TY WORK EXPERIENCE

INTERESTED IN MARINE SCIENCE?

CURIOUS ABOUT THE ATTRACTIONS INDUSTRY?

If so, working in the Public Aquarium sector might be a career choice worth considering.  To find out if this is for you, why not apply to participate in the SEA LIFE Bray TY Work Experience program?

If successful in your application (bearing in mind that we only have 14 placements on offer in any given school year), you will be working with both the public and our animals in a busy environment.  Here you will experience many aspects of the running of a Public Aquarium.  This will range from handling animals, cleaning and maintenance of tanks and Quarantine, merchandising the gift shop, providing assistance and information to visitors, to general tasks around the aquarium.  Remember that you will be working in a public environment, so you will have to come to work with a smile, have a neat appearance and be ready to answer questions from the visitors (after training!).

Still interested?  Well, if you are an enthusiastic, confident and hardworking person with a passion for all things in the ocean, we would love you to apply to do work experience with us by:

a.      Downloading our application form here. Applications now closed (as of 05/09/18).

b.      Completing in fully (electronically or by hand)

c.      Returning the form to us at slcbray@merlinentertainments.biz

Please note that not all applications will be successful, as demand far outstrips supply!
