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.

In early January we start our main recruitment campaign to 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.

Our recruitment campaign begins at the very start of each year to enable us to be fully staffed and ready for our first two busy periods, the February and Easter holidays.

Permanent roles and other casual roles that may become vacant throughout the year will be listed below.


We are currently looking for volunteers to supervise our walk-through enclosures; Lemurland, Lory Landing and our bats and sloths as well as our touch tables of animal artefacts. Minimum age 16, must be confident at speaking to the public. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer please email [email protected]
