At ZSL Whipsnade Zoo, we receive hundreds of thousands of visitors every year, many of whom are families, children and school groups. We are looking for Presenters to enthrall, engage and interact with our key audiences through our fantastic range of daily live events and through hosting the popular new Lookout Lodge camping experience.
We are passionate about our animals and you will have a talent for inspiring that same passion in our visitors. You will use your advanced communications skills to engage visitors in one-to-one discussions, lead groups in interactive workshops and tours, or perform to large audiences of all ages.
We understand that our visitors can be as varied as the amazing animals we have at ZSL and our Presenters are just as confident interacting with our youngest first time visitors as with our lifetime supporters. Your days will be spent helping visitors get the most out of our exhibits, by leading and presenting a range of public events to inspire, entertain and educate our audiences about the varied work of the ZSL.
You will receive full support to learn new material and develop your presenting style. Experience of working with children is essential, ideally in an informal learning context. A full driving licence and first aid qualification are desirable.
Part time shifts available for either daytime or evening work. You must be available to start in March with contracts ending in late September or late October. Applicants will need to be flexible as weekend working is required.
Please send your CV with a covering letter outlining your suitability to: HR Department, ZSL Whipsnade Zoo, Dunstable, Bedfordshire, LU6 2LF or email email@example.com
Closing date for applications: Sunday 17th February
Interviews will take place on: Tuesday 26th February
