2019 Placements are almost FULL. Applications for 2020 will open in January 2020.
Early morning starts, working outside in rainy weather and picking up animal poo is not everyone’s cup of tea but if we haven’t managed to turn your mind off working in the zoological industry, then conducting work placement at Featherdale is one of the best opportunities school students have of determining whether their chosen career path is one they wish to pursue.
Featherdale runs a Work Placement Program that provides a space for students studying in year 10 and 11. Work placement consists of a 5 day block week where you get the opportunity to learn what it’s really like to lead the life of a zoo keeper. Business and Tourism students are also welcome to conduct work placement in Featherdale’s retail and administration departments.
To organise your work placement at Featherdale, please email Penrith Schools Industry Network on firstname.lastname@example.org.
*Please note that spaces are limited fill very quickly.
