Marine Mammal Work Experience...

Hours: Work Experience is available on a part time or full time basis, up to a maximum of 4 weeks/20 placement days. PLEASE NOTE: We get fully booked a long way in advance, when filling in your application make sure you let us know of any dates you are available.


Description: The marine mammal department covers the seal section within the centre. We currently have two species of seals, Harbour seals and South African Fur Seals.
Work experience within the Marine Mammal Department will allow you to assist in the day to day running of a public aquarium and will give you an insight into what it is like to work with marine mammals. As well as maintaining the high standards required the marine mammal department also carries out education talks and demonstrations for the guests.
If you have an interest in working with marine mammals this placement could be very interesting for you. If you are specifically interested in working with fish or certain terrestrial species then this placement may not be best suited and we would advise you apply for Displays work experience or the Combined work experience when they are advertised.
PLEASE NOTE: Work experience placements give a glimpse into a role type and will allow you to shadow various job roles within a department, but they do not include full training or qualifications. If you are looking for a more in depth experience with training and hands on opportunities, please see our available internship or apprenticeship schemes.
