Main Responsibilities

You will drive forward the Bristol Zoological Society’s Environmental Sustainability Programme for our transition to the new Bristol Zoo site in 2024.

You will contribute to making us a leader in zoo sustainability, as an integral part of our strategic plan to put sustainability at the heart of our operations.

You will be responsible for influencing the conservationists of the future through our HE Teaching and Supervision: the successful applicant will lead undergraduate modules and supervise student research projects.

There may be occasions when the post holder is requested to work in other Society locations, or carry out other duties considered reasonable by the Society or its representatives.

The Bristol Zoological Society (BZS) is a conservation charity that works in 10 countries around the world and runs two zoos and several Higher Education programmes in partnership with university/college institutions. We are looking for a dynamic and experienced individual to join our team with broad knowledge, experience and/or understanding of measuring emissions/resource use/ knowledge of environmental mitigation. Experience in relevant research methods (e.g., environmental sustainability data modelling) and application of those methods is desirable. Your role will be crucial in helping us complete our mission of saving wildlife together, becoming a beacon of sustainability, and delivering excellent Higher Education programmes.

Please review the Vacancy information and Job Description/Person Specification on the zoo website for more information.

If you are passionate about sustainability, have the determination to drive forward change, combined with excellent project management and communication skills, we want to hear from you.
