The Veterinary field can be one of the most rewarding forms of employment for animal lovers. Covering a wide range of skills, the role of Veterinary Surgeon (Vet) encompasses both Small and Large Animal practice as well as more specific areas such as Equine Medicine.
People wishing to become a Veterinary Surgeon need to study for a degree approved by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS). Courses last either five or six years, but should lead to employment with a private practice and a starting salary of £30,000. Experienced Vets can expect to earn around £45,000 a year, with senior staff in large practices often paid in excess of £60,000.
Candidates who want to find employment in the Veterinary field and have a degree in Psychology, Zoology or Biology can train to become a Certified Clinical Animal Behaviourist. Most such specialists are self-employed and deal directly with pet owners, but companies that make animal nutrition products also employ them in research roles.
Many jobs in the Veterinary sector are filled via word of mouth and adverts in the trade press, but there are a number of specialist recruitment agencies. They fill permanent positions, but also supply Veterinary Locums to cover for Surgeons who are off sick, on holiday or on maternity leave.
