My Vet Future

My Vet Future is an online careers hub which offers future and existing vets and vet nurses comprehensive content and resources to support and inspire them at every step of their careers.

The site provides valuable content for those interested in becoming a vet professional or developing their existing career. Information centres around career stage, from student to retirement, and individuals can access content relevant to their specialism and work sector, as well as advice on how to take their career in a new direction.

Developed by BVA and Vet Record the site has been created as part of the Vet Futures project, the joint BVA/RCVS initiative, which set out a vision for the veterinary profession and recommended the creation of a one-stop-shop for careers advice and support to promote diverse career opportunities.
