Job Details

DKC Veterinary Clinic is looking for a qualified veterinary nurse to join our busy and growing 8-vet practice.

We have a lovely clinic (well... we think it's lovely). Take a look for yourself:

The Package


  • Salary:  AED 16,000 (£3,500) per month, with an increase to AED 17,000 (£3,770) after completing the first year
  • And yes, your salary is tax-free

Workweek and Shifts:  Your workweek will be 5 days only, which means that when you work a weekend, on a rota, you will get 2 days off in lieu during the following week. 

Medical Insurance:  Full, private medical coverage, including some dental and optical, as well as discounted rates for your dependants, if you bring them with you. (Who doesn't have a few dependants lying around, eh?)

Leave:  30 days annual leave per year (calculated in a complicated way such that it works out to approximately 22 workdays per year), plus 10 public holidays per year (though we reserve the right to have you work a public holiday, paid back in lieu).

Visa:  We take care of most of it for you, leading you through the process, and doing as much on your behalf as possible.

Your Relocation:  Although we do not pay for your relocation or accommodation, we will meet you at the airport and we'll put you up in temporary accommodation and cover the cost of a rental vehicle for you for your first month. We can also help with the rent down payments for the permanent accommodation you find, as rental agreements work differently here in Dubai. We and our staff will generally give you all the guidance and help that we can. Our practice is busy, busy, busy, open 7 days a week, with varying patient and surgical loads and consultations ongoing throughout the day. And yes, we have all the modern equipment, but the details of all that stuff can be discussed in an interview ~ too boring to put in an advert, right? (Yawn!)

Dubai is an interesting place to live and/but a BIG change from the UK. A candidate will be encouraged by us to talk with our other employees directly about their experience and life here.

Our boarding & daycare and relocations facility in Umm Ramool has beautiful trees and other flora all over the place... but they're all artificial because the company doesn't want to spend the money on watering. And our veterinary clinic in Motor City is... well... a hive of bacteria and disease.

We have a fleet of vehicles for animal transport that look very smart but in fact the engines have been removed in favour of a team of hamsters under the hood... think of the savings on petrol!

Our computers are still running Windows 95 and instead of Microsoft Office, we employ ball-point pens, paper and finger-staining carbon sheets.

We have nice looking DKC shirts for all the staff, but all the staff get only one each and are required to wash and iron them every single day before coming to work.

We could go on... 

Yet somehow... somehow... we don't know how... but somehow... we've got lots of staff who have been here with us for years, including quite a few who have been with us since Dubai was still mostly desert.

We're a busy, busy, busy place with thousands and thousands of animals coming into our boarding & daycare and veterinary care, or being relocated around the world, every single year. And our customers seem unhappy with us only occasionally. Go figure!

So, if you're looking for an unusual place to work... if you want to work hard... if you love animals and if they generally love you back... if you have no fear of unrelenting demands on you to be absolutely your best and to get even better... and if you instinctively understand and want an informal but very professional place to spend your days and earn your daily bread, then we might just be the place for you.
