Veterinary Nurse – part-time - Edinburgh Zoo

The Royal Zoological Society of Scotland (RZSS) owns and manages Edinburgh Zoo and the Highland Wildlife Park. The Wildlife Park is a premier visitor attraction, based at Kingussie in the Highlands, with many Scottish and other species, some of which are now extinct in the wild. Edinburgh Zoo is the second biggest paying visitor attraction in Scotland (after the Castle along the road), with over 650,000 people each year enjoying an excellent day out. Of equal importance is our excellent international reputation for our conservation and education programmes and we are looking to the future with confidence. We’ve been a charity since our founding in 1909 and maintain a keen commercial edge to ensure we can sustain our excellent reputation. Our mission is to inspire and excite our visitors with the wonder of living animals, and thus to promote the conservation of threatened species and habitats.
