The Veterinary Specialty Centre of Newfoundland and Labrador is the province’s only specialty referral centre and 24 hour 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!
This is why we are opening a canine rehabilitation program at our hospital. To that end we are looking for a Rehabilitation Assistant to join the team working in these areas. 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. Assistants with experience in rehabilitation will be given preference, but recent graduates with an interest in canine rehabilitation are encouraged to apply. We offer fair wages, health and dental benefits, 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.
Located in the St John’s area of Newfoundland, our staff are able to enjoy their downtime experiencing a wide variety of activities. From hiking trails and other outdoor adventures, whale watching and historical sites, to a vibrant downtown with world renowned restaurants, a thriving arts scene, and a varied social scene, St John’s offers something for everyone.
