Cleaner, National Aquarium of New Zealand


Reference: 4812824

Casual position working as and when required (Monday to Sunday including Public Holidays).

Located in Napier, the National Aquarium is a unique, exciting and dynamic facility focused on all things aquatic. Owned by the people of Napier and Napier City Council, the aquarium attracts 150,000 visitors each year and offers a wide range of experiences from diving displays and keeper talks, to getting up close and personal with little penguins. Its centrepiece exhibit is the stunning 1.5 million litre Oceanarium with a 50m-long viewing tunnel. It is home to a diverse collection of saltwater, freshwater and land animal exhibits from New Zealand and around the world.

We're looking for an experienced Cleaner to help keep our Aquarium pristine for visitors. Ideally you will be able to start work immediately, and be flexible to work shifts as they arise. The Aquarium is a unique place to work - where else can you clean the outside of shark tanks, meet the world's naughtiest penguin and keep an eye on our wonderful native kiwi?

Preferably you'll have experience working in a commercial setting and have worked with industrial cleaning equipment and chemicals. The ability to follow instructions, work methodically and unsupervised are some of the qualities we need. Some lifting may be involved from time to time and you'll need a good level of fitness.
