SEEKING FT/PT GP Associate Veterinarian
Full Job Description
Job: Olympia, WA. FT/PT Small animal only GP, no after hours. If you are looking for a workplace that will appreciate you and your work, see you as a human being, provide support where you need it, and encourage you in your professional goals, we are the place! Full time is a 4-4.5 day work week, pro-sal 22% of gross PLUS benefits, with base negotiable based on experience, no negative accrual, true paid time off (PTO activated after 30 days), CE stipend (covered licenses, PLIT, etc), EAP (employee assistance program from ESI), medical/dental/vision for full-time. Mentoring provided to all new/newer grads or in specific areas requested. Applicants will have full access to staff and associates to ask questions about the workplace. We are looking for a veterinarian who values positivity in the workplace, and has an interest in general practice, to join our independently owned and operated full-service GP in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. If you love rivers, lakes, mountains, trees and greenery, you will love the PNW. We are about 20 minutes south of Olympia, WA. Common hobbies amongst our staff are horses, hiking, kayaking, paddleboarding, fishing, camping and gardening. We have a wonderful team of well-trained and versatile support staff, EzyVet practice software, digital radiographs, in house labs, all the normal stuff (in addition to cold laser, cryotherapy and a couple other complementary modalities). What is not normal is how hard we work to prioritize boundaries, treat each other with respect, and never stop striving for that sweet spot in the middle of doing everything we can for our patients and clients and maintaining our team members’ quality of life both at work and at home. We prioritize a learning environment—here to get it right, not to be right. Our team members all take pride and ownership in our culture and environment. This area has a good wage to cost-of-living ratio compared to much of the West Coast. We are rural enough to have a good amount of space around us and to see green grass out the windows, but we are still minutes from I-5 and easy access to PDX and SEA airports. About a 3 minutes drive to services for lunch time (food, coffee, gas, etc). Currently there are two full-time and one part-time veterinarian. Practice is under new ownership as of one year ago, and the owner is a member of Uncharted Veterinary Community. Our website is currently under construction and does not reflect the current team. We have the best veterinary team around, and we strive to keep veterinary medicine a joyful and engaging endeavor. On Facebook and IG @scattercreekanimalclinic
