DEVELOPMENT AT TAH
We believe that you achieve big shifts by improving the small things. We can do this if we have teams of highly-skilled, happy and engaged people giving our customers and patients the best care possible.
Nurturing and providing our people with the best possible tools and skills is therefore central to everything we do and provides the platform to provide progressive care in our practices.
TAH VET GRADUATE PROGRAMME
ABOUT THE PROGRAMME
The TAH Vet Graduate Programme aims to lay the foundation for newly qualified vets’ career success. Not only does it offer 12 months of learning to fast-track your personal development while you work, it also boasts modules to develop your soft skills, self-care and your wellness
The Graduate Programme also includes:
- Group sessions with clinical experts.
- Comprehensive self-study material on a variety of clinical topics.
- Monthly 1-on-1 mentoring to support your learning.
When I joined someone said that TAH always seems to employ friendly people. You don’t feel nervous to ask questions of more senior, experienced vets. They are willing to give input freely – this is far less pressure for the new grad and you don’t have to feel like you must know everything.
Dr Jarryd Thorpe
They staff are supportive and give you space to learn and always eager to jump in and assist. The practice is big, but they maintain the family feeling and mean it when they say the people come first. Another benefit of working for TAH Is that you have more resources at your disposal.

ELECTIVES & PRACTICAL SUPPORT FOR VETERINARY COURSES
Most students that are registered to complete qualifications in the veterinary field are, at some point, required to obtain practical experience as part of their course. At TAH we have a proud record of supporting veterinary students where we can.
SOUTH AFRICAN STUDENTS
We are able to support South African students that are required to register for practical experience as part of their course (BVSc, BVetNurs or Diplomas in Animal Health). There are allocated practices in our group that have the resources and the experience to assist.
Make your request to email@example.com with at least 2 months’ notice so that we can coordinate with our rosters and staff leave. Provide the following detail:
As a group, we support mainly South African students and, as such, often have students rotating through our practices. Whilst we would very much like to support all students, due to constraints on our clinical staff, we generally do not support students studying veterinary qualifications outside South Africa with their practical requirements.

“It is great to have a management group – we don’t have to think about HR and finance on a day-to-day basis. Not only are the practices very well-equipped, but we have backup when something goes wrong.”
Dr Cathy Bezuidenhout
“At TAH Bellville we are open about mental health and many staff are open to talking about where they are at. I would feel comfortable addressing the topic with my managers – this is a safe space for people to address this issue.”

“At TAH Bellville, TAH's largest practice, we work your shift and when your shift is over you go home. There is minimal overtime and weekend hours are reasonable. Working hours are a big benefit to balancing work and family.”
