Role overview:

We plan to deliver our largest conservation awareness and fundraising campaign to date: CoExistence. The campaign will feature a 100 strong herd of life-sized elephant sculptures migrating from the jungles of India, where they have been created, to the Royal Parks in London. Alongside this campaign the flagship event that we are renowned for, The Animal Ball, will take place in July 2021.

Ideally, you will have a valid security industry license or accepted certificate of security competence and should be available to be an on-ground support at the Royal Parks for the duration of the time that the exhibition is live in London.
