ZSL London Zoo, housed in Regent’s Park, is the oldest scientific zoo on the planet. Managed by the Zoological Society of London (ZSL) registered charity, London Zoo has been in existence in three different centuries (so far).
It is the mission of ZSL to promote and secure the worldwide conservation of animals and the habitats they live in.
We are noted for a number of “world firsts” in the zoological world, including opening the first public aquarium, the first reptile house and the first children’s zoo.
ZSL London Zoo has over 70 species of mammals, more than 100 species of bird and in excess of 200 species of fish. In total, ZSL London is host to more than 17,000 individual animals at any one time.
Under the ZSL umbrella, we also look after the even larger Whipsnade Zoo near Dunstable in Bedfordshire.
There are a number of opportunities for work and volunteering at London Zoo - and the jobs will be of particular interest to any students or graduates who would like to pursue a career in zoology or conservation work.
In addition to the many and varied full time and permanent ZSL London Zoo jobs on offer, we are also proud of the work experience and internship opportunities that we regularly advertise at Regent’s Park and our other ZSL locations around the world.
On the customer service side of ZSL London Zoo, we also look for friendly, flexible staff who like working with the animals known as human beings. We need enthusiastic individuals to make sure that all visitors to our zoo have a wonderful experience.
For that sort of seasonal work, we look for people at the start of every year who will join us from February right through until September - and part time positions are available for these seasonal sales assistants and team members.
If a you are interested in working around and with some of the most interesting and beautiful animals on the planet (like penguins, gorillas, tigers and giraffes, to name just a few) then why not see what we have on offer?
