  • Why do some veterinary practices have no issues with recruitment?
    Two pretty much identical jobs: same area of the country, similar role responsibilities, similar remuneration, similar business size and structures. Yet, one ad receives 4 quality applicants and the other receives none. Why?

    Both veterinary practices have clear plans for the future and are investing in their current teams and business to ensure provision of a quality service for clients. Both practices could be a great place to work. However, one of these practices has a reputation as a good employer, the other has none.
