  • Accommodation on site

The ideal candidate will be: 

  • A licensed vet nurse with minimum one year clinic experience in a busy Western clinic.  Must have ability to help order supplies, handle administrative set up, and set up and run the necessary tools and equipment we will be buying.
  • Able to ride a scooter confidently, ideally licensed for motorbikes
  • Speak native or fluent English
  • Be up to date on vaccinations
  • MUST have travel/expat insurance

A small salary is provided but it is best to have either savings or some remote work to supplement your income

Must be mature, reliable, and hard working. As our animal rights organisation is vegan, staff should plan on only eating vegan on site. Some social media and community outreach skills preferable. Fundraising experience would be a big bonus.
