She's a highly-skilled veterinary doctor and is employed part of the week, self-employed the other part. I believe in the medium-term she would be looking to work in a French surgery, either on an employed or self-employed basis.

You must be absolutely fluent to work credibly here.

Rather a sweeping statement.
If you mean in a veterinary or other medical practice, I agree.
However, I'm frequently in contact with newly arrived british personnel in the aircraft industry at Toulouse (skilled and semi-skilled), very credible workers, who don't speak a word of French, and unless they are in a managerial position are not required to.

https://www.veterinaire.fr/exercer-l...uropeenne.html
confirms that a qualified EU vet can register if he/she satisfies the language requirement. I didn't read the Article of the Code concerning this, but imagine that the level is very high....

https://www.veterinaire.fr/exercer-l...r-liberal.html
on the same site also gives info on vétérinaires libéraux (self-employed) if your partner, once registered, doesn't wish for salaried employment.

P.S. I'm a bit confused, as in your 1st post, you said that your partner's employer is willing to allow her to work from home in France. Also that she doesn't like the work much. That doesn't sound compatible with working as a Vet....

Wow, that is courageous. However if it's with a company in the aircraft industry, I imagine that a lot of things are layed out and arranged for them, to help them to adapt and integrate. If one comes over to settle here without a company backing one up, it's a entirely different story.
