At PDSA it’s important to us to go beyond better, knowing we all have a part to play in achieving our mission.
We recognise that successful performance comes from a combination of factors:
- The knowledge required to deliver a role.
- The skills that provide the ability to carry out the role.
- The behaviours that guide us to work in the best way for the organisation.
We support all of our colleagues
to understand who we are, what we believe in and what is expected of them, we provide a consistent, well-defined set of organisational values. They help our teams to form a compass for decision making and ways of working.
. Whatever our roles, we are passionate about making a difference to the lives of pets with prevention, education and treatments. As our founder Maria Dickin said, ‘we help, we care and we teach’. These values apply to those we help and those who help us. So when you join us at PDSA, we offer you a range of rewarding career opportunities and employee benefits.

We’ll also provide you with great resources such as modern, well maintained equipment in our PDSA Pet Hospitals, to great office facilities in our support teams.
We care about your health and wellbeing
