Animal Keeper Internship

Are you an enthusiastic student of Animal Keeper or Animal Management and looking for a challenging internship? At Wisbroek we offer you the opportunity to do an internship among beautiful and diverse bird species in our R&D Center.

What does the job involve?

As an animal keeper intern you will have the opportunity to work with our experienced animal keepers. You get up early to start your day at 7:00 am, because our feathered friends are also active early. Your work will be completed around 4:00 PM. Of course, it is always possible that some work remains unfinished. We then ask for some flexibility from you with regard to the end time of your working day.

During your internship you will perform tasks such as preparing and providing feed, observing birds, furnishing and cleaning enclosures, and caring for young birds during the breeding season.

In addition to these daily activities, we also offer you the space to work on school assignments and develop yourself personally.

When do we have internships available?

In principle, we have room for internships all year round. There is of course the most work to be done before and during the breeding season, in the period from March to October, but every period is negotiable.

Who are you?

You are following a training course in animal care at MBO level 2, 3, 4 or HBO animal management. For us it is an advantage if you have an affinity or experience with birds. If you have a love for birds, it is of course great to be able to work with these beautiful animals during your internship.

How can you apply for an internship?

If all this appeals to you and you can already see yourself in an internship among the birds of Wisbroek, please submit your application via the form below. We prefer to receive applications at least 3 months before the start of the internship period. Since we only have a limited number of places available, we will select candidates who best match our requirements for multiple applications. Address your application letter to Tom Moonen, R&D Center Coordinator.
