A whole day program for individual students interested in an animal-based career

If your school has Year 10, 11 or 12 students who are passionate about wildlife and interested in a career with animals and conservation, tell them about our next Career Awareness Day.  This special day gives students a chance to learn all about how they might become part of the zoo team one day.  It’s a great chance to meet staff from a range of careers at the zoo – from animal and plant care to administration and management.  Hear about how our staff became part of the zoo team and learn how to get that competitive edge to land a dream job!

Things to consider:

Students are responsible for gaining permission to attend the Career Awareness days with their individual schools and parents/guardians.

Teachers or other staff do not attend these programs so students are also responsible for arranging their own transport.
