Experienced Small Animal Keeper/Falconer

Part Time

Wild Discovery is a small and relatively new zoo that is growing rapidly, with many new and exciting developments taking place this year including the introduction of a falconry display. We are therefore looking for enthusiastic and passionate experienced keeper to join our team on a part time basis.
 
The successful candidate will have at least 2 years zoo experience caring for a wide range of small animals across all taxa, delivering the highest standard of welfare and husbandry.  Falconry experience would be advantageous, however full training will be provided.  The role will also include the delivery of public talks, animal encounters and experiences and educational visits. 
 
This is a part time position working a minimum of 3 days per week, potentially increasing to 5 days during peak seasons. The role will cover both weekdays and weekends, and in some cases evening hours, therefore flexibility is essential. 

Main duties include:
Delivering high levels of welfare and husbandry for all animals in the collection.
Building and creating enrichment activities.
Delivering educational talks and activities to visitors through our daily talk schedule.
Delivering animal encounters, zoo keeper experiences and hosting birthday parties.
Supporting the Education Officer with the delivery of educational workshops to school and group visits.
