Port City Veterinary Referral Hospital's mission is to advance the veterinary profession through our leadership in medicine, education, business, and promotion of human-animal bond. In doing so, we are looking to add critical and essential members to our team.

This is a full time, multifunctional position which requires the following skills:

  • A self-motivator with high energy
  • Willingness to learn
  • Superior interpersonal skills and be able to develop and maintain positive working relationships with others

  • Listening and responding appropriately to the concerns of clients and other employees.
  • We are looking for someone who will embody the corporate culture in treating every client with the utmost courtesy and attention.

This hybrid position of client and animal care provides hands on animal experience as well as learning the business side of running the client service side of the hospital. Through COVID 19, the focus of the position is retrieving animals from owners’ vehicles and returning them to their owners after hospital visit. This position is an extension of our client services brought directly to these owners and their animals.

Post COVID 19, this position will continue through exploring additional hospital positions, such as a Veterinary Assistant with our medical teams or to continue under the scope of our client services within Port City and the Ethos umbrella. Our Veterinary Assistant Program provides individuals with limited veterinary background the opportunity to complete a curriculum blending both online and hands-on training while providing support and assistance to the veterinary medical staff. Once the program is completed, the individual is eligible to take the National Exam giving recognition as an Accredited Veterinary Assistant.
