WWT London Wetland Centre is looking for a proactive individual to join our Living Collections Team.  You will have a keen interest in birds and animals with hands-on experience of their care, and will play a key part in engaging visitors in our collection species, and WWT’s wider conservation work, through the delivery of walks and talks. 

This is a broad and varied position, and the delivery and maintenance of a high standard of presentation and hygiene throughout all the Grounds areas, in addition to the animal collection, are an essential part of the role. Duties will include the daily feeding, husbandry and welfare of the living collection, including enclosure maintenance.

Ideally you already hold, or are working towards, a recognised qualification in animal management and some experience of mustelids, especially otters, would be an advantage. 

The Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust (WWT) is a conservation charity that protects wetlands for wildlife and people. We conserve, restore and create wetlands. We are pioneers in saving wetland wildlife, both in the UK and around the world. At our 10 UK sites over a million visitors a year engage with wetland nature. We work internationally in key global wetland areas, balancing conservation with sustainable livelihoods and influencing national and international conservation policies.

In return for your hard work and dedication, you will enjoy a wide range of benefits including:

  • 25 days annual leave plus bank holidays increasing to 30 days after 5 years’ service
  • Contributory pension scheme (conditions apply)
  • Life assurance
  • Free car parking and secure bike storage areas
  • Cycle to work scheme
  • Free entry to all our centres
