If you’re a recent or new vet science graduate of Massey University then regardless of where you’re working in New Zealand, you’ve probably heard of, or met, Krispin Kannan as he’s been quite involved with Massey’s MMI for vet students over the years.

Multi Mini Interviews – Massey University

MMI is part of the Massey BVSc pre-selection programme – they’re the 8 Multi Mini Interviews potential vet science students go through.   

Krispin Kannan has been on the panel where students get to go a round of 8 short, structured interviews lasting 8 minutes each.

Krispin Kannan – Large Animal Veterinarian at VetEnt

Krispin started working for the Veterinary Enterprises Group Limited – VetEnt – straight out of Massey in December 2010 in Te Awamutu as a Large Animal Veterinarian.

Production Animal Business Manager

In February 2019 he was appointed the Production Animal Business Manager – a position he held until mid-2021.

Krispin took some time out by doing a bit of locum work until March 2022 before returning to VetEnt to be part of its Integrated Solutions Business Development team.   

Integrated Solutions Business Development Team

Krispin says Integrated Business Solutions is a fancy name for a focussed role dedicated to understand and utilise technology solutions within veterinary practice that enhance the performance & wellbeing of their client businesses and animals. 

He’s excited to begin this journey with a focus on cow wearables – which are collars and tags, the data they produce and how VetEnt’s veterinary teams can integrate and deliver value to their customers using this information.

Today, Krispin and I talk about his MBA – which he studied for at The University of Waikato between 2017 and 2019, locuming on his OE, how he ended up as a large animal vet when he was also considering small animal surgery and life in general.

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.
