Parco Faunistico Valcorba , a 20 ha  developing and exciting zoo located in north of Italy  near Venice and Padoa, has an exciting opportunity for an experienced keeper to join our Mammal team. You will be responsible for the hands-on day-to-day husbandry of a large and diverse collection of mammals, with a focus on carnivores.

The ideal candidate will have previous experience working with similar species, in a mainstream zoological collection and an awareness of current conservation issues and a passion for animal welfare.

The successful candidate will be expected to have an animal-based qualification and as this is a physically demanding role, candidates must be physically fit. Candidates will need to have a full driving licence. Experience driving tractors and off-road vehicles would be advantageous. Due to the position of the park your own transport is essential.

Italian language is mandatory.

Please send a detailed CV and covering letter explaining why you wish to be considered for this post to Pietro Laricchiuta  by email to

Only shortlisted candidates will be contacted.

Deadline 15/06/2018
