EAZA Animal Welfare Training Officer

The European Association of Zoos and Aquaria (EAZA) have received funding from Fondation Segré to employ an Animal Welfare Training Officer.  This post is for an experienced candidate with a proven track record in animal welfare and enrichment, as well as strong skills in communication and education.  The successful candidate will be based in Amsterdam, and expected to travel across Europe to provide training and liaise with governing authorities dealing with animal welfare in zoos and aquariums.
