Seagull Deterrent/Visitor Services Assistant

At Blackpool Zoo it goes without saying that we love all animals! And as a seaside resort, Blackpool is not short of seagulls. However, the seagulls are proving to be a bit of a nuisance when it comes to trying to steal food from our visitors and our animal enclosures!

We need to do what we can to keep the seagulls away from our main visitor dining areas, which is why we are looking for a team of people to join our Visitor Services team as ‘Seagull Deterrents’

We are looking for people that are:

  • Visitor Focused
  • Friendly
  • Energetic
  • Flexible
  • Outgoing – as you need to be comfortable wearing a bird costume!

This role will be offered with variable seasonal hours.

Closing date: 1st May 2023.
