We are rapidly growing and, pre-Covid, were welcoming over 600,000 people every year to our 100-acre rural site near Atherstone.

The Role – Cleaner

As a Cleaner, you’ll be part of a small team responsible for undertaking cleaning across the Zoo premises including all visitor areas around the Zoo. You’ll work across a large area of the Zoo spanning outdoor areas and facilities in all weather conditions and your duties will include:

  • Litter picking and emptying bins throughout the site
  • Conducting stock counts of cleaning supplies
  • Assisting with Waste Management duties when required

The Package – Cleaner

  • Pay rate in line with national minimum / living wage rates
  • Staff membership card giving you free entry to the Zoo on your days off

  • Enthusiastic with a great work ethic
  • Excellent customer service skills with a polite, friendly, and helpful attitude
