Christmas is Almost Here!

As the Christmas Holidays are now upon us (how did that happen, by the way?!) we felt it was a good time to wish all our lovely candidates, clients and other followers a very Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year! 2018 has been yet another amazing year for us, and we couldn’t have done it without your continued support, so thank you to each and every one of you.
Let’s take a look at what’s been going on this year at VN Recruitment…!

December 2018

As many of you will have seen, we have been running a number of Christmas-themed giveaways on our Facebook page throughout the month for you and your pets to enjoy – it seems like everyone’s had a lot of fun and it’s great to see so many of you getting involved. Not to mention all the great photos of your pets getting ready for Christmas.. we’re loving it! We’ve announced two lucky winners already: Princess Amore won the first week’s dog-themed goody box, followed by Carly Bennett last week who will soon be receiving an abundance of treats for herself and her lovely cat, Clive. Our third and final prize draw will be announced on Friday for our small furry owners, so if you haven’t entered already make sure you head over to our Facebook page! Click here to enter. 

Earlier in the year…

As many of you know, VN Recruitment grew this year! Laura welcomed Helen and Manda to the team back in August, and as a result we have been able to massively grow our candidate base, as well as the number of practices we are helping with recruitment. We have had hundreds of Vets, Nurses, Assistants and Practices sign up with us this year, and as a result have been able to help more people than ever before in matching the perfect person to their ideal role. As a friendly, independent and unique recruitment team, this is the best possible outcome we could hope for and has only motivated us even more to strive for an better year in 2019.

We also visited BVNA Congress and London Vet Show and loved having the chance to meet so many of you in person, and have plenty more events lined up already for 2019 – so watch this space. Throw in a selection of really enjoyable client visits, a few workshops with Student Nurses at local universities, and even a day in the life of an RVN for Laura with one of our lovely clients in Cambridge, and we think it’s safe to say we’ve had a fantastic year!

Special Mentions…

It’s been a crazy, busy year for us at the VN Recruitment office, and we think it’s safe to say that things just wouldn’t have run so smoothly without the help of our amazing office assistants… Archie and Annie the Cocker Spaniels!

Archie co-founded VN Recruitment with Laura back in 2015 and is a wise and experienced office dog – he is a great help to us and has just had his 4th birthday. We would say his greatest strength at work is snoozing on the job for long periods of time and helping us clean out our crisp packets…

Annie is the newest member of the team and joined us in November – she is just over 3 months old now and has settled in and made herself quite comfortable! Annie is quickly learning the tricks of the trade and proving to be very good at attacking pesky telephone wires, Archie’s leftover crisp packets, and many other dangerous hazards in the workplace. We have high hopes for her future here at VN Recruitment!

So, that’s all from us for now – we would like to wish you all a wonderful Christmas and New Year, and hope you all have the chance to enjoy a well-earned break. Here’s to a fantastic 2019 together!

Love from Laura, Manda, Helen, Archie and Annie x
