About

Trainees

Islanders Vets agrees to train novices.

Some trainees studied Animal Management or other trainees have no experience in the vet field but are keen to learn.

Islanders Vets regularly receives solicitations from young people who want to work with animals. They often tell us that they applied to many places but they don’t even get an answer.

Islanders Vets believes that everyone should be given an opportunity and we are very proud to be this company that gives young people that first opportunity to get their first experience and get their foot into the vet field.

These trainees may never have worked at a vet before, have never done such job before or sometimes they may have other issues. They may not be confident on the phone or may not know the answer to all the questions you may have now. This is a learning process that we all have to go through. Rest assure that they are doing their best. Remember that these youngsters could be your siblings, your kids, your cousins … so please be kind and patient with them.

Above all, these trainees are a true reflection of the type of business we are : an investor in people.
