Written and verbal communication are two important skill sets that candidate must possess. We are looking for a candidate with a positive attitude who is willing to jump in and help the team. Our ideal candidate can multi-task in a fast-paced environment. Previous veterinary experience is preferred; however, we are willing to train the right candidate.
