Blackpool Zoo is looking for an experienced Primate keeper to assist in the daily care and husbandry needs of over twenty species of Primates that it currently maintains, many of which are managed as part of captive breeding programmes including Gorillas and Orang-utans.

You will need to be hard working, physically fit, enthusiastic and reliable. You should possess the Advanced National Certificate in the Management of zoo Animals or an equivalent and have a minimum of three years Primate keeping experience. Some experience with Great Apes would be advantageous although not essential.

In return we offer a competitive salary, pension scheme and the opportunity to further your career within the zoological world.

Subsidised single occupancy (on site) accommodation is available with this post, if required.

Blackpool Zoo is ideally and conveniently located on the outskirts of the "UK most popular holiday resort". Less than a 5 minute drive from the M55 motorway, the zoos site is also easily accessible from numerous rural villages in the surrounding area. The zoo itself is situated in a well established green belt area of the town and is only a 10 minute drive away from the town centre, which offers a veritable feast of nightlife, entertainment and shopping as well as the famous Golden Mile coastline. Blackpool can genuinely offer "something for everyone", from singles to families, yet, within an hour drive of this vibrant town you can be in the Lake District, Manchester or even the Yorkshire Dales

The closing date for applications is the10th April 2011.
