Wonderful job
I worked at Goddards Hayes End for the past 3 years. Left recently as relocated to Hampshire. Thoroughly enjoyed my time working with an amazing team and lovely clients and their pets. I would highly recommend working for Goddards and will endeavour to find another veterinary practice in my location. Thank you for making my time there a happy one.

Supportive and friendly atmosphere *****
I have had a great time working for Goddard vet group. I have been in a small branch practice for almost 2 years and love it. I came to the company as a just qualified RVN and had lots of support from team members and management in advancing my skills. Plenty of opportunity to advance in your role whilst maintaining a great work life balance. Having come from a very stressful previous nursing job, it was nice to be able to leave work at work and know that you have the support of your colleagues and a very friendly management team should you need it. Great CPD allowance, rewards/benefits and good salaries. You are treated as an individual and not just another number! I would recommend to a friend any day!

I have just started working for Goddards and the support I have received has been incredible. I've never felt more instantly at home at a practice and I have never worked with such a strong team where everyone is valued. They have supported me massively in both my veterinary work and also personally, which makes all of the difference.

Incredibly friendly and supportive practice
Having recently started at Goddards, I have never received such a friendly welcome from a company. I have been blown away by how amazing the team is - from managers to kennel assistants, and how well they all work together and support each other. I have never been to a company where every single person I have met has been so welcoming and genuinely happy to help me with anything that I've needed. Being part of such a great team makes all the difference to a working day.

Supportive Management and Brilliant Team
My move to GVG was the best thing I could have done with my career. Coming from a small private practice with minimal management and zero progression, Goddard were able to offer me everything I was after - a competitive salary, a great working environment, career progression and a management team that are second to none. I have never felt more supported in my role as a nurse and I could not think of anywhere else I would rather work.
