We currently have a full time vacancy for an outdoor groundskeeper / maintenance person.

 

This varied role involves working outdoors all day to keep our wildlife park in pristine condition.

The main duties involved in this role are:

  • Constant attention to gardens - weeding, pruning, raking etc.
  • Keeping our park clean and tidy at all times by way of clearing rubbish, cleaning out animal enclosures and paddocks.
  • Daily animal feeding shows and tour guiding groups of visitors around the park. Previous public speaking is not essential but you will require a fairly confident manner.
  • Predator control (clearing and setting traps).

This is an entry level position and you do not need experience in all areas listed as comprehensive on the job training will be provided. You will need to be fit and strong as this role can be physically demanding on a daily basis.
