Supportive employer
I enjoyed working for Goddards for 6 years and am sad to have to leave due to relocation. I liked working with the supportive team, lovely clients, and interesting and varied case load. Management were accommodating to my flexible working request. Good back up to branches from 24-hour hospital so I never felt isolated knowing that friendly help and advice was only a phone-call or email away. Excellent CPD and benefits package.
Former Employee - Nov 2020

Great company to work for
I have worked for the company for 5 years and they are great for supporting career progression. The standards of practice are very high and the caseload is great.
Current Employee - Mar 2020

Supportive team, great work/life balance
I have been working at Goddard Veterinary Group full-time for more than a year. Pros: There is a great supportive nature throughout the company, allowing us to grow and achieve things professionally and personally. Cons: Wish I had joined them sooner!
Current Employee - Nov 2020

Fantastic Company to work for
Friendly, supportive, flexible, Goddards have always been there for me to celebrate the good times (qualifying as a Veterinary Nurse which they put me through my training for) and supporting/listening to me through the difficult times (whether personal or work related). Extensive, up to date equipment to provide gold standard care for all animals and a very well put together team of Vets, Nurses and VCA's to care for the animals. Everyone works as a team, everyone has a voice and can help make changes/improvements if required. I have never felt so at home whilst at work. I have not closed the door to Goddards, for now, I need to change jobs for my own reasons, I hope to be back to Goddards one day. Fair pay, flexible hours (always consider individuals needs) and everyone treated as an equal. Good holiday, great benefits scheme, provide training and good CPD allowance.
Former Employee - Dec 2020

Fantastic supportive practice
I worked at Goddard Veterinary Group full-time for more than a year Pros: Whilst I have worked for many of the groups/independent practices in and around Essex/London, I have never worked with a practice of such high standard. Goddard pride themselves in 5 star care and I can say that every patient that was cared for whilst I was working with them got that care. The standards and protocols are great, each branch works between themselves, but still lives up to the high standard. The practices are very busy and have a varied caseload. The vets that I worked with were super supportive - they listen and value your opinion. Everyone I met was welcoming and lovely. I hope to return soon (I added a human baby to my fur baby gang.) Keep up the good work guys! Cons: Non that I can think of.
