Veterinary Nurse – Full Time

SOUTHERN SRI LANKA - WECare Veterinary Hospital, Talalla, Sri Lanka

Wanna spend your days (and hard-earned skills!) helping those who really need it?!

At WECare, we are vets and nurses doing just that! Sri Lanka is home to millions of street dogs and they need our help more than ever… Our work is not for the faint-hearted- most of it is trauma-based- but we pride ourselves on providing the very best care to animals who have no one looking out for them. AND WE ARE BUSYYYYY- we NEED YOU!!

WECare is a UK vet and nurse run charity providing high standard veterinary care to the millions of roaming dogs in Sri Lanka in need of vet care. We don’t believe street dogs should receive second rate care because they don’t have an owner… and we don’t believe vets/nurses should have to practice second rate care if they want to do something good (get out of the corporate rat race!). We work to UK standards and you will get an opportunity to work alongside an award winning internationally recognised clinical team.

We are looking to recruit VETERINARY NURSE (2 years + experience) on minimum two year contracts to help us on our mission of ensuring no street dog goes without veterinary care!

We are expanding our reach and impact within Sri Lanka and so need a few more incredible additions to the team to make this happen.

Benefits include:

We are located in one of the most beautiful spots on the south coast with incredible beaches, lots of surf and yoga, and most importantly a lovely supportive community behind us. The work can be tough, emotionally and physically, so we don’t want to sugarcoat it but, for the right candidate, this is an incredible opportunity to practise international standard medicine, really make a difference every single day and get back to what being a nurse should be- helping animals in need!!

Calling all qualified Veterinary Nurses!

Veterinary Nurse
Chengdu Bear Rescue Centre, China

Do you enjoy a challenge? Are you dedicated to animal welfare?  Are you a qualified veterinary nurse or technician and do you have a bachelor’s degree in veterinary nursing or a related field?

This is an outstanding opportunity for motivated individuals pursuing a career in wildlife care and welfare. The Veterinary Nurse will work as part of a highly skilled veterinary team to ensure the care of predominantly Asiatic black bears (moon bears) and domestic cats, dogs and other small animals at our rescue centre or in the local area. Appointment is full-time (40 hours/week), five days a week (Mon-Fri) with additional overtime and on call work depending on animal caseload.

You will be based at our Chengdu Bear Rescue Centre in China. You are flexible and enjoy the challenge of working remotely and embracing new cultures. You are highly motivated, experienced and empathetic. You should be comfortable with both clinical and non-clinical work and passionate about animal welfare and people.

There is a high degree of autonomy in this position and while you will work closely with other team members (two other Veterinary Nurses and two Associate Veterinary Surgeons) you will have distinct areas of responsibility. You will contribute to the constantly evolving field of bear medicine and management and will be expected to have a high degree of clinical skill.

This is an incredible opportunity to join a dedicated, high-functioning and cohesive team which is Kindness in Action.

Ashley Pronyk, Vancouver Island / Worldwide Locations (posted 18th September) Experienced Vet Tech

Experienced Veterinary Technologist, Canadian Trained

I'm a Canadian trained veterinary nurse/technologist looking for a full-time position. I am currently located on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. I would prefer to stay on island but am open to other international opportunities.

I have been working as a veterinary technologist since 2013 in Canada as well as internationally (Australia, New Zealand and the Cayman Islands). I have worked at regular practices, advanced medical practices, emergency clinics and have volunteer experience in a shelter setting.

My vision of an ideal work environment is one that encourages good staff relationships, where animal welfare is the main focus and patients and clients are well looked after to the best clinical standards. I have a special interest in surgical procedures and would love the opportunity to further develop my skills. I would also be interested in a veterinary clinic or facility that promotes wildlife rehabilitation.
