Over 100 Yorkshire Jobs Unleashed At Doncaster Wildlife Park

Yorkshire Wildlife Park, a visitor attraction in Doncaster, is expanding and will create over 100 new holiday jobs in Yorkshire.

There will be a mix of positions available - retail jobs and catering vacancies as well as positions for people to work with the animals at the Yorkshire park. In total, 113 temporary jobs are up for grabs and the new recruits will work from March through October this year.

Cheryl Williams, director of Yorkshire Wildlife Park revealed that over 400,000 people visited their attraction last year - and she anticipates even more visitors in 2014 as their latest potential lodger Yupi, what would be the UK’s only polar bear, hopes to move into her new home in Doncaster in the next few months.

The park has grown its visitor base by over 500 per cent in the five seasons since it first opened its gates to the public in 2009, and has ambitious plans for the future.

Touching on the variety of different seasonal jobs on offer at the park for 2014, Ms Williams said: “Most people just think about working with animals, which is a highly specialised area of work, but in fact there are seasonal posts in many different areas. We have never had so many positions on offer. It means in the summer for the first time we will have 200 staff working for us.”

Some of the customer service, catering and retail jobs on offer at Yorkshire Wildlife Park this year include vacancies for merchandisers, chefs, visitor service assistants, kitchen assistants, education assistants and leisure assistants.

“With all our plans for 2014 there is no doubt we need extra staff. We are delighted to be in a position to be recruiting staff and supporting our local community,” added Ms Williams.
