Accepting a position at Manuka Vet was one of the best decisions I ever made. There is so much to learn your first year out of university, and as a new graduate, I was really nervous about starting my veterinary career. The team at Manuka was amazingly supportive. With their guidance, I learned how to confidently manage a surgical caseloads as well of lots of common medical issues. The other vets were always happy to discuss my cases with me, and encouraged me to ask lots of questions. Within six months, I felt much more confident about my abilities than I had expected.
It was also great to work with a team who genuinely like each other. The vets and nurses at Manuka treat each other with respect and kindness even in the most challenging times, and I think that positive attitude really makes a difference in how you feel at the end of the day.
If you get the opportunity to work at Manuka Vet Hospital I would highly recommend you jump at the chance.
