Job Postings

Work with the Jackson Zoo

Unfortunately, there are no current open positions with the Jackson Zoological Society. There are all sorts of jobs at the Jackson Zoo, from keepers to cafe, educators to events. Our team of dedicated staff help the Zoo reach its mission to provide quality recreational and educational experiences dedicated to wildlife care and conservation. If you share our core values and are passionate about wildlife and wild places, please continue to check back with us for future opportunities. 





There are many areas of the zoo where volunteers are needed: landscaping, facilities, education, special events, and Discovery Zoo. Although most often people think of spring and summer volunteering, there are some opportunities throughout the year. (There are even a few paid internships available for qualified candidates through the MS Department of Employment Security.)

Please visit our Volunteer page and fill out the application.


The Jackson Zoological Society, Inc., is a 501c3 not-for-profit entity, and an equal opportunity employer.
