​Night & Day Vet position in Hong Kong - Tai Wai Small Animal & Exotic Hospital

Join a progressive and busy 24-hour hospital (50% exotics, 50% small animals), with

exceptional facilities: 16-slice CT, digital radiography, various sizes flexible and rigid Storz

endoscopes, ultrasound, echocardiography, laparoscopic surgery, ultrasound, cryosurgery,

IDEXX lab suite/Abaxis machines, IM3 dental x-rays, dedicated hot and cool wards, and

specialized canine, feline and exotic ICU units.

Their friendly and supportive team of 11 vets includes 4 exotic certificate holders. They pride

themselves in providing their vets with more support staff than the average clinic: each vet has

a team of two Vet Nurses assigned, to assist them throughout the day with all aspects of

clinical work, including translation (English is the official language of the Hospital). Their night

vets take care of canine, feline and exotic emergencies with their dedicated team of Nurses

and Vet Techs.

They strive to work towards excellence in ongoing training and education, and to create an

enjoyable and rewarding work environment. They also often enjoy a good laugh together!

Their vets enjoy free access to several scientific publications (including the Journal of

Emergency and Critical Care, JSAP, JFMS, VetClinNorthAm and JAVMA) and access to

specialist advice via the VetCT Teleconsulting service.

They are close to the sea, mountains and country parks, yet only a short drive to exciting

Central district, packed with skyscrapers, clubs and shopping malls. The subway system is

one of the best in the world! Outside the bustling city centre, there are stunning hiking trails

with lush vegetation, country parks, beaches and several outlying islands waiting to be

explored! Hong Kong boasts an amazing food culture, with countless options varying from

refined Michelin star restaurants to charming local street food stalls.

Who they are looking for:

They are looking for enthusiastic and caring small animal vets who will cover shifts with the

Night Team and also spend time on days developing their skills alongside their experienced

certificate veterinarians. Experience is highly regarded, but they also welcome applications

from recent graduates, including National Taiwan University graduates. Previous knowledge

of exotics is not needed, as they will provide comprehensive training in exotics emergency

medicine and surgery.

No need to speak Cantonese, as English is an official language in Hong Kong, and

everyone can speak English in the Hospital.

They offer:

  • The position offers either full time on nights, or a flexible combination of day and night work

(working a few months on nights followed by a few months on days, on rotation with the

other night vets) depending on candidate preference.

The working pattern for the night shift is of 3 nights one week, 4 nights the next week; the

day shift pattern consists of a regular 5-day week.

  • A dedicated team of 3-4 experienced assistants to help with the clinical work.

  • A base salary starting from HK$ 70,000 (depending on experience) plus production bonus

on top: their night vets can earn in excess of HK$100,000 per month.

  • Support with relocation expenses (VISA application, flight, quarantine expenses)

  • Generous CPD allowance, including two weeks CPD leave.

  • Annual leave of 20 days plus 13 days’ public holidays

  • A great team of Vets, Vet Assistants, Vet Nurses and a supportive Administrative Team
