Reviews for Assistant at South African National Parks
High level of professionalism and specialized job
Waking up very early in the morning, mostly between 4 and 5 AM. I have obtained valuable knowledge about the capture and handling of wild animals as well as management of animals. I have also learnt how to manage time effectively. The management is very excellent and everything is well organized. The co-workers are highly experienced and self-motivated. Everyone knows what to do without any interference of a supervisor. The job is a high risk career and danger can arise from any moment. I enjoy when the capture operations go successfully and all animals are safe. I also enjoy travelling inside Kruger National Park in search of animals during a capture operation. I can say that game capture is the best job ever in conservation.
Exposure to dangerous wild animals which are normally seen on television
Extended hours and physically demanding

Motivational, productive and fun place
My employer has taught me to work independently and be a confident decision maker. I have also learnt that one learns through showing their enthusiasm to achieve a goal irregardless that the duty is not within their job decription. Going the extra mile is the culture of the office that i work in and my co workers will assist anyone who is eager to learn. The most challenging part of my job is when I have to co-ordinate events that would involve senior management, external stakeholders and dignitaries as these need a lot of paying attention to and I do enjoy watching the end result on the day of the event and when the event has come and gone successfully.
14 days free holiday accomoation, laptop & cellphone allowance
working within strict budgets, having to be available on short notice for the park over weekends and holidays;
