At Vets Now we reward hard work and offer career progression opportunities to staff at all levels.

We are committed to investing in the next generation of veterinary professionals and actively support and encourage anyone wishing to study for a certificate in emergency and critical care (ECC).

As part of this, vets who embark on the CertAVP(ECC) or PGCert(ECC) are allocated 300 hours of CPD study time, as well as an additional 45 hours to prepare for their final exams. Those who go on to gain certification are also rewarded with £2,500.

One of our vets, Jacqui Seymour, who is based at Vets Now in Alfreton and has recently been appointed president of NEVA (North of England Veterinary Association), has already completed the CertAVP(ECC) and has also gone on to gain Advanced Practioner status.

Here she tells our content marketing manager Iain Harrison about her journey to CertAVP(ECC) certification and how Vets Now has helped take her career to the next level.
