Position: Registered Veterinary Technologist
Hospital: Animals First Clinic
Location: Grande Prairie, Alberta
Job Type: Part or Full Time
Experience: Registered Veterinary Technologist
Are you an RVT that is energized by helping pets? Do you have a kind heart, and high degree of integrity? If yes, then we want to hear from you!
Animals First Clinic – Not only our name, but our PHILOSOPHY! Our friendly and progressive team is seeking a full-time RVT to join our growing clinic in the city of Grande Prairie, Alberta.
Animals First Clinic is a bright, spacious, fast-paced Small Animal hospital. If you want to work in a fully-equipped clinic with 6 experienced RVTs who rally together to help pets and support each other every day, then you’ve found the role for you. The opportunities for professional growth in this modern practice are limited only by your imagination. With no specialists in our immediate area we truly get to practice the art of veterinary medicine. Our RVTs are excited to provide mentorship, and we even carry a strong orthopedic surgery case load. For RVTs interested in the orthopedic domain, this mentorship is readily available (although interest in Orthopedic Surgery is not required for this role). You will be scheduled for 40 hours over 5 days, and our On-Call rotation is shared with another hospital.
Grande Prairie is a vibrant and growing northern community of over 63,000. Our city offers all the amenities, with the added bonus of a Great Canadian Outdoor playground on your doorstep. Grande Prairie is the hub of the Alberta and BC Peace Region, and provides quick access for outdoor enthusiasts to world-renowned hiking, fishing, kayaking, skiing, snowshoeing, and river boating. Snowmobilers enjoy the supreme winter-wonderland trails that become increasingly secluded as one travels west into the Rocky Mountains, and between the months of May and October these trails transform into superb ATV and mountain-biking paths. Explore Big Mountain Creek Provincial Park or Crystal Lake nearby, or escape for an adventurous weekend to the mountain town of Grande Cache, or Jasper National Park.
Grande Prairie boasts incredible value. Property and housing are readily available, and particularly affordable in comparison with the other 5 largest cities in Alberta. Grande Prairie is the type of place that allows you to live on an acreage and still be at work in 10 minutes! Residents of Grande Prairie can even claim 50% of the Northern living allowance on their taxes, and a healthy employment market makes the city attractive for family members too. A regional College, Hospital, Art Gallery, and the Eastlink Centre multi-sport facility are just a few amenities frequented by locals, with the Bear Creek Folk Festival and Grande Prairie Stampede drawing many from out-of-province.
