We are looking to recruit an Animal Department Manager within the next few months in time for the major expansion of the zoo.
Ideally you should have worked with a broad variety of animal species and have at least 8 years experience in a position of practical and organisational responsibility within a Zoo or Safari Park.
We are not looking for an academic who has just left university so please do not apply unless you have the work experience as we require a practical person who understands the day to day operations of a busy zoo and a very diverse collection of animals. Qualifications are not important to us but a proven track record of good husbandry is.
You will be responsible for 15 full animal Carers and approximately 10 part time or apprentices and the welfare of all the animals on site.
To be successful in this role you will be able to work to strict quality and regulatory deadlines.
You will take ownership of this role and will be passionate and enthusiastic to work for a rapidly expanding Company with over 300,000 visitors per annum and expansion to 3 times its existing size.
