Critter Squad Wildlife Defenders has been servicing Southern California for over 10 years and we are known for our exciting and educational animal outreach presentations. We participate in many public events, after school classes, private parties, classroom shows, and in-house programs throughout the year.
We have part-time “Educational Specialist” positions open for the 2019-2020 school year. Educational specialists are our most valued employees because they bring conservation, education, and appreciation directly to student’s classrooms. We have a wide variety of animals under our care at our facility that we incorporate into our classes.
This is a great position for anyone looking to build experience working with Prek to 6th grade students. As an Educational Specialist, you will also gain experience in basic animal care and handling as you work alongside staff to ensure the safety and well-being of our animals.
No experience? No problem! We welcome enthusiastic and motivated applicants who are eager and willing to gain experience. We pride ourselves on having a fun working environment and are looking for applicants who can be part of our team.
Room for growth exists in both our Zoo and Digital departments. Possibilities include further zookeeping work/experience, learning to handle more experienced animals, and helping to grow our digital resources of animal fact sheets, videos, activities, and more.
There is availability for weekday classes M-F as well as weekend events. We also have a travel system in place, in addition to the base pay, for costs spent driving to class.
Please send your resume and cover letter, including any relevant experience, as well as your availability.
