Not all recruitment agencies are created equal. Some agencies flick CVs onto vet clinics and then leave the job seeker to negotiate everything themselves. VetStaff isn’t like that – we do recruitment different. Here are four case study examples of successful outcomes we’ve negotiated on behalf of our job seekers

In this episode Julie talks about:

  • information you need to know to successfully negotiate a pay increase
  • why you need to start planning months in advance
  • why it’s important you know your ‘numbers’ before you start negotiating

Case Study #1 – Vet – $21kpa increase

  • 6-month new grad looking for her second job
  • VetStaff were given five days to organise a job interview
    • in four days they had three interviews 
    • job offer was signed within a week
    • $21kpa increase on what she was earning
    • Clinic didn’t realise job offers could be made up the way this one was

Case Study #2 – locum turned permanent employee – $30kpa increase

  • Locum vet who wanted a permanent position
  • Was being pressured to sign an offer the vet had arranged themselves
  • VetStaff organised two job offers over a long weekend – both at $30kpa more than the original offer

Case Study #3 – employed vet at annual salary review – $20kpa

  • Vet wanted to negotiate a pay increase at her annual review
    • didn’t know what she was worth or where to start
    • Julie sent her away with ‘homework’ which she did
    • role played through different negotiation scenarios
    • Vet walked out with $20kpa increase

Case Study #4 – employed Vet Nurse at annual salary review – $5ph increase

  • Vet Nurse wanted to negotiate pay increase at her annual review
    • didn’t know what she was worth or where to start
    • Julie sent her away with ‘homework’ – which she did
    • role played through different negotiation scenarios
    • VN walked out with a $5ph pay increase.

VetStaff does more than recruitment

With NZs borders opening up, VetStaff has upped the ante on its international marketing campaigns again.  

Unless you run a VPN it’s unlikely you’ll see what we’re up to because they’re running in the Northern Hemisphere.  

We’ve targeted just about every country there’s a veterinary science degree that’s recognised by the NZVC for full registration.  

If you’d like to benefit from these campaigns get in touch because clinics that are registered with us exclusively get first dibs on interviewing these vets after we’ve done all their interviews and background checks.
