Work Experience

We are unable to support work experience in any department due to our health and safety policies.

Animal-based placements

We do not have any work experience placements available as we are unable to support these within the animal teams.

You may benefit from a volunteer role as these will give you a valuable experience around site. These are designed for people who are local and can commit to a regular day of the week throughout the year. Our volunteer roles are for those age 18 or over and none of our roles are with the animals although some do prepare items to support our keeper team. Please see the volunteer roles available here. These are constantly changing depending on availability.
