Head of Safari

Head of Safari
Longleat Safari Park - Wiltshire
Salary £35-40,000 + benefits
During the last four years, Longleat has been undergoing a period of significant change. These changes have affected many aspects of the Safari Park, with considerable   improvements to the supporting infrastructure, systems and procedures. At the heart of every change has been the desire to enhance the reputation of Longleat and to dramatically improve the visitor experience.

As a result of a recent re-structure, the post of ‘Head of Safari’ has been created. The key responsibility is to support the Director of Animal Operations in creating an amazing animal collection and experience for the visitors. You will manage a large team of experienced keepers, who have significant knowledge of their specialist species.  You will also run the Safari Park on a day to day basis and therefore must be an effective manager, have extensive commercial experience and be operationally focussed.

Further, you will work with the Director of Animal Operations and the Management team to manage and enhance the animal collections.  Our animal populations includes carnivores, a significant range of hoofstock and deer.

The successful candidate is likely to have 5-10 years of experience gained within a safari park or similar Leisure attraction. You do not need specific experience of the above species, but knowledge of guidelines that govern the industry will be important. You will also be required to be computer literate.

This is a unique opportunity for someone who wants to progress their career with an amazing leisure brand, working alongside a dynamic and forward thinking team.
If you would like to apply, please send an up to date cv to Mike Best at Best Talent Solutions.
