Dan Oates - IT Support Technician
I joined Medivet after a 6 month apprenticeship course. During this time I split my time evenly between working and studying. After being taken on full time I've continued to develop my skills in a more practical way. I spend my spare time either with my nose in a book or playing with/on my computer or games console. I don't have any animals of my own just yet as I've recently moved out. Once I'm able to afford an animal I'm planning on getting at least one kitten!

Nick Saunders - IT Support Engineer
I originally joined Medivet as a Veterinary Nurse with the AbbeyVET clinics but have always had a keen passion for technology. I joined the IT department in 2013 where I have been given a great opportunity to combine my love of animals with my love of IT. At home I have a Staffy called Ollie who was originally brought in to the Dalston branch by the animal warden to be put to sleep, but was instead 'forced' to live with me. Whether or not this has worked out better for him has yet to be determined!
