Qualified Veterinary Nurse – Moon Bear Rescue Centre in China

Do you enjoy a challenge, and are you dedicated to animal welfare? We are looking for a qualified nurse to join our China Moon Bear Rescue Centre in Chengdu.

This is an outstanding opportunity for motivated individuals pursuing a career in wildlife care and welfare. The Veterinary Nurse will work as part of a highly skilled veterinary team to ensure the care of Asiatic black bears (moon bears), and domestic animals at our rescue centre. Appointment is full-time, five days a week plus scheduled weekend work. Out of hours work may be required.

Candidates should be highly motivated with plenty of initiative and should be comfortable with both clinical and non-clinical work. There is a high degree of autonomy in this position, and while you will work closely with other team members you will have distinct areas of responsibility.

You will contribute to the constantly evolving field of bear medicine and management and will be expected to have a high degree of clinical skill and a passion for ongoing self-education.

Ideally you should have between three and five years work experience in a large veterinary practice, wildlife rehabilitation centre, zoo or specialist referral centre. However, less experienced candidates with the appropriate personal attributes will be considered. Excellent written and oral communication skills are essential, and good humor and common sense are required. Applicants must be able to commit for two years.

Applicants must have basic computer skills including word and excel. Experience in captive wildlife nursing, rehabilitation or animal welfare work is beneficial but not essential.

You should be comfortable living and working in a small team within a rural setting.
