Join our vibrant organisation!

As an action oriented conservation charity, Marwell Wildlife’s desire is to connect people with nature. Through enthusing people about the wonders of the natural world we’re certain they’ll share our passion to conserve it. Our success relies on two key things. The impression we create through our 140 acre zoological park, Marwell Zoo, with its wide array of exotic and endangered species and the family of talented people we employ who share our passion and bring our vision to life. 

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an Animal Keeper to join our Herpetology Team on a full time basis. We are seeking a person who shares our passion for delivering naturalistic exhibits that focus on animal welfare and guest experience. Following the 2018 opening of our tropical house, Energy for Life, there are plans to develop other areas of the collection. This is a great time to join a forward thinking and progressive team.

The Animal Keeper role is responsible for carrying out all aspects of animal care, including husbandry routines, environmental management, and supporting veterinary intervention and managerial operations as required.

The successful candidate will have a background in reptile, amphibian, fish and invertebrate species husbandry. You will be able to work well as part of a team, have the ability to use your initiative and possess strong communication skills. Creative and holistic thought processes are essential. 

In return we will offer you support, training and continued professional development, not to mention a fantastic working environment!

If you would like to join our unique and vibrant organisation and become part of our Marwell Family, please view the full candidate brief and complete our application form. This application form must be completed for you to be considered for this role.
