Pilina Vet Practice Director Kailua, HI · Full time

A veterinary clinic is looking to hire a leader. The right fit for this position is a candidate who knows they are a leader - not just because of a past title. You listen, have patience, are judicious, communicate effectively, have no issues delegating, and, most of all, epitomize certain values and take responsibility for leading the Team.


You steer into issues - not away - with a “can we do better” attitude and a spirit of aloha.

You want to run a business - and not just because it sounds important.  You love a detailed P&L and have reconciled at COB in the past.  You get a feeling of satisfaction when everything matches and may or may not have a special celebration dance associated with that.

Inventory is your second love and you don’t mind picking up the phone and calling vendors.  In fact, you suggest that they should buy you lunch at The Shack next week.

You are an expert communicator via any medium to include regularly speaking in front of small groups, writing professional correspondence, and listening patiently to emotional clients.  You likely don’t make it a practice of writing paragraph-length texts to relatives or colleagues because you know the value of a phone call or face-to-face conversation.

You have at least a basic understanding of marketing and campaigns, to include Google analytics, landing pages, and ROI.  You want to keep growing your knowledge and skills in this area.

You can’t help but click on the “settings” tab of new sales systems and technologies, including VOIP phones and collaborative workspaces (Asana), to learn more about them and how to maximize their use amongst the Team.

You have references - people who would have no problem stepping up and saying, “Yup, this person is the real deal.”

Most importantly of all, you believe in our Purpose of cultivating connection and will epitomize our values of wellness, proactiveness, respect, fortitude, and transparency to the Team and clientele.

But finally, you don’t live to work but are keenly aware of your “Why” - something that puts a smile on your face and spurs you on to improve, adventure, and lean in every day.
