Work experience placements with the Animal Management Department
Animal Keeping is a demanding but rewarding career. Work experience placements with the animal management department at Banham Zoo are available to students who are currently studying at Lvl 3 National Diploma in an animal related course, A levels or higher and aged 16 years or over.
Students interested in a placement with the Animal Management Department must demonstrate a keen sense of enthusiasm and commitment and be prepared to work hard in all weather conditions. We expect students to attend every day of their placement and complete a full day’s work, cleaning animal enclosures and preparing animal diets under the supervision of a keeper.
Placements can be either block release, Monday to Friday, for a minimum of two weeks or day release, Saturdays or Sundays, for a minimum of ten consecutive days.

To secure a booking, students must have completed and returned student and college forms and paid a non-refundable administration fee of £125.00.
