Who are Vets4Pets?
We are a large Veterinary group in the UK with a national network of small animal veterinary practices comprising of our two brands Vets4Pets and Companion Care vets which are part of the Pets At Home Vet Group. Our pets and clients are at the very heart of everything we do and we are proud to deliver the highest standards of veterinary healthcare for all of our clients and their pets! We encourage preventative healthcare to our clients with our wide portfolio of healthcare plans tailored to their pets’ needs as well as actively promoting pet insurance in conjunction with our partner, PetPlan.
What is our International Vet programme?
Our International Vet Programme is available to vets that have qualified outside of the UK and provides a structured, developmental route to becoming a confident and successful vet. The programme will run for a period of 3-12 months, depending upon your individual needs and provides you with the opportunity to build your clinical skills and knowledge whilst working in a first opinion small animal practice, in the UK.
What can I expect from the programme?
From day one you will be assigned a senior Vet who will act as your mentor and will provide support throughout the duration of your programme. Covering all aspects of life in practice, the programme is hands-on, giving you the opportunity to interact with clients, conduct routine health appointments (including sick pets) build upon your surgical skills and create your own client base.
When you join programme, you’ll complete an induction programme within the practice introducing you to our business, your colleagues and life in a first opinion, small animal practice. Within the first month your mentor will make an assessment of your current skills and abilities and then provide you with a tailored, structured development plan focussing on the three key areas: consultation sign off, surgery expectations and surgical sign off. Your progress will be reviewed regularly and you’ll receive continuous support and guidance through constructive feedback and general supervision.
What are we offering?
You will complete the programme within 3 - 12 months depending on the progress of your clinical and personal development. To assist you, an established and experienced vet will provide guidance and you will have the support of a wider clinical team, including Nurses.
You will be paid a salary of £22,500 (on a pro rata basis) whilst you are enrolled on the programme and upon successful completion you will be eligible to apply for a permanent position in any of our practices across the UK, or you may get the opportunity to stay where you are.
Our first opinion practices are purpose built, and well equipped with facilities including but not limited to;
- Digital X-ray
- Operating theatre
