Here at All Things Wild Nature Centre we are currently in our next phase of development with exciting times ahead. As the zoo expands, so does the need for new keepers to join our zoo keeper team.
An exciting opportunity has arisen for the need of a full time animal keeper to work 5 days a week including bank holidays and weekends. The successful applicant will have a keen passion for the natural world and conservation. A good eye for detail and high standards for animal husbandry are a must.

Other key requirements:
•        Previous experience working in a zoological facility is essential. A comprehensive induction programme will be offered.
•        The DMZAA animal course is advantageous but not necessary.
•        Must have a can do attitude.
•        Strong verbal communication skills and good customer care skills as she/he will be delivering animal presentations/talks to our visitors.
•        An excellent time keeper.
•        Work well as part of a team.
•        A full UK driving license is essential.

As part of the interview you are required to present a short talk about an animal at All things wild. The presentation should be appropriate for family groups.
