Climbing the career ladder in Vet practice
This is the website dedicated to veterinary careers, enhancing the development of our future practising vets. We encourage membership from vet students and vet graduates through to establishing themselves in a long term stakeholding role in veterinary practice. We are geared to helping young vets to establish a role in practice ownership, in whatever form that may take. We also encourage membership from those who can offer the new generation the benefit of their expertise in the vet practice arena. This may include proprietor vets, practice managers, practice consultants, financial advisers and academics at the practice interface. And others! If you have relevant experience to offer, then please join up and join in the conversation.
Whilst the site includes some descriptive background to the world of the vet in practice, the site is really about you...
Forums, Twitter, Facebook – the choice is yours
Please join in by whichever route you choose. And tell your veterinary colleagues...... please tell your colleagues!!!! We all have experiences to share and questions to ask about our vet careers - whether looking for your first job, climbing the ladder, or buying into a partnership...
Now a request...... whatever you say, please keep it clean - and absolutely no slanderous or libellous contributions. Any such content will be removed as soon as possible. If you have a grievance or problem to air, keep the context general and avoid personal attacks.
And finally a few words from Liz Mossop -
Starting out in practice is an exciting part of a veterinary career - but it can also be stressful. The complexities of entering the workplace often throw up some tricky questions! Vet in Practice will help young vets find out information they need from a network of other new grads and more experienced members of the profession. It will also help those considering the next step in practice ownership a few years down the line.

It seems that we are going through yet another phase of new practice units opening their doors. Whether they be another of the multi-coloured, super-branded JVP corporates, a low cost or vaccine clinic, or another branch of an existing practice – competition has never been hotter. And this is quite odd really in such hard [...]
There are some questions to consider when planning your family and your future role, you certainly don’t need to know the answers to them at this stage but the more informed you are the greater your options and the more in control you will feel. These are: Do I want to work full or [...]
