Park Guide Part Time
Trentham Monkey Forest is unique to the UK, with 140 free roaming Barbary macaques living within a 60-acre forest. We are looking for confident, friendly, customer focused people to join our exceptional team of guides. In this role, you will work in close proximity to the monkeys, ensuring visitors experience an informative and enjoyable visit.
The role involves monitoring safety in the park and talking to visitors including delivering our hourly feeding talks. The ability to work confidently in a fast-paced environment, both within a team and on your own is important. Experience with public speaking is desirable, although not essential. All training will be given in-house.
This is a temporary seasonal post until the end of October 2017. You will be required to work weekends, bank holidays and school holidays (part time hours during term time, full-time hours during school holidays). Preference will be given to candidates who can work until the end of October, however, exceptional candidates who cannot work the full duration may still be considered.
Deadline for applications is 5 pm, 9th July; however, this advert may close early if a suitable candidate is appointed before this date. If you have not heard within 2 weeks of your application I am afraid you have been unsuccessful.
Please note: Applications will not be accepted without all 3 documents, ‘CV’, ‘Covering Letter’ and ‘Availability Form’ which can be downloaded from our website.
