One of the best things about ZooLab has got to be working with an incredible team! Each month, Ranger Anna will interview a member of the ZooLab family.
This month we will be speaking to administrator, David Mackie!
Hi David, how long have you worked for ZooLab?
I have worked with ZooLab for just over 5 years.
What is your role within the company?
I work in the Admin Department and responsible for looking after our North and South West Ranger's diaries.
To put that into perspective, David looks after the diaries for everyone below - no mean feat.
What is something you love about working for ZooLab?
The end of the day (kidding, honest)! I love the people that I work with and that everyday can be completely different!
At ZooLab, as you pointed out everyday is different! Can you think of a day which was completely out of the ordinary for you?
I once received a phone call from what I thought was a customer, saying:
"Hi, it's Cara from the Sugar Glider Tank!"
I was about to ask Cara for her postcode to find out where the venue 'Sugar Glider Tank' was, when I realised it was actually my colleague Cara who had gotten stuck in our sugar glider enclosure... Once we worked it out, we went to her rescue!
Tell us a little about yourself! What's your favourite food?
I love seafood!!! I'm a big fan of chips with curry sauce, as well. In fact anything with curry sauce. Hmm, there's also steak pie. You know what? I just love food!
You wake up and get out of bed, now what? What do you do to prepare for the day?
I must have a cup of coffee in the morning! I'm like a different person without it.
What are some hobbies you have?
I am actually quite boring. Does eating, watching Netflix and going to sleep count as a hobby? My dog Ziva has taken over my life!
If you were an animal, what would it be?
A meerkat - only because I think I look like one - or a penguin, they are hilarious!
You are stranded on a desert island and can only bring 3 things - what are they?
My phone, a knife and a hammock.
What is something you're really proud of that you have accomplished?
