Recruitment Services

A veterinary recruitment process focused on practice success

Using an agency, particularly a veterinary sector specialist, to manage your recruitment significantly increases the chance of securing the candidate you are looking for and retaining them in the future.

Rather than sing our own praises, we asked some of our veterinary clients to outline their reasons for using Elite Veterinary Staffing Solutions.

Based on their experience the responses included;

  • invaluable market advice and intelligence
  • increased advertising reach and visibility access to a greater depth of relevant candidates
  • time saved on sourcing and/or headhunting appropriate candidates
  • the filtering and vetting of shortlist and interviewees
  • managing the process from filtering and arranging interviews right through to the offer and any negotiation
  • communicating and championing practice values and vision

…we think this provides a fairly compelling argument for entrusting Elite Veterinary Staffing Solutions with your next people project.

The alternative is to conduct the recruitment process yourself, but this can be a false economy in so many ways. The time and effort alone of filtering and vetting can be immense, that is assuming your job posting efforts secured the required quantity and quality of potential candidates. If not, you probably need to re-advertise. All the while practice life is compromised as you continue to soldier on with limited staff or expertise. Worst case scenario, you finally make an appointment that isn’t quite what you wanted but you need to fill the role – 6 months on, it isn’t working out and you have a tricky HR situation on the horizon. You then have to start the whole process again. No wonder recruitment can often feel like such a chore. But it doesn’t have to.
