2 x Animal Keeper Internships (unpaid)
on either Gorilla or Elephant Section
Situated near Canterbury in Kent, Howletts Wild Animal Park works in conjunction with The Aspinall Foundation; a charity committed to conservation and the reintroduction of captive bred species back into their natural habitats.
We have 2 exciting placements available for enthusiastic individuals wanting to gain valuable zoo animal keeping experience through working alongside keepers and benefiting from being involved in our ground breaking reintroduction projects. There is one placement available for the Gorilla Section and one for the Elephant Section, not a combination of the two.
We are looking for candidates who are willing to commit to a 6 month term and be willing and available to come in from 8am to 5pm, 5 days per week including weekends.
These placements are physically demanding positions so candidates must be physically fit, self motivated and have a genuine interest in conservation and zoo animal care. A valid driving licence is required and please be aware that unfortunately we are unable to offer accommodation.
The internships are unpaid and would benefit those already qualified in conservation or animal care and looking for further specialist zoo experience.
To apply: email your CV and covering letter outlining why you are the right person for the internship to

Please make sure you put the position you are applying for in the subject line either:
GORILLA INTERN or ELEPHANT INTERN
Closing date: Friday 8th November 2013
