For working in the UK, you will need a few new requirements due to Brexit.
We partner with Vetted Recruitment
Debbie and Laura will help you find a lovely practice for you to work in and will give you support for your relocation.
Learn more about the requirements for working in the UK below.
You are required to have IELTS level 7.
If your University is not EAEVE-accredited at the time of your graduation, you will need to sit the RCVS Statutory Examination. We have free courses for both.
You must complete all previous steps in order to receive a job offer from a practice that is an approved sponsor, which will then allow you to apply for the visa. Most practices fully pay for this cost.
The opportunity of working in Portugal is tricky for those who are not living there already, but it may be a good option for those from the EU or from Brazil.
We partner with Vetersalud
Vetersalud is an Iberian group with clinics in several locations, including some locations where knowledge of a second and third language may be beneficial.
Working in Portugal may be a slightly bureaucratic process to get your started with.
While most people speak English, clients don't want to speak English when they are distressed about their pets. This is why you have to have a conversational level of Portuguese to work in Portugal in a client-facing role.
This process can be very bureaucratic and take some time. There is a recognition process of veterinary degrees from outside of the EU that can take several months (6 or more) and then usually requests you to take some classes in order to obtain full recognition.
Although there is a lack of veterinary professionals, the working conditions and salaries are still some of the lowest of all the countries we work with, with the upside being that Portugal is a lovely country to live in.
Since Spanish is a language spoken and taught in many countries, this is a place where EU vets and vets from South America can relocate to.
We partner with Vetersalud
Vetersalud is an Iberian group of clinics that has roles in all areas of Spain, including areas typically visited by tourists where knowing several languages is a benefit.
Although in some jobs you may be fine with English and another language, you will eventually need to speak Spanish at a conversational level to make a career here.
While European degrees are recognised, the process may still be a bit bureaucratic due to the regional nature of the registers, unlike in other countries where there is only one national veterinary register.
As a group, Vetersalud provides you with support for your career change and your own veterinary training and formation program to develop your skills.
