SINGAPORE - SMALL ANIMALS new grads

Singapore - Small Animal Practice

The practice is seeking the services of a doctor with practical knowledge and skills. What’s needed is someone able to look after the Patients well, and provide a good service to the Clients. The medical standard offered to Clients is high, and less expensive alternatives are provided as options.

DISCOVERY BAY, HONG KONG - FULL TIME SMALL ANIMAL

The Island Veterinary Clinic has been caring for the pets of Discovery Bay (www.dbay.com.hk/) for almost 15 years. Discovery Bay is an enclave in Hong Kong’s hustle and bustle, and with a strongly developing and wealthy client base Doctors Beck & Stone opened a 2nd clinic in the locality 3 years ago. The clinics works as one team and are about 3 kms apart.

Both locations have a digital x-ray, in-house Idexx lab machines, sharing a Doppler ultrasound and dental x-ray: the nursing staff are Philippine vets who work as Veterinary Technicians.

Doctors Beck & Stone culture focuses on team values and clinical support typified by the clinical development program that focuses on providing training across the team whilst supporting the development of clinical leaders in imaging, internal medicine and surgical disciplines.

The position suits a sole-charge practitioner with 3 or more years of experience though vets with 1 year of experience can apply. Travel to Discovery Bay by Hong Kong standards is extended by ferry or bus (30mins), hence the role would suit a vet who wants a quieter life and would like to live by beaches and amongst families with dogs. Within 2018 it is anticipated that the team would need a 3rd full-time vet hence the opportunity might suit a couple.

Putting the welfare of our patients first and advancing the field of veterinary medicine are fundamental to the Doctors Beck & Stone approach to supporting local communities to become responsible pet owners through education and outreach. That’s why our staff can often be seen at local community events; delivering workshops to local schools; and sponsoring charity activities.

Hong Kong is a vibrant city and is both the gateway to China mainland and an excellent travelling base for Asia. Whilst tower blocks feature regularly in blockbuster movies there are few world cities where hills are a hike out of the central business district and beaches a ferry ride away.

Package is commensurate with experience with salary range of GBP5-7K per month, plus end of year hospital performance bonus, continuing professional development budget GBP1K per annum, and re-location package includes flights and work visa / VSB registration support. In this truly international city whilst rent is high it is off-set by a 17% tax rate and there is a diverse range of options.

To apply, simply send your CV and cover letter to careers@drbns.com along with the reference number relevant to the role.

* Please preview the Veterinary Surgeons board of Hong Kong (http://www.vsbhk.org.hk) for professional eligibility.
