Admissions Assistant – Permanent contract with full and part time positions
Our working environment could not be more different from your usual setting – where else could you stroll among rare giraffes and tigers on your lunch break?
The Role – Admissions Assistant
We have a number of exciting opportunities for friendly, confident and passionate individuals to join our busy Admissions team and support us in our delivery of a world class visitor experience.
An Admissions Assistant is often the first person our visitors come into contact with at the Zoo; whether that be on the day at our admission lanes and tills, welcoming visitors on the microphone, or by answering their email enquiries and phone calls pre/post visit. You will also be involved in the sale and delivery of commercial products and services. This will include working during Zoo events such as The Lanterns. The role involves some cleaning duties.

We’re an inclusive and diverse organisation, made up of nearly 500 permanent and 500 seasonal team members, and we know how important it is to invest in our colleagues to help boost their career development.
