Deputy Section Head of Primates

Deputy Section Head of Primates
Permanent Position

Twycross Zoo – East Midland Zoological Society (TZEMS), the World Primate Centre, has over 1,000 animals and is the most comprehensive collection of primate species and subspecies in the western world.

A position has become available for a deputy section head keeper to work on our Primates Section, which includes Old and New World monkeys and lemurs, although there may be opportunities to cross train between other sections. Zoo-based experience is essential, including a minimum of 5 years practical management of primates. Experience of supervising staff and the BIAZA approved Sparsholt College ANCMZA/DMZAA would be desirable but an equivalent zoo animal-related qualification could be considered.

The role is full time, including weekend duties on a rota system. Salary is paid monthly and we provide uniform, 31 days holiday, 5% employer’s pension contribution.
