We are currently recruiting for a seasonal Animal Keeper to join the Carnivores department, working with wolves, bears, lions and tigers, to start in February through to November 2020.

Working as part of a close team you will be responsible for maintaining high standards of animal care and welfare. In addition, you will ensure safety standards are adhered to, including the associated risk assessments and protocols, whilst ensuring the best possible visitor experience is delivered.

You should have previous experience of working with Carnivores, or within a similar environment. A Zoo Animal Management qualification or equivalent is desirable. Driving is a fundamental requirement of the role, therefore a full current driving licence is essential.

Applicants will need to be flexible as regular weekend working is required to meet the needs of the business.
