Share the learning and the fun through the delivery of high quality learning programmes at Wellington Zoo.
Wellington Zoo is a magical place of learning and fun, leaving visitors with a sense of wonder and respect for nature, and a belief in the need for a sustainable co- existence between wildlife and people.
We are looking for Casual Educators to inspire children to make a personal connection with nature. The main role of a Casual Educator is supporting the delivery of our School Holiday Programme, but may also involve delivering formal LEOTC programmes to primary and secondary school students.
Working hours will be rostered within the holiday programmes, which run for two weeks between 8am and 4.30pm, Monday – Friday in the April, July, October and January school holidays. Work during the term will vary and be negotiated throughout the term between the Casual Educator and the Learning Team Manager.
Outdoor work is a major part of the job and a moderate level of fitness is required. Candidates must have the legal right to work in New Zealand and if selected for an interview they will be required to undergo a police background check and pre-employment drug and alcohol check.
Successful candidates will have a proven interest in conservation and wildlife, strong inter-personal skills, be customer focussed and love working with children. Ideally they will have relevant experience from working with children in schools or recognised PTE, museums, zoos or similar educational facilities. Training will be provided for successful candidates.

or post to Casual Educator Vacancy, c/- Wellington Zoo Trust, 200 Daniell Street, Newtown, Wellington 6021.
