Senior Animal Keeper
Wild Life
Salary: Competitive
Job location: Whitsundays QLD, Australia
Are you passionate about Australian Animals and Conservation with a focus on FUN? How would you like to spend your day in one of Queensland’s iconic attractions and incredible tourist destinations? Are you ready to take the next step up in animal keeping and move to a leadership role?

We have a fantastic opportunity for a Senior Animal Keeper to join our fantastic team at WILD LIFE Hamilton Island. This is a permanent full time role.

About the Role
All of our roles are focused on ensuring we deliver the very best fun and memorable experiences to our guests in line with our Merlin values.

Working as the Senior Keeper you will lead our small and fabulous Animal Keeping team at WILD LIFE Hamilton Island. Through your leadership skills you will need to deliver the highest quality exhibits, animal husbandry & welfare and memorable guest experiences at all times. The role requires a versatile and hands on individual who can lead from the front and is prepared to get their hands dirty assisting the team with daily chores. It requires an individual who is capable and willing to work in a physically demanding environment and cope with the wonderful warmth and humidity only the beautiful tropics can offer!

About You
The ideal candidate for this role must have past experience in the husbandry of Australian wildlife, especially Koalas as well as an Animal husbandry Qualification such as a Certificate III in Captive Animal Management or the equivalent. Additionally a qualification and experience in Vet Nursing would be favourable given the remote aspect of our location. A sound modern approach to captive animal welfare and management is essential with a proven track record of good organizational skills, capable record keeping and basic administration skills. A full and valid manual driver’s license, a valid certificate in basic First Aid, a current QLD Blue Card for working with children and confirmation of Q-Fever vaccine is required.

We are looking for an individual with excellent public presentation skills and a confident knowledge of our amazing Australian fauna. Attention to detail such as animal health & welfare and staff/guest safety are strong prerequisites. Experience with the identification and collection of Koala Browse will be highly regarded.

About Us
We are Wildlife Hamilton Island a MERLIN ENTERTAINMENTS GROUP attraction. Merlin Entertainments is Europe’s Number 1 and the world’s second-largest visitor attraction operator. Merlin operates 106 attractions, eight hotels and three holiday villages in 23 countries and across four continents. We aim to deliver memorable and rewarding experiences to our 54 million visitors worldwide, through our iconic global and local brands, and the commitment and passion of our managers and more than 26,000 employees. Why do we do it? For the love of FUN!

Benefits
Living in the breath taking Whitsundays Islands of Tropical North Queensland waking to the calls of nature rather than the buzz of the city while earning a competitive wage, how good can it get!? Enjoy our amazing corporate partnership discounts, and of course, a Merlin Magic Pass, which entitles you and your family and friends free admission to all our attractions worldwide. Perhaps the biggest benefit of joining us however, are the invaluable opportunities for further career training and development across our ever-expanding group.

So if you are a team player who is vibrant and passionate and lives to deliver the best customer service while having fun we want to hear from you!
