“With almost 15 years’ experience recruiting quality veterinary and technical staff for our own company, HallMark has developed strong relationships with universities and professional bodies in the UK and throughout the rest of Europe. We’re not an agency so we really do understand the problems of recruitment and we’re now in a position to help other veterinary practices, charities and corporates find good people too.”
Patrick Steel, Resource Manager


As an Animal & Plant Health Agency (APHA) Delivery Partner, we provide qualified veterinary and technical resource for long and short term contracts, to support disease surveillance, animal health and welfare and public health. In addition, we offer expert advice through our extensive team of veterinarians.

Our vets working in the field of animal health are multi-skilled and competent in carrying out a range of core state veterinary duties. They have practical animal handling abilities, excellent communication skills and experience of routine large animal clinical work and disease investigation. Our expert team also includes epidemiologists, pathologists and technicians.

In addition to providing personnel, we offer a range of other services including tailor made training and veterinary research.
