Animal Keeper - Paulton's Park

Sparsholt was the ideal place for me to jump back into education and I would recommend it to anybody! It’s been a whirlwind as I started working as an animal keeper at Paultons Park a week after my exams finished. I am working hard to learn all I can to become a really good keeper and feel like I have found the job satisfaction I craved before joining Sparsholt.
