The National Marine Aquarium in Plymouth is looking for suitably qualified divers to help manage the tanks.

The creatures in its Eddystone exhibit are a demandingly selfish bunch.

They require feeding on a regular basis, one of the main tasks undertaken by volunteer aquarists (waterborne zookeepers.)

If you sign up, you’ll also be charged with keeping the large tanks cleaned.

Divers will need to have an HSE Part IV cert, an up-to-date medical and be trained with O2 admin and First Aid.

The aquarium, which is also a charity, requires help on weekdays and weekends. It’s an intense role, so only apply if you can find time in your schedule.

To find out more, drop the National Marine Aquarium an email at nmadiving@national-aquarium.co.uk
