Closing date 31st August 2022
We are looking for an experienced Curator to lead our dedicated and motivated animal care team at Skegness Aquarium.
Skegness Aquarium is a family run business and as such, the Curator will always have the support from the General Manager to allow animal welfare to be at the heart of decision making.
The Curator role is a fundamental part of the attraction’s senior management team and assumes leadership for our talented animal care team with support from two Senior Aquarists. We are looking for someone with the right balance of animal and people skills to lead and inspire our team of aquarists. They will also be responsible for maintaining and developing a variety of exhibits and their life support systems which are home to a wide range of marine vertebrates, as well as reptiles, amphibians and invertebrates.
The right candidate, with industry experience, will provide a strategic oversight to maintain the highest animal welfare and husbandry standards, while continuing to drive the aquarium to meet and exceed our ambitious goals. You will also need to have a comprehensive understanding of the UK zoo licensing process and regulations; our next renewal is due in 2025 and our current license has no additional conditions or directions.
