This would be an amazing job for any animal lover, but we have to ask what is wrong with this job? We've noticed this is not the first time in the last year that this position has been open but the third! 

Are the giraffes mean? 

"We currently have an exciting opportunity for a Keeper to join our hoof stock sections. For the right candidate, this post offers a fantastic opportunity to work with a wide variety of mammal species ranging from Black and Greater One Horned Rhinos, Giraffes as well as Grevy's Zebra, Onager and a range of Bovid's, Deer and Antelope."

Who knows but if you'd like to apply for this job, you'll need;

 

  • A HND or degree level qualification in a zoological related science or equivalent experience
  • Proven experience in the care and management of a variety of large mammal species in a zoo or safari park setting, including rhinos, as well as the highest standards of exhibitry
  • Outstanding observational skills with excellent attention to detail
  • Experience of operant conditioning and implementing environmental enrichment
  • Experience of working within strict Safe Working Practices
  • A full driving license valid in the UK

You can apply here.
