Join our friendly team on a casual basis and help out in retail, catering and admissions or apply to work with our animals on a permanent basis in Sussex.
We employ staff on a casual basis to work throughout our busy periods; primarily weekends, bank holidays and school holidays with the possibility of some additional work mid-week through the summer months. We look to take on Team Assistants to help out in retail, catering, admissions and attractions operation. None of these roles have any involvement with the animals.
Recruitment campaigns take place in the early part of each year to enable us to be fully staffed and ready to go for the main busy season.
Permanent roles and other casual roles that may become vacant throughout the year will be listed below.
