As a business we take sustainability, environmental and carbon
impacts very seriously both in and out of the workplace. We donate
to lots of charity's, but we don't often shout about it.
But, on this occasion we felt we should and get more people involved...! With deforestation across the world increasing at an alarming rate, more CO2 is released into the atmosphere causing devastating effects on our planet.
So, partly in a bid to offset our CO2, we have partnered with Tree-Nation a non-profit association founded in 2006 and started our very own Forest of Vet Seekers to support their programme with the fight against climate change and deforestation.
We all know that trees can help to cool our planet by capturing
and storing carbon but they also benefit the environment by
providing life for all sorts of other plants and animals. They also
create sustainable jobs, improve our soil, purify water and the air
we all breathe, along with so many other positive
So, with your help we aim to plant 10,000 trees by the end 2021.
We have committed to planting trees for every permanent and locum
veterinary superstar we find work for, as well as every referral we
- On behalf of every permanent candidate that starts a new job via Vet Seekers, we commit to planting 50 trees into the Forest of Vet Seekers.
- For every locum (Vet or RVN) that works via Vet Seekers each day, we will plant 1 tree into the Forest of Vet Seekers. 1 locum day worked = 1 locum tree planted...!
- For every veterinary surgeon or veterinary nurse referral we receive, Vet Seekers will plant 50 trees. So veterinary job seekers, start speaking with Vet Seekers!
You will receive an email with the instructions and information regarding your very own tree planting and to show you where you have helped. How good is this...!!
