Seasonal First Aid Officer

Fixed term - 7 months

We are Chester Zoo, and for over 80 years we've been a leading conservation and education charity, and an amazing, award-winning visitor attraction.

We're also a team of passionate, talented, enthusiastic and expert people, doing everything we can to keep the zoo going, from feeding the animals to discovering new conservation ideas, and giving our 1.9 million visitors an inspirational day out.

We work hard because we love animals, we care about nature, we love Chester Zoo and we want to be the best zoo in the world!

If you think you can help us to achieve that, then we'd love to hear from you.

We currently have a vacancy for a Seasonal First Aid Officer to join the award winning First Aid team. Part of the Health & Safety department, the successful candidate will assist in the provision of a high quality first aid service for a large and busy site.

The role involves working outside for most of the day in all weathers, walking around the site on patrols and responding on foot to emergencies, and carrying emergency first aid kits and equipment with you at all times.

The successful candidate must have:

  • Practical experience in administering first aid and preferably have a current, or will have previously held, a recognised First Aid qualification
  • Excellent customer care skills.
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills.
  • An ability to keep calm and make decisions in a pressured situation.
  • An ability to prioritise, plan and organise day to day tasks to ensure efficient running of the first aid service.

Hours will be a minimum of 6.5 hours per week although this will vary according to the time of the year and could increase to 40 hours per week at our busiest times. You will work between 1 and 5 days out of 7 which will include weekend and Bank Holiday working so the availability and flexibility to accommodate this is essential.

The rate of pay for this role is £7.90 per hour and in addition we offer a range of amazing benefits which can be found on the Chester Zoo careers page.

Due to the nature of the organisation and the role, this post is subject to a DBS check.
