Ref: 19864

Hours: Full-time

Contracted Hours: 39

Contract Type: Fixed Term

Location: Chester House, Epsom Ave, Handforth, Cheadle, Greater Manchester, SK9 3DF


This is a hybrid role, working two days per week out of our Handforth (Cheshire) Support Office (SK9 3RN)

Role overview:

Your role will be to work towards the group strategy plan and ensure that there is a strong candidate pipeline in place to support the growth of our veterinary business with new practice openings and practice sales. This role is focused on providing an excellent candidate journey and supporting them through the discovery stage of being a practice owner.

You will be part of a dedicated and supportive team who have a wealth of experience and skills. This role will allow a recruiter to develop key relationships with candidates and internal stakeholders, whilst developing new skills and having the autonomy to drive success and results.

This role will allow you the opportunity to also attend veterinary congresses and build your personal brand in the profession. If you are a driven and passionate recruiter who loves animals, then this is the role for you!

Key accountabilities

· Working with key stakeholders to ascertain requirements and create a full briefing to put out to market, and to work through a sales campaign depending on specific requirements

· Creating sales prospectus’s and working with our marketing team on the creative for adverts and social media campaigns

· Carrying out head hunting activity within targeted areas

· Recruiting within a skills shortage market, so being innovative on recruitment searches and marketing opportunities and activity to generate interest

· Networking with veterinary professionals at congresses and through social media groups

· Continual development of our pipeline and talent pools – communication is key

· Taking potential partners through our candidate journey process which includes hosting a ‘Discovery Day’ for them – this is a day where they get to meet key colleagues from other department and find out more about being a partner

· Ensuring all stakeholders are managed and communicated to with regards to their vacancy / sale

· Being able to professionally communicate to a potential partner, the business model, the commercials and the investment needed

· Working in close partnership with your team to complete the discovery stage and sales journey for a potential partner

· Collaboration with other key departments to support your candidates journey


This role would suit someone with previous recruitment experience, who has been used to working in a fast paced and demanding environment. Experience of having recruited in a skills shortage market would be ideal, but we would need a candidate who has previous experience of head hunting and using social media to engage and network with industry professionals.


The role is demanding and therefore you will need to be able to manage your time effectively, as we empower our team colleagues to drive the success of their business area. You will need to be an effective and confident communicator, who can tailor your approach to different candidates and conversations, and having the ability to build strong and trusting relationships is key to this role

This role is a blend of office and home working, and will require some out of hours work when speaking with potential partners, so we always ensure you take the time back for you when needed.
