Surgery Information / Job Description
*PLEASE CLICK "APPLY" TO REGISTER FOR OUR 2019 VET GRADUATE PROGRAMME*
 
We established our Vet Graduate Development Programme in 2011 because we appreciate how daunting it can be to go straight into practice from the relative safety of your vet school’s training environment. Our 2 year programme is specially designed to help you develop your medical, surgical and softer skills such as communication, team work and leadership allowing you to train on the job with experienced and supportive Veterinary Partners as well as take paid leave to attend specialist CPD events every couple of months.  
 
Once you’ve applied we’ll contact you directly to find out a bit more about you and what you’re looking for as well as to tell you a bit about us and our Partners' practices. We want to help match you with the practice, people and location that are right for you.  The next step would then be to attend an assessment centre where we can meet face-face and find out more about each other in person. From there if you’re successful you would have an interview(s) at practice(s) which we and you felt could be the right fit.  
 
If you’d like more information on the programme or just to chat to us about what you’re looking for, then please call Louise Ellis on 01793 429878 or email vetgraduates@vets4pets.com.
 
Person Specification
We welcome applications from UK and International vet students and graduates. If you have graduated in 2018 or are due to graduate in 2019 with a relevant veterinary degree, and share our passion for delivering outstanding pet healthcare and great customer service, then we would love to hear from you!
