Interpreter - Fixed Term Contract
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.
An excellent opportunity has arisen for an Interpreter to join our team on a fixed term contract until the 28th February 2017. You will be working 35 hours per week on a rota basis (including weekends). You will be responsible for delivering a wide range of talks to both guests and staff. You will also be required to deliver our animal encounter experiences, whilst researching and sourcing the information needed to contribute to other public engagement activities.
Applicants must be confident, enthusiastic and engaging, with the skill to present information in such a way as to spark interest and inspire action. Previous experience of working with and presenting to a variety of audiences (children and adults) in small groups would be advantageous.
Excellent verbal and written communication, customer service and presentation skills are essential, as well as a commitment to education, biodiversity, conservation and environmental protection.
