What did you do before working at E&J?
I am a recent veterinary graduate of UCD Vet School in Dublin, I finished my clinical rotations in April, successfully completed my final exams in May and graduated (virtually unfortunately) on the 15h of June.
What attracted you to a career in veterinary public health?
Throughout our clinical years of university, we had to complete 24 weeks of placements in a variety of veterinary settings such as equine practice, small animal, mixed animal and in a meat factory. From these placements and our learning in university it was VPH where I found myself developing the greatest interest. From these experiences I decided that I would like to build a career in VPH and after a bit of research Eville and Jones appeared to be a great place to begin this career and follow these interests that I developed at UCD.
How would you like to see your career progress and what are your aspirations?
I am looking forward to working in Wales over the coming months firstly as an MHI, then OV when I have completed the training in September. After gaining sufficient experience here I would hope to move onto Export OV work and hopefully even greater opportunities after this.
What would you say to anyone considering a career in veterinary public health?
There appears to be a great amount of opportunity and work available to anyone interested in this area of Veterinary and plenty of variety once you begin your career, along with a better amount of structure to your working day and week.
How has the E&J induction process been so far?
Great, the training team are very friendly and helpful, and there has been plenty of laughs along the way.
