Join our vibrant organisation!
As an action oriented conservation charity, Marwell Wildlife’s desire is to connect people with nature. Through enthusing people about the wonders of the natural world we’re certain they’ll share our passion to conserve it. Our success relies on two key things. The impression we create through our 140 acre zoological park, Marwell Zoo, with its wide array of exotic and endangered species and the family of talented people we employ who share our passion and bring our vision to life.
A great opportunity has arisen for a Zoo Veterinarian to join our team on a permanent basis.
The successful post-holder will provide veterinary care to collection animals, promoting the highest standards of animal welfare, continue to develop preventative health care programmes and continue the development of Veterinary services at Marwell in conjunction with the Head of Veterinary Services.
The successful candidate will be a Member of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons and hold an RCVS recognised veterinary degree or equivalent. The post holder must have significant experience as a practicing Veterinary Surgeon. Experience with zoo, wildlife or exotic pet species would be advantageous.
Applicants must have clear and effective written and oral communication skills, have good budget management skills and be highly organised, with the ability to meet numerous demands working to tight deadlines. Applicants must be IT literate with good Word and Excel skills.
Due to the need to drive park vehicles, candidates must also hold a full driving license valid for the UK.
