    Pet insurance company, Vetsure, are the first to offer an absolutely free Graduate Friendly Practice Scheme to their network of accredited vets.

    It’s been nearly a year since first launching the Scheme at their annual Think Tank event in May. Think Tank involves an evolution of ideas and progression from key opinion leaders of the veterinary industry; the Graduate Scheme is a direct result of these events. There are currently 50 Vetsure Graduate Friendly Practices throughout the UK (with a further 10 currently going through the accreditation process) and when asked ‘Would you recommend the scheme to your peers?’100% of respondents said yes!

    The scheme was designed to help Vetsure accredited practices promote themselves to vet students and new graduates and, in turn, to offer a highly effective development program that will keep both graduate and practice happy.

    Ashley Gray, Managing Director at Vetsure comments: “The recruitment of quality veterinary surgeons is a continual challenge for all practices in the Vetsure network. We believe that the recruitment, support and development of new graduates is the only way forward – a view shared by the many Corporate Groups that now have their own Graduate Programs. Through the development of an entirely independent accreditation scheme, Vetsure have now started to promote the interests of their members at vet school career fairs.”

    Dr Dave Nichol, a veterinary performance manager expert and the writer of “So You’re a vet… Now what?” has been mentoring graduates for over ten years and has brought his wealth of industry knowledge to maximise the success of this scheme. Dr Dave has undertaken a huge amount of business training and research; building a reputation as a successful business leader within the veterinary industry. He has lead large teams of vets in corporate practices in Britain and has more recently owned/managed and successfully sold his two veterinary hospitals in Australia. Through Dave’s tried and tested methodology he has managed to bring the Vetsure Graduate Friendly Scheme to life.

    The scheme comprises the training and templates required to create a structured support program that guides veterinary business managers down the pathway to developing a competent, confident and profitable new graduate over the course of 12 months. It is not a scheme that will run on autopilot, it does require effort and ongoing commitment from practices that adopt it. The application of the graduate scheme allows training to be specifically catered to each graduate to suit each practice through a method of goals, objectives, webinars, coaching advice, templates and checklists.

    As well as being competitive, there is no doubt that the recruitment process can quite often be extremely costly to a vet practice, agency fees, job adverts, not to mention time investment! Not only does the use of the scheme logo help the practice stand out from competition, the scheme also provides support such as writing an effective job description and job boards, not to mention their collaboration tool the Vetsure ‘Hub’ app where practices can have open discussions with one another, sharing their expertise. Vetsure have now started to attend Careers days at the vet schools around the country with the objective of promoting Vetsure Graduate Friendly Practices.

    The scheme is completely free for Vetsure Accredited practices to utilise and Dr Dave Nicol is always on hand for additional support.

    Any practice wishing to discuss the Vetsure Graduate Friendly Scheme further can talk to their Vetsure area representative or visit http://www.vetsurevet.com/graduate/.
