Rota and out-of-hours arrangements;

The updated Code is now being introduced by Veterinary Ireland and IFP Media and all those advertising job vacancies are requested to comply with this Code of Practice.
While allowing for an introductory period, the National Council has determined that all classifieds printed in the VIJ will need to comply with this Code from the October 2017 print edition of the VIJ.
Please note that any classifieds not complying with this Code from October onwards will NOT be included in the print edition of the VIJ or included on the VIJ website. The continued cooperation of all those using the VIJ's Classifieds section in following this Veterinary Ireland Code of Practice is appreciated. by Veterinary Ireland and its members.
