UK Zoo Salaries

 


UK Zoo Salaries


From June to October 2021 (inc) there were 115 UK and Ireland zoo related

vacancies advertised on Zoo Jobs.

Of these only 27 indicated salary. Most stated “As per qualifications and experience or Competitive salary.”

Most indicated hours to be worked which varied from 37.5 to 43 hours a week


Although I fully appreciate that all zoos are different as are job titles and that duties

and responsibilities vary, the list below should give you a good indication of the salary

Final Note:

When I started my zoo career back in 1967 my weekly wage was around £9.00

for a basic 6 day 48 hour working week. I was never paid overtime but worked

60+ hours a week more often than not. I loved the work and still do. Zoo work

has never been about salary...but we all need money to get by...don’t we ?

Because of Covid and travel restrictions I have been without any salary for

two years now, Times are hard... for us all.
