They say never work with children or animals. Well, here you can do both!

The schools programme team is the learning hub for the Zoo, providing a range of leading programmes to schools and community visiting groups.

You'll design, plan and deliver learning programmes to predominantly primary-aged children visiting Auckland Zoo. Using your knowledge of the New Zealand primary school curriculum, you'll be responsible for everything from programme planning and development to delivery. 

As a member of a dynamic team, you will also contribute to our growing range of zoo-wide learning programmes, and your teaching skills, creative flair, and passion for wildlife conservation will be essential. You will be working in tandem with one of our permanent Zoo educators and also providing cover and support for the wider team as required.

You will bring with you a minimum of 3 years' current/recent New Zealand teaching experience, with experience in science, biology, environmental or conservation education being preferable, as would holding a NZ teacher's registration.

Your knowledge of the NZ primary school curriculum, along with your excellent communication skills, will see you excel in this role.

Any experience or knowledge of te reo and tikanga Māori would be highly advantageous.

You will join a highly successful team and be able to combine your experience and skills in teaching, with your passion for conservation and wildlife.

This position is full-time, working 40 hours across Monday to Friday.
