How to Hire for Vets – Webinar Series; Watch the first one for free here



Dave Nicol of North Ryde

Dr Dave Nicol of the North Ryde Veterinary Hospital and Nancy Slessenger have designed this webinar specifically for you if you want to recruit people into a veterinary practice.


In this first webinar you will get an overview of the process and we will be share some of our experiences.


Dave Nicol has turned round the North Ryde Veterinary Hospital, from a loss-making practice to a profitable practice in just 9 months. It now makes 19% profit. A major part of this turn around was the recruitment process.

See this  David Nicol short video where Dave explains just how much difference  recruitment has made to his business.


Nancy Slessenger, who started Vinehouse, is the recruitment expert who has worked with Dave on these recruitments to develop this process especially for veterinary practices.


In this webinar series designed specially for you, we share some of our secrets.

Getting the right person is vital for the success of your practice. There is no recruitment process at all that can guarantee you 100% you have the right person, but this process will increase the odds very much in your favour. It may look like a lot of work. However, if you follow the steps you will get great results quickly, for the least effort and a low cost. In fact this process will save you the horrendous cost of getting the wrong people.

 This first webinar is free to watch (just click the link above) and is just one hour. It gives you an overview of the process that Dave has used to successfully recruit five people into his practice, including a new Vet, a Receptionist and Vet Nurses and is packed full of real examples.

 It is part of a whole series of webinars that give you the tools you need to take the pain and trouble out of recruitment forever.
