Veterinary & Pet Job Opportunities
Your dream job and next career step working with animals is only a few clicks away. Find a career working with animals in a variety of fields from Vet Jobs to Vet Nurses Jobs, Vet Practice Manager Jobs and more; and in Pet Care there are opportunities in Pet Retail Management and Customer Service as well as for Groomers, Trainers, and Territory Sales roles.
And now for this weeks’ blog…
With the generally recognised shortage of Vets and Vet Nurses, particularly in regional areas, attracting, retaining and developing your team has never been more important. Whilst focussing on retention and development is essential, when it comes time to recruit your next team member, as an Owner, Partner or Practice Manager, today you have to sell yourself and your practice.
Remember, it is called a Job AD…and like all good ads, it is there to entice people to action, not do the entire sales job. All you really want to happen is for you to receive plenty of resumes; having too many to choose from is a much better problem than having one…or none.
An effective job ad is not just a job description. It is a carefully crafted message with the aim of attracting the best qualified candidates for your job.
We have worked our way through a wide range of Job Ads, through our own site as well as others, identifying what works, and what does not work, when it comes to writing a Job Ad that works.
Now, here are some well-researched Do’s and Don’t’s…
