EMS, Work Experience and Volunteering Information

Work Experience 

Currently on hold due to the Covid-19 situation.

We do accept certain students wishing to follow a career with animals for work experience. We are overwhelmed with request and there are some rules in place not only to give everyone a fair chance but also to take into account the veterinary environment and Health and Safety. Please read on to see our work experience requirements.


Sadly we are unable to accept volunteer helpers because of the high levels of supervision that would be required. If you are interested in a volunteer job with animals in Swindon you could try looking for Swindon based animal charities or rescue homes.
