If you choose to go permanent, we’ll do everything we can to place you, in your perfect position.
Advantages of becoming a permanent vet
A permanent position looks good on your CV. It can show commitment to a company, helping you build your career and professional gravitas. Perhaps yielding more rewards like promotion, which you won’t be eligible for on a fixed contract.
The industry has been listening to what vets say they really want. With 85% of the industry now owned by corporates, the workplace has changed. A work life balance has become one of the most important requirements. There are more specialist night roles, meaning no OOHs for many of the practicing vets. Practices now have a referral culture, with veterinary students specialising more or building on their talent with other qualifications.
In return for the above, you may be offered some of the below as part of your package.
- Regular paid CPD
- Employer supported pension scheme
- Holiday and long service benefits
- A day off for your birthday
- Sick Pay
- Private Medical Scheme
- RVC Membership Fees
- Long Service awards
- Cycle to work scheme
- Maternity / Paternity leave
A permanent job as a vet can give you financial benefits and a steady lifestyle. An opportunity to settle in an area and get to know your local clients.
