Flamingo Land Zoo

Closing date: 26th February 2012

Flamingo Land zoological department is looking for a zookeeper to join our team. Flamingo Land is one of the leading tourist attractions in the UK, attracting more than 1.4 million visitors each year. The zoo is in an exciting phase of development that has recently seen the creation of a number of themed zoogeographic areas and the development of the education, conservation and research departments.


The successful candidate will initially be focused on our brand new Children’s Planet exhibit and Muddy Duck Farm exhibit, which includes meerkats, porcupines, coatis, Asian short-clawed otters, banded mongoose, warthog, Visayan warty pigs, red river hogs and more. There will also be an opportunity to be trained on other animal sections within the zoo. All of our zoo keepers are encouraged to participate in a range of activities which include research, environmental enrichment and education.

The successful candidate will have experience working in a zoological collection and have passed the Advanced National Certificate in the Management of Zoo Animals (or equivalent). Experience with any of the above mentioned species would be an advantage, but you will receive direct training in the husbandry of these species. The successful candidate will be expected to be very personable and able to communicate well with the visitors, including delivering public talks. The successful candidate will also be enthusiastic and a good team player.

Interviews will take place during the week beginning the 27th February 2012.

Please send a CV and covering letter before 26th February 2012 to:
