Become one of the team
With over 1,000 animals and 400,000 visitors a year to look after, the task of running Howletts & Port Lympne Wild Animal Parks in Kent can be a complex and challenging job.
The parks provide jobs for over 550 members of staff, plus approximately 100 additional seasonal staff every year, with skills ranging from animal welfare and management, to presenting, gardening, catering, finance, HR, marketing, horticulture, retail, housekeeping, safari rangers and drivers.
We’re on a mission to create memorable experiences that matter, and our Core Values ‘One Team’, Customer’ and ‘Pride’ are what drive us each day to become part of something extraordinary. As well as walking to work surrounded by the calls of Howler monkeys and the roars from our pride of Lions, you will join a supportive team who are passionate about their place of work. Our staff are one of our most important assets and everyone plays a part in ensuring that animals and visitors are well looked after.
