Operating from our cosy office here in York, and hiding from the chilly weather, we’ve been really busy lately – which is great! Here’s a little insight in to what we’ve been up to over the past few weeks…

Last week, we attended the London Vet Show – which was a brilliant experience. It was wonderful to meet so many people in the industry – clients, candidates and all the other exhibitors – and see so much happening. We didn’t exhibit this year, but we wanted to be present and it was really valuable to take in the whole exhibition. A team trip down to London was great fun, of course – and we gained a lot by attending LVS.

Recently, we have also been in visiting local colleges, with more dates lined up over the next few months. We really love to do this and help student nurses with career advice and with CV writing – it’s really important to have that help as you’re just starting out in your career.

We’ve also been out and about on client visits, including a recent trip to Paragon Referrals in Wakefield – a fantastic referral hospital which opened its doors earlier this year. This was a brilliant opportunity to take a look behind the scenes and learn more about how they operate. On top of that, they have a lovely, welcoming team and wonderful modern facilities.

Last month, Laura, our MD and specialist consultant for the South West, South Central and West Midlands, went down to visit a client based in Milton, Cambridge. She spent her Saturday working an eight hour shift – shadowing an RVN! It was invaluable for Laura to work this locum shift – a fantastic opportunity to go forwards from here with even more in-depth industry knowledge. Of course, we’re really grateful to Village Vet for giving Laura this opportunity.

As you might have seen on social media, we also have a new addition to our team in the office… little Annie the golden roan sable Cocker Spaniel has joined us  recently! She’s around ten weeks old now, and very excitable! So now Archie has a four-legged friend to hang out with. Check out our Instagram page for regular pupdates…

While we’ve been out and about over the past few weeks, we’ve also been working hard at our desks, with more and more jobs coming in and more and more placements being made up and down the country.

December is almost upon us – and we’re expecting this busy trend to continue. Have a great weekend!
