Deputy Team Manager (Great Apes collection)
Twycross Zoo is an award-winning conservation and science-led zoo in the heart of England. This year we are celebrating our 60th birthday! We are rapidly growing and welcoming over 600,000 people every year to our 100-acre rural site near Atherstone.
We are home to 500 animals, including one of the largest chimpanzee families in the UK, and our primate collection is up there with the best in the world. We’re the only zoo in the UK to house all four great apes and we care for many other endangered species to the highest welfare standards including eastern black rhino, Sumatran tigers, Amur leopards and snow leopards.
In 2014, we launched our 20-year £55 million Masterplan. Since this time, new habitats include our Giraffe Savannah, Gibbon Forest and a £3.5 million world-class chimpanzee habitat, Chimpanzee Eden, and we are looking forward to building on this continued growth and success.
