How would you like to work on the historic Trentham Estate in the only place in the UK you can walk amongst free-roaming Barbary macaque monkeys?

We are looking for confident, friendly, customer focused ‘Park Guides‘ to join our exceptional team.

The detail…

You will work in close proximity to the 140 wild-living Barbary macaque monkeys, helping to monitor their welfare by ensuring our guests are closely following the park rules. Confidence in your public speaking ability is a must as you will deliver feeding talks to large excited audiences.

So, if you’re a brilliant team player with a love of primates and nature, keen to help us maintain our exceptional level of customer service, we want to hear from you.

All training will be given on site.

Working on a rota basis, you will work roughly 30 hours/week during school holidays and 6-14 hours during weekends in term-times.

All positions are seasonal up until the end of October. You will need to be available to work weekends, school holidays and bank holidays.

If you have not heard within 2 weeks of your application I am afraid you have been unsuccessful.
