The Netherlands is recruiting 100 veterinarians
The Dutch Food and Consumer Product Safety Authority (NVWA) is seeking all over the EU veterinarians to act as inspectors of all livestock, meat and fish that go to the United Kingdom after 29 March. In the case of a no-deal, the United Kingdom is regarded as a so-called 'third country' and all goods must be inspected.
143 positions have been created, of which 100 are veterinarians, and in the absence of sufficient Dutch candidates-veterinarians, veterinarians from Flanders and Southern and Eastern Europe have also been recruited. These veterinarians are now undergoing training in the Dutch language and are being trained in the profession of inspectors, announced NVWA.
In the first class, 23 South and East European vets are in training alongside Flemings, followed by another 36 soon.
