Linnaeus Twilight Veterinary Surgeon in Huntingdon, United Kingdom

Job Title : Twilight Veterinary Surgeon

Salary : Up to £38,000 (Depending on Experience)

Location : Cromwell Veterinary - Huntingdon

Job Type : Permanent

Hours : Monday-Friday 4pm-12am every other week (20hours per week average). Additional weekday and weened shifts available.

Would you like to be part of a progressive and supportive ECC team?

We are looking for a Veterinary Surgeon, with a passion for ECC, to join our experienced and friendly night team. We already have 4 amazing night vets (including an ECC certificate holder) and we are looking for another vet to work alongside them. You would also be working with two experienced Night Registered Veterinary Nurses (RVNs) and a twilight nurse.

Our twilight shifts are 4pm-midnight Monday-Friday and the role covers inpatient care, emergency consultations and procedures. We cover OOH for our hospital and 5 branches plus 4 local practices so we have a varied caseload but still have sufficient time to manage cases to the highest standard. This position would suit an experienced ECC vet who is looking to move away from night shifts or a vet who would like to develop their ECC experience as there is the opportunity for case discussion with experienced colleagues.

You will be joining a very welcoming and experienced team of Vets, Nurses and PCA’s, who all support each other. All of our Associates are committed to the care of our clients and their pets and we would love to hear from applicants who share the same values. Many of our clinical team hold certificates in medicine, surgery, cardiology and ECC, with two Advanced Practitioners in medicine. We encourage a culture of learning from one and another and ensure there is ample opportunity for this. We also have a monthly Clinical Club and regular M&M meetings.


  • Working pattern is 4pm-midnight Monday to Friday every other week

  • Option to explore alternative rota patterns including additional weekend daytime ECC shifts or additional weekday shifts in weeks off
