Talking about the investment, Founder of The Vet Service, Ed Taylor said: “Our mission is to help the veterinary industry maintain sustainable, valued working environments and careers globally. The idea for our service came about when we realised that practices were finding it increasingly difficult to find suitable vets, which ultimately led to the creation of our specialist digital jobs platform.
“The people who are part of our business are the main driver in our success and we are delighted to be supported by Invest NI to expand our team with a further eight staff. We have also received critical advice and guidance from Invest NI on our road to securing key international business.
“Recently, we expanded our service and launched a new online vet webinar platform where vets can receive vital CPD courses from accredited speakers. Our new online service means that veterinary professionals can receive accredited professional development from anywhere in the world, with expert speakers covering a range of important topics in the industry. In the current pandemic with localised restrictions in place, this type of service is more important than ever.”
