Birdworld, Farnham
Senior Keeper - Aviculture

We have a vacancy for a Senior Bird Keeper to join our team.

The role will involve deputising for our Head Keeper on days off, assisting the head keeper in the care and management of the bird collection ensuring high standards of animal welfare and public display.

We have over 160 species of bird within the park ranging from sunbirds to ratites and work together with other collections to ensure that threatened species as well as good avicultural exhibits can be maintained into the future.

We are seeking someone with a proven record working with birds, ideally in a public collection, and the ability to motivate colleagues to achieve their best results.

Our bird keepers work along side our education / presentations team and are expected to help with public presentations and events, so some experience in training of birds would be useful.

An understanding of avian incubation, hand and parent rearing of a range of species is required. An understanding of basic health and safety in the workplace is expected, and some knowledge of the particular regulations affecting the operation of zoos would be beneficial.

The successful applicant will be enthusiastic, willing and knowledgeable, whilst being keen to learn more and having a good team ethic.
