Animal Keeper

Animal Keeper
Full time – 37.5 hours per week, permanent position
Salary £14,613 per annum

The Wild Place Project is now in its second year of operation and expanding fast. Due to this we have an exciting new position within the animal department. Bristol Zoological Society is proud to be continuing on its journey towards achieving the ultimate goal of the National Wildlife Conservation Park.
Building on and celebrating the natural environment, Wild Place will be an invigorating setting that brings nature and the woodland to life. This family-led attraction will focus on fun, play and learning with children and adults being inspired to protect threatened habitats on their doorsteps as well as around the globe.
This role will be part of the animal team and be crucial for ensuring our conservation and wildlife message is top priority, but you will be required to be flexible and assist with wider day to day operating duties as and when necessary.

The successful applicant will be expected to study for the DMZAA qualification in Zoo Animal Management if he/she doesn’t already have this qualification.
