Helen Super Agent Helen called me about a role in industry. I was at ease that I was dealing with another experienced professional , who gave me the impression that I was in good hands from the get go. As a general rule I do not need agency help to fill my diary, as I have been invovled in veterinary locuming since 2007. As my instinct told me, Helen found me locum work in industry and was brilliant on follow up when support was needed for the role. This is what separates the super agent form the good agent. Thanks Helen, you are a star Ian.

In my case, I am working abroad and she even checks if visa process has started and how things are going.

I would like to express my gratitude to VetPro Recruitment for all their support, hard work and outstanding service.

Trying to find the right job for a recent non UK graduate can be challenging.

When I first started looking for vacancies I came into contact with most of the recruitment agencies across the UK but VetPro were the most proactive ones.

They didn't just send me a competency form by email. They got in touch with me right away and after a friendly and in depth conversation he understood my experience levels and my goals. Since then my life became much easier.

Basically, they helped me by relieving the pressure and stress of the whole process by keeping in regular contact, arranging interviews , job trials and always providing feedback to both parties.

In every stage of the process they were really supportive and informative and ensured that I was happy and everything was done with my best interests in mind.

In conclusion, I would definitely recommend VetPro Recruitment and their services to any vet from the UK or abroad currently searching for a job.

Tender paws was very happy with your service, it was what we would have expected from VetPro. You were polite and efficient.

Nicola Fairweather Tender Paws

Working with VetPro Recruitment was an easy and enjoyable experience from start to finish. The whole team and were extremely friendly and knowledgeable. They maintained very regular contact with me to keep me informed of the latest vacancies and other developments. With their help and guidance I found a job with the right practice and have not looked back since. They handled all the negotiations and made my transition into the new job a smooth and easy one.

Having initially been reluctant to use a recruitment agency, I cannot recommend VetPro highly enough for their friendly and professional service and I would have no hesitation in using them again.

A happy Vet placed recently in a permanent position Candidate using VetPro

VetPro's hard work and support was very much appreciated in assisting me into finding a new career. They were very knowledgeable and it felt like all the hard work was done for me (which it was)!!

They were prompt and conscientious, always returning my calls and also when acting as a go between with me and my new employers.

They were encouraging and supportive when I was uncertain and helped the transition into my role a smooth operation.

Given the fact i had little experience in my new sector or job experience, i believe that my success was greatly down to VetPro that I was able to secure the position (and the salary I wanted!)

I would certainly use VetPro again if a suitable vacancy arose.

Pet Insurance company using VetPro for Claims Handlers

I have not used a recruitment agency before, but my recent experience with VetPro Recruitment has been nothing but positive.
I found them completely supportive, honest, approachable, and understanding, and I would whole - heartedly recommend them to anyone looking to find a new vet for their practice.
VetPro Recruitment have the communication skills, industry knowledge, and determination to act as an excellent mediation service between prospective employee and employer saving you valuable time. I believe they do have the ability to deliver.
I will not hesitate to use their services again.

Vet Practice using VetPro to recruit a new member of staff

I had recently had some time off work after having children and was now looking for a new job. Using a recruitment agency hadn't crossed my mind and I had certainly never considered that would be necessary with regards to finding veterinary jobs. However, I did have very specific work requirements (short commute time, flexible working hours, strong interest in internal medicine) and finding a practice that met all my criteria was not going to be easy. Then, during my own search for jobs, I stumbled across VetPro Recruitment. Despite my initial scepticism, and much to my surprise, the service they offered turned out to be fantastic. Not only were they well connected and able to provide up to date information regarding several suitable jobs, they also seemed to take care of everything else! They arranged interviews, mediated feedback between both parties and ultimately also helped out with regards to the discussion of terms and conditions. They basically took the stress out of the whole procedure by keeping in regular contact and always ensuring that I was happy with every stage of the recruitment process. In summary, they provided an exceptionally friendly and complete service and I would certainly recommend them to any other vets who are currently looking for work.

The service is just great, they had lots of positions for me, always taking under consideration everything I asked for and dealing with very good practices. Since the first time I knew they were going to find the position I wanted. I cannot thank Rebecca Goldsmith enough for her time and amazing customer service, and I am sure I will use these guys again

Marina Candidate using VetPro

I am really impressed with VetPro. Within a few days of signing up I had an interview and the very next week I was offered the job! I can't believe how quickly it all worked out and how painless the process was. Particular thanks go to Stuart who has been so helpful to me and was always available to talk through any questions or queries which I had. I'm really looking forward to starting this new chapter in my career and I would recommend VetPro to anyone in the veterinary industry.

Claire (London) Candidate using VetPro

Helen was simply amazing throughout all the recruitment process that led to my employment, her help has been of great value when I moved to UK to find my first Veterinary job. I am now in a fantastic role where I can see a fantastic career ahead of me. I have hardly ever met other recruiters as dedicated to the candidate's success as she is. Helen is not only driven by the business necessities but she is also emphatic and she genuinely cares about the candidate's satisfaction as well as their personal situation.
I highly recommend her!

Giulia Candidate using VetPro

As my vet student days were coming to an end, I began spending more and more time thinking about my first job. I had a very good idea of what I wanted but the next step was to find a compatible practice. I initially emailed Helen and she got back to me promptly. We had a 30 minute chat on the phone where I described exactly what I was looking for in my first job. Within hours I was sent contact details of amazing practices looking for new grads.

Helen was amazing in helping arrange interview times, contacting me before and after every interview and even suggesting ways of getting to practices. I was thoroughly impressed with the services provided by VetPro Recruitment.

I have now been in my first job for 6 weeks and it has been great. It is exactly what I wanted and hopefully I will be here for a very long time!"

Thanks again Helen!

Mark Candidate using VetPro

I was very lucky to deal with Helen and have her constant support.

After seeking more information about a job found online, Helen contacted me very quickly, to discuss my requirements. Within a few days she had come back to me with details of a job well suited for me, organised the interview, and the same day I was offered the job.
I can't commend Helen highly enough, she was very professional, friendly, efficient and supportive. Thank you for everything!

Victoria Candidate using VetPro

I was looking for my first work in UK with few different job agencies. VetPro Recruitment was definitely the best one. I had great support and outstanding service. I want to thank to my consultant Helen Foster for her hard work, support, updating me almost everyday and listening to exactly what I expected from my future dream job and the most important thing for finding a perfect place for me. I would definitely recommend VetPro Recruitment to everyone who is looking for a job, if you are looking for your dream job you'll find it with their help.

Anna Jankowiak Candidate using VetPro

I think my case was quite unusual. As a foreign vet it wasn't easy to get into the clinical duties here in the UK, but luckily I came across Helen at VetPro during my job search, a valid, understanding consultant and recruiter who has empathy with foreigners. Helen helped me throughout the whole process with a detailed and oriented approach tirelessly for the best outcome, to get the job of my life. I have to thank Helen for this big step forward in my career and for backing me in this hard choice and mostly for making it become reality. I will strongly recommend VetPro to my peers whenever I have the opportunity.

Davide Simone Candidate using VetPro

I want to thank VetPro recruitment so much, particularly to Helen Foster. As a foreign vet it wasn't easy to find a position here without any experience in the UK, but Helen did a great job and she gave me all the support I needed. I really appreciated that!

Davide Cappellotto Candidate using VetPro

Loving work! Everything is going really well. Thank you so much for helping me out when I first arrived.

I'm enjoying my time at top cat so far, they are a lovely team,

Caroline Hall Candidate using VetPro

Thank you very much for you help, you and your agency were really helpful for me, you were great !!! :)

Katarzyna Bartosiewicz Candidate using VetPro

Helen was my agency recruiter for the last few months and I could not be happier with her service. From the moment I contacted her, she made me feel confident and enthusiastic about what opportunities she could deliver. She was very personable and treated me like an individual. I was impressed with her vast knowledge about the vet industry and understood what it was that I wanted to do. She took all of my wants and needs into consideration and made her decision on my placement based on what I had told her. I would highly recommend Helen for anybody else looking for a job in my industry and I cannot thank her enough for finding me my first job after my graduation.

Sonia Tome Candidate using VetPro

Having never used a recruitment agency before, I wasn't sure what to expect when finding my first job. I'm exceptionally pleased with all the help I've received from VetPro recruitment. After a quick chat about what I was after, I received regular updates and advice from my recruiter. My favourite thing about VetPro was their attention to detail. They included how far each practice was from my parents home, a consideration very important for my first job. Working on my behalf in a matter of weeks they had found me multiple roles, and persevered to get me the best offer. They took all of the hard work and strain out of looking for a job. I have nothing but positive things to say about VetPro, and will always consider them for future job hunting.

Georgina Ferguson Candidate using VetPro

I was between jobs when I received an email from Helen Foster at VetPro Recruitment asking if I was doing ok and if I was looking for a job. It was my first time using a recruitment agency, so I had my concerns. Helen was very nice and very professional and was available even on weekends if I needed. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Helen and VetPro Recruitment for the kindness and guidance in the period of transition and obviously finding me a new job.

Oscar Toshner Candidate using VetPro

As a recent graduate looking for my first job in the veterinary profession, moreover abroad, I found Katie to be extremely helpful to have your help and the assistance during all the steps. It made the whole process less stressful and very smooth. 
Additional support such as calls and warm words before/after the interviews made my experience very pleasant.

Recently placed graduate Candidate using VetPro

It was such a delightful surprise getting your card in the mail, thank you so much! I really appreciated all your help in finding me interviews and the position at Ashby Road Vets, I couldn't have done it without you. It's been three weeks since I started and everyone is still as lovely and helpful as ever, and although I've still got a lot to learn I feel like I'm getting more comfortable in the job!

Rebecca Kent Candidate using VetPro

I have used VetPro Recruitment twice now and have found them to be approachable, honest and very dedicated. In fact, they have successfully found me staff members both times when the other agencies had not managed to do so. What I appreciate is the honesty and tact they use when mediating between the practice and candidates and try and remain faithful to both sides. 
I must also mention that I am amazed at the dedication. I have received emails from them over the weekend and after work hours - dedication! They will always be my first agency to ring if I needed new staff members.

Subo Gill Family Friends Vets

I was lucky enough to connect with the VetPro recruitment team without no previous recommendation while scrolling through the Internet in my search for a new job. I can say that there is distinguished difference between VetPro and the rest of the agencies in the field. I met great and professional support, literally every day from the team who were working including the weekends to make it possible for me to find a job as soon as possible. I would love to thank the team for being on-line, every single day and working so hard and believing even more than me that finding a good job is easy and pleasant if you are in the right place with the right person next to you. Thank you.

I have been working with one of the members of staff from VetPro recruitment over the past two weeks and have received an outstanding service in helping me to find my first graduate veterinary job. I was provided with excellent advice and support whilst attending interviews and given immediate replies or provide investigations into any queries that I had throughout the weeks. The friendly atmosphere created between us certainly helped to calm my nerves and properly prepare me for my interviews. Within a few days Helen was able to provide me with countless interview offers from companies that I was very excited to work for which met all of the requirements I was looking for in a first job! Very easy to work with and more than happy to go out of their way at all hours to help provide an excellent service, I highly recommend them.

David Cummings Candidate using VetPro

I would definitely recommend VetPro Recruitment to anyone looking for a job in the veterinary world. They have been wonderfully helpful all through this difficult period of interviews and hard decisions: always available, quick to answer, proposing plenty of different options, working to meet my requirements and mediate with potential employers. In the end, they managed to find the perfect job for me, and went so far in their kindness as to contact me again soon before I was about to begin working to wish me good luck. They even sent me a congratulations card to my place of work, for me to receive on my first day.
So definitely, if you’re looking for a job, don’t hesitate to ask VetPro Recruitment for help!

I can only recommend her and I look forward to collaborating with her again in the future

Giacomo Piergentili Candidate using VetPro

We would like to congratulate Vet Pro Recruitment for their excellent services. All of the consultants which were responsible to find us a veterinary position in UK were very organized. 
We would like to especially thank Ms Helen Foster, who had the difficult task to organize us and schedule our interviews in a very short period of time. With her help we had the opportunity to book a significant amount of interviews in only 10 days, all in different areas of the UK (both in the South and in the North). What was really important for us was to find two positions that would fit us both and with her patience and understanding we were able to accomplish just that. 
Concluding, it was our pleasure to cooperate with your recruitment services and your really hard working consultants. Vet Pro recruitment will be our first choice in our future job decisions. Thank you one more time! Continue your great job!
