Work experience

If you are looking for work experience, Living Coasts offers a limited number of placements in our keeper department. Please read below to see if you are eligible for a place.

We have many applications for work experience and only a limited number of hours available to accommodate students at this site and have the following policy in place:

  • We can only take students over the age of 16 years (over 18 with keepers department).
  • All students must send in a CV and covering letter explaining what type of work experience is required and the dates/days available.
  • All students must be studying on an animal related course.
  • All students must provide a reference from their place of study.
  • The placements will then be awarded based on date availability and suitability of the candidate.
  • Minimum of 2 week placement or required amount of hours in relation to the course, this is more beneficial for students and staff.

Please send all work experience enquiries to the following address:
