    Organisational background

    Fakenham Farm and Equine Vets is a mixed large animal practice serving the area of West Norfolk, North Norfolk and Breckland. Opened in October 2021 by Howard and his wife Katrina, the business is rapidly growing based on a reputation for excellent clinical care delivered along with a personal service.

    Organisation aims & mission

    Fakenham Farm and Equine Vets is here not just to provide outstanding clinical service to our clients but also to be part of the farm and equine community in our area. We will provide excellent customer service to support our clients through every aspect of veterinary care. We aim to have a workplace where everyone enjoys themselves and has fun.

  • Company values
    • Kindness: Being kind to each other is at the core of every decision we make. Not only in how this relates to clients but also in looking after each other and ourselves.
    • Respect: We treat our clients with respect. Clients and their animals are treated fairly and equally regardless of circumstance.
    • Community: Being part of the community means supporting those around us without expecting anything in return. As an example we have committed to providing free routine dental care to all Riding School and RDA horses in the area.
    • Sustainability: This is very important to us. We promote sustainability both within the business, as well as to our farm clients. Beyond efficiency of production, we like to encourage discussion about soil health, plastic use, responsible medicine usage, regenerative farming and other sustainability initiatives.
    • Fun: When it comes to it, we have to have fun. We want everyone who works here to enjoy being part of Fakenham Farm and Equine Vets as well as having enough time and energy to enjoy life outside of work.

  • What makes your organization a great place to work?

    Our small, family run business is only young – We are driven and enthusiastic. We are really proud of what we have started and want everyone who works here to feel the same. We have invested, and will continue to invest, in our equipment and people. We have 2 young children so we understand that life comes first. Without a work-life balance you can’t be expected to be the best you can be at work. We will encourage you professionally in every way we can. Whatever your interest is, we will try help you nurture it. On top of the standard CPD allowances you will have a dedicated half day every month to use for CPD as you wish.

    Watch Back our Interview the Boss:

  • Describe an ideal employee at your organization

    We are principally looking for someone who fits with our ethos and direction and who wants to be part of building the business for the future. We want to employ people who are happy to stop for a cup of coffee and take time to build relationships with clients. We are a mixed large animal practice so vets should be confident around and capable of working with both farm stock and horses. If the above points all describe you then it won’t matter what role you prefer within the business. Whether you enjoy lameness in horses or routine scanning of dairy cows we will make the job work for you and help you to grow and develop.
