It’s all about quality of service..
We are passionate about working with charities and have worked with most of the large charities since we set up our agency in 2006. You can expect a fast paced working environment which can be stressful at times, but we often get feedback from vets and nurses saying that they really enjoy the caseload from working in the charity hospitals and we recommend that everyone should work for one at least once in their career! We supply primarily locum staff to the main three charities we work with, but do also have regular permanent positions coming in.
Over the years it has been our great pleasure to have supported multiple charities. Through supplying jobs and other schemes, we are able to give back to the community and help the areas which need it most. This is something we are passionate about, and will continue to do so in the years going forward.
Here are just a few of the charities we have supported:
We also support the donkey sanctuary and are part of their adoption scheme. For the last few years we have adopted Teddy and this year we have now adopted Moses. He is retired now at the sanctuary in Sidmouth and is a easy going gentle donkey. He is very social and his best friend is Oscar as you can see from the photo he is a lovely looking chap.
We have been the official supplier to the PDSA for Veterinary staff since 2014, and again supply staff to over 50 hospitals.
You can expect to be working in a very busy environment, with a high volume of animals requiring treatment at all times.
The People's Dispensary for Sick Animals (PDSA) was founded in 1917 by Maria Dickin to provide care for sick and injured animals
of the poor.
It is the UK's leading veterinary charity, carrying out more than one million free veterinary consultations a year.
TOLFA also provides free or heavily subsidised veterinary care to the working animals of the rural poor. They run daily goat clinics at their in-house dispensary as well as mobile services to the people and their animals of more remote, out-lying villages. The mobile clinic began in July 2015 and treated over 18,000 animals in its first year. These animals previously had extremely limited access to veterinary services.
We are very pleased to have made TOLFA our charity for the 2016- 17 year. The founder of TOLFA Rachel Wright used to locum through our agency many years ago for a few months a year to fund going back out to India to develop the charity in its early stages. We have since had a number of nurses the have worked through our agency that have worked with them and we felt that it was a great idea to raise awareness and money for the charity as it is doing such a wonderful job of caring for animals there. TOLFA have said “We are grateful to Gardner Llewelyn for their support”.
