WECare Worldwide, Talalla, Sri Lanka (posted 21st November) Vet Nurse



** Location- 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.

We are looking to recruit VET NURSES (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. We are looking for candidates for two separate roles- one to cover the ECC/Hospital and one to assist with our Outreach Programmes (mass neuter, vacc, microchip and education).

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 practice international standard medicine, really make a difference every single day and get back to what being a nurse should be- helping animals in need!!

Louise Halsey, Worldwide Locations (posted 11th September) UK Qualified RVN

I am a Registered Veterinary Nurse from the West Midlands in Birmingham, United Kingdom. I've worked in the Veterinary industry for 17 years and have been a Qualified Veterinary Nurse for 6 years. Working in a range of Veterinary environments has helped make me the Nurse I am today, which include working for a busy referral centre and also for a large animal charity situated in the Midlands. I have also spent many years in general practice figuring out my key areas and learning and putting into practice new skills. After qualifying I went on to gain my ISVPS Nurses Certificate in Anaesthesia as I have a keen interest in this area and absolutely love Anaesthesia. I would absolutely love to use my nursing skills and work abroad as travel is a huge part of who I am and I love exploring the world. 

I love having a great team around me who I can bounce off and pride myself in being able to work well independently and as part of a close knit team. 
I have previously back packed around Sri Lanka, Vietnam and Cambodia and am keen to get back out into the wide world again, meet new people and challenge myself.
