Working with Animed

We are a large organisation and employ over 50 people at various levels:

  • Veterinary surgeons
  • Nurses
  • Receptionists and office staff
  • Veterinary students
  • Work experience school students

Positions as veterinary surgeons and veterinary nurses are advertised in the specialist press as they become available.

Veterinary students

We have specific arrangements for veterinary students from university to see practice both at the Small Animal Hospital and in our Equine Unit. We request that you submit a request by e-mail giving full details of the dates that you are seeking. At any time we can take one student for small animal work and one for equine work.

Please note: We prefer to receive requests for work experience by e-mail.

The website is updated occasionally to supply information regarding availability of places.

A Guide for Work Experience Students

As you can imagine we are inundated with requests for work experience here at the hospital. We are an approved training facility for veterinary nurses and we do offer places both for work experience pupils in years 10 and 11 of secondary education, placements for sixth formers preparing their UCAS applications and short term placements for students from Sparsholt College, and other surrounding colleges, studying Animal Care and Veterinary Nursing.

Early application is crucial – we are often booked up for at least a year ahead, especially with Year 10 students.

We can only accommodate one student at a time due to the high volume of requests for placements.

Students are placed here at the main hospital in Shedfield to see small animal practice only, as we are not insured for students to see equine practice. We do not take any students in our outside branch surgeries.

In order to apply please download and print the document below. Once you have completed the application you can post it to us here at the main hospital.

Animed Veterinary Hospital. Botley Road, Shedfield, Southampton Hants. SO32 2JH.

Please mark the envelope 'Work Experience Application'.

or e-mail it to mailto:info@animedvets.co.uk.

If you do not hear from us within a month then please assume that your application has been unsuccessful. You can however re-apply with new dates using the same process.

If we cannot offer a placement to suit we wish you every success finding an opportunity elsewhere.
