Medical Lab Technologist
Career Opportunity with VSC
Do you enjoy a fast-paced work environment? Do you have a love of animals? Do you enjoy a challenge, and the opportunity to apply all the skills you learned in school? Do you want to expand your knowledge and skills in a unique way?
The Veterinary Specialty Centre of Newfoundland and Labrador is looking for a licensed Medical Lab Technologist to add to our growing team and support our hospital activities. We run a number of diagnostics on site and are looking for team members to run our in-house lab. No veterinary medicine experience is required - we will provide necessary cross training.
The Veterinary Specialty Centre of Newfoundland and Labrador is the province’s only veterinary specialty referral centre and 24 hours full service emergency clinic. We provide expert care, right here. Dr. Bailey’s goal in opening VSCNL was that no pet owner would have to leave the province to get the care their pet needs. We have the only board-certified surgeon and radiologist in the province, a CT scanner, offer chemotherapy, run a canine blood donor program and have the only ICU that is fully staffed 24 hours a day. When it comes to diagnosing and treating the pets of Newfoundland and Labrador, there is nothing we won’t do!
We are looking for someone who enjoys a challenge, is excited by opportunities to learn, is comfortable working alone, but is also ready to be part of a team that comes together to ensure the best care possible for our patients and their families. Our hospital is a learning and teaching environment, where we encourage all team members to expand and share their knowledge. Referral medicine and critical care is not scary, it’s exciting! We value team members who are not afraid to say, “I don’t know that yet, but I am happy to learn!”
Ours is a team that works hard, but also laughs hard, appreciating that many hands and a smile makes for light work. We are a hospital that cares strongly for our patients, but also for our staff. We want you to have fun both at and away from work. Team members often extend invitations to the whole team when getting together for food or community events, and as a hospital we throw two annual parties to give everyone a chance to relax and have fun together away from the clinic.
We believe in constant growth and learning. The successful candidate will have opportunities to learn and grow within our hospital and gain additional skills in veterinary patient care if motivated. We offer fair and competitive wages based on certification and experience, benefits including health and dental, subsidized pet insurance, a uniform allowance, and CE opportunities. We also provide access to a goofy clinic cat, who is always ready to lift your spirits on a hard day.
