The ideal candidate should be highly motivated, enthusiastic, fun-loving, and possess a positive personality. This role provides an excellent opportunity to work alongside a highly experienced and exotic certified veterinary team.

Facilities include dedicated wards for cats, dogs, small mammals (cold ward), and exotics (hot ward), as well as specialized units such as dog/cat ICU, exotics ICU, and isolation kennels.
