  Howletts Wild Animal Park in Canterbury, Kent is recruiting for the full time position of Primate Keeper.
 Applicants must have a proven track record in a similar position at a recognised zoological collection. You must possess good all round animal husbandry skills and be enthusiastic in contributing to the enrichment of the primate species around the park.
 A practical and proactive approach, coupled with good organisation and communication skills and an overall understanding of the role of a modern animal collection is essential, as is a full clean driving licence.
 Only applicants who fit the above criteria will be considered.
 Single person accommodation may be available.
 Howletts is a world class wildlife park run by the international conservation charity The Aspinall Foundation, and works to support a number of overseas conservation projects including the Java Primate Project in Indonesia. We are home to a collection of around 170 rare and endangered primates, including Javan gibbons, Dusky langurs, Sulawesi macaques, Pied tamarins and Gelada baboons to name a few.
 We have recently built a rescue and rehabilitation centre in Java where rare Indonesian primates can be confiscated and taken care of; with a view to either returning them back to the wild or providing them with a better quality of life. Ultimately, captive bred animals may also relocate to the centre, providing offspring that could boost the wild population when reintroduction conditions are right.
  Closing date: Friday 7th June 2013 To apply:
Please email an up to date CV along with a covering letter to: personnel@aspinallfoundation.org Or post to:
Human Resources, Port Lympne Wild Animal Park, Lympne, Kent CT21 4PD.
