We have exciting plans for developing the Zoo further, continuing our work in the management and conservation of endangered species.
We are going through an exciting period of change as this zoo develops and so are looking for dynamic, knowledgeable individuals to help lead the teams forward.

We are seeking an enthusiastic, motivated individual with an interest in zoo animal management. You must be committed to continued professional development and be a good team worker.

The contract is on a temporary basis (duration of 3 to 6 months) working full time, including weekend duties on a rota system. Salary is paid monthly and we provide uniform and 31 days holidays per annum.
