From time to time, our members and associated conservation groups ask us to help them fill vacancies. Please note that the vacancies listed below are for specialist staff with a high level of experience and knowledge. If you are interested in working at a zoo, EAZA recommends volunteering opportunities at your local EAZA member as a first step to getting the skills you need.
Vacancies of EAZA Members as well as EAZA affiliated institutions are published online free of charge. Non-EAZA members and affiliated institutions are required to pay a vacancy placement fee. Information about fees and instructions on how to submit a vacancy can be found in Vacancy submission and pricing scheme.
Please contact Monica Szalma for vacancy placement.
