You'RE THE ONE!
"In the end, its not the years in your life that matter, but the life in your years"

Wildlings is one of the first providers of environmental education and nature-themed services outside of the National Parks Service in Singapore. We operate our flag-ship programmes at our private nature space in Dempsey. We have hosted thousands of children and counting since opening in July 2020. We have ambitious plans to expand our programmes through 2023 and beyond, developing our programmes for schools, clubs, and our nature-themed events, workshops and birthday parties. We've been recognised for our work in the 2021, 2022, and 2023 Expat Living Reader's Choice Awards for our outdoor activities, enrichment programmes and camps.
We value nature itself and its contribution to our survival and wellbeing, meaningful time spent in the natural environment, the intrinsic connection between nature and people, the right of children to have a say in their own learning, and their right to play outside every single day.
Work with Wildlings is varied and rewarding. No day is ever the same and children and nature are a constant inspiration. Work is outdoors and active and suits the healthy and health-concious individual. We enjoy the perks of working on the Core Collective premises in Dempsey. Staff receive 20% off at Baker & Cook, and access to air conditioned changing rooms and warm showers, a novelty for those of us working outdoors! We are part of the Core Collective community and there are fitness, wellness and lifestyle providers onsite. We are a short walk from the bus stops along Holland Road, Napier MRT station is a 10 minute walk away and there is a shuttle bus which serves the Orchard area.
Dempsey has plenty of shops, cafes, bars and restaurants making it a very enjoyable location to work.
Staff enjoy a variety of benefits such as annual bonus and free Forest School for their children, as well as generous annual leave, unpaid leave options and flexible working arrangements for full time staff.
We are currently hiring candidates with proven outdoor work experience from all nationalities and walks of life currently residing in Singapore or about to move here from abroad with a valid EP holder.
