Careers With Animals Day to show the diversity of options open to veterinary nurses


For veterinary nurses looking to learn more about their career options, there’s no better place to start than The College of Animal Welfare’s (CAW) annual Careers With Animals Day!

Running at the College’s education and training centre in Tingley on Saturday 13 October, veterinary nurses will be able to chat to members of the CAW team about the opportunities open to them in industry – from veterinary team management and research, to teaching and rehabilitation.

A great line up of local and national exhibitors will be on hand to help vet nurses gain an insight into their respective specialisms, and work out whether it might be for them.

Exhibitors include Torrington Orthopaedics, Calder Vets, The Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Animal Therapy (ACPAT), Paragon Veterinary Referrals, Abbey House Veterinary Hospital, Paddlin Paws, Cloud 9 Veterinary Physiotherapy – and many more.

As well as chatting to exhibitors, visitors can also listen to a jam-packed timetable of careers talks being held throughout the day on careers ranging from conservation work to hydrotherapy. What’s more – entry is completely free of charge!

Frank Taylor, Vice Principal Veterinary Studies at The College of Animal Welfare, said: “The career prospects for registered veterinary nurses are excellent. Whilst many choose to remain in first opinion veterinary practice after qualifying, there are just as many opportunities for progression in referral centres and large veterinary hospitals, as well as outside of practice. Careers With Animals Day is a fantastic opportunity to find out more about your options from industry professionals.”

Whether you’re a newly qualified veterinary nurse working out what your next move is going to be, an experienced veterinary nurse looking to take your career to the next level, or currently unemployed and looking to get back into the industry – everyone is welcome. The event will be held at The College of Animal Welfare in Tingley (WF3 1DR) on Saturday 13 October. Doors are open from 10am until 3pm and entry is completely free of charge.
