Careers at the Zoo: Secondary School

Secondary teachers can bring their class to Adelaide Zoo during Careers Week to learn about training pathways for different jobs, in the Zoo and animal industry.

Zoos SA employs almost 200 people to undertake a broad range of jobs that are critical to the successful running of a complex, medium sized business. Jobs range from animal keepers, trades, horticulture, education, finance, veterinary science and nursing, human resources, retail, hospitality, marketing, public relations and management.

This session covers training and other learning pathways for various jobs, work experience and common behavioural expectations within the work place.
