Vets Now announce £100k investment in professional development
Staff at Vets Now, Europe’s leading emergency and critical care provider, are to benefit from a £100,000 investment in CPD allowances.
Clinic support teams, including ACAs and receptionists, will receive 10 CPD hours a year while the allowance for senior nurses will rise to up to £2200.
Meanwhile, vets and vet nurses can now spend 10% of their CPD allowance on educational books and subscriptions.
Mark Ross, CEO of Vets Now, said: “Releasing potential is one of the fundamental values upon which Vets Now was founded and we’re always looking at innovative ways of reinvesting back into our business and our people”
“There are more plans in the pipeline and there will be a particular focus on wellbeing, CPD and career progression.”
Vets Now has announced a raft of benefits package improvements in recent years.
In April, it granted six months’ fully paid leave for expectant mothers and four weeks’ paid leave for new fathers.
Vets Now also became a real living wage employer, improved its sick pay policy, reduced working hours for clinical teams, and introduced paid voluntary leave for everyone within the company.
