Experienced Zoo Keeper - Flamingo Land Zoo
Closing date: 28 March 2010
Flamingo Land zoological department is looking for an experienced zoo keeper to join our team. Flamingo Land is one of the leading tourist attractions in the UK, attracting more than 1.4 million visitors each year. The zoo is in an exciting phase of development that has recently seen the creation of a number of themed zoogeographic areas and the development of the education and conservation departments. The successful candidate will be expected to work with a variety of taxa, including large ungulates, carnivores, primates, birds and reptiles. All of our zoo keepers are encouraged to participate in a range of activities which include research, environmental enrichment and education.
You will have at least three years experience working in a zoological collection and have passed the Advanced National Certificate in the Management of Zoo Animals. Experience with Carnivores and Primates would be an advantage, but you will receive direct training in the husbandry of these species. You will also be enthusiastic, reliable and a good team player.
Interviews will take place during the week beginning the 29th March 2010.
