Deputy Curator - Blue Planet Aquarium

Deputy Curator  - Blue Planet Aquarium
A unique opportunity has arisen for a Deputy Curator to join the Blue Planet Aquarium Zoological Team.

The department is responsible for all displays, including our 3.8 million litre shark tank; as well as a diverse collection of terrestrial vertebrates and invertebrates.

Reporting to the Curator, you will be responsible for the day to day management of the Aquarist and Dive Team.

A hands-on approach is required to ensure the team achieve the highest standard of animal care and husbandry.

You will also promote a high standard of health and safety for all Aquarium visitors and staff.

As Britain’s Best Aquarium it’s important that all our visitors have a magical day out and this is where you play a part.
With your strong communication, leadership skills and ‘lead by example’ management style you will motivate and inspire your team to deliver engaging, informative and educational presentations through public talks or classroom sessions, as well as ensuring you and your team converse with our visitors whilst carrying out your daily duties around the aquarium.

It would be advantageous, although not essential if you had a PADI Divemaster Qualification or equivalent as the post would require you to instruct or assist on our Dive Nights.
If you don’t meet this criteria, then you must be willing to undertake PADI Divemaster training if appointed.

If interested, please send your CV & covering letter to: Janeen Pickup, Aspro UK Group HR Manager, c/o Blue Planet Aquarium, Cheshire Oaks, Cheshire, CH65 9LF.
Or email us at:

Your application letter should highlight why you would be able to fulfil this key role within the organisation and clearly demonstrate how you meet our requirements.
Please include your salary expectations.

Blue Planet Aquarium is committed to Equal Opportunities.

Closing Date: Friday, 29th April 2011
