Work Experience

Are you interested in a future career working with marine life? Why not come and gain some hands on experience at SEA LIFE Great Yarmouth!

 

We are now accepting applications for work experience with our animal care team. These placements would suit anyone who is looking to get into an animal care role, or who is on an animal management course.

Life at the aquarium is busy, ever changing and totally unpredictable. We can never guarantee what you will be doing on you work placement, however we will endeavour to give you as broad and interesting an experience as possible.  We will tailor each placement to meet your individual learning requirements.

Our aim is to ensure your placement is both completely flexible and totally beneficial to you – so whatever it is you want to gain experience in, just let us know! We will do everything we can to help you get the most from your time with us.

Volunteers will be required to work a minimum of 3 weeks, and due to the nature of the work involved we are unable to offer placements to anyone under the age of 18.
