We offer you first-hand experience within the Park/Zoo community with plenty of support, training and development of you as an individual. Following our placement you will develop skills in animal management & husbandry, organisation & planning, and teamwork & communication, and gain a realistic idea of the intense physical demands of the role.

This placement is aimed at undergraduate students who:

Please note that undergraduates must be enrolled on a course which is relevant to the role and priority will be given to those students who must undertake a placement as part of their course.

The placement will start on 4th September 2017 and finish on 31st August 2018.
