Standing from the RCVS, Notarised qualification documentation, along with the  Work Permit submission form. 

WHY?

Why not? After the last 2 years you deserve a new beginning and opportunity to excel doing what you love. We want quality nurses with high standards to continue to help our well respected small animal clinic to thrive.  Our physical footprint maybe small but our hearts and impact are broad. 

If you would like further information regarding the position offered, please get in touch by email admin@kmanvets.com with a covering letter and CV. Interviews will be by Skype/Zoom/Face Time and likely at the weekend or late in the day, due to time zone constraints. Please visit our website www.kmanvets.com or for island information www.caymanresident.com is a good resource.

All applicants must have received 2 Covid 19 vaccinations
