Event description

Description

Are you interested in a career in conservation? Would you like to find out more about the work we do here at the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland? If so then save the date – 26th September 2019!

Every year we receive many requests from people interested in working here at Edinburgh Zoo, so this year we are launching a brand new Zoo Careers Day. This day is suitable for those at secondary school looking to make decisions about career paths, as well as tertiary students looking to find out more about the world of work. We will host representatives from all departments in the zoo, meaning you will find out about some of the less obvious roles within the zoo such as:

  • Human resources

  • Building maintenance, joiners, blacksmiths, painters and gardeners

  • Finance

  • Marketing, communication and membership

  • Retail

  • Events and hospitality

  • Education

  • IT

  • Fundraising

We will also provide an insight into:

  • The role of zookeepers

  • Veterinary staff

  • Geneticists

  • Field conservation work

Furthermore there will be information available from a host of colleges and universities highlighting routes into your chosen career.

Meet the people behind the roles at Edinburgh Zoo, ask the questions you always wanted to and start planning your career now.

The day will commence at 10:30am with short introductions from each of the departments, followed by time to browse the stalls (providing more information from each department) and further and higher education providers.

The rest of your day can be spent enjoying the many animals onsite and finding out more about our vital conservation work.

We welcome bookings from schools classes, tertiary groups and individuals.
