Goddard Veterinary Group was started in 1952 by Arthur Goddard and now consists of 44 branches, 3 hospitals, and our own nursing college. We have a great reputation for looking after our people; over 20% of our team have been with us 10 years or more and we’re proud of our many 5-star employee reviews on Indeed.  In 2022 we are celebrating our 70th anniversary.

We value all our colleagues and our forward-looking approach means we have introduced a Colleague Forum to listen to our peers’ views, as well as monthly Town Hall meetings, communicating real time updates, taking polls with live Q&A’s to ensure we’re making the right, collaborative decisions for our people. All our senior managers are Mental Health First Aid trained and we offer Wellness plans for new starters. We are a forward-thinking practice and have developed our own successful contact centre to help ease reception pressure in our busy branches. We have a schedule of refurbishments planned and are continually reviewing equipment needs at our practices. As an A1 Home Office approved sponsor, we are sometimes able to help non-UK veterinary surgeons and nurses obtain a working visa.
