Our people Testimonials
Chanel – Registered Veterinary Nurse
I have been working in the veterinary industry for 8 years, where I spent 6 years in one practice to carry out my training, and have currently been at The Vet Morden for 2 years.
I was worried in my last practice that I wouldn’t find a practice to suit me where everybody gets on, because that’s impossible right? I thought so too but
EVERYBODY I work here with is so friendly and welcoming, it feels like one big family rather than just colleagues. The confidence everyone here has helped me to gain by supporting me, has allowed me to really enjoy the job that I do, and allowed me to expand my skills and knowledge by a long way. Nurses get to do so much more here than most practices and our skills are really used to our full potential. I would not choose anywhere else to work!
Donna – Reception
I have been working here at The Vet Morden for 6 months and I am loving it. Having chosen to change career paths, I had no previous experience in this sector but this was the best decision I have made.
I had been bringing my pets here for many years before I got the job as a receptionist and my experience as a client and employee have both been so positive.
I have been welcomed by open arms by every single member of the team and have formed some wonderful friendships with my colleagues.
Megan – Head Nurse
I have been working at The Vet for 3 years now and have worked my way up from RVN to senior, deputy and now head nurse. I would not be where I am today without the support of the team and management. It is a great clinic to work for with lots of interesting cases, friendly clients and amazing facilities. Career progression is nurtured and encouraged and I am example of that
Abby – Vet
I’ve been working at The Vet for three years and have been recently been made a deputy clinical director. This was a spontaneous move for me, I’d learnt from seeing others in the role and thought I had the skills and ambition to do it, and the team around me were really supportive and encouraging.
There are lots of new skills to gain experience in as part of a management role, after all we went to vet school, not business school! I’ve had great management and coaching support to help me feel confident evolving the business skills I need as a deputy clinical director. In the future, my plan is to work towards becoming a full clinical director. It’s great to have a career structure and an ambitious goal to aim towards here – this doesn’t happen in other practices. There are no boundaries to anyone within the business here: everyone’s happy to be contacted and to offer advice. I’ve found this aspect of support really valuable.
Working here has also opened up opportunities for postgraduate study, letting me pursue courses in emergency surgery which has been really helpful to help deal with some of the more common issues we face with our clientele. It’s a very young and dynamic place to work and doesn’t follow traditional rulebook: the focus is on helping you to see how you want to go forward in your career. It’s fast paced here which doesn’t suit everyone, but it’s also a culture where hard work and ambition are rewarded, and where people can uncover talent and skills they might not have known they had.
