Job Title: Director of Operations

Location: Central Texas

Who We Are

Emancipet is a nonprofit on a mission to make high-quality spay/neuter and veterinary care affordable and accessible to all pet owners. We manage an expanding national network of high-quality, low-cost clinics; offer customized training and consulting programs to animal welfare organizations nationwide; and advocate for strategies and public policy that improve the lives of pets in underserved communities. Since 1999, Emancipet has spayed or neutered nearly 250,000 dogs and cats and in 2016 will care for more than 100,000 pets.

Why We Do It

We believe that every pet owner loves their pets and wants what is best for them. But we know that sometimes spay/neuter procedures and basic care like vaccinations, flea and heartworm prevention, and heartworm treatment are financially out of reach and inaccessible in some communities. We believe that making spay/neuter services and veterinary care more affordable and accessible improves the lives of animals and the people who love them…. We’re here for love.

Where We Are

The Central Texas region of Emancipet is composed of five clinics located in Austin, Pflugerville, and Killeen including a mobile clinic that travels to five counties in the region. In January of 2016, Emancipet and Animal Trustees of Austin completed a merger in order to expand the types of services provided at Emancipet clinics like heartworm treatments and specialized surgeries. Emancipet also provides free spay/neuter and other preventative services to residents of Travis County through a contract with the City of Austin. Collectively, the clinics employ around 70 technicians and doctors to perform more than 27,000 spay/neuter surgeries and 96,000 healthy pet visits each year. Further growth in the number of clinics and operating hours is expected as demand for services in the region is increasing rapidly.

Who We Need

We are seeking a Director of Operations (DO) to oversee a team of managers and administrative staff working to make sure all clinics meet Emancipet’s bottom-lines of quality medical care, financial sustainability, and transformative service. The DO will ensure each clinic operates at capacity according to Emancipet’s SOP’s as well as our core values of teaching & learning, excellence, compassionate service, and optimism. Responsibilities will include oversight of physical maintenance; budget; inventory management; and employee hiring, training, coaching, and engagement. The DO will work closely with the Chief Medical Officer to ensure technicians are providing high quality medicine as well as with the Chief Financial Officer, Chief Operating Officer, accounting department, and resource/call center to resolve issues, increase efficiencies and provide transformative experiences for staff and clients. The DO will implement operational changes across clinics and oversee changes within clinics.

Our ideal candidate has a deep, personal passion for our mission and is committed to serving the people and pets of the Central Texas area. The candidate will have a demonstrated record of servant leadership and maintaining high employee engagement. The candidate is detail oriented; focuses on employee strengths as a way to stimulate personal and group excellence; takes great satisfaction from being busy and productive; and can take a direction, follow through, and make corrections necessary to stay on track. Candidates should have a bachelor’s degree and a minimum of three years supervising teams of ten or more staff. Experience in the field of veterinary medicine is preferred, but not required; management experience in other fields including human medicine is a bonus.

Is It You?

There’s a chance you may be our ideal Director of Operations (DO) if you meet the description above, and if:

  • You love the art and science of managing people – nothing makes you happier than seeing someone you manage exceed your expectations (and their own)!
  • The circus ran away to join you – the people around you are compelled to follow your ideas and vision.
  • You have inside jokes with people you have never met – you connect quickly with clients, staff, and Emancipet supporters.
  • You won the World Series of Poker with a deck of UNO cards – you are the ultimate optimist and believe any challenge has a solution.
  • You start writing invitations to your cinco de mayo party on el primero de enero – you think far ahead with attention to who needs to be involved and when.
  • Your a stickler for detail, and you’ve already noticed the mistake in this sentence.
  • You put the “do” in DO – you have never-ending energy and a compulsion to cross things off your task list.
  • You once went to a psychic… to warn her – you anticipate problems before they happen and fix them.

Who We Are

We manage an expanding national network of high-quality, low-cost clinics; offer customized training and consulting programs to animal welfare organizations nationwide; and advocate for strategies and public policy that improve the lives of pets in underserved communities.  Since 1999, Emancipet has spayed or neutered nearly 250,000 dogs and cats and in 2016 will care for more than 100,000 pets.

Why We Do It

We believe that every pet needs and deserves high-quality preventive veterinary care to keep them healthy and happy for their entire lives. But we know that sometimes spay/neuter procedures and basic care like vaccinations and flea and heartworm prevention are financially out of reach and inaccessible in some communities. We’re here to change that.  We believe that making spay/neuter services and veterinary care more affordable and accessible improves the lives of animals and the people who love them.

 Who We Need

We are seeking a veterinarian who will serve as a HQHVSN Surgeon and/or Preventive Care Veterinarian at our Austin area clinics. Our HQHVSN surgeons are responsible for the comfort and safety of all surgical patients in their care at Emancipet and for performing high-volume spay/neuter surgery in accordance with our high quality standards and SOPs. Our Preventive Care Veterinarians provide well pet services to our patients.  All Emancipet Veterinarians are responsible for sharing medical information with clients with compassion and empathy and developing professional, friendly, and mutually-beneficial relationships with local veterinarians, promoting Emancipet and our mission within the veterinary community.

Our ideal Veterinarian has a deep, personal passion for our mission, is committed to serving the people and pets of the Central Texas area, and is an outstanding communicator.  Candidates must have, at a minimum, a DVM and be eligible to obtain a license to practice veterinary medicine in Texas and eligible to obtain a DEA license. At least one year of experience as a high volume spay/neuter surgeon (25-30 surgeries per five-hour shift) is preferred. Training is available, however, for candidates with a strong desire and aptitude to become successful high volume surgeons and who demonstrate an outstanding culture fit.  Working exclusively in preventive care is also a possibility.  Our days and hours of operation reflect the needs of our clients, so Saturdays and some early evenings will be required.

 Is It You?

There’s a chance you may be our ideal veterinarian if you meet the description above, and if:

  •  Even though you often find yourself teaching others, you live to learn more and geek out on JAVMA articles
  • After a long day of helping 50+ families and their pets, you still have the energy to hit the town with your friends
  • You have a bunch of gross pictures on your phone (of surgeries!) that you can only share with other veterinarians
  • You don’t take life (or yourself) too seriously and are quick to laugh!
  • You would love to be part of a team that has fun every day, but and considers medical excellence is a bottom line

Interested?

Send a cover letter explaining your interest in this position, along with your resume, to Emancipet Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Helmueller: [email protected]

Note: Emancipet is an equal opportunity employer. Position is open until filled. Salary and benefits are
