Sometimes you want to go where everybody knows your name.
Imagine a place where you can be happy. I mean truly happy doing the job you adore. Fair Isle could be that place.
Fair Isle Animal Clinic is a mixed animal practice on Vashon Island in the Puget Sound. We have been a cornerstone of this wonderful, quirky, animal-loving island community for 39 years. We are seeking an Associate Veterinarian who finds joy in veterinary medicine and client interaction. We are seeking a colleague who accepts and gives team support, who is brave enough to learn, and curious enough to grow. We are seeking an individual who realizes that none of us are as perfect as our best moment or as poor as our lowest. We recognize veterinary medicine is not for the faint of heart, but here at Fair Isle we make sure it is deeply rewarding.
Fair Isle’s primary patients are dogs and cats, but we will see just about anything. We offer strong mentoring and are happy to bring associates up to speed in species that are currently outside their comfort zone. New grads are encouraged to apply.
Fair Isle has the usual specs you would want, including electronic medical records, digital radiography, ultrasound, therapeutic laser, in house lab suite, licensed technicians and experienced support staff. We have a solid compensation, benefits, and CE package. Our regular work schedule is 3 days per week, but can be scaled up if an associate needs to have a higher salary. We promote life and work harmony. Imagine if your work/life balance suddenly became a LIFE/work balance. At Fair Isle, it can!
Fair Isle Animal Clinic is an independent veterinary clinic. Our independence lets us choose the diagnostics and treatments our patients need, and set our own high standards to match best practices rather than a spreadsheet. We mentor new associates, including recent graduates, to those high standards. Your learning will happen within an experienced team rather than by directives from a corporate office.
Of utmost importance to Fair Isle is a good fit with our practice team and our clients. Can you imagine being part of a dedicated crew like that?
We cherish humor, earnestness, and an appreciation of the ridiculous.
We reward excellent communication and emotional intelligence.
We stand together as a team, we stand together with our clients, we stand united in our goal to provide excellent care to the animal residents of our island. Stand with us! We need someone like you!
So, what are you waiting for? Please send us your cover letter and CV. We look forward to meeting you.
You want to be where everybody knows your name.
Stop imagining, and start living your best life...at FAIR ISLE!
Vashon Island itself is a uniquely amazing place to live. We have beautiful shoreline and access to water-based activities, as well as hiking, biking, and riding trails. It is rural yet close to cities and an international airport. Vashon has a fantastic school system and is a wonderful place for families. Vashon’s community is tightly knit and inclusive.
