Locum Info

Overview and Information for Locum Veterinary Workers

For anyone wishing to work as a locum, it is important that you consider a number of areas to ensure that you are correctly set up as a contractor and working in a compliant way within the guidelines of the Inland Revenue and other regulatory elements. It is vital to understand the guidelines set out by the Inland Revenue concerning employment verses self-employment (commonly referred to as IR35) and how this may affect you and the work that you do.

We can also give you information on how best to write your CV and guidance on the variety of work permits available to people wishing to work as a vet or vet nurse in Britain.

We will do our best to help you with all of the elements that combine to make your locum experience a positive one and we also have a selection of external, professional contacts that we can put you in touch with, covering a range of additional locum support services. Whilst considering your preferences and the context of your work, it’s important to understand what your options are and the factors to consider in order to make an informed decision on what will work best for you, whether that is self-employment, running a Ltd Company or utilising the services of an umbrella service.
