Currently Hiring: Veterinarian

Who are we?

Applecross Veterinary Hospital is a locally-owned practice in Nanaimo, B.C. Located on
the west coast of B.C. on Vancouver Island, Nanaimo has mountains on one side and
the ocean on the other. It is the second biggest city on Vancouver Island and you can go
from the city center to the wilderness in minutes.

Applecross comprises a group of like-minded individuals that are passionate about
Veterinary Medicine. This is a glass-half-full crew, and although this industry can be
hard, we love what we do, and where we get to do it! It helps when you have a kick***
team and managers that truly care about you.

What does a week at the hospital look like?

Why don’t I tell you what it doesn’t look like!

We have no on-call shifts, as we have a 24-hour emergency center down the road. Our
office hours are 8:30 am to 5:30 pm, so no more ordering skip- the-dishes to the clinic or
scrounging the staff room for snacks late at night.

Say goodbye to constantly running around trying to find staff to help you, and never
having time to finish notes or callbacks! All our vets have a dedicated RVT and VA and
we have multiple resource blocks during the day.

Have you forgotten what a weekend is? Let us remind you! We are closed on Sundays
and Stat-holidays. Our vets all rotate between 2, 3 and 4-day weekends!

What do we have?

What don’t we have…We could go on and on about the services we offer and the
equipment we have. We could talk about our competitive salary and all our benefits. And
while all that stuff is great (I assure you it is!) We feel like clinic culture, and having a
team that has your back is far more important.

Why work for us?

Applecross Veterinary Hospital is the clinic you’ve been dreaming of. A clinic that is
passionate about what we do and why we do it. We live for slobbery kisses, tail wags,
head buts, and purrs. We know that life is so much better with pets in our lives. We do
what we do to serve and protect the animal-human bond.

Work for us, and let us remind you of your why.
