Veterinary Testimonials

Oliver Whyte, on behalf of Prospect Health, was really helpful and I received an amazing service. Always there to give a piece of advice, very professional and quick when his help was needed. I couldn’t be more grateful and I would definitely recommend Oliver and Prospect Health if you’re looking for the next step in your career.

Chris made finding a job whilst I relocated, a stress-free experience. Prior to my move, he ensured that he fully understood the role that I was looking for and the qualities that were important to me in a job. After finding the perfect role, Chris continued to provide support prior to the interview and after I was offered the job, he worked hard to ensure that I received a package that I was happy with. Chris was friendly, helpful and professional, throughout the entire process. I would not hesitate to use Prospect Health again in the future or to highly recommend them to others.

Jenny Perry

I met Chris through the sponsorship of my Graduation Ball in 2017 at Liverpool university. I unfortunately found myself in the wrong position and was fortunate enough that Chris was able to find me a position that is far better suited to me and my needs as a new graduate vet. Chris was very attentive throughout the recruitment process and always kept me up to date with any developments from my new employer. From finding a new position, to handing in my resignation, Chris has been helpful and professional all the way through. I would definitely recommend Prospect Health to other new graduates!

Lucy Merritt


Finding a new job that suited my needs and career plans couldn't have been easier. Rebecca was able to decipher which positions would best suit my requirements, put me in touch directly with the practice and help me along every step of the way. She remained in constant contact and liaised between myself and the practice to assist in progressing towards starting my new position. Help was readily available to aid in the move; from talking to prospective employers, leaving my current position, and any queries within my new role. I would highly recommend anyone looking for a new job in their Veterinary career to speak with Rebecca.'

Prospect Health made finding a job hassle free. Rebecca was efficient, thorough and really took on board my requirements. She was always prompt to contact me with offers and within days she had numerous suitable positions lined up. She managed to find me a job which was tailored to my needs. I am delighted with my new job and really satisfied with the overall service. I would highly recommend Prospect Health to anyone.

Aileen Griffin


I discovered a job advert from Prospect Health that I liked the look of and in less than a day Chris was in touch to tell me all about it and see whether my personality and skill set matched that of the practice.
Less than 1 week later I had an interview and I am now working in the practice in my first job as a qualified vet.
I can't recommend Chris enough. He made the whole process stress-free, being a friendly yet professional person to turn to when I had any questions or queries.
The job description was exactly as described and I think he's done a perfect job of finding me a suitable role.
I absolutely love the new job and fit in great with the team already, something which might have been very different had it not have been for the way that Prospect Health work.
Thanks for making job hunting for my first job an enjoyable and exciting experience.
It's been a pleasure working with you and I hope others are just as lucky to find roles well suited to them because of the work that you do!

Kirsty Holt


Lauren - thank you very much for all that you have done on your end. You professionalism and genuine kindness have made this initial part of my transition very straight forward. Moreover, you took the time to listen to the type of clinic and work that i was after and feel very well matched to a clinic I’m really excited to become a part of. Your level of service was top notch, so well done and thank you!

Matt Buchanan-Pascall


I first contacted Prospect Health when I received an e-mail from the company concerning a role that felt very close to what I was looking for in that period of my career. I have collaborated with other agencies before and I was more or less satisfied with them. But usually they were dealing exclusively with vet surgeon’s positions, so I must admit I was a little reticent at the beginning about whether they would be able to find me my dream job. I was positively impressed with how quick and organised they were from their first phone call! 

By the end of the first day they had my likes, dislikes, level of experience, ideal job and desired search area on their computers. And the next day we had 8 roles that fitted my profile! I got interviews for 6, trial days for 3 and 2 offers in ten days! For me that was a truly amazing result.

My Consultant through this was Chris Hastings. Always there to help me with anything I needed, advice me before my interviews, gave me feedback from the employers and kept me away from roles that did not match my criteria. Plus he negotiated my salary for me and I ended up with a very good deal. All candidates know that this is one of the most uncomfortable things to do when you finally come down to it!
I really can’t think of anything I could suggest to helping them improve their service! Professionalism, ethics and empathy are the characteristics that make me recommend them to anyone.

Maria Charalampopoulou


I had the pleasure of dealing with Chris Hastings back in January. My first impression of Chris was friendly, professional and extremely likeable. I appreciated how thorough Prospect was in terms of getting to know me, my background and what exactly I was looking for in my next position which I thought was paramount in matching what the client and the potential candidate were both looking for.
I appreciated the regular updates Chris provided me and felt like I was a priority. Although a position did not come to fruition, I could not have had a better experience with Prospect all made the more pleasurable by Chris. I would highly recommend him and Prospects in the future.

Stephanie Hu


It has been a pleasure dealing with Chris Hastings at Prospect Health. The company has strived to understand my career ambitions and needs as a working mother, and has placed me in a very suitable job.

Chris has always been available by phone, text and email throughout the process, and has been professional and cheerful at all times. Having the support of

Chris has made the transition between jobs so much easier, and I would highly recommend the service Prospect has to offer.

Hollybank Veterinary Centre Ltd

I have worked with Chris now for a few years and he has recently placed a candidate with us.  I have always found him to be professional and knowledgeable as well as very helpful and always cheerful!  He goes the extra mile and is always contactable, even outside normal working hours.  I really do feel Chris understands our practice and what we are looking for in a candidate.  We wouldn't hesitate to use Chris and Prospect Health in the future.

We have used Prospect Health Recruitment several times for both our locum and permanent vet and nurse vacancies. Gemma has always been proactive and efficient in finding suitable candidates and always followed up to ensure placements were satisfactory. She is always easy to contact and answers any queries very quickly. She is a pleasure to work with and we would recommend her and her agency to anyone looking for the services of a vet recruitment agency.
Nola Bethell


Sandy Hills Veterinary Practice

We have successfully used Prospect Health to recruit vets on two different occasions. Previously we had used the traditional route of adverts in the veterinary press followed by selection and interview, but we have found using a recruitment agency far more efficient in terms of overall timescale and in time spent on the recruitment process. Our contact Rebecca, was very attentive throughout the process and in follow up after the post was filled. We would certainly make Prospect Health our preferred recruitment route should the need arise again.

Robert Norquay MRCVS


Wigan Vets4Pets Ltd

I recently employed a new assistant vet through Prospect Health after failing to recruit through advertisements in the veterinary press and having had the position available for 3-4 months with little interest. Chris was very approachable and helpful from the start and once a suitable candidate was identified the interview and negotiation process went very quickly and smoothly. I was contacted regularly with updates without feeling pressured and since the successful appointment there has been follow-up to ensure we are happy with our new team member. I will continue to use Prospect Health for recruitment in the future and would recommend them to others.

Mahala Welbourn BVSc MRCVS JVP


Ribble Vets, Lancashire

In Spring 2016 we were in the unfortunate position of requiring 3 new small animal vets for our team.  Despite advertising in 2 leading Veterinary magazines and on-line we struggled to get good quality applicants.  I responded to an e-mail from Prospect Health and was pleasantly surprised by their efficiency.  I spoke to the same team member each time (Chris Hastings) and he was very approachable and accommodating.  Chris found me 3 excellent applicants, liaised with me and them regarding interview times and spoke to us all immediately after each interview.  I am delighted to say we employed all 3 (100% success!) and could not be happier with our new employees.  Prospect Health continue to support both the practice and the employee in the early months following employment which is an invaluable service. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone else in the veterinary sector and would definitely approach them for candidates in the future.

I would like to express my sincere thanks to Chris at Prospect Health for guiding me through the recruitment process. This is the first time I have ever used and agency and although I registered my vacancy with many others Prospect Health was the only agency to really understand what I was looking for.
Chris has been professional and friendly from day one and made me feel that nothing was too much trouble.  Above all what made the process so smooth was the level of contact from Chris; he was always easy to get hold of and kept me constantly updated.

I would not hesitate to recommend his recruitment services to others in the industry.

Chris has recently supported us with the recruitment of an RVN for our Oakwood Referral Practice.  Chris handled the process and communication very efficiently from receiving the initial CV through to arranging interviews and feedback. The candidate, Sarah, was excellent, she stood out from other candidates we interviewed and was thoroughly prepared for her interview.  I will certainly be using Prospect Health to support our recruitment in the future.

Kind regards

Calder Vets

I have worked with Chris Hastings from Prospect Health for some time now and have always found him to be professional, a pleasure to work with and more importantly able to deliver in terms of assisting Calder Vets with their recruitment of new staff.

Thanks Chris for making the process of recruiting night vets so easy.

Tracy Hemingway, Staff Manager


Eastfield Veterinary Clinic

I can highly recommend the service we have received from Prospect Health. Chris Hastings, the recruitment consultant we worked with, was very professional and helpful and our vacancy was filled by an excellent candidate within two weeks. The whole process went very smoothly and we would certainly use his services again

Helen Jeffreson


Rutland House Vets

Chris has been invaluable in the recruitment process-he was able to manage our expectations with the appropriate candidates and this saves us a huge amount of time sifting through CV’s.

Chris kept in regular contact via phone & email-always keeping me in the loop-thanks for your help!

Janie Clare


Cherry Tree Vets

I got in touch with Prospect Health several months before the planned vacancy fell due. They were my first port of call having previously advertised jobs and having had a very poor response. Jordan and the team were fantastic- very helpful, prompt, enthusiastic and only sent me really promising candidates. They spent a great deal of time finding out about our practice and personalising applications so that they saved me a huge amount of time and effort searching through CVs and interviewing inappropriate candidates.

The very first person we interviewed was a perfect fit for the job and we have now employed her! I would highly recommend Prospect Health for their speed and quality of customer care and service. Very pleased and I will absolutely use them again!

Clare Hamilton


Abbey Vet Group

The consultant at Prospect health got in touch with me and started actively working on our vacancy on the 23rd October 2013. By the 30th October she had sent me over an excellent candidate with over 13 years of experience and by 31st we had received another highly experienced candidate who we then took on as a permanent vet in December and is the perfect fit for our practice.

Prospect Health went into great detail about our opportunity, the practice and more importantly the culture fit of the business to ensure the candidates sent over to us were 100% right for our business. I would be delighted to recommend Prospect Health to other Veterinary Practices looking for the right staff for their practice.

Linda Hoskins


Terrington Veterinary Centre

Prospect Health contacted me in July 2013 with regards to their service. Lincolnshire and Norfolk can be notoriously difficult counties to find high calibre qualified Veterinary Staff and at the time I was in the market for 2 qualified Veterinary Nurses for the newly opening practice at Sutterton near Boston.

I decided to give Prospect Health a go and found that they went into great detail about my opportunity, our practice and more importantly the culture fit of the business. In a relatively short space of time I was sent 3 candidates for interview of which 2 of them I went on to hire; they have settled in well with the business. I would be delighted to recommend Prospect Health to other Veterinary Practices looking for the right staff for their practice.

Mr David Feldmer


Vets4Pets Peterborough

I approached Prospect health to find a high quality vet due to lack of response from traditional adverts and agencies. I had received details from prospect Health and decided to call them to discuss my requirements. I was very pleased with the approach that would be taken and found it easy to explain what I was looking for.

One month later a good candidate was presented and upon interview the job was offered and accepted. The costs are significant at 15% of the salary but this is a small sum if the right candidate is found.  I would use Prospect Health again

Cees Bennett

Broad Lane Vets Ltd

Chris contacted me proactively. Whilst we do not usually go through agencies, I was persuaded by him to take a look at a candidate he had in mind. The candidate appeared on paper well-matched for the role we had available. Chris passed on further information to us promptly, and we were able to arrange an interview at a mutually convenient time within our limited timeframe.

Following the interview, we have offered this candidate a position with the practice, because we feel they will be a very good fit for the team. We are grateful to Chris for his persistence, or we might still be looking!

Ellie Pittaway


Arncliffe Veterinary Centre Ltd

Our practice has had a much higher than usual turnover of Vets this year (a retirement and emigration to Australia & USA). The last three veterinary surgeons we have recruited have all come through Prospect Health. This is despite our having offered the positions through other agencies and direct advertising in the usual journals ourselves.

We are very happy with all of our recruits and they are happy with us - round pegs in round holes!

We are not sure why the best applicants have all come through Prospect Health, other than that the staff there are very thorough and seem to spend large amounts of time talking to their clients, both ourselves as the employer and the veterinary surgeons looking for new positions, and seem to be very good at selecting the right candidate for the right position. This is I suspect an art rather than a science, but one that requires time and effort to perfect.

In particular Lauren Bingham has been very impressive, always pleasant and efficient and going the extra mile. I would rather like to poach her to run our practice, but suspect we cannot afford her. Failing that I would happily adopt her as another daughter, I could do with a positive, cheerful, efficient one!
