  • Company values

    The AKC team is a hard working, honest, supportive group with high standards of care in a friendly, collaborative environment.

  • What makes your organization a great place to work?
    1. Excellent Client Compliance The Arabian Kennel Club (AKC for short) is in the fortunate situation of having a clientele with a significant disposable income. Unlike other places where you would either not be able to practice the level of medicine you would like/the patient needs, or where you would spend considerable time discussing and approving financial estimates, our veterinarians rarely have financial conversations and diagnostic/treatment plans are rarely altered due to financial constraints.
    2. Work-Life Balance The work schedule is organized in to 30 to 35 hour weeks (depending on weekend and/or off-site clinic rotation coverage). You will most often times have your afternoon/evenings free when you are not on-call. On call is shared between 2 to 3 veterinarians, averaging 2 weeks a month. Saudi Arabia is a perfect home base for traveling the world with many destinations within easy reach and the compound has many different sports or hobby groups to fill your free time.
    3. No corporate oversight Unlike many corporate owned practices these days, the AKC relies solely on practicing good medicine per each veterinarians moral and ethical code. We do not have average client transaction goals, bottom lines to achieve, statistical analysis of different metrics, corporate programs to adhere to, etc. We are a group of highly experienced and educated doctors with the luxury to practice how we see fit, without being compared to each other or subjected to a competitive production scheme, feeling pressured to fulfill any corporate objectives of profitability.
  • Describe an ideal employee at your organization

    Our candidate must be a veterinarian educated in either the UK, US, South Africa, Australia or New Zealand and have at least 5 years of experience. Proficiency in small animal medicine and routine surgeries (spay, neuter, dental, mass removal, etc) is required. Skills in soft tissue and/or orthopedic surgery is a bonus.  Ideally, there will be some equine experience, but must at least have the willingness to see a few horses a month for anything from vaccinations to lameness to colic. Experience or the willingness to see exotics is a bonus but not required.

    Our candidate must be a team-player, flexible, honest, and comfortable working in a fast-paced environment.

    This topic is mostly not applicable for our practice set-up, but we are always flexible of emergency time off or unexpected family situations that may arise.

    Our work week consists of appointments or surgeries from 7am to 1pm on week days and then every other weekend from 9am to 1pm. Each week, one of the veterinarians will be on a “districts” schedule which entails seeing appointments from 4 to 6pm on two week days and on the other days visiting the off-site clinics within a 1 to 2 hour drive or being in the main clinic for the normal day.

  • Diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives you have

    We are a diverse team with staff members coming from over 7 different countries and speaking many different languages.

  • Structured career progression initiatives at the workplace

    Our vet team does not have a “chief veterinarian” but we each fulfill different leadership roles per our strengths and interests.

  • Animal welfare policies and/or lowering barriers to care/spectrum of care initiatives

    Our medicine and surgery protocols are consistent with US American Animal Hospital Association standards and/or RCVS Practice Standards and considered the highest level of care in the country.
