Salary Survey

Check out our 2023 Salary Survey

We’re excited to announce the publication of the NSV Veterinary Recruitment Salary Survey 2023.

Our comprehensive survey crunches salary data for over 3000 veterinary professionals, drawn from a review of the placements we made in the past 6 months, the current salaries and rates of candidates registering for our services, published vacancies, and our consultants’ market knowledge.

We’ve used this to create a detailed picture of the changing state of the jobs market, future trends, and how people in the industry are feeling about their pay.

Between Covid, Brexit, and stricter visa controls, the talent shortage is more intense than ever, with some practices saying key positions are being left unfilled. The comprehensive NSV Veterinary Recruitment salary benchmark offers detailed insights into the average salaries for specific roles—insights every hiring manager will need to attract and retain talent in the year to come.

Veterinary professionals were asked how satisfied they were with their pay, hours and working conditions, career prospects, and support received. In general, veterinary surgeons and nurses were less satisfied with their pay or career prospects, underlining the importance of getting salaries right.

Our survey shows that 22% of professionals did not receive a pay rise last year despite growing inflation rates.

Whether you’re a hiring manager or a job seeker, you’ll find our 2023 Salary Survey is a vital benchmarking tool.
