We have a position available as a Senior Animal Keeper to join our Animal Management Team.
Candidates will have a strong general taxanomic knowledge which will allow them the flexibility to work across all sections in the park, however the role will primarily focus on hoofstock, and therefore previous experience and a keen interest would be beneficial in this area.

Applicants will need to have previous experience in animal husbandry within a zoological collection, hold 5 GCSE’s or equivalent and a valid driving licence. The DMZAA or equivalent qualification is essential at Senior Keeper level.
