Center Parcs
    Woburn Forest Village - Bedfordshire

    Job description

    The trepidation and excitement of Christmas is magical for all children. It’s a wonderful time of the year and at the heart of their experience is Santa. Every year he sees thousands of children and each time they leave with smiles on their faces.

    From the moment you step into the red suit you’ll be totally focused on the job at hand, regaling stories from the North Pole and asking children about their Christmas list. Whatever question they ask, you’ll ensure that the magic is sprinkled and the anticipation of Christmas Eve heightened.

    Your confident, kind and jolly nature will be backed by the ability to say “Ho, Ho, Ho” with plenty of enthusiasm. You will also need to be able to engage and build a rapport with people of all ages.

    Experience of sign language would certainly add value to your application.

    Due to the sensitive nature of this role the successful applicant will be required to undergo a Disclosure and Barring Service (formerly CRB) Check. This disclosure, together with other selection information, will need to be satisfactory to the Company for employment to commence.

    Please note this is a fixed-term contract until 24 December 2022.

    We have various fixed-term, part-time contracts available with a variety of shift patterns. Flexibility will be required as our village is open 365 days of the year, so you may need to be able to work some weekends on a rota basis.


    Essential requirements:

    • Excellent communication and customer care skills

    Desirable requirements:

    • Previous experience of working with children
    • Previous acting / entertainment experience
