Vacancy for veterinarian with LSPCA in Malawi, southern Africa   
Posted 12/07/2017
 
A unique opportunity has arisen to work with our partners at the LSPCA in Malawi. 
 
The Lilongwe Society for the Protection and Care of Animal’s work is expanding and evolving all the time; they have just moved to fantastic new premises, which enables them to expand their programmes including the Veterinary Clinic facilities and Centre for Animal Welfare.
 
This is an exciting opportunity to work both at a small animal practice and at farm animal community veterinary clinics in the villages around Lilongwe. The LSPCA are also delivering a new donkey health and welfare project across the Lilongwe district, so you will have the opportunity to advise on the veterinary aspects of this project such as preventative healthcare and first aid.  
 
Reporting to the Veterinary Clinic Manager, your role will be to provide the highest standards of care to clients at the small animal clinic in Lilongwe. LSPCA is the only dog and cat rescue organisation in Lilongwe, so you will also be responsible for the animals on site through the rehoming programme. LSPCA works closely with the newly opened Veterinary School so you will have the opportunity to deliver basic clinical skills training to the students.  
 
The LSPCA clinic is the only full-time clinic and the only full-time Centre for Animal Welfare in Lilongwe, and the best equipped in the country. The clinic leads in diagnostics and surgery.  It has been running for seven years and has a loyal client base, running as a not-for-profit clinic with all proceeds supporting our charitable community work to improve animal welfare. 
 
The case-load is varied and this is an excellent opportunity to expand your skills and knowledge to treat conditions you would never see in the UK. The LSPCA will also encourage and support you in developing specialisms or conducting research where time and resources allow.  
 
Person specification
The LSPCA looking for an enthusiastic vet with at least one year’s experience, although new graduates are encouraged to apply. They are looking for someone with experience in travelling to or working in developing countries. You will need to be flexible and enjoy a challenge, conditions at the community clinics are ‘back to basics’ so you need to be adaptable, but job satisfaction that you are helping animals and owners who would never otherwise see a vet is huge!
 
The role is six days a week, with some emergency out of hours work in rotation with the Veterinary Clinic Manager, one other full time vet and supported by the veterinary nurse team and animal carers.  

Salary and condtions
The LSPCA is a charity so is not able to offer a competitive international salary. The salary is $500/month, plus a commission of out of hours fees, on-site accommodation in a shared house, five weeks annual leave and private health insurance in Malawi. LSPCA will cover the cost of a veterinary permit and arrange for your local registration to practice. You will have access to a shared vehicle for work use and some personal use.
 
You will need to arrange and cover the cost of your own flight, but this will be reimbursed if you stay for a minimum of 12 months. If you are interested in a shorter placement with LSPCA please contact them for more information.  You will join an enthusiastic and supportive team and while developing new veterinary skills and sharing yours with the team, you can also enjoy getting to know one of the most beautiful countries in Africa with opportunities for safaris and relaxing at Lake Malawi!   
 
To apply for this position please send your CV and a brief covering letter outlining your experience and your reasons for wanting to work in Malawi to: Lieza Swennen, LSPCA Programmes Director Lieza.Swennen@lilongwespca.org. Application deadline is 30th of August 2017.
