Aquarist Team Leader - SEA LIFE at Chessington World of Adventures & Zoo

Job title: Aquarist Team Leader

Company: SEA LIFE at Chessington World of Adventures & Zoo

Salary: £Competitive + great benefits

Location: Chessington, Surrey

What’s involved?

Take a closer look at Chessington World of Adventures & Zoo and you’ll be amazed at what delights lay inside. Like our fantastic SEA LIFE centre, for example. With over 20 marine displays, interactive rock pools, otters, penguins and a breathtaking walkthrough ocean tank, it’s an attraction in its own right and a huge part of a great day out. As our Aquarist Team Leader, you’ll train and supervise Aquarists and Presenters, making sure we continue the mesmerising SEA LIFE experience. Whether you’re supporting animal husbandry and welfare, maintaining the quality of our displays or creating a stimulating and educational environment, you’ll be on-hand to see that everything runs smoothly. You’ll also oversee the more practical aspects of the centre, like producing the annual stock request, updating PR on any useable facts, identifying ways to increase revenue and engaging with our guests.

Who we’re looking for

While you’ll ideally be degree qualified in Marine Biology or a related subject, solid practical experience is essential. You might have worked your way up through a public aquarium over the years, preferably to a supervisory role, or you might have taken up a position direct from University. What matters most however is that you’ve got a sound understanding of life support systems for both marine and freshwater species. You’ll also be a Padi advanced open water diver, with knowledge of aquatic plants and underwater systems. On a more personal level, great communicators, innovative thinkers and those with a flexible approach will really thrive in this fast-paced, active and friendly family environment.

The benefits

Join our fun and friendly team here at SEA LIFE - Chessington World of Adventures and Zoo and you’ll reap the rewards that come with working for Merlin Entertainments, the world’s number two visitor attraction operator. As well as generous benefits that include a competitive rate of pay and a company pension, your Merlin Magic pass will give you free admission to all of our attractions, including Alton Towers Resort, THORPE PARK, Warwick Castle, The London Eye and Madame Tussauds.
