Welcome to our wild party! Join Wellington Zoo on our journey to igniting a zoo revolution.  We have a fabulous opportunity for someone to join our Communications, Engagement and Conservation team as a Visitor Ranger.

We are looking for someone who can work Friday through to Mondays to engage visitors with their infectious energy, drive and enthusiasm to help deliver high quality visitor learning programmes. 

The successful candidate will be employed part time on a 6 month fixed term basis.

Are you someone who:

  • Available to work Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays, and Mondays
  • Loves working with people
  • Has a strong customer focus and open, friendly, and curious
  • Thrives on being creative and enthusiastic
  • Reliability and demonstrates excellent organisational skills
  • Is proactive and motivated
  • Has previous experience working in a visitor attraction or education facility
  • Is interested in the fields of learning and interpretation
  • Has a passion for conservation and sustainability

You will be comfortable handling animals, speaking in front of large crowds is a breeze, and you can wow people with your fantastic communication and interpersonal skills. Outdoor work is a major part of the job and a moderate level of fitness is required. This is a job where you will be working weekends, overnight (in negotiation) and some statutory holidays - as this is when the Zoo is brimming with visitors, fun, and excitement!

Candidates must have the legal right to work in New Zealand, and if selected will be required to undergo a police background check and pre-employment drug and alcohol check.
