The Aspinall Foundation is a registered charity that is actively involved with several projects incorporating a diverse range of conservation activities both at their Kent based Howletts Wild Animal Park & Port Lympne Reserve and overseas projects in the Congo, Gabon, Indonesia and Madagascar.
We are looking for an enthusiastic and motivated individual to join our team of dedicated carnivore keepers at Howletts Wild Animal Park. The ideal candidate will have experience in a mainstream zoological collection (preferably in a similar position) and an awareness of current conservation issues and a passion for animal welfare.
This is a physically demanding position so candidates must be physically fit. A full valid driving licence is essential to the role. Ideally you will posses experience of good all round animal husbandry skills and be enthusiastic in contributing to the enrichment of the primate species around the park. Holding a recognised Zoo Animal Management qualification and being comfortable interacting with the public would be an advantage.
Working 5 days a week, including weekends and bank holidays, the successful candidate will have a genuinely flexible approach to working hours. Single person accommodation may be available.
All applicants must have right to work in the UK.
Closing date: Friday 10th April 2015.
To apply, please email a CV along with a covering letter to Joanna Stephens: firstname.lastname@example.org
