We offer a range of seasonal, fixed term and permanent jobs as well as work experience placements and volunteering roles. Explore the opportunities below to find the perfect one for you!

Please Note: When applying for any of our vacancies you will be directed to the West Midland Safari Park website to create an Application Account. See below for further details.


SEASONAL

Seasonal jobs are a great way to start your career.

We have a variety of seasonal vacancies available every year, including Assistant and Supervisory roles, many of which include flexible working hours.

Current seasonal job vacancies:

None at present.

FIXED TERM

These salary based jobs are a great way to get more experience and are often based on 50 or 100 weeks dependent on the role.

Although these positions become available less frequently than seasonal vacancies, there are a variety of fixed term jobs available.

Current fixed term job vacancies:

None at present.

PERMANENT

Salary based permanent positions are highly sought after within the Leisure Industry.
We look forward to welcoming more experienced candidates through this recruitment process.

Current permanent job vacancies:

None at present.

We provide work experience placements throughout a variety of Departments including Animal Care, Retail, Food and Beverages and Learning to name a few!

These placements are designed to give you an idea of what it is like to work in that particular role. They do not include formal training and there will be limited areas which you will be permitted to help out in, but they are a fantastic way to have a glimpse into a particular job.

Due to the amount of applications for Work Experience we may sometimes be fully booked up to 12 months in advance for some roles, therefore we suggest you apply as soon as possible once you know the dates you are looking for.

Anyone who is of compulsory school age, or is studying a UK based further or higher education course can apply for a Work Experience placement, although age restrictions may apply to certain roles. Due to the high volume of applications, applicants studying subjects most closely related to the work experience role will be prioritised.

To give you as much experience as possible, all placements must be applied for online in the same way as our job vacancies. Short listed applicants will be invited in for an interview to discuss what they are looking for from their placement. Due to the amount of applicants we can not guarentee an interview or placement for everyone and will prioritise the individuals who will benefit the most out of the placement, so make sure you tell us why we should pick you when filling in your application form!

Current Work Experience roles available for application:


Displays Work Experience (Closes: Sun 31 Dec 2017)
Marine Mammal Work Experience (Closes: Sun 31 Dec 2017)

If you would like to take up a new interest, meet new people, make our guests smile and support wildlife conservation education, then come and be part of our growing volunteer team at SeaQuarium.

Volunteers do not take the place of paid staff, but they make an important contribution to helping enhance the guest experience and support the staffing team. Volunteers act as an ambassador to SeaQuarium and can help the guests gain a greater understanding of the issues surrounding wildlife conservation and what SeaQuarium and the guests can do to help animals in the wild, in addition to providing fantastic customer service.

Volunteer roles are unpaid and do not include any expenses, so individuals will be required to cover their own travel costs. Please take this into account before registering interest.

When you volunteer at SeaQuarium we hope you’ll have great fun and enjoy meeting new people. You’ll also feel good knowing your time is being well spent helping an important cause. By becoming a volunteer you can learn new skills and knowledge, and pass this knowledge onto our guests, enhancing their experience.

Due to the time involved in meeting potential volunteers, we do look for a certain level of commitment. Volunteers are asked to support SeaQuarium every week on a regular day within a specific Volunteering role.

Due to the limited number of opportunities we endeavour to find people who are most suited to each volunteering role, based on the information provided when you register interest. If you are shortlisted after registering interest we will invite you in for an informal discussion before confirming whether we are able to offer you a place within a suitable volunteering role.

Due to the amount of people who would like to volunteer with us, we can not guarentee an informal discussion or volunteer role for everyone and will prioritise the individuals who suit the roles and will benefit most out of the experience, so make sure you tell us as much as possible about you when filling in your 'Register Interest' form!

PLEASE NOTE: Volunteers do not have hands-on contact with the animals, unless stated in the specific volunteer role description.
