CVS ‘WLTM’ Potential Graduates, Recruits and Practice Owners at the 2014 London Vet Show

A £300 voucher with short break specialist Superbreak is up for grabs on the CVS stand E30 at the London Vet Show this year.  Visitors just need to answer two simple questions to be in with a chance of winning it. 

Staff from the UK’s largest and fastest growing corporate veterinary group will also be on hand to talk about the wide range of development programmes it offers, including its fast-growing, two-year New Graduate Training Programme.  48 first year graduates embarked on the scheme in November 2013 with more than 60 starting in November 2014. 

The company is also hoping to meet potential recruits and practice owners who are interested in exploring a future within CVS. 

CVS Veterinary Director Tim Davies explained:  “Our New Graduate Programme supports new graduates in all aspects of their first veterinary role.   We offer extensive clinical CPD, combined with mentor support and the opportunity to work alongside CVS experts in our referral centres, laboratories and emergency clinics.  We’re receiving excellent feedback from graduates already on the scheme and will soon be recruiting for our 2015 intake.

“We’re looking forward to meeting graduates, veterinary colleagues and practice owners and discussing their career aspirations and how CVS might be able to help.”

Meanwhile, MiVetClub, CVS’ buying group, is unveiling the latest addition to its exclusive MiPet own- brand product range.  MiPet Waiting Room Retail is a comprehensive range of high quality pet toys and accessories to help practices retain profitability and increase food fall.  Visitors to the MiVetClub stand can see a fully merchandised stand and enter a competition to win a Kindle Fire.

Sara Armitage, Director of MiVetClub, said:  “MiVetClub aims to offer a high standard of support to independent practices by harnessing the knowledge, experience and processes, proven across more than 260 practices within the CVS family.  Our buying group has gone from strength to strength since its launch just over a year ago and, following the positive response to its first products, we’re delighted to be launching the new additions complete with their eye-catching orange livery at the London Vet Show.”

CVS UK Ltd is the largest and fastest-growing mixed practice corporate veterinary group in the UK.  Founded in 1999 and run, principally by vets, it employs more than 3,000 staff at its practices and surgeries across the UK and in its related veterinary businesses, including an online pharmacy, three pet crematoriums and five veterinary laboratories.

Key to its success is CVS’ ability to attract ambitious veterinary staff and to invest in their clinical skills, knowledge and in research to drive the profession forward.  It also provides the business support to ensure its diverse range of small animal, large animal and equine practices achieve their full potential.   CVS’ guiding principles include a commitment to excellence in all aspects of its work and a focus on building long-term relationships with its customers and suppliers.  The company works in close partnership with the wider veterinary profession and industry colleagues.
