What a place to call the office.
Just 23 minutes outside Cork City Centre, Fota Wildlife Park is seeking two new rangers to join their team in 2024.
If spending your days surrounded by cheeky lemurs, majestic giraffes, and mischievous meerkats sounds like a dream role and you’ve got the hefty set of qualifications they require, the park is recruiting for a Senior Ranger and a Ranger.
“An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Senior Ranger within the Hoofstock Section at Fota Wildlife Park. This position will work with the Lead Rangers, Rangers, and Trainee Rangers and reports to the Lead Ranger.” the job advertisement explains.
“The Senior Ranger assists the Lead Ranger with the leadership of the animal care staff and others in the assigned areas on a daily basis to maximise safety, improve animal welfare, and promote a positive work environment.

The second Ranger will also work on the Hoofstock Section, assisting the Lead Ranger and Senior Ranger.
Both the roles available require substantial experience in zoological animal management, with at least seven years of relevant experience in a BIAZA/EAZA accredited or equivalent facility.
If that sounds like you, you can apply here before January 26th.
