about dkc

careening careers

DKC is the worst place in the world to work. The boss is intolerable. The staff are just mean. Most of us can only just barely get along with animals. Pay is terrible and only the owner of the company can afford fresh milk and cereal for morning breakfasts. No one is allowed annual leave and public holidays are considered an offence to the profit motive.

But it doesn't stop there!

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.

 


VETERINARY SURGEON

DKC Veterinary Clinic in Motor City, Dubai, a Dubai Kennels & Cattery company, is now recruiting for a second veterinarian; one with a keen interest in surgery and preferably extensive surgical experience. Our existing Managing Veterinarian focuses on diagnostics, internal medicine and critical care, so a very capable surgeon who will also contribute equally to the general practice will be the perfect fit for us. And if you have orthopaedic surgical experience, expertise and interest, though not a pre-requisite for the position, you would be our ideal candidate.

 

Ours is a new clinic, opening in December 2014 or January 2015, where the human and pet population densities are high and growing observably, and where veterinary services are sparse, so the potential for a busy, diverse and interesting caseload is very real. We are also very committed to ongoing education and personal/professional development as a fundamental precept of the clinic's philosophy and plans.

 

Our clinic comprises: four consulting rooms; separate dog, cat and isolation wards; dedicated ICU; top-flight digital radiology, ultrasound, full dental equipment including dental xray, comprehensive in-house diagnostic testing; dedicated theatre; and the most modern software systems which integrate almost everything into what we hope will be as close to a "paperless office" as one can get. We are excited and think you will be too. A great opportunity for a surgeon who wants to pursue and build their career with us in Dubai.

 

 

RECEPTIONIST -CUM- OFFICE COORDINATOR

We're opening a new veterinary clinic. We need to organise! We need to develop office-management procedures. We need to figure out where everything will go and how it will be done. We need to learn new software systems. We have to figure out and implement how we're going to handle customer calls and those who actually come into the clinic. We're starting from scratch and we need someone at our reception desk who's got an itch for gettin' things done and done right.

 

It will be tremendously busy, to say nothing of the stream of phone calls, emails, customers and their pets every single day. You must be perfectly fluent in English and obviously have instinctive organisational, task-management, computer and phone skills, all the while enjoying the occasional four-legged creature at your feet.

 

Have you got that particular itch?
