Veterinary Nurse in Zoological and Conservation Medicine

Veterinary Nurse in Zoological and Conservation Medicine

Howletts & Port Lympne Wild Animal Parks are situated in South East Kent and work in conjunction with The Aspinall Foundation as part of a charity committed to protecting rare and endangered animals from extinction trough captive breeding and reintroduction programmes.

Howletts & Port Lympne parks have enjoyed great success in the breeding of many rare and endangered species in captivity, our long term objective has always been the introduction of captive breed species back to their natural habitat and we have had some notable successes with this.

We  have a vacancy for a Registered Veterinary Nurse to work with our veterinary team in the area of zoological and conservation medicine for a 5 month temporary contract with the possibility of permanancy.  The position would start at the beginning of August.  The candidate will work with our established veterinary team. This position would ideally suit a veterinary nurse with experience of  general practice, preferably experience in zoological medicine and at least a keen interest in zoological/exotic  medicine.

Daily travel to Howletts Wild Animal Park will be required so a valid driving license is essential. Own transport will occasionally be needed.

Working hours will be five days out of seven including some weekend work.

To apply: please send a full CV and cover letter, stating the post applied for to: Jane Hopper, Head of veterinary services, Port Lympne Wild Animal Park, Aldington Road, Nr Hythe, Kent. CT21 4PD.
