This long-term position would suit a veterinary surgeon with an interest in general practice. Must have at least 5 years' experience in order to be eligible to work in the United Arab Emirates. The right candidate will be fundamentally driven to provide excellent medical care for their patients and have keen people skills.
Our vets work five days a week on various rotas. We do not provide out-of-hours emergency call-out services, so a normalised lifestyle is our norm for you.
Our clinic has four consulting rooms, a decent-sized hospital and a pretty spacious operating theatre. We also have fully integrated practice management software, PACS, and a digital hospital board, which integrates with digital patient treatment and anaesthetic monitoring sheets for an entirely paperless working environment.
The tools of our trade include: an extensive in-house laboratory; a very expensive and awesomely capable digital x-ray machine; a sophisticated ultrasound machine; full dental equipment, including digital dental x-ray; laser therapy; and, of course, all the equipment required for orthopaedic surgery, among other things.
Total monthly remuneration is AED 35,000 (approx. 6,800), plus high-quality private medical insurance, including 25% of premium costs for the coverage of your dependents.
Holidays are based on local law providing 30 days annual leave per year, plus 10 public holidays per year. However, note that the 30 days annual leave includes any weekend days, which are taken off during the duration of the leave, so actual workdays off equals approximately 22 days a year.
In order to work in the UAE there is a lengthy process to register with the authorities, but we will provide all the support needed and cover the costs.
