“Regular appraisals help you identify where you are in terms of your role and career progression and also ensure that your own needs are being met. They also provide a chance to talk about your opinions and ideas for the practice.” Jen White, Clinical Director, The Vet Morden
“I’ve had great management and coaching support to help me feel confident evolving the business skills I need as a deputy clinical director” Abby Winchester, Deputy Clinical Director, The Vet Southampton
Everyone’s career aspirations are different. We offer the very best facilities, training and career progression opportunities to help you realise your ambitions – whatever these may be. Providing unparalleled professional development support to help you reach your potential is one of the many things that sets us apart from traditional practice.
We believe that people thrive when they’re given support to focus on what matters to them. Along with everyone else at The Vet, we’ll give you a structured professional development programme and a dedicated line manager to oversee your professional growth. You’ll receive an appraisal every three months, giving you a valuable chance to receive constructive feedback and to voice your own ideas and opinions.
We’re a rapidly expanding business with exciting opportunities for career progression. We’ll give you the chance to take on more responsibility if you want it, along with leadership, business and management skills training, which we know is such an important part of modern practice. You’ll also have access to a diverse peer support network, with a business manager working alongside a clinical director in each clinic. We’re keen to hear from both experienced vets and those new to the profession – and we’ve just launched a brand new programme to help ambitious new and recent graduates fast-track their careers.
Working here will give you the chance to build new skills and take on new challenges, helping everyone to make the most of their abilities. If you’re a nurse, we’re passionate supporters of schedule 3 work. This means we give you priority to do challenging work including dental scale and polishes, nurse clinics, 2nd vaccinations, pre and post op checks, as well as a high level of involvement in client consultations. If you’re a vet, this means more time freed up to tackle more complex cases and for case management.
We invest in our team and offer generous CPD allowance to help you develop skills that you’re passionate about. This creates a thriving working environment where you can constantly improve and deliver consistent gold standard care. Our people say that The Vet’s support has helped them progress their careers in ways they never thought possible until working here.
